Agains't my better judgement I decided to return to Holtz Spa. Don't be fooled they aren't closed, just relocated. Doesn't really matter though since it's still a horrible place to go. Running from their Trip Advisor review history it seems since on here it says closed. Massage was actually ok however the environment is the loudest and most non relaxing... More

I visited the Holtz Spa to enjoy a white chocolate truffle body wrap. What an amazing experience! My therapist, Buki, is skilled at her work and the treatment left my skin feeling better than ever before. I loved the experience of being wrapped cocoon-style and then lowered into the Amazing Hausler flotation bed. Hotlz Spa is a top-notch world class... More

Avoid this spa as they don't care to inform the clients about the changes in locations or hours of your appointments. I have booked an appointment for a facial treatment one month in advance and when I get there to have my treatment I realized that they moved away from the old location, but nobody informed me about the change....

Was assured everything was ok, no hint that there was a possibility of cancellation, was told access to the building was as usual. Came home from work at midnight to a... More

it's a good location close to my hotel. but frankly speaking it's too commercial and you don't feel welcome, i didn't feel relaxed, u can feel they are only there for the money, focused more on sales than customer experience. And there is politics between the spa employees and they bring it up in front of the clients. They push... More

Terrible customer service leaving me without time to book somewhere else. They originally rebooked me 45 minutes later which I accommodated only to send me a note 30 minutes later to cancel.

I had an Arizona La Stone therapy massage done with Christine. She used warm stones to massage my body. I've never felt more relaxed! She got rid of any tension/knots I had with deep heat, using a special technique that worked like magic. Christine was very sweet, professional and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I have already recommended... More

I have gone in for treatments to this spa a few times and was satisfied with the result of the treatment however not the overall experience. Hope this experience helps if you are trying to decide where to go... By far the best treatments I have had at Holtz were their facials - from signature to regular - and I... More
