I had a 110 min. massage and scrub. It was worth the money just to sit in a quite jetted tub filled with bubbles for 30 min. The massage was great. I was a little sore the next day put that is how stressed I was. Very quite and very clean. Definitely going back!

I booked both a facial and massage this most recent experience. The aesthetician, Liz, not only conducts a consolation but delivered the best facial yet again! I highly recommend this spa for the ultimate relaxation getaway - the environment is breathtaking and the services were exceptional!!!

She has a gentle touch and doesnt jerk you around like most nail techs. My gels have lasted for about 3 weeks and still look amazing! highly recommend. They great thing... More

We booked one of the couple's packages and it was amazing. We had a private Jacuzzi before the service and then one hour and a half massages that were really impressive. My therapist listened to all my requests and she dealt with my shoulder problem. I feel so much more relaxed and the pain is gone! My husband has back... More

I took a ten mile jog and finished with a scheduled massage to rub out the agony of the jog. Roy is the owner and was my therapist and he put the goods on my and solved problems. It was fantastic and Roy knows his craft. Great place. Great service. Left feeling solid, not rickety.

I had a wonderful experience only due to my masseuse Robin. I recommend the Sea Salt Glow treatment (55 minutes) which includes 10-15 wonderful minutes in a relaxing aromatherapy jet bath, hot oil massage, and sea salt scrub. The salt is washed off by shower heads placed above the table. I was disappointed with the facilities because I purchased a... More

Recently visited The Spa On The Plaza for a massage. Was disappointed. My massage was fair. After any massage I've ever had, the therapist meets the guest in the hallway with a glass of water. None was offered. Of the only two showers, one had no hot water. When I found the one hairbrush to blow dry my hair with,... More

I've been a customer of this spa for over 10 years, and was a faithful customer..so I was beyond disappointed when after a long and difficult week, I came into the spa for a massage/facial package and received services that were beyond sub-par. My appointment had been scheduled for 10am. The massage therapist picked me up quarter after..."no big deal",... More

I had a great facial with Liz. She clearly loves what she does, and this shows in the results on your face. Her suggestions were good and not presented in a pushy way, and she was great at explaining how/why to use the samples. The spa is a very relaxing place overall and I found the staff to be friendly,... More

After searching the Peninsula for months trying to find the best place for a brow wax, this is it. One of the few (or the only) salon that uses hard wax on the Peninsula (hard wax is usually more gentle on the skin, more precise and usually gives a much better result). The ambiance was lovely, front desk staff very... More
