I booked the 90 minute relaxation massage for $165 and was very disappointed. The waiting area is beautifully presented and has a relaxing waterfall. I was offered a glass of water on arrival. The setting was beautiful and the two staff that I encountered were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the massage didn't live up to expectations for the amount that... More

Was very disappointed with the "deep tissue massage" I had to ask twice for harder pressure I was not sure if she was just getting started or not, until she moved to the next area, I gave up asking as I felt rude, my partners pressure was ok but he was not happy either... since there was such good reviews...

I booked in for a facial and what I received was so much more! I was greeted by the delightful Myrna and escorted to a private room - tastefully decorated and soothing. The treatment itself began - as with most spa's I expected only my 'face' and perhaps my neck to receive the treatment - but no - I had... More

My husband gave me a gift for a Vichy Shower Massage and it was just beautiful! I felt totally pampered and spoilt. The treatment and level of service was comparable to five star hotels in Asia where I have had many treatments and I would definitely recommend a visit - ask for Myrna!

I talked up this place to my partner and stated that it had won many awards so it was sure to be amazing. We got the romantic couples massage. The place is tiny with only three rooms. We entered the room at 520 for our 60 minute massage and finished at 610.. my massage therapist did not seem to know... More

We booked for a group of 5 women wanting various treatments, and Belinda booked the facilities for us. There were only 2 therapists, so 2 of us received treatments at a time. These varied from massages to facials and manicures. The rest of us just sat around chatting or reading the magazines provided. It's not a big place. A reception... More

My husband and I booked 90 minute hot stone massages for the day after doing the cross island hike, and it was AMAZING! Its exactly what we needed to sooth our aching muscles. Think it was the best hot stone massages we've had! Both massage therapists were excellent. Loved the sound of the waterfall in the background.

As a birthday treat my husband booked me in for a special package of a Vichy Shower and scrub and hot stone massage. It was a truly glorious way to spend my birthday finished off with a glass of bubbles. Honestly one of the best spa treatments I have experienced.
