I've had a Balinese massage in Bali, and a Swedish massage in Sweden, but never have I gotten a better massage than with Natasha at the Sanctuary Spa. I can't really add anything more than what has already been said in previous reviews. A bit pricey but worth it if you can afford it.

I have tried a few spas in the Charleston area and this is by far the best. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was great. I had a terrific massage and will be back.

I have visited numerous spas around the world and the USA and this place ranks in the upper 10% of those I've been to. The staff is friendly and helpful. The therapist I went to for a customized facial was amazing. The atmosphere is tranquil and lends to your overall relaxing experience. The spa has gender specific vitality pools as... More

Talk about pampering! I was able to sneak away from the family this afternoon and enjoy the "Citrus Head to Toe" massage. Got there about an hour early to enjoy the jacuzzi and women's solarium (there is also a couples solarium that I did not go in to). I was greeted promptly by my masseuse Greg. He was warm and...

I can't even tell you why but I have never been so relaxed at a spa in my life than I was during my 50 minutes Reflexology treatment here. We arrived early to enjoy the amenities, you are greeted and taken into separate men and women's locker rooms. The place is immaculate and the staff is very friendly and professional.... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by the subtle changes implemented by the Sanctuary Spa staff! The property has always been gorgeous. The solarium is a wonderfully tranquil sunroom serving delicious house made granola bars, hot tea and fruit infused water. Its a great place to relax before your treatment. Or enter the mineral pool, sauna and steam room area for... More

One word to explain the facial I received from Gigi. AMAZING. If I didn't live in WA state I would have a standing monthly appointment. If you want to experience the softest touch ask for Gigi. I'm

The mineral whirlpool is awesome with several jets featured under water to focus on different parts of your back, legs and feet. Try to get there early too enjoy this part as long as possible. Great place for a girl's trip!
