have tried numerous manicurists in west hollywood; Amber at ole henriksen is by far the best; she is a little more expensive than the walk in type of place but she is well worth the extra; also like the general ambiance of the spa more

The Facial was Heavenly! 9/18/2010

Ok, this was an absolute treat for my face! This Spa is at Sunset Plaza. I have a really 'girly' co-worker who always looks great from head to toe & her skin is so smooth..she referred me to her facialist, Tiffany at this spa and Im so glad I followed through and went. Tiffany is just a master at what she hour later, my skin felt clean, it looked fabulous, and I felt relaxed, thanks to her great neck and shoulder massage. Ill will be returning. more

Awesome Spa! Great For Birthdays! 2/11/2010

I went here with my mom for my 25th birthday. We had the combo hot stone/Swedish massage and the 6 step treatment. It was awesome. Everyone was super nice and the treatments were amazing. I loved the 6 rain shower heads that poured down on you on the treatment table. Also, because it was my birthday I got a free hydrotherapy soak! It's a splurge, but a really great one! Pros: Really nice staff, lovely treatment rooms Cons: Well, it isn't cheap, unfortunately more

Great Facials, great staff 3/28/2008

I had a really great experience going to Ole Henriksen. When you walk in the girls at the front desk welcome you with big smiles showing you into the lobby. They served you African Red Tea while you wait for your facialist. I had my facial with Maki far one of the best facial I have had. She was very warm and friendly and she paid alot of attention to detail very good at extractions something I really needed. She was very helpful as well with any questions on the products that she was using on me. I highly recommend this place the staff is amazing and the girls at the front desk are beautiful. I cant wait to make my next appoitment. Pros: easy parking, great service, great staff more

The facials are fabulous 12/20/2007

I have had many facials in my life, and this is by far the best ever. They have such cool machines, things for anti aging, acne treatments. I have been to almost every facialist at ole henriksen, they are all good, but recently I went to David Williams, and he is by far the best. He is so warm and friendly, and does lots of extractions which I needed. David also does alot of neck and shoulder massage in his facials as well. I would definetly recomend this spa to anyone, parking is easy, friendly staff, and well trained therapist. Pros: easy parking, friendly staff, talented therapist Cons: none more

Best Facial and Massage 12/11/2007

Wow, I just recieved the best facial and Massage by David. What I loved about the facial is that David is very detailed, does lots of extractions, and also incorporates alot of massage in his facial. I would defenetly recomend booking the purifying facial and a deep tissue massage with him, you won't be dissapointed. Pros: easy parking, great treatments Cons: none more

Not impressed 8/25/2007

I scheduled a facial and Swedish message. The message I had was very uncomfortable and actually painful. The masseuse I had was awful and acted like he could care less. The facial was not great either. The Esthetician was very cold and unfriendly. Prices are average. Pros: easy parking, free products Cons: unfriendly staff, if you are not an A-lister they treat you as such more


There are many places to get a massage in LA. None are better than Ole Henriksen Face & Body Spa. The staff is young and energetic, willing to help you, and they greet you with smiles. The atmosphere is one that puts you in such a calm place. The aroma therapy only adds to the tranquil surroundings. They pamper you and let you relax after the massage in a glorious steam room. There is no pressure to rush you out. I have been going now for over a year and will be treating my sisters, when they next visit, to an hour with my massage therapist or to one of the fantasic facials. I recommend to anyone wanting the full experience of relaxation a massage at Ole Henriksen Face & Body Spa. It is well worth the money. more

The "Star" Treatment 2/24/2007

Just what the doctor ordered after a weary trip in from the East Coast! I was greeted with a very warm welcome and pampered from the moment I arrived. I delighted in the most relaxing "swedish massage" and it only got better as I moved on to continue my "day in the lap of "Hollywood" luxury"! I relaxed in their beautiful "relaxation room" and truly escaped to tranquility! The staff is user friendly and the service is beyond excellent! AND THE OSCAR GOES TO.................The Entire Team at the Ole Henriksen Face and Body Spa. Thank you for a perfect ending to a very weary travelers day! Pros: Pampering, excellent products, service ,ambiance more

