i get massages on a regular basis and have been to high end spas, including the red door spa, healthworks in boston, the ritz and four seasons and spas in switzerland. this is an excellent spa. the massages are top notch - joshua is amazing, therapeutic, deep tissue. the place is immaculate everywhere. the sheets and pillows are clean, thick and comfy. the bathrooms and changing rooms are spotless - thank you bonnie! the relaxation room is inviting. the workout room has plenty and a variety of equipment, bright and clean. chloe is professional and very comforting on doing all waxing. even the products they offer are organic and effective. best lotion ever, especially after the pool or beach. the staff is always helpful and kind, even call to remind you of service next day. my daughters also love the spa.

I participated in one of the yoga on the beach during my girls' vacation to the OBX. It was great hearing the waves while doing yoga, so relaxing, and nice to not feel like a super slug on vacation.

I visit Hatteras about 2 weekends a month during the season and use the Spa and Salon often. It could be a world class experience for everyone if attention to details were made and a management style that raised the professionalism of the staff. Unfortunately I often overhear conversations among the staff reminiscent of my sorority days or worse, junior high mean girls. Even heard a young beautician bemoaning how trying it was for her to see all "those fat tourists" on her beach". This was in front of a roomful of tourists, not all of them Size 0's.... I was appalled.

One of the treasures at the Spa Salon those is an incredibly talented stylist new to there this Summer. Her level of talent and experience raises her skills far above any one else there. I no longer make an appointment unless Tara is available. Sure hope she stays.

If owners would invest in some minor repairs, replacement of outdated equipment, and pay attention to the professionalism of staff, the reputation (especially with locals) would be greatly improved.

My family was in Avon the week of August 12-18, 2012. I made an appointment for a hot stone massage while we were there as my getaway from the kids (one that belonged to me and four others) and adults. The spa is clean and tranquil and my massage was great. I definitely recommend visiting spa koru if you are in avon. you will not be disappointed.
