I admit that my wife and I were attracted to this alternative to our hotel spa due to both the reviews and a price that was around $40 less each for deep tissue massages...but we were richly rewarded for the 7 minute drive.

This quaint little compound of zen-exuding buildings is very nice, and Kelleen gave me one of the best massages I've had anywhere in the world. Ask for her by name! My wife was equally blown away with her female masseuse.

Surroundings are very relaxing, and they even have full bathtub relaxation treatments in addition to facials, etc.

Strongly recommend!

Was in Santa Fe visiting for a solo babymoon. The ladies at Absolute Nirvana took such good care of me. I had a hydrating facial booked with Kelleen which was beyond relaxing. I loved her energy. I didn’t want it to end so I booked another prenantal massage with Heidi for the following day. She went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable, used the correct amount of pressure, and I left there feeling so much better in my ever growing/changing body. Absolute Nirvana is the perfect name for this spa, as that is exactly how I felt leaving. Thank you!

Visiting this spa is an invigorating, and at the same time, a very relaxing experience. The experienced staff tailors treatments to maximize the results. Over the years, I’ve come to look forward to each visit. However this year, with COVID variants on the rise, I was surprised that the staff wasn’t wearing masks since contact is so intimate and the setting for treatment is indoors. To their credit, when I requested it, my therapist wore a mask and I wore one myself.

Beware, your experience will be therapist dependent. I was so looking forward to my “stress busting” massage but I left feeling battered and annoyed rather than refreshed and relaxed. I was subjected to at least 30 minutes of trigger point pressure in spite of my (should have been obvious) physical discomfort, and twice voiced displeasure. The oil smelled like Crisco, except for what was used on my neck and scalp, which was an unpleasant combination of wintergreen and camphor. I was never asked about my preferences for pressure and scent, and she never asked for feedback during the visit. I found myself relieved when it was over, then had the disheartening feeling of paying almost $250 for experience 🥵😰

My husband and I both had a couples massage. His therapist had garlic breath, was away from his body for over 30 seconds at a time, my therapist was fair. I asked for a deep massage and felt like I was getting a light touch even asking her to go deeper.

The staff Was very nice and friendly. The little house was quaint and clean. But the price of the massage that we requested was on the high pricey end and not what we expected at all. We would not recommend Nirvana again.

Worst place ever. Planned my honeymoon/wedding around the appointment for a couples massage. I made the appointment on 3/18 for 6/5. We arrived on time and the front desk said they didn’t have us scheduled for a couples massage. They could separate massages. I have emails and appointment confirmations that a couples massage was booked. They didn’t even try to make anything right. They didn’t even want to see the written proof. All they said for empty sorrys. Thank you for ruining my wedding weekend. I’m not from Santa Fe and this was our gift to each other. I wish I could 0 stars. Waited almost 3 months for this. I hope they don’t charge us. All they could have done was offered a discount or Free massage and we could have reschedule and made another trip to Santa Fe. I shouldn’t have to tell the owner how to run her business but it’s very unprofessional. So thank you again for ruining my wedding weekend.

This was just what I needed! I am a Covid survivor & am prone to relapses. I had such an attack while traveling to Santa Fe on vacation. My body was in pain & the headache was brutal. Asta Rackauskaite really listened to me & I so appreciated that. First, she made sure I could tolerate the smell of the oil she was going to use. She inquired about the desired pressure. I am someone where a little goes a long way for a massage. She applied just the right amount of touch to comfort & relax without hurting. I did the 90-minute stress buster & left there feeling completely revived! I was able to go on and enjoy my vacation. What a wonderful place and a fabulous massage therapist!

Chose this place based on availability and their attention to sanitizing detail during Covid. But honestly, they should be doing all of these things anyway. They did not disappoint. Showers are required before. Masks are worn at all times. My Massuse wore gloves. Asta was my massuse. She was very nice, did a deep tissue and got out all the kinks from my hiking. They are part of a Bed an Breakfast. So there are some people eating in the court yard. One note, when I got out of the shower, I noticed that the window facing the court yard was propped wide open. So, if anyone was sitting out there, they got a free show with their drinks:-0

Loved the experience. I got the CBD oil treatment for $25 additional. Didnt notice a difference.

I am so pleased to read that you loved your experience at Absolute Nirvana. While we always took sanitation and hygiene very seriously, you are right: we have raised it to a new level. The last thing we want is for any guests, therapists or staff to fall ill! We were serving breakfast at our B&B, The Madeleine Inn, but have now re-opened our brother inn, Hacienda Nicholas. Breakfast and the Happy Hour are once again being served there, so no one is dining at The Madeleine any longer. Please know that we did some experimenting with what could be seen from the patio, and it was impossible to see into the spa room with the sheers on during daylight hours. Only at night, with lights on, could one begin to see shapes moving. I am confident no one got any free shows! ;) Thank you so very much for your glowing review. We hope to see you again in the future. All the best, Carolyn

I had a spring reveal peel facial from Deda. The facial massage was out of this world! I could literally feel the tension melting out of my face and floating away. The products left my skin silky and glowing! Can't wait to come back again.

I can’t say enough nice things about this hidden gem. The space was so inviting, and the services were very accommodating and relaxing. So much more personal and quant than some of the other spas I have been to in Santa Fe. I loved how the bath was inside the room and I was able to take a shower after the service. My massage therapist Karen was amazing and Reagan at the front check in is a complete angel! Thank you all so much.
