I️ needed a massage while on a business trip. It was so easy to make a reservation online and even for the same evening. Super clean, quaint and fun. The massage was amazing and much more reasonable than the hotel spas.

My boyfriend and I booked an impromptu couples massage without having read any reviews of Alchemie. We were pleasantly surprised that the offered organic products and were unpretentious while still being luxurious. We can't wait to book a full spa retreat next time!

Techs are very friendly and skilled, spa seemed very clean. Good location for visiting Santa Monica Pier. Should have asked for harder pressure (which is my own fault) and sounded like someone outside my room was washing dishes midway through my massage. Otherwise enjoyable.

Wife had a wonderful relaxing and much needed massage while on vacation. The staff was friendly and the surroundings very nice. She would go back if we where in the area.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
