I have had hot stone massages at several spas over the years and I am surprised by how different they have been from one another. This was the first I have found that also (very sparingly) uses ice-cold stones-- a pleasing contrast, as it turns out. And the massage itself was first-rate.

We were staying at the Madeline Inn where this spa is located. We had driven 7 hours and thought it would feel good to get a massage. This turned out to be one of the best massages ever.

I visited Absolute Nirvana in late March 2014 to indulge in their Lemongrass & Coconut Indulgence Deluxe Spa Treatment just a few hours after my arrival to Santa Fe (my first time visiting) while I tried to occupy a few hours waiting for friends who were driving from Denver. This treatment was one of the most decadent and luxurious two... More

My husband and I made a choice to book the Absolute Nirvana Spa over others in the area because this place was located in the downtown area and was small but cozy and quite. The ladies were very attentive to us and we had a wonderful experience. Would love to go back when I'm in the area,

Loved how close Absolute Nirvana is to the central plaza. Thoroughly enjoyed my massage and the pumpkin scrub was to deliciously delightful! Katarina makes you feel right at home the minute you enter the spa!

My aunt and I travel to Santa Fe each year for the Opera Festival. The trip would not be complete without our visit to the Absolute Nirvana Spa. I usually have the facial. My skin is always so thankful for the experience. The setting is magical and the mood serene. Everyone is very nice, accommodating, and peaceful. That contributes to... More

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.
