About
Come and indulge in our 18,000-square-foot spa! Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is Mandara Spa’s newest location, the only one of its kind set in the verdant hills of North Carolina. Visitors of the resort will find an exotic Balinese inspired menu that features the professional Elemis spa-therapy brand for results-focused face and body treatments. As well as Mandara signatures such as the Balinese Massage and Balinese Body Scrub, Mandara Spa at Harrah’s Cherokee has created both a face and body treatment that infuses herbs from the Native American Pharmacopeia celebrating the native heritage of the resort. These exclusive services include the Lavender Healing Repair Facial which uses Lavender, a key healing herb used in Native American ceremonies to soothe, relax and restore, and the Juniper Berry and Algae Detox which uses Juniper Berries also used in Native American ceremonies to dispel negative energy and purify the environment. We urge you to try them both! Mandara Spa at Harrah’s Cherokee also offers specific treatments and packages for men, including the Mountain Escape for Men, promising a dose of euphoria with a traditional Deep Tissue Massage followed by an Elemis Skin IQ for Men Facial. Couples can also share the experience and indulge in the Sacred Feather Ritual for Two inclusive of a massage for each while laying side by side, a bathing ritual in a large hydrotherapy bath, and champagne with chocolate treats. Guests for both spa and salon services check in at the main spa reception located on the second floor. Also on the second floor is the salon, which offers guests a complete hair and nail treatment menu, featuring a nail bar, pedicure thrones, and styling stations. To enter the spa’s quiet zone, guests will take the spa elevator down to the first floor men’s and women’s changing rooms equipped with showers, amenities, lockers and robes before entering wet areas with sauna and Jacuzzi pool. Also featured is a co-ed relaxation lounge where guests can prepare for their treatments creek side, as well as two couple suites, complete with a large hydrotherapy bath that is shared by both the suites.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Therapists are great. Prices and front desk / scheduling completely suck. Worst service for such an overpriced treatment

I had 2 treatments today. My massage was relaxing and my therapist was very knowledgeable and gave me tip on things to do at home.
I also had a facial which was perfect.
Kudos to Sarah and Nora! Will go again next time I’m here.

The signature facial with Michelle was amazing and it was so good for my skin. I was disappointed in the massage but it was overall a good experience

The variety in the way the massage therapist were using their hands was non existent. Myself and my husband had similar experiences with them just doing the same thing over and over and over. I have never had a massage where I was praying for it to hurry up and be over. Never once did I get the relaxing cold chills you get when the massage is doing its job. I don’t like hard pressure and even this was too easy for me and my husband was supposed to be a deep tissue massage and it was far from that. Maybe we both got new therapists but for what you pay for the service you would think they would make sure their therapists were capable. My husband is seven star status at the casino and we are over there two to three weekends out of the month and would potentially use this spa on a regular basis but not after what we experienced. The spa is clean, the staff are nice but the most important part was extremely lacking. There is also hydrotherapy you can take advantage of and we were not informed of this prior to our visit either so we didn’t get to use that either because I was not aware to bring a bathing suit. The rest of our evening was ruined yesterday just being excited for the massage only to be let down and also knowing we spent over $500 total for something that if we had known it was going to be the way it was in advance we would have most definitely skipped.

What a wonderful afternoon spa experience. It started with the ladies upstairs that checked me in and helped me find my way to the spa downstairs and the start of my relaxation. The locker room was spacious and beautiful with private lockers to secure belongings. The robes provided are luxurious and comfy and make you feel right at home. The relaxation room is beautiful and truly puts you in a different frame of mind. The 80 minute deep tissue massage was money well spent. Matt did a fantastic job, asking for feedback but leaving plenty of quiet time to enjoy the experience. I can not wait to return and hope that the other amenities will be available very soon. What a great way to spend a chilly afternoon in Cherokee.

I love Mandara Spa. I have been several times had a variety of services they offer and used the entire facility. Hair, pedicure, massage, couples massage. This is one place you don't want to miss. At my most recent visit, the young lady came to get me for my appointment and she remembered me from months ago when a friend and I came! Here is a shout out for Holly!!! She is very personable, asks and cares that you are getting what you want. She did a great job on my hair, better than my local person! If I lived locally I would come here regularly!!!!

Highly recommend a spa day if visiting here. It is relaxing. The stone heated massage chairs are the bomb. My husband & I did a couples massage and it was so relaxing and a great way to spend the day together.
