I have been there a few times, and it is cute but the customer care is awful. I got a reminder email the day before my appointment that I booked a month in advance. I wanted to change it, but the lady that I talked to said there is a 24

AWA is a beautiful spa with a friendly staff. The facials I've had there have been the best of my life - once I hit my 40's my skin seemed to lose its luster, but after a visit to AWA all is well.\r

It's a quiet, beautiful spot. Now

I have traveled around the world. But I have to say that my best facial was at Awa.
I had a hydrating facial with Karoline, and I have to say that her hands, just took all of my stress away. She is very knowledgeable. She is not your typical Esthetician, who just want you to come in and buy the products and thats it. She actually cares about your needs and concerns.
With my facial, I had an eyebrow waxing, which I have to say, they look amazing.
I am very pleased with her. And I am planing to have a facial every month with her.
Also, if you like teas, they have the best ones!
Sucess to all from Awa

Awa spa is a great day spa!!! Everyone who works there is amazing!
They made sure that i was confortable, and enjoying everything. I had a couple of treatments, but what made me love this spa was the Esthetician that I had. Her name is Karoline. She gave me the best facial I ever had!!! And the brazilian wax was painless, compared to anywhere else.
I will be back soon!
Sucess to everyone from awa!

I am a mother of four and was looking for a serene, relaxing, mind-quieting place away from it all.

The thought of spending most of my day in a "sanctuary" was very appealing.

The second I stepped into the cottage and heard the cascading sounds of waterfalls, smelled the pleasant scent of aromatherapy and Ellen greeted me like an expected guest instead of a customer, I knew AWA was the place for me.

I had scheduled a waxing, a therapeutic massage, a manicure and a pedicure.
It was to be my very first time having a "brazilian waxing" and I was very nervous. Karoline was extremely reassuring and explained everything step by step. She made me feel at ease and comfortable.

Karoline is an "old soul" whose wisdom and thirst for enlightenment goes way beyond her years and her caring demeanor can make anyone feel at ease.

Kylie, my masseuse, had small, delicate hands that worked so intricately to relax even the tiniest of my tightest muscles. It made leaving the massage table unbearable.

My pedicure and manicure was performed by Alexandra. She was delightful, caring and detailed-oriented.

The owner, Germaine, was not there, but judging by the "ladies" who were very attentive to my needs, I would say she is all about exceptional customer service and personable care.

I would definitely recommend AWA to all my friends, family, business partners and customers.

I would like to thank all the wonderful "SOULS" at AWA, whom I now consider like family, for making a mother of four feel like the most important person in the world.

This spa is a hidden jewel! I recently visited Awa with some of my friends, and we had an amazing experience. The atmosphere is relaxing, the women who work at the spa are knowledgeable and fun, and the services are among the best I've had anywhere. I was just there a few days ago, but I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

This must have been the fastest and least painful Brazilian Wax I have ever had done. I searched for a while to find a place in Tampa that uses Hard waxes and I FINALLY found AWA. The get an A+++++ from me.

I consider myself an avid spa goer. But my experience at Awa surpassed all others. It is not a very big spa, but it offered me all the luxuries I needed. From the slippers and the robe I changed into, to the refreshng tonic I was offered prior to my treatment. Unlike other spas where you feel like a number shuffled through, at Awa I felt that I was given all the attention and relaxation I was craving. My facial (which happened to be from the owner) was personalized and pampered. She was incredibly knowledgeable and perceptive. She has an Angel's touch and my skin has never felt and looked better. I highly recommend this spa.

As a 7 month pregnant woman, I was in desperate need of some TLC. My prenatal massage was so relaxing and my massage Therapist was very nice and caring. I love you all at Awa Spa. Thank you for taking such good care of me. I will be back !

For Mother's day, my husband and kids gave me a gift certificate from Awa. I was eager to try this spa out. My spa package included a Facial, Massage, Manicure and Pedicure. I have recently visited a very prestigeous spa in New York city, but the facial I received at Awa was so much more amazing. It was not just a gentle facial, it was a relaxing experience. I felt incredibly relaxed during the treatment and skin has never looked better. The Esthetician had to wake me up from the dream state I was in. The girl that did my Manicure and Pedicure was an absolute delight. I loved the choice of tonic that she offered me before starting the treatment. She massaged my legs and my feet, and was very detailed with the nail treatment, which I needed badly. And the SCENTS..... how beautiful !! I choose a rose and peppermint scent that was to die for. I did not want to leave.....

I really thought that a Brazilian wax was going to be much more painful, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was completely hair-free by the end of the treatment and my skin was not irritated at all. The therapist was very accomodating and professional. Since I expected the experience to be incredibly painful, (which it was not) I had booked a massage after my wax. The massage was the best I have ever had. The entire spa experience was wonderful. My friend came in with me for moral support (I was afraid of doing the Brazilian at first). She opted for a Manicure and Pedicure. She is usually quite picky, but she absolutely enjoyed her experience. I convinced her to get a Brazilian wax and we are going back for their Girls' Night on Thursday.

For a spa that has so much to offer, the last couple times I've been has been horible. The first bad experience was my waxing. It was dreadful and yes I've had waxing's before. It had been a while since I went back so I thought I'd try it again and get a pedicure and manicure. It wasn't that she wasn't nice. She was but it took over 3 hours and then I noticed that they were short staffed and the girl had to keep running up front to check other people out. During my manicure, she kept sticking her fingers in the polish and what should have been a pampered experience turned into 3 hours @ $100 for nothing great. I will never go back there again and it's a shame because it has potential but maybe they just have a hard time keeping people. One thing that was nice is that I had mentioned to the girl that checked me out what was included in the manicure and come to find out it wasn't what I paid for so she did fix the manicure.

I have visited many spas around the country, but the experience at Awa spa by far exceeded my expectations. The facial I received was the best one I have ever had. Not only were the treatments heavenly, but the staff was incredibly accomodating. The entire facility is so relaxing. I could spend hours relaxing in their lounge, sipping on my tonic while being completely hypnotized by the relaxing waterfall across the comfy couch.

Pros: Too many to list

I've had many brazilian waxes, and I am never left "red" after the treatment. Facial was decent, but if you are looking for a "real" massage, I don't recommend this place. Atmosphere was so-so. For the price I paid, I really expected a lot more. Save your money and keep searching!
