All reviews seem positive

Great Experience! 10/24/2011

I have had a few services at Adara and I always feel special and that I am in the hands of true professionals in their field. Adara just added Derrick Jones as a massage therapist. He has excellent training and focused on the type of massage to help my particular issues. Very professional, very good experience. I'll be back. This spa is not run by people who love what they do! more

My favorite spa 6/7/2011

I visit several spas in the Durham/Raleigh/Cary areas, and Adara Spa is hands down my favorite. The atmosphere is relaxing and cozy and the staff is outstanding. I've seen both Desiree and Sunny for waxing, and they do a wonderful job. Both are very good at keeping me relaxed during waxing, which doesn't hurt nearly as much as I thought it would. I recently had a massage from the Adara's new massage therapist, Lisa. She did a fabulous job. It was one of the best best massages I've ever had. I highly recommend Adara Spa. more


LCN recommended these ladies to me and they are THE BEST in town. I won't go anywhere else. Gel nails are the way. ta. go. I'll never go back to that fake plastic crap. When it comes to waxing, Sonny keeps a relaxed and comfortable environment... I was scared to death on getting my first brazilian, but Sonny was able to keep me calm. I never felt awkward or embarrassed. Extremely clean and very professional. It was quick and easy and I will definitely go back again and again. more

Great service and care 7/29/2010

I had my first brazilian wax over a month ago and became a returning customer here. Sunny does an amazing job and helps you feel comfortable. Just wanted to say 2 thumbs up for getting your waxing needs taken care of. more

Get your wax done here! 6/15/2010

I found this place through a Google search and am glad that I tried them out! I get Brazilians done with both Sunny and Tanisha and they are awesome! I love the flexibility and convenience of booking my appointments online. There is plenty of parking and the location is conveniently located near Wade Ave and St. Mary's Street. Also, Sunny and Tanisha use hard wax - something that I have not tried before but am now hooked! Waxes last longer and you are left with cleaner results. I have already referred two friends and both had great experiences as well. The staff are great and will make you feel comfortable, especially if it is your first wax or first wax in awhile. Pros: online reservations, professional and fun staff more

Adara Spa and Sunny are the Best! 4/21/2010

I recently went to Adara Spa for a Brazilian wax and it was a wonderful experience - I have already scheduled my next appointment! I saw Sunny for my waxing as she came highly recommended from a friend -- I can assure you that the hype about Sunny and Adara are true! Sunny was very friendly and immediately made me feel comfortable. As already noted by other reviews, she was quick with the waxing and did the more painful parts first! I will be recommending Adara Spa and Sunny to everyone I know! Thank you Sunny! Pros: Friendly, comfortable, quick more

Awesome Awesome Awesome 3/12/2010

So I had a Brazilian wax done yesterday and it was the best worst experience that I have ever had. Sunny was awesome, she accomodated my schedule which was awesome and she is so nice and made me feel so comfortable. The best part is it took all of 15 maybe 20 minutes and she did the most painful parts first which made the rest a breeze. There is nothing pleasant about a Brazilian but this was quick and I am very pleased with the results Pros: Love it more

Fantastic, Friendly Service 8/4/2009

I recently visited Sunny Miller for a male waxing. Since I was a bit apprehensive about the whole process, I emailed Sunny my list of concerns beforehand and she addressed each one perfectly. My experience was top notch and Sunny was patient, courteous, professional and funny. I'd recommend Sunny and Adara to anyone who is considering waxing for the 1st time! Pros: Courteous, Knowledgeable, Friendly staff Cons: None more

Great wax..very friendly/professional staff! 3/26/2009

I just got back from receiving a male Brazilian wax or as they call it a "boykini." It was my first one professionally done and i didnt have a single problem or complaint. Sunny did an awesome job through out the whole process. Desiree was not sure on how to perform Brazilians on guys so i was politely asked if i minded that she joined Sunny and I so that she could watch and learn. I said i didnt have a problem with it and think that it actually helped the experience because she could hold the fan. On top of all that i had called 30 minutes before hand and asked if there was any open appointments and Sunny gladly said that she had an opening at 1:30 so it worked out great. Cant wait to get home and show my wife! Pros: Professional, clean, location, online appointment booking Cons: place is small but that doenst mean anything.. more

Amanda fixed my home highlighting experiment, now I look polished and professional 3/5/2009

When I came into work on Monday I showed one of co-workers the botched highlighting job I had done using a store bought kit over the weekend. She immediately sat down at her computer to make me an appointment with Amanda, her hair stylist/colorist, for later in the week. I went into Adara with a pretty bad dye job and hair that was desperate for a good cut and style. Amanda was able to take care of both and I am now very pleased with the result and feel it's well worth the extra money over doing it myself and going to quicky / cheap walk-in chop shops. Ladies, leave these things up to the professionals! You?re worth it and the ladies at Adara will take good care of you. Amanda - thank you and I'll see you in 8 weeks :) Pros: Cozy and personable, not huge and corporate. The complimentary soda was a nice touch too! Cons: A little pricey compared to my normal store bought products and $10 hair's worth the extra $ if you can swing it more

bikini wax 3/4/2009

sunny was great! it was my first time getting wax in the nether-region so i was a little nervous but she put me at ease right away. There was never an uncomfortable moment and she was really professional. I will defiantly being going back again! more

