From Our Members:
Date: July 2016. Submitted by: : Abby B. Description: The Carmel Forest Spa truly exceeded my expectations. Carved into a mountain and surrounded by nature, I experienced real serenity on my visit. The hotel itself was incredibly clean, and I could tell how much thought there was put into making the guests feel like they were at an exclusive location. The food was awesome and I loved that it never felt crowded in the restaurant. 
The only part of the hotel that I wasn't crazy about was the room itself, we paid more for a Tzameret but I can't imagine that it was very different from the lower-priced rooms. We did have a semi-private balcony, but we didn't spend a lot of time there.
I will definitely be revisiting the Carmel Forest Spa, and have highly recommended it to friends and family. 

Date: November, 2015. From: Richard and Leah Z., Comment: We had a wonderful time at the resort.
As expected the food was plentiful, gourmet and excellently presented. As a matter of fact at my first meal (dinner) I ordered a lamb dish which was a mistake on the menu and was not available. I ordered an alternate, which was delicious. The head staff was so apologetic that the chef put together a special dish for me alone, in addition to my my chosen dish, which was out of this world. After all that they still gave my wife and I two glasses of wine on the house.
We requested and were given a Tzameret room on the third floor, with excellent views. I did not use the balcony as much as I would have liked, just because there are so many other beautiful areas to sit.
The spa treatments were very nice, my wife especially enjoyed her facial with Iris. The spa area itself is a bit limited and some spas that we have been to in the US are more elegant and larger. The indoor pool area is top rate with plenty of indoor and outdoor lounges available. The quiet solarium area was also a nice alternative.
We checked out of the room at the recommended time, although after packing our luggage in the car, we used the facilities for a few more hours until we had to move on.
I would highly recommend the hotel, although it is pricey and a bit difficult to get to (we ended up driving up the mountain in the dark).
Thank you for your help with our reservations.

Date: October 2015. From Shalom Alexander Comment: We had a wonderful time at Carmel Forest Spa Resort. We thought the dinner might be the best meal we've ever eaten in our lives -- the variety of salads and fresh foods was incredible. The entire spa was beautiful and quiet. We went on wonderful and peaceful walks in the forest. The deal provided through eLuna made the hotel dramatically more affordable than it was on the hotel website, and we would strongly encourage everyone to go to the hotel through eLuna.

Date: October 28, 2015. From: Mark C., Comment: Hi Ruth.  Roberta and I very much enjoyed our "mini vacation" at the Carmel Forest Spa.  The ambiance and accommodations were excellent, as usual, and we found that upgrading to a room with a balcony was well worth it.  The spa treatments were first class and the food was plentiful and up to our high expectations.  We look forward to our next visit to the Carmel Spa.

Just came back from the Carmel Forest Spa with my sister from St. Louis and my mom. It was worth every agora!!! The room was perfect for our needs, the classes were fun, the ambience, the silence, the FOOD- taste and presentation, and quantity... We enjoyed both an incredibly relaxing and exhilarating 2 days and can't wait to go back again...Thanks for all your
help....Tamar Q., July 2006