Best spa I've been to!! 2/24/2007

I go to spas all around the world - this is by far my new favorite!! Everyone was so nice and seemed very helpful. The spa is incredibly beautiful, I felt comfortable and pampered as soon as I walked in. I steamed then had a private soak - luxurious! I even got to relax in their so zen Meditation Room. All of this before my treatments!! I highly recommend the Purifying facial and the African Red Tea treatment - I'm telling all my friends. Outstanding! Thank you for such a fantastic experience - I can't wait to come back!! Pros: Service, Luxury, Ambiance more

GR8 Treatment!!! 2/24/2007

This is exactly what I needed!! I've been travelling on biz and used a Xmas Gift Certif. and my treatments were fabulous! The setting is intimate and heard several Hollywood faces were there during the week getting ready for the Oscars so my expectations were pretty high. I had a facial and massage but started with a soak which really relaxed me for the treatments. Overall: really fabulous! Really liked the staff - the spa is upscale without being uppity. Can't wait to go back! Pros: gr8 atmosphere + service, best treatments I've every had, easy parking more

Stay away! 1/21/2007

I've been going to this spa since 2000 and have had great experiences as far as the facials and massages. However, just this past week when I was there for both I had a diamond necklace stolen out of the locker room. I realized shortly after I left that it was missing and called immediately. The woman that answered the phone said she was too busy to help me. I called again 10 minutes later - same response. Finally I said I was on my way back so she then looked and said she didn't see it anywhere. Nice attitude. I went back and searched myself - only 2 hours after I left. Nothing there - no other clients, hardly any staff, and no necklace. I wonder what she was so busy with? She was reading a magazine when I got there. The next day I called and spoke to the manager who wasn't there the day prior and offered a reward for the return of my neckace. She said she'd look into it and speak with everyone, but I never heard back from her. I called the next day and asked if anything had turned up, but was told nothing had been turned in. I asked the woman who answered the phone if she was told about the reward and she said, 'um?' yeah. So finally on my last day in LA I went back in to the spa and spoke with the manager and another helpful receptionist. They clearly didn't do anything to find it. And they didn't care at all. I ended up filing a police report and the officer said it was grand theft since there were so few people in the spa and it happened in such a short period. I don't want to accuse anyone of anything, but something's not right. And beyond that, the attitude of the staff was appalling. There are so many places in LA to have a massage/facial/whatever. Don't waste your money on one where the staff gladly take your money (over $250 in my case) and then treat you like you don't exist when something goes wrong. Cons: Staff Attitudes, Watch your belongings more

Best Facial by far 12/14/2006

This spa is so nice and relaxing. I started off with a steam, then waited in this peaceful meditation room for my facialist. David came to great me. WOW he gave me an awesome facial. He was great with extractions, an awesome neck and shoulder massage. David was great in recomending some products for my skin, but no pressure to buy anything. I will definetly be back. Pros: easy parking, great prices, lots of amenities Cons: none more

Your experience will vary by facialist/masseuse 12/1/2006

I had been on the road for a few weeks and was in need of a facial. My sister, who's somewhat of a regular here, recommended that we go together and I brought along some friends. Overall, I had a great facial and my complaints are minor: I like serious extractions and my facialist didn't do as thorough of an extraction as I would have liked. Also, there was one zit that she popped that I could have done a better job and wouldn't have left a scar. It was very, very slight and nothing I haven't done or other facialists have and it goes away after a few days and it's barely visible, but still... The whole experience lasted an hour (not 1 h 15 min as advertised, but I was also about 10 min. late) and there was no natural brush exfoliation and skin analysis was perfunctory, though she asked all the right questions. Still, I got a great neck, shoulder, chest, upper back and arm massages. To be fair, she did complement my skin and said I was doing right things to take care of it (and no pressure at all to buy their products) but all facialists tell me that as they skimp on extractions! My sister & one friend (a spa virgin) had good facials as well but both of them did not get skin analysis and no neck, chest, and shoulder massages as advertised. My friend's face could have used more extractions because part of her face that didn't need so much extractions looked fabulous. She didn't really like her facialist, though, because she said that she made her feel uncomfortable a few times. My other friend got a facial & massage & liked them both but didn't love them. All of our 1 hr 15 min. facials lasted only an hour; ironically, the 1 hour massage was the only one that was for 1 hr 15 min. I would recommend this place--my skin is still glowing after 2 weeks and for the first time ever, I have zero blackheads on my nose. And I liked that there was no mask residue hiding in my hairline and around the nose, which happens frequently. Pros: Free Parking! more

