    Spa was wonderful
    What a great experience! Mary was wonderful! Highly recommend the spa! Limited lunch and drinks at the spa pool area. Might be better to eat at the hotel restaurant then go back to the spa pool for more privacy.

    Wonderful
    I visited Spa Avania on June 9, 2024 with friends. The deep tissue massage with Colleen was perfect. All of the staff from check in, locker rooms to pool service were friendly and attentive. There were so many amenities (steam room, whirlpool, hot tub, cold plunge, pool) that we stayed all day. I will definitely be back.

    Best facial and massage I’ve ever had!
    This is a wonderful facility with a wet and dry sauna, mineral pool, and the best staff. It was great for my group of 6 celebrating by sisters 50th birthday. We were all very happy with our services I had a baber facial by Regina and it was the best facial I have ever had. She recommended products that were best for my skin and never pushed any spa products. She has worked there for over 15 years which says a lot about her skill and how much she is valued. Her recommendation to use niacinamide 10% to reduce my pore size worked! I truly appreciate Regina! I also had a massage which is wonderful. Unfortunately I cannot remember my therapists name.

The price of this is top dollar even if you are a resident and the details definitely do not command top dollar. Service upon entry is great, but extremely slow and not detailed after that. The towels had holes in them, the robe I was wearing needed to be repaired, the hot tub wasn’t hot and my spa services were not deep tissue, but relaxation. To top it off I requested a female masseuse a male was provided, this is not a big deal but not what I ordered. The most I would give this is three stars

Went here on Friday for my bachelorette spa day and this was nothing less than perfect! Right from check in, everyone is so nice and helpful. They checked all 6 of us in and then toured us around the facilities.

Our treatments, we could not stop talking about. They were great and really were relaxing.

The facilities, were so clean and the staff was so nice! After/in between our treatments we had some time to hang by the mineral pool or go in to the sauna's and everyone was so helpful. We were able to order lunch by the pool and the waiter was so nice and sweet.

Overall, this is a great place to go for bachelorette parties! Even though they couldn't fit in 6 girls into treatment rooms all at once, the facilities filled the time gap of waiting for the next treatment! We started at 11:30 and ended by 4PM. If you have a large group, this is where you want to go!

I had a 12:45 appointment but wanted to make the most of my day so I checked in at 8:30 AM to enjoy all of the amenities. All of the staff, especially Martina and Kami, were so welcoming and hospitable. I received a tour of the grounds, received a locker with a comfy robe and slippers, and was told anything I needed just ask. This was absolutely true. I used the gym in the morning, then sat by the gorgeous fireplace with a cup of tea, then laid in the sun, took a soak in the mineral pool, then enjoyed a DELICIOUS lunch of shrimp tacos (the best I've ever had) and a nice pour of sauvignon blanc wine. After lunch, I took another dip in the mineral pool, then the hot tub, dry sauna, and wet sauna. I showered and was ready for my 90 minute massage. Colleen was superb and I was completely relaxed. I cannot say enough good things about Spa Avana. As a local (recently moved here from out of state), I cannot wait to return and I highly recommend to all!

I can see why many people love this spa. If you’ve never been to a day spa it is nice. If you’ve traveled and been to a lot of day spas then you might not be as impressed as others. The staff is wonderful for sure. The massage I got was definitely not the best.. not the worst either, just ok. I would not do it again here, just didnt do what I had asked for.
My one complaint I do have is the hot spa (pool) in the women’s area looked rather disgusting so I did not go in it. I did mention it on my way out to the front desk. Just looked really dirty, unhealthy. The ice cold one looked wonderful and took advantage of that, first time and loved it.
The traffic was rather annoying when your relaxing in the pool , I thought that was quite odd, I have never experienced traffic noise at a spa before.
I did like the dry sauna the best. Nice and clean. No mold.
My daughter and I did the salt room together. My first time so it was interesting but I actually found a salt room in Vegas that is better so I would not be doing this one again either.
SO all and all.. for ME — I would come here again for the dry sauna.

We spent the entire day at the spa! The services were top notch and very relaxing. The mineral pool was just the private space we needed to enjoy the day. Just make sure you book the services before you get there to ensure they are not already full!

This spa is one of the best we've ever been to. The facilities are amazing, beautiful, and the service is outstanding. The spa staff is knowledgeable and well trained. Make this a whole day experience to enjoy the facilities (pool, quite areas, steam sauna, whirlpool, etc. Food and beverages are very good and the service is top notch. Pricing for treatments, F/B are very reasonable.

Spent the day here with 7 friends for a 40th birthday celebration. Everyone was able to get the spa service of their choice and then meet up at the pool. Pool was gorgeous. Perfectly shaded and tranquil. Food was yummy and drinks were cold! A wonderful day spent with dear friends!

We had a lovely ladies day at the spa! Our day began in the clean and well appointed gym with a great workout. The spa itself is lovely and has all the amenities needed. So, after the gym we bathed in the hot tub and took time to enjoy the sauna and steam room. Once all relaxed, all three of us enjoyed our massages at the hands of our experienced masseuses. The massage rooms were clean and had lovely touches like warmed towels to go under your head and shoulders!

After our massages we had lunch by the pool and the pool wait staff were friendly and quick with our light lunch!

It was a lovely day!
