Paraty Spa Days is a great event and I was happy to have another great experience at Shambhala Day Spa with my best girl friend, who was visiting from the Caribbean. We had a great coconut body scrub, an amazing shower with a lovely view of Jabaquara beach. After we had a full body massage and my massage therapist, Luciana,... More

I dropped in late to the Shambhala spa unannounced. The receptionist was extremely helpful and had a wonderful way about her. She offered me water and a comfy chair to sit in and the price list whilst she finished off preparing a room. The building is a wooden construction and had some precious stones dotted around. It was extremely tranquil... More

Shambhala Day Spa is a great place to go when in Paraty. Beautiful views, great atmosphere, amazing treatments and service. We loved the Lulur therapy, great coconut scrub, relaxing massage and just right temperature furô. The fruit salad and the glass of chilled wine completed a perfect romantic date.

Thank you Matisse, for sharing this experience - the Balinese Lulur package is indeed an excellent choice for a romantic and relaxing late afternoon. Hope to see you both again soon! More

My friend and I decided to visit this spa after a very wet and rainy time in Paraty! The receptionist and masseurs were extremely polite and welcoming. The massage choices are extensive, and the quality of service was high. The facility itself is very clean and modern, and is in a quiet location set back off the road. Price wise,... More

This spa delivers an absolutely perfect experience. Their treatments are incredible, reasonable, and delivered by a staff with great energy! We met the owners, who are wonderful and kind. The house is so peaceful and quiet, as well. We went almost every single night we were in Paraty. If you're looking for a great spa there, or anywhere... you should... More

If for no other reason, you need to visit Paraty to go to this day spa!! After a month travelling South America, a friend and I stumbled across this on trip advisor, and being massage enthusiasts, we had to go! We booked a couples 'Lulur' deal (cheaper than having individual packages) and had a full body exfoliation scrub, 1hr deep... More

I spent a couple of days in Paratí with a friend and we had bad luck with the weather, so we decided to treat ourselves and go to the spa. Very good decision! It is a ten minute walk from the old town center, very good service, lovingly decorated interior, moderately priced, and well worth your time. When we arrived,... More

THE place for a relaxing, professional massage - an unexpected treat. Available at several pousadas in Parati, but Hans will also pick you up and bring you back to the bridge by car, which is definitely worth doing: a beautiful house, fully equipped and well organised, friendly and trained staff. Make a note!

My wife and I opted for the "honeymoon" package that the spa offers, it was in a word, amazing.
