The experience I had making an appointment – Stumbling into Destino was unexpected! Walking into this Hidden Treasure was an experience! Being welcomed by a warm and gracious person at the front counter, with a huge smile, saying how are you, offerring something to drink, then asking how i am, and how she could help me (for all she knew, I could have been the mailman). Being from out of town, and not having an appointment, I inquired about massage. Turns out they were booked. Instead was offered a tour of the Spa, then lead to a relaxation room, to read over the brochure. I travel frequently to the bay area, and although I was never able to get an appointment that day, I felt very comfortable that Destino is the place I want to come back to fr a massage. I am anticipating my journey back to this little far and away place.
Paige and Julie are fantastic! – I went to Paige for my first waxing. I had some apprehension, but found out I had no reason to worry. After having my legs and underarms waxed, I trusted Paige to do a Brazilian, but I hadn't booked that in advance and it couldn't be worked in. Paige did a great job of making me feel comfortable.
After the waxing I had a Destino Journey facial with Julie. Julie also did a fantastic job, starting with a foot soak and massage, hand massage with heated mittens after, and a great facial. Both Paige and Julie are absolutely recommended!
Highend spa experience – Found this spa through citysearch. I was looking for a place that did traditional microdermabrasion. I wanted the kind that blasted crystal stream onto the face. Destino was the only one I could find on the internet in the Bay Area. (Later on, I found another one in Palo Alto's Town & Country).
When I arrived, I was greeted by a friendly staff. The waiting room had great atmosphere although it was a bit cramped. I was led into the spa room by Caroline. She did great job on the microderm. The suction from the machine was a bit too strong. So I had a little broken capillaries on my cheek. Other than that, it was a great experience and I purchased a series of 6 microderm on the spot.
Best Facials anywhere – Even though I have always enjoyed facials, I must admit that the effects were not really lasting in the past and my face would eventually break out. This until I found Destino and their truly expert staff. I get consistent compliments every time I visit the facialist at Destino and my skin does feel re-energized and smooth for days afterwards.
Really Nice Experience – I found this spa through citysearch and decided to give it a try. They have monthly packages available, and I was able to try a little of everything they offered; including a massage, facial, and soak. Then, even though I was nervous, I had my make-up done for an event, and it turned out great! I didn't even have to fix anything (which I always do afterwards!) I highly reccommend this spa, and already have my next appointments booked.
Great Escape – My husband arranged a spa day for me as a gift. It started with a customized massage and soak in a giant tub that was full of bubbles and candle-light. From there I recieved a customized facial. I was shocked by the attention to detail, and the fact that everything was customized for me. It really made me feel special, I think I know what I will get him for V'day!
Bliss – I would recommend this spa highly. I considered the experience soothing. Thanks.
Fabulous Spa!!! – What a great spa! I've been coming here for the past 2 years and have always had a great experience. I come frequently for facials and massages. I've also recommended Destino Spa to my friends and family that live in the bay area. The ambiance is very soothing and tranquil with fabulous spa treatments. Truly the most relaxing spa for me! The staff has always been Very helpful and Very accommodating.
Not worth it! – I had a facial here, and for the $95, it's not worth it! The girl who did my facial was very uneducated and pushed a ton of product on me. I felt like they looked at me as a dollar sign instead of a person. I do NOT recommend.
Amazing! – Destino is a wonderful place. The ambience is first-rate with soothing sights and smells. Despite the location and high quality, the staff is courteous and down-to-earth, without much attitude. Whenever I have called to make an appointment, the staff member is not just friendly, but helpful as well, recommending an ideal treatment for my situation. Usually after facials either I see no change, or my skin has broken out, but both times I have been to Destino, I could actually see the difference for days. The hot stone massage is out of this world. I would definitely return.
