My experience at the spa was absolutely spectacular. My masseuse was named Hope and she gave me the best massage of my life and my wife had Dennis and she also thought this was the best massage of her life and she has probably had 1 billion massages.

Went for a pedicure in February when we were visiting there. The therapist was fantastic and was very accommodating with the oils she used. The treatment was great, made my feet feel better. We had been travelling for a month and my feet needed some TLC. I'd like to thank Sadhana for the wonderful appointment.

My husband and I opted for a couples retreat massage. From the original reception from Hope and Nikcola, we had entered an oasis of professional tranquillity. The whole experience was relaxing and totally professional.

Booked in for a massage and facial. Hubby and son also booked a massage. Able to get appointments all together and hubby and I were in the same room. Beautiful therapists who were very accommodating and had amazing hands!!! The facilities were beautiful and the complimentary glacier pool passes next door were a nice touch. Totally awesome way to spend... More

Reena was my masseuse at Franz Joseph spa and she was amazing! She amended her pressure to suit and was very professional. Great room at appropriate temperature, good oils. Well worth the cost.

I had a relaxation massage with my teenage daughter. We both enjoyed it very much. The room was terrific. The oils used smelled great and the masseuses were professional. A fantastic experience.

I need to make a confession here cos I seriously think I am a convert now. I always request for female therapist every time when I have spa treatments due to me being shy and all... But to tell you the truth, after my amazing treatment at Hahana Spa, I confessed I actually didn't mind having male therapist at all.... More
