My boyfriend gave me a gift certificate for Urban Oasis massage and facial and OMG it was amazing!!! The staff is extremely kind and soft-spoken. The ambiance was calming and very soothing. I went on a Friday after a long week of work and was so relaxed right when I walked in. The service was PERFECT and I will definitely use their services from now on. Trust me, I've been to many spas around the city and this is by far the best I've been to! So nice to go to a spa in Midtown that has parking, welcoming smiles and an array of services that are affordable even in this economy. Thanks for giving us a break!

Pros: Tranquil environment & easy to get them on my schedule. Flawless services, atmosphere, staff, refreshments
Cons: None yet!

If you're looking for a great waxists, go no further than Urban oasis! I highly recommend Catherine or Tran. They are both quick, thorough, discreet, and makes you feel comfortable. Since my first wax appointment at urban oasis , I haven't gone to anyone, anywhere else.

Pro: Everything is clean, nice/neat. Great customer service
Con: none

I love this spa! My skin has been breaking out for about 2 months which is abnormal for me so I decided to get a hydrating facial with a few treatments that the esthetician recommended. I was greeted and given cookies with a glass of cucumber water. This was the best facial I have ever had. I could feel the acne being treated and was excited to see the results from the steam treatment and extractions. I could literally not believe my eyes in the morning. Not only was my skin almost flawless but it was very moisturized and glowing. My dark spots from acne scarring was significantly lighter and the skin was smooth where the breakouts had previously been. I am in the beauty industry and appreciate a good service when I get one. I highly recommend this spa to anyone with any skin problems or just in need of a calming experience. I will definitely be back!

Words cannot describe what Catherine (Vanny) and Urban Oasis have done for my skin. Before I started going to Catherine, I was almost scared of the experience but she has really taught me how to care for my skin without torturing it with excessive extractions, Microdermabrasion, and peels. She takes the time to work through all the impurities while also managing to nurture your skin every step of the way, it's almost as if every facial experience is customized for what you need that day. It's not only the experience during the treatment but Catherine is a genius when it comes to educating you on the right products to use. Any at home care she recommends I take immediately as the track record has been phenomenal; my skin does not stop glowing! By far this is the best and only place I would ever go to for my facials. I actually purchase gift certificates for all of my friends on their birthdays because I feel everyone who has ever suffered from problematic skin or just a bad facial experience, should visit Urban Oasis. It's guaranteed to change your life!

"Meh, I've experienced better!" Friendliness from the staff was definitely appreciated, but couldn't compensate for the pricey services and mediocre outcome. I had a mani/pedi, and while the atmosphere is clean and nice, my hole in the wall center does a better, more thorough job than this "day spa". They use many old sticky color, and the vinylx that was supposed to compare to gel in terms of lasting color, was overrated. It's 3 days later, and I have 3 chipped nails. I've been on vacay, not washing dishes or manual labor! I think massages/other services may be worth it, but if you're going for nails--hit up a basic place. Also , it was dead empty for a Friday afternoon, I should have known better.

I have been going to see Ms. Tran for my nails.

I strongly recommend her for the followings reason: 1/ she takes her time on my mani/pedis. 2/ Perfect polish application every time (no bubble, dont turn yellow) 3/ normal nail polish last for more than a week on me, Shellac last likes forever, seriously. 4/ She works real hard on my callus!!! 5/ She is super nice and doesn't talk a lot.

I've recently moved to Houston from Dalllas, TX for a new job. After all of the stressfull moving, I decided for a massage. I did some research on yelp and found of a new dayspa in midtown. I booked a 60 minute hot stone massage with Vannie. It was amazing, hands down the best I have ever had. The massage was so relaxing that I caught myself snoring a couple times. I will absolutley be back.

After doing a whole bunch of research, I choose Urban Oasis Day Spa. This was the best decision I could of made for my birthday service and treatment. Chris works there and did my massage and my back has not felt this good in a long time! Thanks Chris, especially for those glasses of wine I had there. Awesome!!! I will be back. Oh, can forget; I also had the best facial ever, almost felt like I just had Botox...lol, but I did not, however my skin was glowing for my birthday party. \r
Price was affordable and the location is not too bad once you know where you're going!

