I, on the owner's recommendation, tried the "Fusion Massage". While not all of the styles were to my personal taste, it was obvious that Amos knew his stuff. He studied massage therapy in Costa Rica for 5 years, and it shows. Personally, the the deep tissue part of the massage was best and most helpful to me as a weight... More

I have had massage all over the world for hundreds an hour at 5-star spas, to $3 an hour on the street all over Thailand. Amos at Balance Spa is up there with the best. Through our broken Spanish, he says he is in training. However, I am sure he will quickly regarded as an expert. He was adept at... More

While staying at La Bocona I took advantage of Balance Spa's massage services. I booked a massage via email before arriving, and had a massage w/reflexology the evening I arrived ($25). It was so good that I booked another regular massage ($20) for the following evening. I believe that my massage therapist's name was Wilma. For such a petite woman... More

I had a massage at the Balance Spa, and it was really wonderful. The lady masseuse was excellent, and really knew what she was doing. If you're after a massage which really triggers problem area and gets those knots out then this is your place! Thoroughly enjoyed it and if it hadn't of been my last day in Granada I... More

On a recent trip to Granada, my girlfriend and I enjoyed massages at Balance Spa. Amos and his colleague were professional, friendly and definitely knew what they were doing! The atmosphere of the spa is airy, quiet and relaxing, and sets the mood before the massage even starts. We opted for the regular massage, which included cupping, and we both... More

just recently we stayed in La Bocona hotel (Balance Spa is located inside this hotel). We had treatments every day. the service is very professional, plus treatments are both medical (you can have cupping, acupuncture, chinese massage etc.) and relaxing. we slept like babies after them. Again try at least one treatment with the doctor himself: he is very professional).

My wife and I just came back from a 2 for 1 promo of the fusion massage, and we are floating! They were very kind and welcoming, good vibes all around. We both enjoyed our much needed massages...every part of it..the shiatsu, chinese cupping, hot stone therapy, and therapeutic massages hit the spot and we will definitely be back for... More
