Get the stress buster massage - you wont regret it! The room was peaceful. Fresh air, lovely music, and great calming ambiance. The massage was thorough and added elements of stretching and static holds. It was exactly what a stressed out traveler needs! Lauren was fabulous.

I loved my spring renewal spa treatment - it was wonderful! The massage was one of the best I have ever had. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours!

I did not expect a facial to be such a relaxing experience for the whole person: A treat from the moment I stepped into the Spa: the kind reception by the hostess, the Spa rooms, beautifully furnished with balinese style furnishings already put you in a quiet space of mind. The therapist for my hydrating facial was a true healer,... More

We loved this day spa. Set in a beautiful old house with a beautiful garden. The women running the place and who did our massages were wonderful. My husband fell asleep immediately after in their lobby. That is how good the massage was! I got to relax in the victorian house and catch up on my reading.

Had the best massage with Karin at this aptly named spa. Have back probs ( like so many!) and she really worked every muscle firmly and carefully before moving onto the rest of the body. Floated out feeling limber and at peace. Noelle at the reception in this welcoming home-like spa was professional and friendly from making the appointment through... More

My husband and I both booked the Ultimate Stressbuster massage and were not disappointed! Yes, it is a bit pricey but so worth it! We had 90 minutes of pure bliss and relaxation. It was a 10 minute walk from our hotel located on the Plaza, and the spa room was cozy, warm and inviting. We have done 10,000 Waves... More

A 90-minute stress buster massage was a very relaxing and therapeutic experience in a very clean, quiet and peaceful setting. Highly recommend Absolute Nirvana Spa. Very professional.

The Stressbuster is probably my favorite treatment - hot herbal oils, hot towels, and special emphasis on neck and shoulders, make it the idea treatment to combat accumulated stress. I am so pleased you enjoyed your time at Absolute Nirvana. More

Love, love, love this place. The spa is small and private - I love the individual attention. The facials and treatments are fantastic, the staff is professional and very competent. Relaxing in the granite tub while drinking tea and eating chocolate is the best!

Had hour and a half massage that was fantastic. Therapist friendly but did not try to talk to me throughout massage!

So glad you enjoyed your massage, and our policy of not chatting to clients during treatments (unless, of course, they want to talk). We hope to see you again one day. More
