Professional, Courteous, Effective
The title sums up my experience - the providers know their business and really take care of the guest's needs and comforts. I felt cared for and rejuvenated after my appointment. The location is serene and away from noise and daily humdrum, which too I appreciated.

I was Blue Heaven spa for Panchakarma in Nov '14. My experience was blissful and nothing compares. If you have the slightest desire to improve your well being and learn precious knowledge of self healing, look no further. You will return invigorated and rejuvenated with life long practical knowledge. Love this place and people will return as soon as I get the next opportunity!

Relaxing Getaway
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway and that's exactly what we got! The entire facility had a wonderful calming vibe and all of the staff were very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. They had several activities at the hotel. We attended a fun pottery class and had several relaxing massages during our stay. The massages left us feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! Overall, we had a phenomenal experience and I would highly recommend this spa!

excellent experience
The trip to the Spa from Boone downtown on Tuesday was very pleasant, the natural surroundings, wildflowers, farms the abundance of vegetation and color,was already worthwhile. The Spa is located at a beautiful higher spot. The views in the waiting room, the Decor, colors ,ambiance are conducive to relaxation and calmness . I was greeted by an enthusiastic manager, that listened carefully and counseled me , on what he thought would fill my request.I was interested in Ayurvedic treatments and i was told that western therapies are available as well. I was greeted by a smiling professional that performed a two hour combined treatment that left me in a better place than when i first came. My skin was radiant, my body was relaxed and felt healthier, cared for. the connection between mind and body or body and mind was very clear, and reassuring. I have learned that there is a lot that this resort can offer, an hotel, food, yoga, courses. I plan to come back .I recommend this place for those who are seeking modalities and therapies that have a long history and tradition of being helpful and kind ;to our physical as well as mental /emotional experience.
