Perfection. absolutely worth every penny left me so relaxed it took me a while to get up.. Very proffesional
Amazing!!! Try the Peppermint Scalp Massage!!. My Husband and I came for a vacation after his Deployment and we had the whole thing done. My favorite was the Peppermint Scalp Massage because for 5 days after even after washing I had the best Hair days I could have ever had. My hair restored and so soft and shiny! The honey scrub and massage was amazing and also very peaceful! Wow!! Worth every penny!!!!!!
My favorite Massage Getaway.
I've been everywhere.. high end, back street great price, healers, Las Vegas ambiance, you name it- I am a massage snob. This place is an off the beaten path jewel.
I've learned, you can get steam baths, and saunas and pay through the nose.. but seriously, when it comes to body work-- you have to "feel" it. And, this feeling is a vibe you get right away.
When we walked down to the spa area, we weren't sure because it is like a little massage office-it's boutique and cute- but as soon as the therapists came to greet me, they had the vibe you hope for. This is a family run business.. the two ladies were auntie and niece and they were powerhouses. Ask for Jacquelyn and Allie when you go. I asked them what their style was so I could go find it on the mainland- but they said, "oh... our styles are a combination of techniques from around the world- but truly our style is what we call INTUITIVE- we FEEL you, your body, and how to free the energy blocks so your body can begin to let go and heal" Absolutely- after having an intuitive massage, I would look for no other. Yes, you can try their packages which seem like a good deal- The bartender and shop owners in town seem to agree that they are the best when we asked around town for a good massage. We got referred to the Sea of Romance which is a nice value especially with the intuitive healing. I will return to the Catalina Canyon Resort and Spa just to pay a visit to The Spa at Catalina.
(If real essential oils are important to you, being away from downtown noise, huge treatment rooms-- something down to earth, real, and healing- this is the place I for you- Definitely I can not say enough about this place---when you find the real deal, it's hard not to gush)
My best experience on the island (drum roll please) was my massage... I had to practically drag my boyfriend to get a massage, it was his first ever and he didn't know how great it would be! Once we got to the spa we both felt relaxed.. It is tucked at the back of the Catalina Canyon hotel away from all the downtown noise, our hotel room downtown had the constant drone of golf carts going by. In fact, we will probably stay at this hotel next time.
Going to the spa was lovely, the girl who checked us in was very nice and she quickly led us to our spa room... it was magical! It smelled like orange essential oils and the room had a warm glow to it. I loved that the treatment room was spacious I felt so comfortable. My boyfriend and I got the Couple's delight and I couldn't believe what a great service we picked! The service included a full body massage, a peppermint scalp massage, we opted for the scrub at the end, though there is a mini facial choice as well. We felt rejuvenated after. There was no skimping on the massage part, I felt like all my sore spots got attention. My bf now regrets not getting massages earlier and now gets them once a week but he says he never found a massage like at The Spa at Catalina.
DONT BOTHER. We tried for nearly 6 days to get a hold of someone at that spa so we could set up a mother/daughter spa day for my moms 65th birthday, but not a soul ever called back. Finally someone called, left a message on my phone saying she had been calling for three days trying to get a hold of me. She must have thought I was an idiot, because my cell phone IDs the person calling, and she never called until she called after we returned to the main land. We were actually relieved she didnt call, if the filthy condition of hotel is any indication of the spa, we were lucky to not have to pay to be disappointed. We went somewhere else and spent about $500 at the other spa. Not sure how they stay in business if they dont call clients back who plan on spending that much money. I cannot recommend this place to anyone.
Add a facial or massage to your seaside holiday at one of the island's only day spas..
Located in the garden courtyard of the Best Western Catalina Canyon Resort and Spa, the spa is surrounded by tropical palm trees and the soothing sounds of nature. Walk past the heated pool and hot tub to the basic treatment rooms, obviously once hotel rooms. Organic body wraps include the toxin-sapping Island Mud Magic with the spa's famous peppermint scalp massage, and don't miss the facials, performed on a heated treatment table.
