An unexpected, unique find in the middle of The Pearl. Schedule a 45 min session in the salt grotto, read a book, meditate or quietly share a conversation with your grotto companion. The medium sized room is lined with salt tiles, the ground is covered with loose sea salt, reminiscent of a large sand box, a water feature creates tranquil background noise. Kids are welcome too.
A friend made me come here with her because she swore it changed her life. I went in all dubious, and came out a believer. The chair massage is worth the upgrade. Bring lots of water, and something to relax to. You'll zone out in lawn chairs with salt like sand all around you. 45min later you'll leave breathing better and your skin will glow (according to my GF my skin glowed anyways).
Amazing sanctuary in the city – The Salt Grotto is a spa, of sorts, where you can enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of natural salt (which ionizes the air). You know how if you go outside after a thunder-and-lightning storm, or if you're by the ocean, the air can feel invigorating and so refreshing? This charge in the air is from negative ions and that's what you get at the Salt Grotto. The ambience of the salt cave is great, and you can relax, read a book, play in the "sand" (which is really salt), etc. during your time in the cave. I think the place also offers massage and/or other spa services but I've never done any of those there. They do sell high-quality beauty care products too- I got a mud face mask there recently and love it.
Love it! – After one session in the Salt Grotto I felt relaxed yet energized. And it helped my allergies .
Salt Cave – This was a fantastic experience for my 12 yr old son who had respiratory and sinus issues. After 2 sessions at the Salt Grotto, he was feeling rejuvenated in energy and was able to breathe deeper without congestion.
