every time i go to this spa , something is not working. it is not like it used to be. i think it was a change of management or owner. but whatever it is, i think the place is not going to last long. also the spa is much dirtier than ever.don't waist your money and time there.
Taking Bad business practices to just plain stupid, Local Russian Bath House "Nirvana Spa" Chasing away loyal local clients in the down season...
The price of the average Gym/Spa membership monthly in Miami Beach is 50.00, LESS then it would cost to visit Nirvana Spa two times in a month, at $30 a visit. Yet some long time spa clients visit Nirvana once a week or more!
Leading to a "off the books' hierarchy of guests whom receive various discounted rates ranging from $10 to $20 a visit. This Discount has always extended to guest brought in by a Loyal Client, especially if Client is paying for the guests. This has encouraged Loyal "Discounted Clients" to invite guest and bring new clients to Nirvana Spa. This also is a win/won for Nirvana because by paying for additional guest, the discounted member is still spending an average of $30 per visit!
As of recent; however, Nirvana spa has began charging there loyal clients Full Price for any guest brought for a visit, and not telling them until leaving the spa and it is time to pay!!
I complained about this and was told, by an employee "Well, times are tough around here..."
Given the current financial climate, and the fact that it is "Slow season" in Miami Beach, dosn't it make more sense to offer Loyal clients further seasonal discounts, and incentives to bring new clients to a Business? In a time where People are spending less, and Gyms and Spas are lowering their prices accordingly, and offering NEW GUEST free Weeks, or in some cases FREE MONTHS, Is it wise to chase loyal local clients away? At one time when "The Castle" was closed, and before the Standard spa, and SPA at Canyon Ranch, residents of Miami Beach had no choice but pay the High Rates of Nirvana Spa; however, now with several other Bath Houses on Miami Beach, and with High End Gyms equipped with Steam and Sauna.... Nirvana Spa starts too look a little "less kept" and "Not-so-Clean" and more DIRTY and UN-Friendly to Locals.
I feel that Nirvana Spa has the perfect combination of hydrotherapy and body treatments. The atmosphere is inviting and casual and soothing. There is a wonderful oversized jacuzzi with very powerful jets which I loved! Also the different types of steam rooms are very nice, especially the Russian Sauna with authentic russian design with furnace and everything!!! Aromatherapy can be combined in most of the steam rooms, which is great for the respiratory system.
Overall my experience at the spa was wonderful. I've had several treatments, including the hot stone massage which was very relaxing and nourishing. their deep tissue therapists are very well trained and can heal almost any tension. The staff at the spa is highly professional and very friendly and welcoming.
I wish I could spend more days at the spa, so far I'm trying to make it there a few times a month. It is definately a great place to go if you have any kind of stress or tension, and it's also fun to go with friends. There is free parking and the beach behind the hotel is gorgeous. Also they have a great Tea Bar near the jacuzzi which is perfection!!
I can't wait to go again!
I loved nirvana spa. I had the best time ever. my buddy and i had heard about their great therapysts, and I could'nt be happier... I got a great deep tissue massage and in the end she gave me a great happy ending! wow! what a great deal! my buddy also got the same treatment. and we go there all the time and we reffer it to all our friends! so if you wanna skip all the bull. and just get down to the nitty griddy! go to nirvana spa... I sure your gonna love nirvana spa!
I gotta say this is the smelliest spa I have ever been to. But I have to mention that the girl at the front desk was sooo nice and very professional. she greeted me the second I came in, and handed me a towl and a key for the locker. I was very taken by her as well. she had the best eyes and very drak black hair, I think her name was rumi or romi... not sure , but she was great! thanks
The day I visited I was not welcomed by anyone. All staff walked by me without a hello or greeting of any kind, including the girl who gave me a massage! A rude cleaning woman in the locker room made some very unkind comments in Spanish thinking that I didn't understand the language. I was not given a tour of the facilities or even offered one. From the mats on the floor to the decorations in the massage rooms everything had a very dingy old appearance.
I am very disappointed. I do not consider this establishment to be a spa.
Regarding the one review: I'm sorry they had a bad experience. I've never experienced the spa treatments. However, last August 17, 2005 while visiting Miami Beach, I called Nirvana and asked if I could take a tour. On that Wednesday night right before their 10:00 pm. closing. the receptionist/manager was very courteous and always had a smile. She gave me and two women a tour of the facilities. From what I saw, I predict my ratings would be:
5 stars for treatments
4 stars for courtesy
2.5 stars for cleanliness. (This is a busy popular spa in the basement of a hotel that was built at the end of World War II. Nirvana is in the basement so, at first, the place looks dingy. And remember, the Miami Beach climate is hot, humid and corrosive. Properties by the sea age tough. One thing I did notice, was the men's locker room was on the warm and humid side. Personally, I like a more air conditioned locker room for getting dressed after working out, enjoying the spa and showering. There was a short stocky cleaning lady that looked like a pug (dog) and spoke rapid fire Spanish. I did not pay much attention to what she said or didn't say.