How did it get the high rating? 11/5/2006

Based on the Citysearch rating, i decided to visit the spa with a good friend during my weekend trip to LA from SF. my appointment was at 11AM. first my esthetician was 10 min late. and she did not ask me ANY questions about my skin condition. she went on assuming that i had dry skin (though i have combination). although normally i prefer them not to be chatty during my facials, she did not bother to even mention what she was applying on my skin. there was no shoulder/chest massage and the facial was 1 hour long, not 1 hour and 15 minutes as described on the website menu. when i asked the receiptionist about the time, she said, "we give our clients 15 min in case they are late." if that is the case, you CANNOT advertise it as a 1&1/4 hour service! especially when i was on time and my esthetician was late. and on the website it also says the facial is "customized" to the individual's skin... with NO questions asked about my skin, how did she determine what to use on me?? by far the most disappointing facial i have ever had. Pros: free parking? Cons: false advertising, no communication with customers, rushed service more

Fabulous 4/17/2006

I visited the spa over the Easter weekend from the Bay Area with my best friend. We both had the 6 Step Body Treatment and absolutely LOVED it. The Tropical Rain Rinse, seaweed body wrap, and massage were fantastic and a great value. After the treatment, we went next door to Clafoutis and had brunch on their patio, which was also a treat. Pros: Nice Staff, Great Location Cons: No Communal Jacuzzi, Small Changing Room more

Great birthday present. 1/20/2006

My friends got me a gift certificate for a "princess treatment" for my birthday. I couldn't have been happier with the massage and the cucumber honey scrub. It was amazing. Well worth the money. more

The best Facial I ever had! 1/10/2006

Wow this place is awesome, very zenlike, and relaxing. David Williams was my facialist and he was awesome, the best, and I have recieved many facials before. Before my facial I went for a steam, it felt wonderful with the lavender aromotherapy. This is the place to go if you want to be pampered for sure, and you may also run into to a celebrity while your there. Pros: Easy parking, relaxing, friendly staff Cons: none more

Not a spa experience 10/27/2005

I went to this spa after reading the great reviews on this site. However, the service and spa experience were awful. I expected to have a spa experience - changing into a robe, using the steam room, etc. - but it didn't happen. I had to change in the smallest treatment room I've ever seen and was told to keep my jeans on during my hour long facial. How uncomfortable! Don't go to this spa if you want to be pampered and have a relaxing spa treatment. Pros: not crowded, good parking, decent facial Cons: not a spa experience, bad service more

pure bliss! 7/13/2004

I've never had a spa treatment before, so I decided to have one at Ole Henriksen, which has a stellar reputation among nearly all the people that I've spoken to. Parking is a breeze in the Sunset Plaza lot (which is free!) and the reception area is pleasant. Briony did my Honey-Cucumber Total Body Treatment, which was divine. Everything smelled good enough to eat - it's all pure and whole. Briony was friendly, super sweet, and absolutely fantastic. I thought that I got a lot for the price. The facilities are well-appointed and comfortable, and everything is relaxed, which is how it should be. I would definitely go back for more. Pros: easy parking, relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices more

Owner Message

  • The most indulgent, innovative, and unsurpassed treatments found anywhere in the world. Experience world class service with our highly trained team of service providers. Experience the difference.


  • The Scene
    Follow the Shoji-screened walls to private treatment rooms and let the pampering begin. Forget about an appointment with the eponymous owner--there is a two-and-a-half-year wait list, and cancellations are rare. His staffers, however, are more than up to the task of carrying out therapeutic face and body treatments. Ashley Judd and Charlize Theron are regulars and it's rumored that Sylvester Stallone won't leave home without Henriksen's line of skin products.

    The Goods
    The signature facial blends serious complexion care (deep-pore evacuation and lymphatic drainage therapy) with an indulgent neck and muscle massage. Body treatments range from a basic Swedish massage to a six-step session that includes a sea mineral scrub, tropical rain rinse and custom-blended body mask. For a quick escape, climb into the muscle-relaxing jet tub and meditate along a candlelit wall for 20 minutes.
