My husband and I visited this spa toward the end of our trip. Everyone was very friendly! My husband said it was the best massage he had ever had, and he is hard to please, he usually says they don't do it hard enough. I had an hour and a half massage also and it was great! I do like... More

I booked several weeks in advance for my friend and I to have a full body massage and paraffin body wrap. We arrived 15 minutes for our treatments, filled out the forms and were on our way. We were led downstairs to a shared change room. It was a very tiny space, with enough lockers for 9 - 10 people.... More

I booked this visit for my wife and I as a "just for fun thing to do. I had seen some reviews about Absolute Spa online and expected greatness. We had gone to Scandinave Spa in Whistler before which set the bar high and that was amazing. But I digress. The girl at reception was not pleasant. Robotic without smile... More

I booked several treatments for an afternoon of pampering. I had a body buff, mud wrap, deep tissue massage and a pedicure for a total of $400 after a $20 hotel coupon discount. Overall an okay experience. I didn't like that there's no private change rooms - just one room that people kept walking in and out of. I found... More

I was very excited to go to the Absolute Spa at the Century Plaza however, it did not meet my expectations - especially given the prices. I received two treatments - a massage and pedicure. Both of the treatments were very good and I have no complaints. However, the facility was MUCH below my expectations. The change rooms, pool, steamroom... More

I booked a bridal party pedicure for my friend at the Absolute Spa at the Century 2 months in advance. Upon arrival the entire experience was horrible. Although I had requested 5 gel pedicures, we were informed half way through that only 3 of the aesthetician's were capable of working with gel. The bride was told that her colour may... More

Celebrating a Stagette for the bride to be. PROS: Walking distance from the West End. I had an awesome deep tissue massage from Armin the RMT. Refreshing Eucalyptus steam room. Energizing heated pool, felt like I was swimming in Hawaii beach temperature water. CONS: Massage room are close to foot traffic, so it might get noisy during your massage. Lounge... More

When my wife and I arrived, the front reception area seemed nice, then a staff member gave us a tour of the amenities. We arrived early to take advantage of the pool and steam room. What a waste of time that was. The pool was very blah and dingy. There were a lot of exposed, rusty pipes that looked horrible.... More

I was very excited to try Absolute Spa with three of my girlfriends. We normally go to Spa Utopia but decided to try a different spa and agreed on Absolute at the Century Plaza. From the greeting at reception which did not make me feel welcome, to the sub standard pedicure I reveived (my nails were not filed properly and... More
