Stuck on the below sentence not sure where the commas are supposed to go

See example:

The adjoining mall has provided spaces for a spa, with the warmth, and comfort, placing the user in a rare habitat in the area.

I think you have more problems here, Laurie, than the commas.  The sentence is difficult to follow.  You start by talking about the mall, but end by describing (I think) the spa.  You have a confusing modifier the way it is written.


The mall has spaces (plural) for a spa (singular).  These should both be plural or singular to match each other.  Is the spa already there or not?  Having a space for a spa indicates it is not.  But “placing the user” indicates that it is.  I wouldn’t call a spa a “rare habitat.”  A habitat is natural home or environment where an animal lives.  A spa is man-made and is not a home.  Is having a spa at a mall that rare?  Perhaps it is in your area. 


I’m not sure how to rewrite this for you because I’m not exactly sure what you really want to say.  You should probably make this into two sentences.
