I was told about Bergamos Rendezvous by a friend of my fiance's. I had told her I was looking for a place where I could walk in and feel that from start to finish my money was well spent. Im kinda picky that way.
For the most part I would say that I am not a spa guy. But I had heard great things about massages for a runner and so I figured I would try it out.
Best part of this spa was that they treated me as if I was a long time client and that I was an important part of their day. I guess my own ideas that spas are a "girl thing" had held me back. But I fit right in.
Not only was the service great and the massage therapist worked out some very tight running muscles, I also had time to shower shave and get ready for my date. I was shocked that they had so many things there available for me to use.
Overall - I would suggest this place to any of my friends. It was a great afternoon and a very relaxing thing to do before going downstairs for some drinks.
Suprised and Inspired – Im not much for reviews - but I thought I should post because I found this spa by a link to citysearch.
I have been to quite a few spas - and I guess what was the most impressive to me was the "extras"
Being new to reviews - I read some of the others just to see how people wrote...and I found it funny. Some of the pieces that I love the most were not even mentioned. I got a scrub treatment and the service was great because they had a very impressive 6 headed shower head swing. But it is the little things that suprised me. For instance, once my scrub was done there is a body butter that they have to help rejuv. your skin - I found it Amazing that she let me take the unused cream home with me to further my body treatment.
In between services I knew I would be able to relax like at any other spa - but here they had a steam room and a sauna...and once again the little things impressed me. There were cold towels waiting outside the hot sauna. There was iced tea and cookies outside the relaxation.
Overall the only down side is that I dont live closer. But for me it is worth the drive everytime I want to sit back and treat myself... or lessen my wrinkles (thank you facials!!) :)
Fabulous Spa – I have been in Houston for several months now and I normally do some regular spa treatments at a salon, but I wanted to treat myself to an experience since I was celebrating a milestone in my life. I am so glad I decided to try Bergamos Rendezvous Spa. I moved down here from New York and the spa reminded me of a place that would be on the Eastside. It is understated yet classic and elegant. The staff was friendly and attentive but not over bearing. The entire day it was all about me. I know that they had many other guests but I never seemed like a number. I was treated like I was the only one in the spa.
Since I was celebrating I tried a number of types of services. I think by the end of my treatments I must have had about six different people perform a service on me. It was fabulous! They knew their profession and even explained some things I was doing that would not be beneficial to what I wanted to accomplish. It seemed like everyone took the time to see me and I was not rushed through anything.
I thought about it and I spend the same money at a salon type experience when I could be having a spa like experience. I was so excited about the whole day I could not wait to tell my friend that I normally go with to do my standard upkeep about it.
Great Experience – So the girls and I decided to have a spa day- short notice of course! But despite this the staff worked with us to fit us all in together and around our schedule...I was truely amazed! When we first walked in we knew what to expect- the ambiance and demeanor of the place screamed "you will never want to leave!" We each had a spa package that included a facial and hot stone massage- the woman who did our facials was superb! She talked to us about what was good/bad/could improve and what to do- you could tell she genuinely loved her job and wanted to help us! I had never had a hot stone massage before and I have to admit was a bit of a skeptic....I'm the type of massage getter who wants you to essentially crush my muscles with all your might...so I wasn't sure is the stones would do the trick. I was wrong. It was great! If you have never had one before I strongly recommend it! One of my gfs was preggo and they treated her like royalty!....they have special treatments for you moms to be and according to her they are tops! I def recommend Bergamos at River Oaks for your next girls day- or just an excuse to feel amazing!
Very suprised! Great Day! – I received a giftcard for Xmas from one of my best friends. I was a little nervous about when I would be able to use it - I live in the Kingwood area; however, I decided - make a day of it. Treat myself to a day closer to the city and just relax. I go to many spas so I was excited to try out one in the middle of River Oaks. It held up to its prestigious location. Its a beautiful spa (I used the glass elevator to go upstairs after my lunch at Taco Milagro) and was welcomed by the staff. I was surprised at how many great products they have! Anyway, my day started... massage, body treatment, facial, and nails. Each professional continued the feel of "My day" All I can say is that I truly enjoyed myself and would recommend to all those out there that are just as picky as I am. I became a huge fan because this spa feels like a SPA not a "push me through and take my money" assembly line. I will be a Bergamos client going forward for sure! Cant wait for my next Day.
Big disappointment! – I try to get a massage at least 2-3 times a year and I love trying new places to find the best massage I can get (especially if they come recommended by City Search, Yelp, etc.). This is NOT it. I made an appointment to get the swedish massage with reflexology - I should have saved my money and just let my husband rub my feet for 10 minutes. The technician was clearly not interested in being there, several times during the massage using one hand and she never applied pressure to help the areas I told her needed working. Long story short, I paid a lot of money to have someone apply lotion. This is NOT the place to go for massage - I will never return.
Citysearch Editorial Review – This luxury, River Oaks spa offers body, skin and cosmetic treatments for both men and women.
Best Spa in River oaks – I went there for the first time with my company for a corporate party. The spa actually closed the spa for us and we had the place to ourselves, which was great. The covered parking in the garage was a cool touch since it was raining quite a bit.
My company treats us every year to a spa experience and this was the first year we used this spa. It was amazing. The staff were efficient, curious, professional, and superb at their craft. We all lounged in the relaxation areas and I took advantage of the steam room, others loved the dry sauna. There were over 20 of us, but it was the most relaxing day I have had in some time. My massage therapist was incredible; he worked out all of my stress in my shoulders. The esthetician gave me great advice on my skin and my facial made me look years younger. I know others in my group got manicures and pedicures and they love them. I am so glad my company chose them this year and I will not wait for next year to come back.
My Bridal Party/Spa day was great! – I wanted to show my bridal party my gratitute so I called to find out if they could accomodate me. Not only could they, but once they told me about the hot and cool pools and steam room that we can all use, I was sold. Not only could they work with my party of 9, but the offered to bring us lunch while we are waiting for our various services. I am so excited that we all get to share the experience together and get some relaxation in right before my big day!
Great way to start the evening – Our newest anniversary tradition of couples massage then an evening out has been spectacular. I love it and I am pretty sure my hubby does too. We don't even wait for our anniversay any more.
