Let me begin by saying that I booked my wife in here for our Anniversary so she could be pampered. I have never seen her come out of a massage looking so relaxed and what made it even better is she said this was the best massage she had ever received...and she uses a chiropractor for her regular massages.

What made this experience especially unique was the willingness of the owner, Mary. We tried stopping by on the Sunday, which was actually our anniversary, and called the number on the door to see if there was an appointment available for that day. Unfortunately, we had left it a bit late in the day to get someone but to Mary's credit she tried and didn't just say no. Fortunately they had plenty the next day and we were able to get in.

After my wife had finished her massage, Mary actually came out to introduce herself to me and was very friendly. Being that we don't got to Topsail a lot, we asked if she had any suggestions as to where we could go out to eat that night. She had lots of suggestions, we ended up taking her advice and ended up having one of the best meals we had every had while being out of town.

All in all, with the best message my wife had ever been given plus the friendliness of the owner there is no doubt that we will be going back there. We may just start vacationing on Topsail just so my wife can go here!!!

Visiting the area, got a pedicure here and they charged me $50 for the services listed in the $35 pedicure. The nail person never said anything. Very gossipy staff, doesn't have a atmosphere of professionalism or concern for pampering the client. I have to go back next month there and I will not be visiting this location.

Every summer we spend a week on Topsail Island, and every summer I spend an hour getting a massage at Inis Spa, they recently moved to larger, more chic, surroundings, right across from their old establishment. The new space is beautiful, hardwood floors, private rooms, and the service is still excellent.

I made my second visit to Inis Spa in August 2011. Had the "Spirit of the Island" special which is a 90 minute treatment including facial, neck/shoulder massage, and foot reflexology.
All I can say is: IT WAS PERFECT!
My operator (Connie) did a wonderful and very thorough job...right down to trimming my nosehairs during the facial. I was so relaxed by the end that it seemed several hours had passed rather than just 90 minutes. If I had to choose only one treatment from the menu, I wouldn't hesitate to pick this one again...very complete and touches almost all of your body.
Inis' new location is much larger and offers a full-service salon, yoga studio, and many massage/body treatment rooms. The lobby, hallways and yoga room are decorated in bright, beachy colors. My treatment room was probably painted equally brightly but the lights had been dimmed before my entry to just the right level...soothing, yet not so dark that I felt lost.
One of the best things about this spa is that it's totally service-focused. Everyone is freindly and professional. No one pushes products. You leave knowing that they'd love to have you back.
Like I said before: it's "An Island Gem"
....and a great place to unwind and relax for both locals and visitors.
