Raya Spa

★★★★★
Raya Day Spa (since 1982) is by far one of the most luxurious and affordable Day Spa in Los Angeles. However, it is not only modern architecture, its luxurious facilities, location, advanced equipment, use of the latest technology, or its size (totally 26 treatment rooms) that makes it great. It is without a doubt Raya Spa’s exceptional and affordable European skin care treatments, exclusive and effective Raya's Brand skin care products and, most importantly, Raya’s amazing staff of dedicated, licensed, and expertly trained professionals: 21 exceptional aestheticians - facial and waxing specialists, 5 excellent massage therapists, 5 outstanding front desk assistants, 2 dedicated full time on-site cleaning, maintenance and spa attendants.

This is the first time I rate anything or anyone but the service and attention at RAYA is so outstanding that I wanted to take the time to support this fantastic place. I have had facials and eyebrow shaping done here. It's wonderful to find a beautiful and clean place that does things by the book. It has been very difficult to find a reputable salon . I was tired of getting my facials done or eyebrows waxed in someone's " room" or Garage. I was looking for cleanliness, knowledge, professionalism, kindness, & attention. I have found it all here. And never once have I been rushed through any treatment. Unlike most other salons, they actually custom make all their own products in their own lab. I looked them up on line. I look forward to trying everything Raya Spa has to offer. They found a loyal customer in me.

I love this place! I started getting facials at Raya Taver back in 1991 and here we are 17 years later and I drive from the South Bay to the La Cienega spa. The staff is so friendly and the facials are unbeatable. They are so thorough with extractions yet my face doesn't look like a war zone when I leave. The products are terrific - I won't use anything else on my skin and I love all the new stuff like the Brightening Serum..great stuff.

There is a good reason that most everyone raves about Raya Spa (there are always a few weirdos that don't get it when a great thing is right in front of them). I have discovered the secret to awesome skin: A Real European Facial. Here you are getting a facial that actually does something. If you have had a facial that goes like this: Someone gently spreads some goo on you, swirled it around, washed it off, put some cucumbers on your eyes and rubbed your shoulders, then you just got ripped off (probably for $100+). A real facial means you leave feeling a little "worked on" from the cleaning and exfoliating, but a few days later your skin glows, it feels younger, softer and unmistakably fresh. When you feel this way, then you know you got your facial at Raya. I have had a standing appointment for 2 years and my skin is flawless. Plus the place is gorgeous, immaculate and the pricing is very kind, especially helpful now that the cost of gas is absurd. Definitely a 5 star review by me (and about a dozen friends of mine are regulars too)

Raya is my best place to go for waxing or facials. I have been to many salons over the past 7 years in the LA area, and I can say - without a doubt - that Raya is the best. They are professional, always on time, courteous, and most of all, they are great at what they do.

In addition, the ladies at reception are fantastic - friendly, helpful, and courteous.

I recommend Raya to anyone looking for a great experience with waxing or facials.

My husband and I have used Raya's wonderful day spa for over eight years. The staff is attentive and treat us like family. We both enjoy their facials and massages on a regular basis.
I made an appointment for brow and lip wax and was not disappointed at all. That was the best lip and brow wax I have ever had. My husband loves the hot stone massage. He goes more often then I do. We have never been pressured to buy products or packages.

Girlfriend what you smokin? Don't you know that RAYA is the BEST Place in the West Coast for Facials and Waxing. Are you sure you were at Raya, cause everyone who's been knows that they use disposable individual containers and applicators for waxing, this is one of the Only places that dont Double Dip. Plus, I've been waxing bikini for years and Tanya is great, fast and you are in an out in 15-20 min for a full leg and bikini. If you want a relaxing long experience, get a massage. Waxing should be fast, clean and no-nonsense. You must be new to waxing. Shop around, and you'll see youll be back to Raya for your waxing!!!

I have had many facials from many different estheticians over the past 8 years and Raya is as good as it gets for me. They are very knowledgeable about skin and know what to do to get it in tip-top shape. Raya is the best! I simply won't go anywhere else for a facial. After a visit to Raya's, I feel as though my complexion is glowing! They do a fantastic job of cleaning up blackheads, whiteheads and all other pore cloggers. You must experience their facials for yourself. I highly recommend adding on the glycolic peel to the regular facial to give your skin that extra pop. Prices are also very reasonable and the spa is beautiful.

Firstly, let me say that I have been going to Raya for seven years and always loved it, particularly for the good value.

But a few years ago I noticed that during my facials, the "face mask" time was getting longer and longer. It used to be ten minutes, but had increased to twenty minutes, sometimes longer.

The last time I went to Raya, my therapist raced through the first part of my facial, slapped on the face mask and excused herself. She was gone THIRTY FIVE minutes. I was lying on the bed wondering if she was ever coming back. It was ridiculous.

When my therapist returned, I was obviously upset and asked where she had been. She told me that it was the spa policy to double book therapists to do a waxing or other short procedure while facial clients are having their face masks. Problem is that the waxing clients are sometimes late, or take longer than expected, so the facial customers have to wait.

My therapist apologized and said that she would make up the time for me, but guess what? She didn't. She removed the face mask and was gone.

So my one hour facial was only 25 minutes - a far cry from the one hour that I paid for.

It is my opinion that if you are paying for the services of a beauty therapist for one hour, that is what you should get. I am not paying good money for my therapist to go and give someone a Brazilian wax.

I will never give Raya salon my business again, nor will I ever recommend them. They are greedy and sneaky, double booking their therapists. Sure, their prices are low, but you get what you pay for, a one hour facial is now less than 25 minutes.

Ok Ive been to a few different places to get Brazililans.
I have to say my waxer was pretty fantastic. She was so FAST, i must have been out of there in 7 minutues. Other places have taken much longer sometimes 20, sometimes even 40 min. She made me feel totally relaxed.

Only bad thing about this place....the fact that they dump baby powder all over my crotch after its done instead of taking the time to remove leftover wax bits or finishing my entire area with a soothing oil or lotion or anything .

but regardless, it was pretty painless and now im silky smooth. oh and did i mention its only $39? um yes. cheapest ive found so far

Only bad thing about this place....the fact that they dump baby powder all over my crotch after its done instead of taking the time to remove leftover wax bits or finishing my entire area with a soothing oil or lotion or anything .

but regardless, it was pretty painless and now im silky smooth. oh and did i mention its only $39? um yes. cheapest ive found so far

Pros: quick, efficient, pretty painless

Cons: thoroughness

.

I have been coming to this place for years for waxing and facials. I have not found a place like this anywhere else. Not only are the prices great, but the women work very fast and do a great job. The wax they use is also the best I had, it does not stick to the skin and everything else afterwards. I have been to a few different Russian speaking women there and they are all great, but the one I stuck to is LENA. She is the best and has a great personality. I have also brought all of my family and friends here and they all love it. Every time my females come to LA I have to take them to Raya for a treatment and although I never got a massage here my friend who did can not stop talking about it and said it was the best massage she ever received! I beleive her masseuse was Olga.
Come and chek it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
