My best friend and I enjoyed a couples massage in a private suite, sauna, steam and spa lunch over several hours, followed by a walk on the grounds and a stroll on the beach. Our best full spa day in the Jacksonville area.Secret Spa Reviewer

BEST MED SPA
4727 Sunbeam Road Suite #102, Jacksonville
Dr. Mary Pentel opened her Southside Dermatology practice in Jacksonville in 2000 and its medical and surgical dermatological services were enhanced by the onsite medical spa department, The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology, added in 2014. This top notch medical spa offers an extensive menu of expert skin care, including injectable fillers and Botox, skin tightening and body contouring devices, and laser treatments for the treatment of wrinkles, scars, acne, melasma, pigmentatry disorders, rosacea, vessels, leg veins, and more. The medical spa team offers non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments under the direct supervision of Dr. Pentel, who remains on site (unlike other medical spas with off-site supervision) to ensure effective and safe treatments. Dr. Pentel and her team are also certified in Oncology Esthetics specifically designed for cancer patients and survivors.
From the lash enhancements purely for fun, to the laser treatments which significantly improved my reddened rosacea nose and cheeks, to the microcurrent facial which actually made my face and brows look naturally lifted, every treatment and every team member of the Spa and Laser Center at Dr. Pentel’s practice has been wonderful for me. Coupled with the clean, comfortable, lovely and spacious spa area, this investment has been worth every penny.Secret Spa Reviewer
BEST DAY SPA - MASSAGE
4663 River City Drive Jacksonville
Our readers nominated and tipped us to the Jacksonville’s Natural Body Spa to enjoy our best massage and our Secret Spa Reviewers agreed. Natural Body Jacksonville features 13 massage and esthetic treatment rooms, two private manicure/pedicure rooms, a couples massage room with a private water wall, private changing room and shower facility, and a shoppe with more than 1,000 square feet of Natural Body care, natural skincare lines used in the massage and facial services, aromatherapy, candles, and custom gift baskets.
It was particularly nice to leave the spa feeling lighter than air and be able to shop and dine in a lovely shopping center afterward. This is now my go-to spa for massage because I’m an avid tennis and golf player and am constantly sore, it seems like. I always am put to rights after a visit here. Plus, I appreciated that my therapists, Kathleen a year or so back, and Jennifer this year, engaged in no aggressive sales-pitches for products or services. As one who enjoys various spa treatments all over Florida twice a month on average, the constant pressure to spend on products can negate the healing I seek in the first place.Secret Spa Reviewer
BEST SALON SPA - MANICURES AND PEDICURES
150 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville
Marilyn Monroe Spas and Nail Lounges are fun, vibrant, luxury and accessible in one fell swoop. Our readers love the nail lounges and locations with additional services, like this one. In addition to manicures and pedicures, guests at the Jacksonville Nail Salon can also enjoy facials and a massage in a private treatment room. The manicures and pedicures in this location got highest marks for Jacksonville.
I confess I used to be patron of a so-called chop shop. In fast, out fast, inexpensive pedicures and manicures. I knew they used blades and things they were not supposed to, but I thought this was actually a plus — I needed that extra help and thought the regulations and such were a bunch of hooey. I thought spa pedicures were over-priced until I was asked the simple question: “Why do you value your health so little? Is saving $10 worth loosing a nail, a toe, or worse?” NO. I went to the Marilyn Monroe Nail Lounge, plus 3 others, in a four (4) month period. This Nail Lounge was the cleanest, with the most attention to regulations and details, and the aesthetics of my mani and pedi were clearly the best. The work lasted longer, my feet and heels look better and don’t need blades, and I realized I’d actually been throwing money away for a long time. Silly. This is my regular nail salon, now. Thank you.Secret Spa Reviewer
