I've used Emerald Sanctuary for 3 massages so far and today's hot stone massage with Bruce was the best yet! Very professional, great combination of relaxing massage and pressure where needed and the hot stones add an extra level of muscle therapy. It is very convenient to our condo and their website makes it simple and quick to book. I... More

My mom and I went for the massage and mini facial special. We had 80 minute massages followed by the mini facials. Krystal did mom's massage and Bruce did mine. I went in with a tension headache/migraine. Bruce worked all the right spots with the perfect amount of pressure. I felt great and my headache was gone when we walked... More

The massage from Krystal was perfect pressure and relaxing. I also got a facial, body wrap and spa mani/pedi. The body wrap was relaxing although it was different than any other body wrap I've received. She used warm towels and a wrap to hold heat in. The facial was mini one so no exfoliation involved. The mani/pedi was good, but... More

My husband found this place online early in the morning yesterday and booked a couple's massage in the afternoon for our wedding anniversary. I think he was kind of leary walking in to a strip mall, but once inside the spa is very quaint and calming. We were greeted by my masseuse, Bruce, who was very polite and brought out... More

I've had several massages here and it is now the way I start my beach vacation. This place is excellent and I won't go anywhere else. I've had several different therapists and they are all really good.

This is a must do while on vacation in Destin. They do the best massages and facials. I also had a manicure that was great. The shop is located in a small strip mall but don't let that fool you, the shop is very nice. I wish Krystal would move to our area. She has the magic touch.

The Emerald Sanctuary is just what the name implies. A great massage,facials or mani-pedi within an hour and a half notice. Novelty atmosphere and knowledgable professionals to ease sore and aching muscles.

My fiance and I got a massage here while on vacation. While the building is not your typical spa building and they do not have a steam room or shower, they do give one heck of a massage. I would recommend this to anyone on vacation that needs a little time from the beach! The couples massage was great, people... More

My wife gets massages all the time, but I do not. We arrived and were promptly greeted by a male therapist who was very easy going. He talked to both of us briefly as we filled out the the required form and was very entertaining. The other female therapist came in the room and joined in the interview process. She... More

I recently had the good fortune of being able to spend a month in the Sandestin, Florida area. I spent almost every day on the beach. Needless to say, I got a lot of sun and my skin became very dry. Before I left, I searched for a hydrating treatment. I looked at all the salon reviews and treatments offered... More
