Bliss Spa With a very central location on Street 240, Bliss is a firm favourite among expats, thanks to the beautiful, restful elegance of the setting, the supreme professionalism of the staff and the high quality of their products. Pricier than other spas, yet there is not one occasion where we have not felt that this is entirely worth it. They offer a full range of spa services, with facials at $48 to $58, pedicures and manicures for $10-20, waxing from $6 to $30, scrubs and wraps for $26 and $30 respectively and massages starting at $26. They also offer a $55 per person “Bliss night package” which includes a 60 minute massage, a set menu of snacks and canapés, two glasses of wine per guest and the use of their lovely premises for just your group. In high season making a booking is a good idea. Highly recommended.
