A few days before we were to arrive, a staff member called to see if we had any questions – we thought that was a really nice touch. The villa was clean and spacious. The gym seemed nice but, I mean, I was on vacation so I can only go on appearances. The bikes were a little run down, but... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed our facility. Just to explain why our Koru Kampus is on 2 sides of the street, is that we opened our Spa and gym in 2005 on the sound-side, and at the time that was all it was. As the years continued we had the opportunity to develop... More

I ain't saying you need to get Emili as your therapist, because my brother had a corresponding massage at the same time I did, and had an identically magnificent experience. But if you lean toward Swedish for your deep tissue issues, please consider Emili and Spa Koru. I get 2 or more treatments a month for a number of longstanding... More

Vacationing with the family in the OBX and knew I would NEED some quiet and relaxing time by the end of the week. I was able to get an appointment on the same day-luckily! Facility was immaculate and calming....massage was the BEST I've ever had. I was even thinking about trying to get another appointment for the next day :)... More

Had such a great massage here. We were staying in nags head and it was totally worth the drive. Emily was great. She found my sore spots a focused in those areas. It was great!

I've been going to Spa Koru in Avon since we began going to Avon about 10 years ago. it's a great place to take a yoga class or exercise class. A favorite is yoga by the beach taught by one of owners, Tammy. This is a wonderful way to start the morning and is appropriate for all levels I also... More

Cute salon! Jessie did a lovely job and gave me a funky and patriotic pedicure. Would recommend to others in the area. Book early as only 2 pedicure chairs.

We don't skip our weight training just because we're on vacation and spa Koru is the place to go when you're on the island (unless of course you're in Nags Head lol)....but if you're Buxton, Avon or Waves this is your spot! In addition to enough strength equipment to get in your needs they have cardio, classes, massage and little... More

Well worth the time and money. Beautiful place and great staff. Amenities are well worth the visit. Lots to do on their campus and a short walk to the Pier.

I was in Rodanthe over spring break. Had a massage haircut one day then returned for a facial. Give yourself time. Super nice steam room so if you are going for spa treatments ( facial wraps massages) you will have a robe and slippers and can use the facility that has showers and steam room with private lounge and lockers....

Had a few visits during off-season week stay. A very nice amenity, especially for my non-fishing better half. Took advantage of Yoga classes and exercise equipment. Also, very nice shower and steam room. Staff very friendly, nice atmosphere. Off season services limited. If you like group exercise snd yoga, check it out.
