"Best spa experience I have ever had! Such a relaxing place."
Katie L. via Facebook

“I was attending a work related event and my daughter surprised me with a message. It was awesome. I have never felt so relaxed. I was so impressed I decided to ask if could schedule a pedicure. The staff was very helpful and scheduled me right away. I will definitely return. Wish I lived closer.”
Michelle C. via Facebook

“Excellent sauna and wet room. Therapists are excellent across the board. Best spa experience in Destin area.”

“Highly recommend this Spa. Not only do they have an amazing staff, but I've been going for years and they are always consistent. They make every guest feel special, from the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave.”

My wife and I came for a massage on our trip to the beach and were not disappointed! My wife got the mother-to-be massage and a pedicure. I got the Serenity by Design massage and enjoyed the amenities in the locker room. My wife loved the care and attention she was shown by every person who was involved. Each of our massages were great! The locker rooms offered a hot tub, steam room, showers and sauna which you could spend a great deal of time enjoying, before and after your massage. Overall, we were impressed with the staff, quality of the spa and value! Highly recommend!
"Fantastic Experience" liltony5 via TripAdvisor

Took a girls trip to The Hilton Sandestin over the weekend and spent the day at the Serenity Spa. When I say "the day," I literally mean the entire day. The spa has all amenities you could want- whirlpool, fitness center, sauna, steam, showers, and several different relaxation venues. One of them had a "zero gravity" space lined with zero gravity chairs, each separated with an optional privacy curtain. There was a lounge area with tables so lunch could be ordered in and enjoyed in the spa area. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and all of the service providers were well trained professionals. It was an excellent day and we look forward to returning!

I booked a half day at the spa and was so glad I did. I really enjoyed my massage! I also loved the mani/pedi I got. I have received so many compliments on it! Just wish I would have allowed myself more time to spend in the relaxation area.
"Relaxing Visit" Jennifer E. via TripAdvisor

Great experience! From the staff to the facilities, Serenity by the sea never disappoints. The best part is that any spa or salon service gives you access to spa amenities including sauna, whirlpool, steam room and lounge all day.

The staff was more than amazing!! Morning of my wedding, my girls (12 of them) and myself spent the day preparing here. The staff kept our schedules straight and timely. Our food orders were served right when they said they would be, and it was delicious. They treated me the bride so wonderfully, made sure they scheduled me a lunch break in between procedures. I want to do it again and again. Such a Stress Free day!! HA

This was one of my all time favorite spa experiences. I had the Mommy to be massage and a pedicure. Sherry did a wonderful job on my nails! The entire staff was friendly and super helpful. I will definitely be back on our next trip.
