Clean, quick, professional

Its a bit of a pretentious place but you will get what you are looking for. I had a pedicure - very professional, pleasant and good job. A little pricey.

The staff was very courteous, friendly and provided over the top service! From the second my friend and I arrived we didn't want for anything. As soon as our coats were hung they had filled our hands with drinks and the second we mentioned we were hungry they sent for a waiter from the delicous restaurant next door (Sante). I... More

I had services from Grace, a senior hair stylist, and she was fabulous. Also wonderfully skilled was Buki, the esthetician. All that worked there were friendly and caring.

I’d heard my friends say really great things about it before so when I decided to book a massage after a stressful month at work, Holtz Spa was the first place I thought of. I went with the Swedish... More

Overall, I would say it... More

Terrible service. The manager of the salon was giving one of the girls a hard time in front of the clients. She was crying and it was very uncomfortable. If you include your tip in your payment and don't give it directly to your stylist, etc. the company takes a percentage of it. The equipment for manicures, pedicures is run... More
