My friend was planning on getting a massage here and asked if I wanted to join her. I could definitely use a massage so I figured why not! It is a little difficult to find. We found parking on the street and walked. The elevator is tucked inside from the street. Past the parking attendant it will be on the right. Make sure you check the signs for which elevator to take since different sides go to certain floors. 

It's cute inside and very clean. The view is amazing. I was a little worried about the noise but even considering the traffic below it wasn't very noisy in the room. I could only hear the occasional motorcycle and the faint music playing in the background. 

I picked the aromatherapy (lavender), the type of massage (deep tissue), and the pressure (firm). Throughout the massage Jennifer checked to see if I was doing okay and told me that if it was too much to let her know. Probably because it was ticklish and I was squirming a little haha. But I left feeling very relaxed and after our massage we we're given ice cream and water. 

I would definitely come back again and recommend giving it a try especially given how reasonably priced it is!

With work being really stressful, I was in search of a good massage. My normal massage place was booked on a Saturday so I turned to Yelp and found Lava Massage & Day Spa. 

Located in Century Center on the corner of Kalakaua and Kapiolani, Lava Massage & Day Spa is a relatively new establishment that offers massages and a whole host of other services (such as facials and eyelash extensions). It is on the 25th floor corner unit, with a great view of Waikiki and the Ala Wai (as pretty as that can be). Parking is in a couple reserved stalls on the 3rd floor. Make sure to ask for the parking pass from the attendant when you enter. It is usually $2 for your visit when you leave.

The decor of the spa is really nice. It has been recently renovated with new flooring, paint and decorations. It is really nice and certainly adds to the relaxing environment. Kudos to being VERY clean.

I have had the 60-minute aromatherapy and deep tissue massage from Christina, who is the owner. She comes from a family of masseuses and even though she is petite, she knows how to apply firm pressure to get the serious knots I have in my shoulders and neck out.
Christina has built a beautiful spa and has the customer service and attention to detail that really shows how she is striving to be a successful, young entrepreneur.  

Extra star for being so responsive to Yelp messages, which I used the first time I booked my appointment. Plus, they have a great loyalty program. For every time you visit and do a treatment over $55, you get a star. When you hit 10 stars, you get a free treatment valued at $60. What's not to like about that?

I was visiting Honolulu after a horrible lash experience prior to leaving the mainland. I made the mistake of being impulsive and not being able to see the awesome lash stylist I normally go to, I had a lash fill by an inexperienced person at a nail salon. The lashes were thick, stiff and were glued clumped together unprofessionally. My eyelids actually hurt each time I blinked. 

While I was still in midflight, I did some research on Yelp and found that Christina was certified and trained by Xtreme Lashes. Upon landing in Honolulu, Christina was quick to respond with my urgent request for an appointment.

I needed to have all the prior lash extensions removed. Christina was mindful to keep my natural lashes from further damage. She did a expert job to disguise the gaps where I lost my natural lashes. 

After a full lash set, my lashes look absolutely beautiful. It has been two weeks, I am back home and my lashes are still soft, full and glamorous. I know when I return to my lash stylist next week, she will not be as upset with me since Christina saved my lashes!
Mahalo, Christina!

GO HERE!!! I'm visiting from California and decided to book a facial to end my trip. Man, it was needed. It's been a week of going non stop and awesome hikes, but my skin and body were tired! 

Christina is amazing. When I decided to book the facial, I messaged her on yelp to make an appointment and she got back to me in 2 minutes and we had a plan. She also sent me a reminder. She is so professional and sweet!

The environment of this place is awesome. It looks modern and well designed, with rooms devoted to facials and massage. My friend and I got the basic 50 minute facial package. Not only did we get facials included, but they also massaged our arms, legs, and feet. The facial was just what I needed, and they used amazing and gentle products. My skin felt amazing and is now glowing! I love this place, the staff was so friendly and great at what they do, and they strive to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Plus, according to my research, the facials are cheaper here than other places in the area. 

Thank you, thank you! I had an amazing experience and will return if I come back to Hawaii soon :)
