Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Went here for a exfoliation scrub massage, can't remember the name of it, but I didn't enjoy it. The massage therapist was lovely but the pressure that was applied was to tough. I asked her to apply a medium pressure but unfortunately it was still too tough. The place itself is easy to find. I love massages in general but unfortunately on this occasion I won't return here again

Wasn't really relaxing as it was cold the whole time. The masseuse's hands were cold even though she was rubbing me rigorously the whole time. The pressure also wasn't very high. We asked for more of a deep tissue massage, but it was pretty light still. As soon as it was over my muscles immediately tensed back up to try to keep warm. So kind of a waste of money : Went to warm up in the sauna, but then taking a shower made me cold again because the water was barely above warm and as soon as you turn it off you're cold again because the air is freezing.

We came right to the spa after long overnight flights and were grateful for the Tranquility Room where we got to relax before our services. Our treatments were wonderful and every single staff member was so warm and welcoming. We loved it!

I booked a Spa Treat for me and my sister. The experience was fantastic from start to finish. Hana looked after us really kindly and we had plenty of time in the relaxation rooms which were quiet and tranquil. The mini massage and facial were just what we wanted and were totally relaxing. We were not rushed or overly fussed around. I will definitely return.

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.
