“Better of the Burke William series.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Very nice reception and good service. The place is clean with lots of amenities. Even a petite rope if you ask for one. The showers were good and areas are nicely spaces out. The saturday i went was a little crowded. The quiet spa area was not observed as 4 women sat in the quiet jaccuzi and chatted. It was not pleasant but it was tolerable. I guess these women either didnt read the signs or just ignored them.

The staff was very courteous and attentive. My massage was very calming and relaxing. The outdoor area and waiting area were all nicely decorated. I would go back again.

“Bad Energy, Bad Vibe....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Overpriced and underdone. Nowadays with the amount of options available in LA, why anyone would choose to come here I don't know.

“Lovely girls day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I thought I'd been to a fair number of day spas, but this one was much more than I expected for an indoor day spa. The changing rooms were warm and clean. The social hot tub was large and spacious. The quiet tub was calming and relaxing. The misting rooms were small, but adequate. I had a paraffin massage, which I do not recommend unless you're looking for torture and discomfort to round out your day of relaxation. It was as advertised, but I now know it's not a treatment for me. VERY hot wax painted on you, scraped off, and then you're walked through the spa to the showers. Not fun. But the facial that came with it was lovely. Too much hard sell on the products, but that's standard. At least they waited until checkout for that, not DURING the facial.
