I was lucky enough to be the Spa Index Secret Spa Reviewer for 8 spas in San Diego which were nominated for Best Spas in San Diego. I visited these spas between May and September 2013.
On the summer day I visited Spa Velia in the Little Italy section of San Diego, I spent my early morning golfing on Coronado Island, and then I did some shopping at Horton Plaza. This left my shoulders and feet punishing me.
I arrived at the spa (which is tucked away in a business complex which wouldn’t outwardly give you any idea it has a beautiful spa inside) in the late afternoon for my appointment, and was ready for a massage for my tired muscles and aching feet.
I was given a tour of the facilities, the locker room, given a robe and invited to make sure of the steam and Swiss shower room. I prepared for my Deep Tissue Massage from Nadiyah, which was expertly rendered. After my treatment I enjoyed the heavenly Swiss Shower and steam room. The staff checked on my twice but were not intrusive.
Of all the spas I visited for our reviews, this was the best massage I received. Plus, I had a glass of champagne in my hand soon after I arrived. This will be my new go-to place for a massage.
