“Save your money... just not a good exoeri”
Review of Aqua Spa

Aqua Spa
Ranked #1 of 3 Spas & Wellness in Duck
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 September 2017 via mobile

I came here in September with a friend for a relaxing spa experience. Unfortunately that is not what happened. Our massages were very expensive for what we actually received . The room I was in for my service was so bright with the sun shining through the semi closed blinds and It located right outside of the restaurant. Not only was It bright but so distracting in relaxing to have people talking and laughing right outside the room where you should be relaxing getting a massage. The masseuse that I had had her cell phone in the room while I was getting a massage and I heard the phone vibrate multiple times. Extremely rude and disrespectful to a paying client. The massage was fine, just nothing special. The atmosphere really ruined it for me.The spa does not have any type of steam room or sauna and the amenities are very small. There are no refreshments except for maybe some water and coffee. We frequent the Outer Banks often and will not be returning to be aqua spa. Just didn't leave feeling as though it was money or time we'll spent. Please Keep in mind they automatically add a 20% tip to the service, which is tacky although I know not unheard
Of . They ask if "that is ok" but puts their clients in such an awkward position.... especially in a "spa" like this. Save your money and go elsewhere!

Have had many massages before, but Melaine, was the best by far. Pressure was perfect, the atmosphere is lovely and relaxing. The wax by Lisa was also one of the best. She is very experienced and provided an excellent wax, bikini lip and eye brow. often times I shy away from trying a new person for these services but I really was desperate, Lisa was great,

This spa was nice and where else would you go in the obx for a good massage? Too small for my taste, one shower, no steam rooms, hot tub, etc. I waited with my 82 year old mother in a room with robes on and in walked 2 older men, too creepy for me, I need a woman's only waiting room. The massage was expensive for my taste $110 for an hour, I have had better for less.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of Aqua Spa. We do offer spa services for everyone but certainly understand your desire for a woman's own waiting area and water amenities. We hope to see you again in the OBX.

Happily reserved two spa services- a massage and pedicure. Both were fantastic!!! Ask for Mike for an awesome massage.