Just received my first lash extension done, and wow, my lashes look amazing. I tried multiple local salons in West U and Bellaire area and I can easily point out several things why Urban Oasis tops them all. \r
First of all, the styles, there are many different looks available, but only a few suites your eyes and your face best. The technicians here were able to do that. They can point out the strength, length of your natural lash to guild you in lash styles not only for the perfect look but also for your natural lash health. Second, the technicians that perform extensions are certified and on staff, not just any on-call ladies. You also need to watch-out because one of my friend got extension done and the on-call lady used super glue for her lashes. I wrote this long review because I am extremely happy with my lash extension. They look gorgeous and very comfortable. The staff was super friendly and the spa itself was clean and relaxing. I cant disclose my technician name because I <3 that person so much. Highly recommended. :D \r

I used to live in Houston and usually went to Urban Oasis Day Spa for my waxing services. I was visiting Houston for Christmas. I booked a mani/pedi for my sister and I. Best manicure and pedicure, hands down, that I've had in years. Tram is amazing. My nails looked beautiful and the polish stayed on my hands without a chip for over a week which is very very unusual as I'm on the computer all day long. My pedicure was just the best thing. The salon is very upscale, yet you feel wonderfully comfortable there. Some upscale, high-end salons have the rudest staff, but not at Urban Oasis. Everyone I dealt with was smiling, kind, and accommodating. \r
\r
My nails ROCKED. It was fresh and new and brightened up my whole look. I love Tran.\r
Thanks everyone. \r

I really admire that Urban Oasis puts clients' experience as their top priority. I received a friendly reminder call for my Saturday Facial appointment last Friday. They were very flexible with me and helped me choose my time frame, the time that works best for me, not their busy Saturday schedule.\r
Upon arrival, I received a 15 mins consultation with Catherine before my treatment time. This small lady really wants to know about my skin, my home care regime, and recommended me a different facial than just a regular deep cleansing facial due to my skin issues. So I received a Firming Facial instead. The whole treatment was very relaxing. She did a throughout extraction job but was very gentle, she cleaned my skin very well. You can tell when you have received a good facial and this was one of those experiences. She also included scalp massage or stretching which is very unique since you will be laying for awhile. \r
The ambiance was very relaxing. The water tasted great. The staff was very friendly. I strongly recommend Urban Oasis Day Spa.\r

After hours of searching for the perfect place for my 10 years anniversary, I found Urban Oasis. I am so glad that I did.\r
\r
I scheduled 1 hour couple massage, body foliation for me and gentleman facial for my husband, then mani/pedi. They called ahead to remind me of my appointments and I told them that it is for my anniversary. The lady was very sweet and told me to rest assure, everything will be taken care of.\r
\r
We arrived and was greeted with smiling staff, big +, we was then offered glass of red wine before our massage and directed to change to spa robe. Both massage therapists were great. The lady that did my massage was amazing, she just knew where to start and the whole time it was so relaxing. My husband facial was great, he realy needed it. We then both have the honey mooner pedicures, that has both honey and milk to nourish the feet. This wasn't his first pedicure but he seem to enjoy it a lot, compare to the first time. We have such a wonderful time there. the staff was so nice, the services were A+, wonderful.\r

It was hardly a 'spa'. More like an upscale typical nail salon. The wax room was a small triangular room, that seemed like an afterthought. I would say 6' by 4' by 3'. The bed was shoved up against the wall, so the waxer could only wax from one side. The wax used was typical strip wax that is used on your face. Should NOT be used on Brazilian waxes. The waxer tried to blame the excruciating pain on the fact that it had been a couple of years since my last Brazilian. That was an excuse - the very first Brazilian I had was NOWHERE near as painful. I asked if they used the blue hard wax, and she said yes, but only brought back some slightly more hard wax. She also wore gloves out of the room to go get the harder wax, and came back wearing the same gloves and I had to ask her to change them again. I ended up not allowing her to finish, and going to an actual professional wax salon to have them fix the mess leftover. I feel sorry for anyone who has never had a Brazilian and tried this salon for the first time. I hope they try an actual profession wax salon, where they specialize in waxing.

I am so so so glad I found Rebecca! She does massage and facials and you can tell she really knows her stuff. My husband's job transfered us to Houston from California and I was hesitant about finding a hair stylist, a new massage therapist, a new facialist, a new gym, etc etc etc! (cause it just takes so so long to find the right, truly qualified person). Anyway, I had a package with a massage and a facial and WOW. Rebecca knew just where to work and where to touch during my massage. She is very knowledgeable about her job! and then she did the most gentle extractions I have ever had done! I ended up having an hour and a half facial but my skin looked amazing afterwards! I will be back VERY VERY soon! :) Thanks Rebecca!

