The hot stone massage I had with Lauren was one of the most relaxing & restorative massages I've ever had. Lauren has gifted hands and kind energy.

I've been to a lot of different spas and massage spots around Santa Fe but this has been my favorite. The spa is located in the Madeleine Inn, a quiet B&B in downtown Santa Fe. Even though I haven't stayed at the hotel, the atmosphere was warm, friendly, and cozy. It was a very tranquil and peaceful place. The staff... More

I had a 60 minute Masters Massage at Nirvana and couldn't be happier. The spa area is relaxing, zen, clean and simple and the massage itself was excellent. As it was a Master Massage, the treatment was with a very experienced employee - in my case, Elenya. Elenya was friendly and had a wonderful peace about her that immediately put... More

My daughter and I both had some serious de-stressing to do and Absolute Nirvana Spa & Gardens is the perfect way to do that! I had the Stress Buster massage-absolute bliss! My daughter had a Ginger special massage which she said was the best massage she has ever had. If I am back in Santa Fe, this will be the... More

My husband and I both booked massages at Absolute Nirvana Spa during a long weekend stay in Santa Fe. We were thoroughly impressed by our massage therapists. My husband's male therapist was very professional/skilled and put him at ease immediately. I got a wonderful prenatal massage that helped soothe some tight muscles and contributed to a relaxing, stress-free weekend. We... More

You are smart to take time now to enjoy special experiences with your husband: as you know, once you have children it can be challenging to find time for romantic times together, let alone rest & relaxation. It is good to read that we helped you relax and loosen up tight muscles. Pregnancy can be hard on a body! Best... More

My husband gave me a totally prepaid (tax and tips, etc.) giftcard to Nirvana for an hour and a half massage and an hour facial. I'd never even heard of Nirvana and put off making an appointment for almost 3 months,especially as we live almost 50 miles away from Santa Fe. Had I known in advance what a lovely setting... More

Absolute Nirvana is a professional and peaceful spa that offers the best pumpkin/brown sugar scrub and massage treatment I have ever had. My therapist Lauren was amazing and friendly...the shower was awesome! I will definitely be making my way back here all the way from the east coast!

We certainly do appreciate you writing in about your Pumpkin Decadence at Absolute Nirvana Spa. Since we make all of our scrubs and masks in-house, shortly before each treatment, they are totally fresh and real. Couple that with Lauren's fantastic abilities as a massage therapist (she has been a therapist for over 25 years now, and just keeps getting better!),... More
