We spent the weekend at The Henderson for our anniversary. It exceeded our expectations! Service was perfection from all staff. It is a beautiful resort. Room was gorgeous! Very clean and spacious! Gym is great with everything you need and more. Very easy walk to beautiful private beach. We had a wonderful dinner at Primrose. Food and service both excellent. The spa is one of the best I’ve been to. So beautiful! Great service! Lovely amenities to enjoy with any spa service like Himalayan salt room, lavender steam room, experiential shower, hot tub and a beautiful relaxion room with snacks. Highly recommend The Henderson and look forward to our next visit.
We loved staying at The Henderson. The furnishings are so lovely and the staff very friendly. We highly recommend this resort. Every detail has been covered with the design of this facility. Just very well done!
