I don't write bad reviews very often, but I need to do so in this case. The place smelled more like an Indian restaurant than a spa. The tea that they offered was scalding hot. My wife and I both got massages, and we both hated them. It seemed like both people weren't really trained in how to give massages.... More

The typical smell (of ayurvedic oils and ayurveda center)... More

Professional and skilled therapists will make you feel absolutely amazing. After massage you will have a rest in a quite dark room with cup of tea, nice music and candles.

After reading reviews on trip advisor my husband and I found this little gem down a little alley and we booked for the Sunday. We were not disappointed it may not be your top hotel spa but the service and treatments were just as good for a fraction of the cost. After a massage and facial we were shown into... More

I can't stress enough how fantastic this place is. The people are polite, professional and welcoming. The prices are excellent value for money. I had a wide variety of treatments during my stay in Bratislava and can thoroughly recommend everything on the menu. The two hands massage is amazing as is the oil poured onto your forehead. Darsana has wonderful... More

Went here as it was the highest rated massage place in Bratislava. We turned up without a reservation and they were nice enough to offer us a time slot for an hour later which was great.
