I highly recommend whether just visiting or live here year round! Thanks for a great experience!
10/10 recommend, my husband got me a gift card for Christmas and I had never heard of Seychelles before but I scheduled my hair and nail appointment and l left feeling like a million bucks, Rachel took care of my hair and Mandie did her thing with my nails, I let them both decide what to do with my hair and nails because it had been so long since I had done anything to both and they did not disappoint… have booked twice with mandie now and already have future bookings with both ❣️
I love that this salon gave me more of that "Spa Day" feel, which I really needed...I didn't feel like they were just trying to get done as quickly as they could to get the next person in, Mari did a great job and was very nice and attentive. They really moved at a graceful pace. I have been to many places to get my nails done, and this was by far the most relaxed I've been during a pedicure. I even added a facial after my pedicure while I was in the chair. Love.
Great salon and spa you can trust! So thankful to have this salon in Palmetto. Very clean, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the environment is welcoming. I regularly get facials (dermaplane/microneedling), gel toe pedicures (with art too), and hair color (with Rikoko color locking treatment). What’s nice is they’re never trying to up-sell you. Ask about the membership, it’s a great value.
Great service!!! I was so happy with my pedicure. The place is very clean and my technician Mari did a great job on my cuticles and nails prior to applying polish. I love that vegan & clean products are available for services and customer sale. The entire staff was very friendly. Superb atmosphere. This place will definitely be my go to nail salon whenever I visit Palmetto. A high 5 for sure!!!
I recently visited Seychelles Spa for a facial & Dermaplane with Robin Olivio. What a great experience! She took the time to explain what to expect before we got started and was extremely sensitive to me & my experience. She did a tremendous job and I left there feeling very relaxed. I would recommend her and her services to everyone o know. I will definitely be returning.
I LOVE Seychelles Spa!!! It's like hanging out with great friends every time I go. I have tried just about every service and have thoroughly enjoyed the pampering I receive for each one. I am a member and can't imagine going anywhere else. Thank you girls for all you do to make my experience wonderful and relaxing!!!
