Paige is the best waxer I've ever been to. You don't have to be nervous with her. She's quick and as painfree as possible! She makes you feel so comfortable and does an awesome job. She has a special talent. Not everyone can do what she does! She's amazing!!! I would recommend her to everyone! I would give her more than 5 stars if I could!

Best massage and facial I ever had.

Best massage and facial I ever had.

Pros: everything

Cons: I live too far away from this place

.

Exceptional customer service, staff, and service. People there are extremely friendly and helpful, and are making sure that your expectations are being met, regardless of whether it's just an eyebrow wax or a complete spa package! Yes, it's on the pricier side, but it's also not your average massage joint and so to me, it's money well worth spent.

Move over LaBelle, Hello Destino Spa. What a hidden SHANGRI-LA!!! Amazing customer service and my masseuse Sam was out of this world. The massage I got was extremely therapeutic and I have to say, I forgot all about my problems under his spell of his magical hands. A must VISIT spa. I felt like I was somewhere else...the ambiance just takes you away. The place was so clean and friendly. Worth every dime. I highly recommend Destino. Forget LaBelle. I have been wasting my money at the wrong spa. Destino has now acquired a new regular client. Request for SAM with the magical hands.

Pros: Ambience just takes your breath away

When I received the massage I asked her to focus on my shoulders and she spent all of 5-10 minutes on the upper back and zero time on the top of my shoulder. Needless to say, the kinks never got worked out. I also had to leave early due to an infant at home and wanted to come back to do my facial and they wanted to change an extra 50% plus the full price. Oh heck NO. The Spa ?decor? had a lot to be desired and I wasn?t overly impressed with the steam room. It Looked like your average shower.

It has taken me ten years to find a local masseuse who can use enough pressure for her treatment to be therapeutic, yet no so deep as to be painful. Charina is fantastic and so are her knowledge and techniques--she asked me what my trouble spots were and I told her the main ones, but she found the others intuitively. Worth every last penny.

Well if you don't seem to care about money or have plenty to pamper yourself this is the place to go. The place looks fabulous and they have all kind of packages to suit your need and demand. The staff is highly qualified and competent. But am not sure if this is worth the price you pay...atleast not worth enough to me.

My daughter goes to a wonderful gal here by the name of Julie for teen facials. Julie is very gentle and is good at teaching kids how to take care of their skin.

I had a great message at Destino. The person giving the massage was very experienced, effecient, and personable. I had a great experience and would recommend you try Destino for your next spa treatment.

It's a nice place to get pampered once in a while. A bit on the expensive side, but service is good. Facials are a real treat, a relaxing and thoroughly therapeuic holiday for the soul

Sometimes I make an appointment to go to Destino spa rigt after work. The first time I visited the spa, it came highly recommended by a friend. I was a little weary of going to such a high end spa in such a high end area. But everything was wonderful. The staff as well as the patrons were great, very friendly and real. I recieved an mani/pedi and eyebrow wax. The lady that did my wax job was absolutely amazing. She did not even need to ask me what I wanted, she suggested what would look nice for my face shape. And the wax that she used did not sting, burn, or leave my face red. Even though it is a little pricy, it is well worth it. I really want to go back and try one of their facials. Most patrons give you recommendations about what to try and I also found that very helpful.

Every visit to Destino Spa has been an amazing, relaxing escape from my super busy schedule. The decor is very inviting and I love to shop the spa products. It has been not only the perfect place to relax, but a great place to get birthday and holiday gifts for friends! Always time for shopping!

I love Destino's! The staff is amazing, so professional and experienced. When Christine (owner) greets you at the front desk with a warm smile you know that you are in for a relaxing experience. From the moment you step in to Destino's, you know that it is an upscale establishment and that you are in for a treat. As soon as I get there, all outside stress just melts away. Christine has created a relaxing "get away" retreat from lifes busy schedules. They offer many different types of services and Christine always has seasonal promotions that are conveniently e-mailed to you if you are on their mailing list. I love that they think of all the small details.

Every time I come to Destino, I am amazed how much I can relax just walking through the doorway. Christine Rivera has created a Asian inspired oasis where she and her staff personally attend to the details that makes visitors feel like treasured guests. I have recieved many but not all of the services offered. Staff members are obviously well trained and dedicated to providing an exceptional experience.

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.

Pros: Friendly, Attentive, peaceful

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

This spa is fabulous to say the least... My treatment started with an exotic scrub, a detox wrap, and an AMAZING facial! The facial was the best I have ever had... which is saying a lot for a picky spa goer like myself!!
The smells, sounds, and professionalism of the staff left me wanting more! Not to mention I forgot I wasn't even on vacation... This was truly an experience to remember. I will be back at LEAST every month! Worth it!