Best spa in the area. It deserves a 5-Star rating. It's a true oasis from the city. I will definitely be back after I have the baby. \r
\r
Check-in was professional and quick. Locker/shower room was very pleasant, spacious, and clean. I was there on a Friday afternoon, and I felt like I had the whole locker room to myself. It was very peaceful.\r
\r
Now to the treatment itself. The only treatment I can review is the pre-natal massage, and it was pretty amazing. The first few minutes were spent fiddling around with their cushions...they don't use tables with a belly-hole in it (which is not recommended anyway by doctors)...they use these adjustable cushions made to prop up the torso with a divet in the middle for the pregnant belly. Since I'm pregnant, I couldn't get completely comfortable with the cushions, so we did a side-lying massage. The lady knew exactly how to position me on my side with towels and cushions... so she positioned my upper body so that there was no pressure on me. Perfect! After that it was an hour and 20 minutes of bliss. My massage therapist, Maziel, was stellar. What she did in 55 minutes (we talked through 5 minutes of my 60 minute session) was impressive - clearly she is an experience and talented professional. I like their warm, friendly, SMILING staff members, who can assist me, keep the locker room clean and are knowledgeable about the treatments. \r

Catherine is awesome. Period. I found her through a friend and have been going for facials numerous times over the year. \r
\r
One thing that I'd like to highlight here, that Catherine is all about educating you - so you know your skin better, know what ingredients that is good for your skin and what is not, know how to use your facial scrub properly, know why mask would actually do good for you, etc etc. \r
\r
She uses Dermalogica on me - which was new to me but I found as a really great line of skin care product. I always left Catherine's place with a clean, supple and 'feel pampered' complexion.\r
\r
If you're a first timer, schedule your appointment soon because her weekends schedule fill up so fast, but if you call her, she might be able to work something out for you. Very nice and accommodating (didn't I tell you she's awesome?). \r
\r
Oh, she would also ask you to list all the products that you use on your face (skin care and makeup), and she will do the research for you whether or not it's a good product for you. Yep. She's that awesome.\r

I got a brazilian waxing with Catherine recently. Phenomenal attention to details, impeccably clean. I also had a spa package as a gift some time ago. It was a half of the day very well spent.

I was searching for a spa near downtown Houston for a girls weekend. I read up on this place and liked the sound of it so i called to find out what options they could do for us. BEST DECISION EVAR! \r
\r
We ended up doing a spa party and had the entire place to ourselves for the day. One of our party wanted a female massage therapist which they said was no issue. Low and behold we get an entire female staff for our girls day! The service was beyond phenomenal; We did massages, facials, body glows, pedi's etc and from start to finish the staff was professional, accommodating and delightful! \r
\r
There were so many awesome things about this place I don't even know where to begin. The building is gorgeous, the spa itself is very relaxing and soothing. They had champagne and fruit for us to indulge in between treatments. I highly suggest the body glow, its probably my favorite thing ever. The products all smelled delicious and were not to heavy, Nothing oily etc. \r
\r
The owner was there the whole time and even did some of the treatments for our group. They take their jobs seriously here and are very dedicated to making sure your experience is perfect.\r
\r
I could keep going for hours about how awesome this place is. If you want an awesome spa in Houston, this is the place! \r

I was searching for a spa near downtown Houston for a girls weekend. I read up on this place and liked the sound of it so i called to find out what options they could do for us. BEST DECISION EVAR! \r
\r
We ended up doing a spa party and had the entire place to ourselves for the day. One of our party wanted a female massage therapist which they said was no issue. Low and behold we get an entire female staff for our girls day! The service was beyond phenomenal; We did massages, facials, body glows, pedi's etc and from start to finish the staff was professional, accommodating and delightful! \r
\r
There were so many awesome things about this place I don't even know where to begin. The building is gorgeous, the spa itself is very relaxing and soothing. They had champagne and fruit for us to indulge in between treatments. I highly suggest the body glow, its probably my favorite thing ever. The products all smelled delicious and were not to heavy, Nothing oily etc. \r
\r
The owner was there the whole time and even did some of the treatments for our group. They take their jobs seriously here and are very dedicated to making sure your experience is perfect.\r
\r
I could keep going for hours about how awesome this place is. If you want an awesome spa in Houston, this is the place! \r

I love this spa! My skin has been breaking out for about 2 months which is abnormal for me so I decided to get a hydrating facial with a few treatments that the esthetician recommended. I was greeted and given cookies with a glass of cucumber water. This was the best facial I have ever had. I could feel the acne being treated and was excited to see the results from the steam treatment and extractions. I could literally not believe my eyes in the morning. Not only was my skin almost flawless but it was very moisturized and glowing. My dark spots from acne scarring was significantly lighter and the skin was smooth where the breakouts had previously been. I am in the beauty industry and appreciate a good service when I get one. I highly recommend this spa to anyone with any skin problems or just in need of a calming experience. I will definitely be back!\r

What a treat! The Urban Oasis Spa is not cheap but it is luxurious in every way. A truly relaxing spa with incredible service & one of the best facials a girl could dream of.

