When in Rome....

Rome Salon and Day Spa, in West Avenue, is officially open. Over the past few months they have already shown their generosity by hosting numerous charity events. The spa is an elegant oasis located in the heart of Kirby. The executive director, Zahira Coll, has international spa management experience, and it shows in every detail of the service and products available. We highly recommend the mani/pedi scrub and massage, while you relax in a specially-made recliner overlooking the treetops that line the complex. Indulge yourself in some pampering!
