I LOVE MARTHA! She has been one of the most healing people in my life. Her energy is incredible. She is very intuitive and every time I have gotten a massage from her, she can pinpoint things in my life based on where I may have tension. She is such a beautiful human, she is so good at what she does and I have become a regular client seeing her often. P.S. She loves dogs! I have TWO puppies who smother her with affection and she loves it.

Absolutely wonderful experience here! A little different than the states (bring your own towel, no robes, etc) but you get amazing service for a very reasonable price. Went with a friend during our vacation to Ecuador and we both were thrilled with our experience. There was great communication via WhatsApp when booking and getting to our appointment. Would go again in a heartbeat if I was in Quito.

The good part is the staff are friendly. That’s where all compliments stop. I completely understand different countries have their own standards for practices and facilities. And this is not an expensive spa so my expectations were low from the beginning.

I enjoy having massages and facials everywhere I travel. Trip Advisor has this spa rated #1, there has to be a spa with better facilities and services in Quito. I am sharing this so if you’re looking to get away and have a relaxing experience, you will search harder than I did to find better services.

I took photos of the massage tables where we received our massage and facial. The tables are hard plastic and not cushioned well. The neck/face support is a black neck rest that is at least 1.5 inches thick. It’s old and hard, my head ached the whole time. I kept moving it around, trying to find a comfortable position but could not. It was clear to me their staff, although kind and appreciative, they don’t have the products they need to provide relaxation. Also the product they used on my face for the facial had a peppermint vibe to it so it was not comfortable on my skin as it was applied. Also, we were told to bring our own towels. If this is truly the best Quito has to offer, there’s wonderful opportunities for a new spa in town.

Wonderful experience today at essential day spa :) I had a hour meditaranean full body massage and a 1 hour facial. Both were exceptional and very professional. Soothing music, essential oils diffusing, and good price. I feel new. Highly recommend! Also it's right near the botanical gardens stop there before or after!

I had the absolute best experience at Essential Day Spa! The whole staff was so welcoming and kind. I went in for a massage and Michelle did such a great job. I asked for a deep tissue massage and most massages they don’t get deep enough, but Michelle was able to get deep into my muscles and really loosen up my tight back and shoulders. I get massages almost every time I’m in a new country to see what techniques are used and my massage at Essential Day Spa was easily one of the best I’ve ever had! Then, the owner noticed the sunburn on my face from this strong Ecuador sun and gave me an amazing facial. When I was done, my sunburn was gone as you can see in the photo! I had such a great experience and hope to be back again one day. I wish them much success in their business!

I had an amazing experience at this spa! Not only did they squeeze me in last minute, my Mediterranean massage was wonderful, and very affordable. The essential oils they used were amazing and it was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. The staff was so kind and really took the effort to talk to me (and let me practice my Spanish!!). They also kindly let me wait there for my Uber. I recommend this place to everyone and I am definitely coming back.

I'm in town for two weeks due to dental procedures. I wanted to feel pampered and special without breaking the bank! This place offers a variety of massages. I got the bamboo massage, which was extremely relaxing and invigorating. The mint essential oils woke up my senses. I left floating on cloud nine but not before my nature's sunshine chlorophyll drink, delicious!!

I am so happy that I found this spa while visiting Quito! I had my massage done by Mateo and he was professional, friendly, courteous, and provided excellent service! I chose the volcanic stone massage (Masajes con piedras volcánicas) and it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life. The inside of the facility is also very calm and tranquil. I also received a relaxing facial from Martha to combat my sunburn. She did a great job and was super friendly. I will certainly be back when I return to Quito! I love this facility!

By far one of the best experiences I ever had. I'm from Ecuador and everytime I come back home its been a challenge trying ti find all I need in one spot, but this time was different. From the beginning Mateo helped me and advised throughout my whole experience.
Friendly staff and great massages.
Must go if you're in Quito

We found Martha and Michelle at Essential Day Spa welcoming and well trained in massage. The spa itself was spotless, quiet and just a great atmosphere. We visited before heading south to Cuenca and onward to the Galapagos and another visit on our return to Quito. Highly recommended!!! A very pleasant experience for a very modest price.
