Creepy, inappropriate male massage therapist. – What a shame to have to trash this place on line because I had a lovely massage with Tamara, and my two friends and I really enjoyed our platza session with Doryan. However, last night after her first massage with a male massage therapist, one of the two (female) friends I went with received two text messages from someone she didn't know saying how much he'd enjoyed "meeting" her and how much he wanted to see her again. When she texted to ask who he was, he said he was her massage therapist from Okeanos.
She was and is completely freaked out, not having had any sense that her therapist was looking to get a date from her as he gave her massage, having given no one at Okeanos permission to give out her cell phone number, and knowing that this totally inappropriate stranger had access to her home address.
My other friend and I spent the better part of the evening trying to make her feel safe and not physically violated and assuring her that we'd take action. Have notified Groupon, contacted the spa (haven't heard back yet) Needless to say, all of the relaxation we all felt after our time at Okeanos went down the drain, and our friend -- a very competent, confident, strong woman -- is really knocked sideways by this. Please do not give this place your business in the future.
great place, friendly service – a little weary as it was under ground level but felt instantly relieved when i entered the spa...friendly service--i think mostly russians/eastern european...had a male massage (last-min appt so no females were available) and he was GREAT...i was skeptical b/c i've never had a male working on me, but he proved to be better than most female masseuses i've had...applied pressure on my shoulder and upper back where i told him i was most tense....anyway, will go back and ask for him specifically though i'm sure others there are great as well...i think his name is Tiber, or Tiger...anyway, great spa, great sauna--the guy who manages the spa is really helpful as well--made sure everyone was comfortable in the sauna, that it wasn't too hot, etc. etc....so in short, highly recommend.
Great massages, very relaxing – Really loved this spa. Took my boyfriend and we enjoyed the relaxing sauna. We had our massages together at no extra price, and since we both went, it was 30% off! The massages themselves were great - perfect pressure, relaxing. I almost fell asleep it was so good (and that never happens).
at the end, they gave us a complimentary shot of vodka. how fun!
Amazing Russian Sports Massage – This place is GREAT. I love getting deep tissue massages and Im willing to pay for it especially if the person knows what they're doing. I've gone twice in the last month and had Ivan work me out both times. This guy was absolutely great, I left the place like someone beat me up (in a good way). He worked out every cramp and kink in my body and really had great technique. The saunas were clean, super HOT and the staff was extremely friendly. It's great if you work in midtown as its open till 10pm most of the week. As other people have said its a bit more expensive then other places but after you get the massage you wont give a damnn about the $$$. Highly recommended and ask for IVAN.

GREAT SPA FOR MEN – 8-27 - I had a billing error. Unfortunately, the owner was not present when we left the spa. It did take a while, but the owner contacted me directly and apologised for the incident. He was very professional and sincere regarding the matter. We did enjoy the services and would definitely visit the spa again. I say check your bill and ask for the owner if there are any problems. It's a great spa for men and they definitely delivered on their services. My husband loved the facial and massage. Said the steam room was one of the best he ever experienced.
Clean and well delivered! – Finally there's a real and clean bathhouse in the city. The saunas and massages, although more expensive than competition, are top flight. Limited food menu, but BYOB makes this place golden.
Sauna Heaven !!! – If you are into saunas/banyas than this place is for you. The place is by far the cleanest and hottest in the city. The massage was good, although on a pricey side for the deep tissue. The staff was courteous and attentive...sometimes a bit too attentive. If you frequent the city spas or bathhouses, I suggest you give this one a try.
yeahhh, its pretty cool – Ivan definitely be holdin it down at okeanos!!! His massages are no joke. If you like him, check out G spa at the gansevoort hotel down in the meatpacking district...the guy they got working there now....INTENSE bro. greatest massage of my life, i think his names's michael. just as good...if not better then homeboy!!!
Average! – It is a average place with average food and average service.I was told so many things about this place but it was not the place that i was expecting