I love, love, love Catherine and Maziel and their amazing treatments at Urban Oasis Spa! Catherine is the best aesthetician I have ever met. She is super nice, caring, attentive and extremely knowledgeable of the science of skin. She takes time to get to know her clients' skin, skin care regime and lifestyle and adjusts her treatments to their individual needs. She guides you through every single step of the treatment and explains not only what she is doing but why she is doing it. Catherine is so gentle and her touch is magical! She has a very positive attitude and I think her presence itself has a (skin-) healing power! She is always happy to give recommendations on products but has never ever been pushy or tried to talk me into something my skin doesn't need.\r
\r
I could not be happier with my experience with Maziel, one of the massage therapists at the spa. Her expertise and healing hands are simply amazing. She will make sure to work out all your knots. Everyone else in the spa seems very friendly and courteous and Angelica at the front desk makes sure that all their clients are well taken care of. You will love it\r

I've been to a few different spas, had different treatments, and I keep coming back to Urban Oasis. You just can't beat their facilities. They keep it dimly lit and quiet, and you're completely able to zen-out for the whole day if you want. Every treatment I've had there (Firming Facial, Hot stone Massage, and Citrus pedicure) have all been exceptional and I've left feeling much better than when I arrived. You feel like the therapists really care about their jobs and treat you like their only client they're seeing that day, whereas I've been to places where you can tell the service was as routine as a dental cleaning.

A spiritual journey! Loved the service, my facial and massage were the best I've ever had. Vanny is so knowledgeable about skin treatment! The energy of the spa is perfectly balanced. I'm telling all my friends to come and check out this little paradise!

I have scheduled several appointments to try all of their services. I have done Facials, massage, pedicures and manicures. I have upcoming appointments to try their eye lash extensions, which a friend of mine had done by Tom and she looked amazing! She loves how natural it looks and she has no need to use mascara anymore. I also have a future appointment for spray tan which I look forward to that day. Need to start getting ready for Summer!!\r
\r
I've had both Johnathan and Maziel for massage and they were amazing!!! give them 5 stars. they both took the time to ask me what my trouble areas are and focused on them. I felt in heaven after my massages.\r
\r
Maziel also did ""nourish body treatment"" Needless to say my skin felt amazing after, it included body exfoliation and a masque to moisturize my skin. I did this treatment 2 weeks ago and I can still feel my skin is better after that. \r
\r
My facial with Vanny was awesome! she gave me a facial that best suited my needs and concerns abig plus on the facial, they use Skinceuticals and dermalogica for their skin therapies. she also took the time to explain to me how to use some products I needed to buy because I was out anyways. \r
\r
I am definately hooked! Everyone is so friendly and make you feel great to be there. The prices are reasonable, so no guilt to get pampered. \r
I joined their Facebook, they are really good about having different deals, I am taking advantage this week for Jonathan week and I will receive 20% off my massage. \r
\r
Hope this helps to all those who would like to try this place.\r

I booked a facial, eyebrow waxing and pink and white fill on a Friday early afternoon. \r
\r
First issue - my appointment was at 2:00 and the place was empty, but it started 20 minutes late. While I waited, I drank water out of little form cups - not very luxurious. Another problem with the atmosphere is the music. They play some spa channel for Sirius Radio so the music is constantly interrupted by the radio's tag line.\r
\r
The facial was ok, but I was disappointed in the massage technique that went with it. Since it was 40% off, I felt like it was worth it but I would never book it again for full price. I get facial every month and maybe I have been spoiled by some amazing service. Houston has better facialists - go elsewhere!\r
\r
The nail fill was absolutely horrible! The young man butchered my nails. The white tips were half way down my finger and you could see pink coming through. He filed them at different lengths and in an awkward shape. \r
\r
He even admitted that he does not do nails! \r
\r
Although the location is convenient, I would never go back. I don't think they will be in business long anyways.\r
\r
\r
UPDATE: The very nice staff at Urban Oasis offered me a free facial and massage to make up for my bad experience. It was a very thoughtful gesture and they were all wonderful hosts when I scheduled my sessions. This time they had real glasses! My massage was very nice. Although I'll stick to my other massage therapist, I would recommend a massage if you find yourself at Urban Oasis. I still can't recommend the facial especially since I just found the most amazing woman in the Heights who is an actual skin expert. Their facial is relaxing but is not going to revolutionize your skin. Maybe its good for a newbie to facials, but I like to see improvement in my skin tone and to get deep extractions (maybe TMI sorry). Again, I have to praise them on their location and ease of parking. It does have a very relaxing ambiance and they are great at scheduling you at convenient times. Although not open Sundays, which I really think can set a spa apart.

If you simply want the best massage of your life - book an appointment with Vanny! She was highly recommended - and it is safe to say that I now, will never book a massage with anyone else in Houston. She was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I cannot wait to have a massage from her again!

Also ask her for a facial - you will not be disappointed! This was the best facial I've ever received - and I have had A LOT! She is GREAT - and will give you some really good advice on things you can do at home to keep your skin looking great. She knows more than anyone about facial products and which ones to use on different types of skin. I would highly recommend her for facials and massages!!!!
