This is a must do while on vacation in Destin. They do the best massages and facials. I also had a manicure that was great. The shop is located in a small strip mall but don't let that fool you, the shop is very nice. I wish Krystal would move to our area. She has the magic touch.

The Emerald Sanctuary is just what the name implies. A great massage,facials or mani-pedi within an hour and a half notice. Novelty atmosphere and knowledgable professionals to ease sore and aching muscles.

My fiance and I got a massage here while on vacation. While the building is not your typical spa building and they do not have a steam room or shower, they do give one heck of a massage. I would recommend this to anyone on vacation that needs a little time from the beach! The couples massage was great, people... More

My wife gets massages all the time, but I do not. We arrived and were promptly greeted by a male therapist who was very easy going. He talked to both of us briefly as we filled out the the required form and was very entertaining. The other female therapist came in the room and joined in the interview process. She... More

I recently had the good fortune of being able to spend a month in the Sandestin, Florida area. I spent almost every day on the beach. Needless to say, I got a lot of sun and my skin became very dry. Before I left, I searched for a hydrating treatment. I looked at all the salon reviews and treatments offered... More

I recently purchased a Groupon and tried Emerald Sanctuary for the first time. While the waiting area is very small with limited seating, they got me back for my appointment quickly and started on time. My therapist, Katy, was fantastic. Most therapists ask where you'd like to concentrate and then do a standard massage without addressing your needs. Katy listened... More

I read reviews for this place and all were outstanding....that's why I encouraged my bf to buy this. He bought the ONE HOUR couples massage for $69 on Groupon. It was worth that, I wouldn't have been very happy if we'd paid full price. Our appointment was at 10am, the massage started at 1010...it was over by 1050. That's NOT... More

This was the best massage I have ever received. I'm not a big fan of strong hands, but my husband is. During our couples massage he was basically beaten and I was touched tenderly as requested. We loved it! You will not find these prices anywhere else!

Water is clean, the beach white as snow, this is a beautiful place to come and get away.
