    can i ask for the Laguna Spa & Massage, do we need to pre-book them? Is it usually veri crowded? Do they do massage for guys as well?

  2. Pauline says:

    we’ve never tried that, we’ve only tried the spa within Harris Resort itself.
    I’ve heard from forums that u’d need to call and book appointment for Laguna Spa & Massage before you go there though.
