Serenity Spa Welcomes New Owner

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

JAMES CITY-Serenity Spa on Jamestown Road is under new ownership.

Rhonda LaViolette took over the business in August 2020 after serving as front desk coordinator and later manager of the spa.

Serenity Spa, which first opened 15 years ago, provides a variety of services including massages, facials, waxing, body wraps and scrubs, and nail and hair care services.

“We also have an infrared sauna that is great for detox, weight loss, arthritis, and many other benefits,” LaViolette said.

LaViolette, who has been with Serenity Spa since nearly the beginning, is looking to expand her staff of 11 and add a few new services but is keeping mum on the details for now.

“My favorite aspect of the job is catching up with my regular clients and meeting new clients,” LaViolette said. “I am definitely a people person and want to make sure each and every person that walks through my door is extremely happy with their services.”

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
