Favorite Spa in Austin. I've been to Viva on a number of occasions - mostly for massages - and have always been pleased with the level of service and attention I've received. I got a Swedish massage this Saturday and I had a great experience. My massage therapist was really helpful and even took the time to show me some stretches I could do between treatments to help with some tension in my shoulders and neck. I love sitting in their lounge area and relaxing with a cup of tea. The location on South Lamar has a sauna which I want to try next time because I've heard it warms your muscles and helps you relax more for your massage. Overall, this is a beautiful spa and the rates are very for fair for the service you receive. You will not be disappointed!
Elisha is a genius!. Okay, ladies. Here’s the scoop. I highly recommend Elisha at Viva. I have very sensitive skin and was never much of a “facial person” until Elisha worked her magic on me. Now, if I’m thinking about a spa service, that’s what I want—a facial by Elisha. She has a really amazing command of massage and pressure points on the face, combined with her wonderful-smelling lotions and potions and sweet, calm energy—I feel glowy for days after. She takes a beauty treatment and makes it a really beautiful experience. Seriously. Elisha. Go see her.
Viva is awesome!. This is an amazing spa!!I came to austin for a vacation and love this place. I go to the lamar location. It's a cute urban and eclectic retreat. The customer service is awesome and they make you feel at home. The packages are affordable and you get your money's worth.
Best Spa in Austin. I love VIVA! The massage therapists are the best around!!! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
AMAZING EXPERIENCE. I love going to VIVA. The staff, atmosphere and service is always above and beyond! There are a lot of spas in town, but I don't feel like they all cater to my needs as well as VIVA does. I think they do a great job -- they deserve much praise for that. I go to Michell for massage and Heather for facials. I've tried other therapists in the past and they were all really good as well... BTW The seasonal packages they offer are the way to go!!! Try it and see for yourself!
Thank you for the review. We really appreciate the feedback and hope we can continue to pamper you in the future!
Most Relaxed I've Been in Years!!. These folks have their finger on the proverbial pulsebeat. Perfect atmosphere, friendly service and the MASSAGE! Kelly is unequivocally the best massage therapist I've ever encountered. I'll be back in successive weekends for sure!
Thank you for the review and we are so glad you enjoyed your massage! Kelly is a fantastic therapist with many years of experience helping clients feel great! We are truly honored to pamper you!
austin's worst day spa.. I have had massage all over the world and by far the least impressive was Viva Day Spa. They charge way more than they are worth. I received a massage by a very amature therapist that informed me she had only recently finished school. The prices do not reflect the low level of experience and service I received. I think Viva is more interested in being trendy than offering good quality massage. Maybe it was my bad luck that day but I will not go back at $95. It's not worth it!
I am puzzled by this review because we do not have even one massage therapist that has less than 2 years of experience after they have graduated from school. One of our requirements is that all staff member must have at least one year experience in a spa setting at the time that they are hired. We also have each and every client fill out a comment card and I review each of them myself. I have not received anything less than very good comment cards. We are dedicated to giving only top notch service. If you have received anything less than this, we would love to speak with you and see how we can make it right.
Great atmosphere and service. I have been to Viva Day Spa twice now and just love, love, love the service, treatments, the house (very homey!), and pricing of the packages. Everyone is super nice and the treatments are just wonderful and thoroughly done. I have had a massage, body wrap, facial, and mani/pedi done and felt completely renewed and rejuvenated after my treatments. I have had one of the best massages I've ever had from here. It was also the first time I had extractions done and the aesthetician made me feel very comfortable. Their scheduling is also very flexible. It really is an unpretentious and laidback place, I felt instantly comfortable the moment I stepped inside. The aestheticians and massage therapists are very warm, sensitive to your needs, and professional. Price-wise, I would take advantage of their packages. I have looked around and Viva definitely has the best offerings for the price!
Great Experience!. I love going to Viva! I always have an amazing experience from the min I walk in the door. Parking is easy and there is no hassle getting in and out of the location. I see Heather there as my esthetician and I just adore her! She makes me feel comfortable and at ease. It's always a great experience going to Viva!
Great services Austin style!. I am now a fan of Viva! I went to the downtown location over the weekend to redeem a gift certificate for a facial and was really impressed with the whole experience! My husband really got it right with this gift certificate! The place was really beautiful and the employees were really nice and experienced. I learned a lot about my skin and left looking 5 years younger. NO JOKE! It's been several days and people are STILL asking me what I did. I am scheduled to go back in for a spa package with my husband (my Christmas surprise to him)....If it is anything like the facial I will be a regular. Give them a try!
