BEST FULL-SERVICE SALON/SPA

The Sanctuary Salonspa

The Sanctuary Salonspa combines beauty and relaxation in perfect harmony. In addition to cutting and coloring your locks, the staff offers a wide range of massage services including hot stone massage, pregnancy massage, and Lomi Lomi, plus facials, waxing, body treatments, and more. The friendly and talented staff greets patrons at the door and immediately begins the pampering process. In their capable hands (figuratively and literally), Sanctuary's customers receive one-on-one attention in the warmly lighted space. The spa's stress-free environment serves as a brief but rewarding getaway after a long day or week of work. But Sanctuary's true mark of excellence is how the staff treats the boyfriends, husbands, and friends who are just there for company. At Sanctuary they're not relegated to sitting in a cramped waiting room while their partners are being pampered. Non-customers can relax by the cozy fireplace, drink fresh coffee or tea, and gaze at a variety of birds munching on feeders in the backyard. When the massages and facials are over, everybody, even those who didn't partake in the services, goes home relaxed.
