What People Say
I’ve been a customer of Aqua Wellness for years at their Pacific Grove location. It’s no surprise to see their success spill over into opening a Carmel location. They created something really special in Pacific Grove and have surpassed that in what they’ve made in Carmel.
The massage rooms are comfortable and the decor is appealing. As far as the massage itself, I’ve been seeing Tricia for years, and she if by far the best therapist I’ve had. Very intuitive, with extensive knowledge of the human body and muscles. I had been through 5 therapists in the Monterey area before finding the perfect massage with Tricia.
The most unique thing about this new location is the relaxation room they’ve made downstairs. It has many comfy lounge chairs where they serve tea and let you unwind before or after your treatment. The premiere feature is the large cascading waterfall they built off to the side of the room. It truly emulates the sound of steady rain. Combine that with a perfect balance of lighting and darkness and you have coolest relaxation room that I’ve seen. It’s something that must be seen to appreciate.

Wonderful little spa close to everything in central Carmel. I had a wonderful one hour massage with Austin. He listened when I told him where my problem areas were, and focused on them with the perfect pressure. The relaxing room downstairs was a nice calming area before our treatments.

So I have had a lot of massages, it is my favorite thing to do once a month! But this by far was the very best massage of my life. I would even drive the 2.5 hours just to get this again it was that good. Lila was incredible she will be my go to girl from now on!!!! Love here and this place. Never been more relaxed. Mind and body blown away. Best day ever

Just visiting Carmel and I went in for a deep tissue massage to start my weekend of R&R and I’m very impressed with how good my massage was. I travel around the world and frequent different spas all the time and very few are as good as this place. I’m coming back the next chance I get. Thank you Aqua for starting my weekend out right.

What an awesome experience!
The spa is located in a small parking lot with a few other shops so we parked on the street. The owner Tricia was very friend along with her daughter who helped us out there. Hubs and I loved the spa itself.. Very quaint and had a nice relaxing vibe. We absolutely loved the extra large private candle-lit heated pool. We were able to float around and drink the champagne they offered us before going into our massages. We then headed upstairs for our couples massage. Kristine massaged my husband who has a shoulder injury. Kristine was great at avoiding the injured area but also applying enough pressure for a great massage. Tricia was my massage therapist also great and had a nice breathing pattern that helped me relax even more. They used warm towels to wrap our face and feet. Loved that!!! We will definitely be back!!!

My wife and I enjoyed a 90 minute couple’s massage at Aqua while in town over the Memorial Day weekend. She called and spoke with Tricia and was able to go “off menu” and set up a customized treatment just for us. It was incredible! Definitely would recommend.
*** A little tip- we were staying in Downtown Monterey during this visit. We walked down to Portola Plaza and rented Electric Bikes for the day which we rode to our appointment at Aqua (made climbing up the hill a breeze!). Afterwards, we explored Pacific Grove and made our way to Cannery Row for a late lunch. Great way to see the local area with a little adventure.
I LOVE THIS PLACE.
I found Tricia through a Groupon. I damaged my shoulders and my doctor recommended I get a deep tissue massage. Never having experienced one before, Tricia told me what to expect. She’s hilarious. She told me a story about how her daughter said her new business cards should read “Hate me now, Love me tomorrow”. If you haven’t had a deep tissue massage, it can be quite intense, but Tricia will remind you to relax and help you breathe through it.
I’ve been back several times now. The relaxation pool is amazing and they’ll customize the temperature to what you prefer. They provide towels, robes, and sandals to wear around. The treatment rooms are clean, very comfortable, and relaxing. The spa also has a little shopping area with great makeup. Definitely try the chapstick.
Destiny, Tricia’s daughter, works the front desk. She’s polite, helpful, and professional. They make you feel like one of the family. They are all really wonderful and friendly.
When you’re leaving, you get a square of dark chocolate!

Very nice spa! I’ve sampled the menu over a period of time. Tricia is an excellent massage therapist with very strong hands for deep tissue. Lila is a sweet and knowledgable esthetician with soft even energy. I’ve gotten facial and microdermabrasion and very pleased with results. They use all organic skin care. Ive also had body scrubs and wraps. The coconut guava wrap is amazing!! My favorite service is the shirodhara treatment for opening the third eye and promoting deep relaxation. It’s a warm oil slowly dripped in between eyes then they walk your limp noodle body to the sauna to veg out in complete bliss. It’s the ultimate escape!! Love love love. They also have a private warm soaking pool that’s chest deep you can lounge in full monty style.There is also massage they do in the pool called Watsu. I think I’ll try that…….but def with a swimsuit.
