When I return in February I will book with the same masseuse. Solved problem of walking to Madeleine and then outdoors once again - about 15 feet - by wearing comfortable exercise clothes and coat, easy to slip out and into again. Not a problem, it's very private as the B and B's and Spa are set back.

Great place for a relaxing time. The staff are very friendly and focused. Nirvana has a strong reputation in the area. The only comment I have is that the spa areas are outside of the main building - this is also a B&B, so if you want to walk in a robe and slippers, it's a little too public to... More

I am delighted that you enjoyed your treatment at Absolute Nirvana Spa, and that you heard a lot of great reviews of our spa from Santa Fe locals. We are indeed located in the back gardens of The Madeleine Inn, where spa guests initially check in. After meeting their therapists, guests are brought to the spa itself, where they are... More

I walked into Absolute Nirvana with a doubt that it could live up to a rejuvenating experience my wife and I had in Bali a decade ago. Not only did we walk out feeling younger, but my masseuse also applied just the right measure of pressure to help me bounce back from a nasty fall I'd suffered on an icy... More

Parking was bit of a challenge during Church service. Went into main area with a nice victorian looking sitting room. I was called back for a massage and scrub the masseuse pulled and gave me a pretty hard massage. I thought it was just the kind my friend ordered but after talking with her she had a different and more... More

I deeply regret that you did not thoroughly enjoy your experience at Absolute Nirvana Spa. It is true that on Sunday mornings the nearby church-goers take a lot of the neighborhood parking, though we tend to have ample parking in our lots if there is nothing available on the street itself. As for the massage, it is most unfortunate that... More

It was absolute nirvana, to be sure! Parking is not in a traditional parking lot and when I got out, I walked in the back looking for what would be the entrance to the spa. I think I was in someone's yard! I decided to enter a hotel entrance (B&B) and that's when I discovered this is where one checks... More

O M G! What a wonderful time at this spa. The surrounding area/buildings kept this so serene and relaxing. The massage itself was absolutely the best!

My boyfriend took me to Santa Fe in Sept. of 2009. I went to Absolute Nirvana for a facial and a massage! It was my first time to have a facial and massage!

I had my spa day planned as part of my Santa Fe, NM experience. I am from Birmingham, AL and work in the spa industry there. We were greeted by Diane, a warm and friendly receptionist who served us citrus water and insisted we relax before our treatments. We were then introduced to our first therapists (Janice & Lauren) who... More
