Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a very nice spa custom facial before a wedding, for 55 minutes I was looked after and I felt so relaxed. The therapist will customize the treatment on your needs and I had extractions, exfoliation, masques and a massage. I cannot stop to recommend them and I already booked another treatment in September!

Beautiful day Spa. It was my first visit today, entering the premises I thought it was going to be quite small, but it was spacious with beautiful decor. The staff could not be friendlier or more accommodating, everyone we interacted was so lovely and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. All covid measures were in place and the place was spotlessly clean, no issues social distancing and everyone wearing masks which was reassuring. I had a full body Swedish massage with Isabela and it was incredible. I had been quite sore and tense going on, but practically floated out, I felt so relaxed after the treatment.
I then had a facial and manicure with Stefania. She was lovely, so friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the products on sale, giving great advice. I also really enjoyed both treatments with her, my skin feels amazing and I'm delighted with how my previously unkempt nails turned out. I'll definitely return again soon.
It is in a great location, directly beside the Gaiety theatre and opposite St Stephens Green shopping centre. Tons of parking nearby, great dining options nearby and needless to say, plenty of shopping options. Perfect venue for a day out.

Quite possibly the best massage I've ever had. Tanisha was a delight, outstanding technique, I had the Voya maternity massage and it was incredible. Warm, comfortable surroundings and even warmer staff. Ill be back next chance I get.

Went for a mummy to be package and it really was terrible the massage was like Ross from friends with the old guy no effort put in to it all that happened is I got a lot of oil rubbed on my body. Also they don’t even have a pregnancy massage table which I think you shouldn’t be advertising mummy to be massages if you don’t have the correct equipment. Had to lie on my side and got a sore arm and cramped leg. Not a pleasant experience. The bump wrap was oil rubbed on me then a towel put on it. Hardly a wrap. The facial was fine and she scratched my head for ages dunno what that was about. I’m so disappointed wasted my x mas money on this. I wanted somewhere local but such a waste of money wish I had waited until after x mas and hopefully a loosening of restrictions. Please mummy’s do not waste your money! I left more stressed than I arrived.

I went to the buff day spa on 10th aug for a Swedish body massage and dermologica facial. Both very pleasant.. no complaints. I also had a pedicure and manicure and was extremely disappointed in these. More so the manicure. They cost €35 and I have to say the manicure itself was very very basic.... my hands were dipped in warm water before my cuticles were done. And at that they were not done properly. Moving on to the shellac at an extra €15. First go my cuticles were flooded and I had to tell the spa therapist (she was lovely I might add but clearly very inexperienced) this had to be removed. I chose a different colour as maybe the colour was off!? But the second attempt of Shellac was almost worse. It’s starts way to far up my nails, my cuticles are half done, my nails are all different shape. It was genuinely the worst manicure and shellac I have ever got done. This was 2 days ago and one has chipped already. Would not recommend this service and would not return as it is over priced to begin with but the actual results are terrible. Pic below of the day they were done. You can see this is a very bad job.
