Look forward to my monthly makeover ( face and body). It just rejuvenates and relaxes me. Thanks , Mahala, Arigatoo, Kam sameda, etc.

Like everyone else who is suffering from acne, pimples and scars, I went to visit Helen's Haven hoping for a change and I loved it! Thanks to their love with skincare and their products (Lerosette, celluma, exfoliants), my face has been better and my confidence was back on (before I was so conscious with my pimples BUT NOT ANYMORE!). Karlyn and Helen is very nice and friendly and so is everyone else I wish I could give them 100 stars! I am so thankful that I found this Haven and I will certainly stick to them. <3 <3 <3

I was on Oahu from Kauai for medical reasons and I had made an appointment here (to treat myself!) I ended up having to take an earlier flight home and stopped by to see if they could possibly take me any earlier. They were able to accommodate me and were so gracious and kind about it. Great, positive atmosphere (not at all "hoity-toity") and very knowledgeable and well trained staff. I did the micro-needling and noticed a difference within a day. I'll be back for more. Helen even gave me some follow-up cream to take home in case I needed it, since I was going off island. I can't praise this place highly enough!

Excellent service in everything.

I was treated to Helen's Haven Signature Facial and Body Massage Combo. It was absolutely heavenly!! I started with Carlyn giving me the signature facial. I haven't had a facial for at least 2 years. I have to say it is one of the best facials I've had in a long time. Carlyn explained everything I was getting as she did it. She is very pleasant, welcoming and professional. I especially liked how she did the extractions. She did it in such a gentle way and no swelling or recurring pimples. My skin glowed after her treatment. My body massage with Linda was just as exceptional. She is so knowledgeable in massage therapy. Her massage was the icing on the cake. She worked extra hard on my neck and shoulders. She used warm stones to further relax my neck and shoulders, bliss! I could have easily fallen asleep it was that relaxing. Thank you Carlyn and Linda for making my first visit a memorable one. Looking forward to visiting again!!

It was an awesome experience! Both the facial and the massage was excellent!!! Would highly recommend to my friends and family!

Greatly appreciate massage with Linda, who finds and soothes tight muscles. Moving and feeling much better after my visit!

I have been seeing Karlyn for a few years now and she provides me with excellent service every time. Helen's Haven is a very relaxing place with wonderful staff. I only have one request (my second or third time) which could make the experience even nicer...Please provide your customers with a wider variety of spa music with itunes, spotify, etc. Mahalo!

Helen gave me an excellent facial today, with her usual experience and knowledge of all aspects of skin care. I will return soon! Thank you, Joann

I enjoyed my short time at Helen's Haven. I also liked learning about techniques that Karlyn shared with me regarding her profession. I could tell she truly loves her practice and her charming personality was an added plus to my experience. I actually felt like I was in a haven, secure, and comfortable. I am coming again for my first facial and I can't wait!! Thank you! I wish I had discovered this haven earlier since I was living just a couple miles away!!

Waterless pedicure - who knew it could be so wonderful?! Lauren did a great job, smoothing and soothing my feet! With the final touch of a great color, it was an experience I intent to do again and again! At the same time, Karlyn gave me a facial, steaming and cleaning my face, leaving me with moisturized, hydrated skin that is baby soft. Another great experience to be enjoyed again! Thank you for a relaxing visit!

I love everything about Helen's Haven. The treatment rooms are comfortable, the facials are refreshing and rejuvenating, and the massage therapy is second to none. I had my neck and shoulders manipulated in ways that nobody has ever done. I should make a standing appointment so I don't forget to pamper myself.

Valarie is so good at what she does and very good with customers. I would recommend her to all my friends, as is she does a lot of them already

The mini-facial by Karlyn was great! Always appreciate the information she gives on skincare.

as always tiffany was awesome

Love this place, Linda is the massage therapist I see and she is amazing!

Helen's Haven gives the most relaxing and professional facials. My skin looks and feels great. People comment on how good my skin looks all the time. Mahalo.

I had the pumpkin facial and pedicure. fabulous. I feel so pampered. There is nothing like escaping at Helen's Haven, I will be returning soon!

Thank you , thank you Lauren for my first pedicure experience. I have had positive comments from my pool friends. Looking forward to using other colors when I see you again.

Had a signature facial today and it was amazing! I enjoy not being pressured into buying products like at some other places. I felt like I was visiting with a friend. Also noticed the prayer box in the room and I love that idea!

My facial by Helen herself, was a terrific experience. It was my first facial even though I am, ahem, of advanced years. It was a relaxing 75 minutes, with arm and shoulder massages. My face was soft and smooth afterward, and there were hardly any signs I'd had extractions.

This is a gem of a spa - convenient location, superb services and friendly staff. I look forward to my mini spa getaways two miles from home. You will appreciate the high level quality of facial services at a reasonable cost.

Tiffany is the bomb diggity!

I have been going to Helen's Haven for over 15+years and I am constantly impressed by the excellent service and friendly staff. I am deeply grateful for Tiffany(therapist) who has a magnificent healing touch. I also "Thank you" to Christina, and Helen & Samantha(the best cared dog in the whole world!) for creating a joyful experience every time I visit. I recommend Helen's Haven to everyone!!