Hidden Gem! 12/11/2008

I've been getting my hair cut by Amanda for 5 years. I followed her to Adara Spa, and love it! It is a great location, small and intimate, and everyone is really kind. Amanda has cut my hair, and done highlights. I always leave happy with the new 'do. Recently, I got brave and had my first bikini wax by Sunny, and continued with waxing throughout the summer. Sunny is wonderful at what she does. She puts you at ease, it really isn't that painful, and the results are terrific. And, you can make appointments online, which is so easy and convenient. Go to Adara Spa, you won't be disappointed! Pros: location, parking, staff, everything Cons: small waiting area more

ALL in One package 12/8/2008

OMG I have had the best experiences at this spa! They offer so many services that I don?t need to go any where else. Alyssa?s massages will put you to sleep and you wake up so refreshed! I bought Gift Certificates for my family to get the same great treatment. They are open everyday except Sunday and you can go online and make your reservation or call them. Most cohesive group of works I have ever met to ensure a relaxing atmosphere. Once you go there you won't go anywhere else! Pros: Great price for the services - call in appointments also Cons: Truly can't think of any more

One of the Best Kept Secrets in Raleigh 12/1/2008

All the ladies are top notch - especially Amanda P! Friendly, professional, trustworthy and talented! more

Sunny is the BEST! 11/27/2008

I've been to Adara Spa twice to receive a Brazilian wax by Sunny. From the moment I walk in, everyone is so wonderful. Sunny has always been very punctual and friendly. I've had a Brazilian wax before but it had been several years. So I was quite nervous. But Sunny put me completely at ease. The second time that I went in I was so much more relaxed. I can't imagine going to anyone else. And I live 30 miles away, but the drive is worth it! I also loved that I was able to easily set up an account to set up and change appointments online. I usually think of making an appointment (or changing it) after a place is closed. So this was perfect for me. I've told all my friends about Adara Spa and Sunny. If you've ever considered getting a Brazilian wax or anything else, ask for Sunny. She is amazing! Pros: Great location, wonderful staff that are caring and knowledgeable! Cons: Cannot think of any. more

Top Notch !!! 11/12/2008

In a frantic search for Raleigh's perfect waxing service, I stumbled upon the rave reviews of Adara Spa. My call was greeted with genuine courtesy, and they were extremely flexible with scheduling my appointment for the same day, even going so far as to take into consideration the distance I would be driving to make the appointment. When I got a bit turned around in the parking area, the same bright lady helped me find my way into the building, even answering the phone this time with my name; and extremely personal and hospitable touch. You can tell these ladies really want to make their clients feel special, even before you walk in the door. The facility is very clean, warm and inviting, with enough privacy for clients, and plenty of sunlight. I was greeted warmly by Sunny, who was apparently not only the kind woman on the other end of the phone, but the lady who would be providing my waxing service. Sunny was not only professional, she was extremely precise and also wanted my input as we went along with the removal. She was extremely accommodating. Her method of waxing is nothing like the painful strips I was used to ( and lived in fear of ) with my visits to other salons in the past. I have extremely sensitive skin and I have felt not the slightest bit of irritation or soreness since 10 minutes after leaving the appointment. Sunny really knows what she's doing; I highly recommend her to the woman who wants perfection, who insists upon high sanitation, who enjoys banter with an intelligent well travelled woman, and above all appreciates service with real working women, as opposed to the often times sterile, boring 2 dimensional providers at other salons. This place, and these ladies are top notch. I'm so tempted to purchase my girlfriends gift cards to this place for the holidays, and I very much look forward to returning. Pros: Friendly down to earth staff, warm cozy environment, amazing customer service more

What you need, they have. 7/30/2008

I love one-stop shopping. I can go to Adara and have Amanda get the knots out of my hair and then have Alyssa get the knots out of my back. They are both great at what they do - expert, professional, and very friendly. I always leave there feeling relaxed no matter how tense I go in. Pros: online appointment system, ample parking, friendly staff Cons: Crazy squirrel in the tree out back more

Friendly staff, great service, could you ask for more? Perhaps, but not find it in a better location!!! Near Cameron Village. How grand is that?? 7/13/2008

Hate your hair? Need to have your color re-done and dreading that Mrs. Munster or Barbie Doll look you currently maintain? You say, "Yes?" So you are looking for an honest hair stylist that will not steer you wrong? Amanda is the gal for you!! She helped me soften my image, yet kept an edginess to the cut more suiting my personality. You see, Amanda "reads" people very well, while still being kind. Further she is straight forward, yet funny. A hard combination to possess, much less discover! Yet there she is at that cute little Adara Spa. Honesty and strength of character mean a lot to me. Amanda has it all. In spades. So give yourself a treat: Go see a REAL stylist. Visit Amanda and tell her, "Roeger sent me!!!". You will find she has a great laugh as well! Pros: Easy to access, good parking. Flexible hours, friendly staff. Cons: Unfortunately , one still has to pay!!! (Just kidding). more

Awesome stone massage! 5/8/2008

I got the warm stone massage with Alyssa, and it was sooo relaxing! She is very friendly and professional, and put me right at ease. I had never gotten a stone massage before, and LOVED IT! It is highly recommended :) more

Two Thumbs Up! 4/14/2008

I have been to a lot of stylists in Raleigh. I never quite found what I was looking for, so I ended up doing my own hair for years. My long time friend recommended I go to Katherine. She has cut and colored my hair several times now. She listens to my wants and needs and I feel comfortable taking her recommendations. I would highly recommend visitng Katherine. She is a great stylist! more
