“An awful experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2008

The problem may be that they have moved the spa from the Black Forest into town. I had read the previous reviews and was expecting something nice. I have no complaints about the staff, they were great. But the facility was incredibly low rent. I had read the instructions on the web and brought my own bottle of water. I decided to skip using the spa while I was there, since the website said I would have to bring my own towel. I needed to wait for quite a while for my appointment, (I was with a friend and we were having the same treatment) so I had brought a book, but the only place they had for me to sit and wait was a backless bench in a hallway. I had signed up for the Ultimate Body Renewal ($135). This meant that they covered my body in mud of some kind, then put me under a coffin-like fabric tent and filled it with steam. The tent kept falling down on my face. It was awful. I'm not claustrophobic, but even I had to cry "uncle" after a while and ask the tech to move the tent so that my head was out. That meant that the edge of the tent was resting across my throat...very uncomfortable. The crowning moment was when the treatment was over. The tech wiped off as much mud as she could and then told me I needed to go straight home and take a shower, because they had no shower facilities!! By the time I got home, the remaining mud had dried to the consistency of concrete. It took a stiff brush over my whole body to get it off. It was a thoroughly miserable experience.

“Russian Day Spa massage at Chapel Hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2004

The Russian Day Spa (Yevgeniya's Day Spa counterpart) Massage for two was incredible! Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and we found this location in the mall (the other location sounds even nicer, wish we had time to visit there!) and needed some quick stress relief. My wife and I had the couples massage, side by side, and it was just what the doctor ordered. They worked out the knots in my back from driving 20 hours and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the hot stones massage. She also said the facial and pedicure were to die for, but the massage was enough for me. Can't wait to visit again when we return. Dennis & Carol

“Day Spa Escape at Yevgeniya's Day Spa (RussianDaySpa.com)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2004

Being a "Spa-goer" for a while now, it's nice to find a true destination spa in a day spa. Typically, most salons are saying they're day spas now, but all you find are hectic hairdressers and hardly any ambiance at all. This is not the case here! Yevgeniya's Day Spa in the Black Forest (Colorado Springs) is truly a remarkable place! Their sister spa (RussianDaySpa.com) in the mall is convenient and nice, but is nothing compared to this! Every room is decorated in a different theme and the staff lavishes you with attention. There's the Russian room, European Room, Egyptian room, there's even a hot tub, sauna and steam shower in the "Colorado lounge." The whole place is luxurious and homey at the same time, not pretentous at all. The facial was the most indulgent thing I've ever had, and the "Couples massage lesson" was too enjoyable. A MUST SEE if you make it to the area. Kudo's to them! :) -Chris