I am so happy that HH is so cooperative with my busy schedule. I hate to make appointments as I don't like to cancel should one of my clients ask me to jump. That's my life and HH makes room for me and the personal service and friendliness go a long way in my book.

Everyone is always pleasant and efficient.

My first visit for lip fillers was a year ago. I went back again this year because I felt confident that I would be satisfied and wouldn't have anything to worry about. My lips are fuller and turned up at the corners. I now look forward to putting on lipstick. Dr..... who worked on me is like an artist, she is very mindful about balance and natural-looks.

I enjoyed my services today with Karlyn. She is a true professional. Please consider having a sound system for greater selection of music. The same cd is played and repeated each time. It's the only amenity your salon is missing. Respectfully, Valerie Collins

My left shoulder and arm pain disappeared after Karlyn's massage..like magic. My face always feels smoother, firmer, and brighter after the facial.

Helen is very experienced at what she does, and a lovely person. A good place to spend some beauty time with quality experts.

Currently going to Helen's Haven every 2 months for the mini facial. Helen is very knowledgeable about skincare and always cheerful and pleasant. She's helped me take good care of my skin for years now. Highly recommended!

Their services are great. The employees and Helen are very nice. Whenever I step out of their shop I feel better and prettier than before. Will recommend to others!

If I could yell it from the rooftops......it would be something like "Helen's Haven is truly heaven on Earth! I always leave feeling like I'm 20 years younger and absolutely FABULOUS! I've been to other spas here and in the mainland and none has ever been as great and professional as Helen's. Love these women!!! Thank You!!

Great services & beauty products!

Always friendly and great service by every staff member. Very accomodating to my schedule. Love trying all of their services.So relaxing and effective.Love going to Helens Haven.

Helen's Haven has a friendly and relaxing atmosphere and Dr. Valerie AmMann was very knowledgeable. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.

It is always relaxing to be with Helen. I trust her judgment and expertise.

Thanks Helen, for letting me know about your new LED treatment. Last week I was told I look 16. You know I'm much older than that.

I love having a facial & massage! The rooms are so comfortable, soft music & aromatherapy add to the ambiance. I always feel great when I leave. Tiffany does a great job on both.

Great, great , great. Enjoyed my facial and also massage. Very relaxing and something to look forward to every month. Mahalo Helen and Tiffany.

I think Helen is the greatest. I trust her instincts and advice completely.

I always have a pleasant experience at HH . Helen, Dr. Valerie, and Christie are always so helpful and honest, plus they do a great job! It's so awesome to have high quality professionals in Kahala, and not have to go into town.

The workers are very nice and the rooms are very relaxing. I love how I got my facial extraction because its bearable. I will come back again and refer to friends.

Helen's Haven is the best. They are always so accommodating for my schedule and always do their best to find me an appointment that works for my busy schedule. They were also very understanding when I was running late for my appointment one time. Thank You Helen's Haven!

Dr. Valerie Ammaan is not only very professional at what she does but she also has a knack of making you feel like family! I wouldn't trust anyone but her to make me beautiful!

The whole experience at Helen's Haven from scheduling an appointment to payment is very customer friendly. The staff is amazing, and the facility is clean.

Relaxing facial and shoulder massage from Helen. My skin feel wonderful. I will be back for another facial soon. Mahalo.

I always enjoy my experience at Helen's Haven. I saw Dr. Valerie Ammann and had a great outcome. From my initial scheduling with Christie to my appointment, all went well. This is a great spa. Janet Watts

Always look forward to my facials and body message. Makes me feel so good and relaxed.

Helen's Haven is awesome!

Wonderful neck massage with Tiffany. Relieved intense pain in shoulder. So glad to be able to get in the same day the ache became a problem!

Excellent. Always.

Great job as always.

I always enjoy my time at Helen's Haven - from the friendly personnel to the time getting my treatment. I feel special and so pampered in my "alone time" that we all need. After my treatment, I always think my skin looks and feels better. Yea!!!!!

Helen is fabulous! I have become a regular at Helen's Haven and I love Helen's technique and her friendly conversation. The front desk staff is also very sweet and together they make the experience wonderful.

Always excellent service! Karlyn helps my skin look it's best--and she's friendly

Had a great signature facial with Ronnie. Face still feels wonderful, two days after my appointment. It is always nice to take a break with Helen's Have.

I always look forward to my monthly facials and massage. All I can say is thank you , thank you for making me feel great every time . See ya next month.

we LOVE ms Helen!

Always helpful & friendly. Tiffany gives awesome massages & facials. Thank you!

I was in a world of pain due to traveling for hours on a plane in to an international destination and Tiffany worked some magic to relieve the majority of my pain in less than 1 hour! She is a God-send! Thanks so much!

