I had an amazing experience here, the massage was intense and exactly what I needed. I felt so loose and relaxed the next day it was amazing. I will warn you it will take you a day to integrate the deep body work they perform here. Sandy has created a rustic, and authentic experience not to be found anywhere else.... More

I have camped for weeks at a time from rainforests to deserts, while hiking, cycle touring or kayaking. Nature is my refuge. I am comfortable in jungles with single track trails. Yet this jungle spa lacks care and style. It is needs a makeover to lend warmth and trust. Instead it feels like a tourist trap with a creepy vibe.... More

My friends and I had the most wonderful experience today with the staff at the original Jungle. Spa. Minutes from town, tucked away in the solace of the jungle, we were welcomed by Sandra after emailing reservations from home.