As always, my signature facial was wonderful. I love that it is a deep cleaning with extractions so my face feels and looks amazing when I am done BUT I also love that it ends with a wonderful neck/shoulder massage, giving me that complete relaxation time. The staff is always so great there! Thank you again~


Helen and her team are professionals, and they love their work. I have never experienced a less-than-fantastic session with any of her team. I love their mini-facials. The salon is nicely decorated, and it feels peaceful and relaxing. Her products are also very good. I have sensitive skin and am very careful about the products I use. Every product that Helen has recommended to me has been great.

5 stars!! Ronnie is always excellent!!!

HH always try to accommodate my busy schedule for same day. Another Pleasant experience with plenty of parking close to Kahala Mall.

I get the best skin treatments at Helens Haven. I have been coming to Helen's for years and it is a critical component of my skincare routine. No one can get my pores squeaky clean like the aestheticians here, they are meticulous, gentle and gracious. I never feel embarrassed about my icky pores, they are all such professionals and every treatment I've had at Helen's is wonderful. All the staff are friendly, helpful, and make you feel at home. Taking care of your skin is worth it!

The best! Services

My facial and foot reflexology with Tiffany was amazing. 2 hours of pure relaxation! Thanks to all of the staff at Helen's Haven for always being so pleasant and welcoming

Once again appreciated my massage with Linda, who has worked wonders on my sore, tight, knotted muscles. I may go in sore, but I leave relaxed and pain-free. Marvelous.

Roni is excellent. I never want my treatment to end. Everyone is welcoming and knowledgeable. I just need to come more often. Rating myself with a incomplete.

I think that Valerie is a great person who knows what she is doing.She is good in not pressuring her customers if she feels they do not need anything, because of her honesty I will keep coming back to Helen's Haven Aloha Kai

The best!!!!

Please tell Dr. Val that my eye appointment is scheduled for 3/30!

Perfect as always. Alice Robinson

Excellent atmosphere and friendly service.

Staff is so courteous and nice! Valerie is the best!!!

I'v been going to Dr. Amman for several years and I cannot recommend a better doctor! She is always honest and tell you what she believes will be best for you and not just try to sell you on a new treatment or product. Thank you, Dr. Amman!

Had a great Venus freeze treatment. Love the results!

Excellent service and all staff are very friendly . Carlyn is very gentle and pays attention to detail . I also had Botox treatment and the doctor provided several options and made me feel very comfortable . Thank you for the relaxing experience

Val is the BEST. My treatments with her have definitely done wonders for my skin. Mahalo to Val. Alice Robinson

I'm glad I finally got a Voluma fillers yesterday .. I feel like 5-10 years younger... It was a special of the month, so the price was reasonable. Dr. Val is very kind & generous too!

Helen's Haven is wonderful. Just visited and saw Dr. Val Ammann. I highly recommend her cosmetic skin improvements and her kindness.

Professional, but cozy & friendly too

HELEN, Hope you are feeling better.

Professional and great services!

Love your salon, the treatments, the service as well as your products. Everyone is fantastic at your Spa.

Excellent, courteous staff and knowledgable technicians! The best and I do refer when possible.

Everyone there is so wonderful. Val Ammann is outstanding. Helen is also wonderful and Christie is also great. Always clean, nice ambiance, well qualified staff. Highly recommended.

I do feel the treatment soften my wrinkles but was not pleased with all the small red spots it left on both of my cheeks. I am treating the red spots with a healing oil and they are improving so I assume they will fade away with time. Thanks for the opportunity to give my feedback. Brenda Cowan

As usual felt greaaat after the facial and massage. HAPPY EASTER TO ALL.

Outstanding service!!! I always enjoy coming to Helen's Haven, her spa smells wonderful and you always get treated special. Thank you Doc Val, your the best.

Made me feel like a new person.

Great service! Friendly ladies! Very relaxing

Thank you goes to karlyn for making me feel comfortable and for making the brazillian wax go smoothly (pun intended). She takes an uncomfortable situation and talks through it in order to be as efficient and comforting as possible Highly recommend this salon and this esthetician.

My skin takes a beating from life stress but is so much better after a facial at Helens Haven! All the staff are genuinely caring, friendly and make you feel at home...I would not go anywhere else for my skin care and extractions, they are the Best!

I melted away for half the afternoon! Always a great experience at Helen's Haven. I used to go to a Thai massage place and having a one stop MedSpa at Helen's Haven is sooo much better, refreshing from the smiles the intense gentleness and the aroma of minty goodness! Must check out a great facility thats been serving the island for over 20 years!!!

Makes me feel brand new. Look very much forward to my monthly , pamper myself day. Always feel great when it is over. Merry, merry Christmas.

Karlyn always goes above and beyond.

You are the BEST Alice Robinson

Helen's Haven is truly a spa haven and I'm hooked! I came in for an hour massage due to some horrible neck and shoulder pain. My massage therapist was professional, assessed my case and I felt like a different person walking out. I've already booked two massages since my initial visit and will continue to visit Helen's for other services in the future!

Excellent as always.

Absolutely fabulous treatments and products.

I gave the whole service 5 stars but if it was available it would have been 10 stars! Thanks Helen's Haven for beautifying me! I will be back for more!!!
