Two Weeks Later, Pedicure still going strong – a couple weeks ago i booked a mani pedi that i had bought on one of those deal websites. the day of my appointment the manicurist was running behind and the man at the front desk was really accommodating and apologetic because of it. everyone who worked there was really friendly and conversational. i also think that the manicurist did a great job. it was soothing and relaxing, and my nails looked great. even now, two weeks later, my pedicure is unchipped and as shiny as new, and i wear open toed sandals everywhere. i highly recommend this place.
just go – and see for yourself. you will not be sorry.
i also used their gift cards, and the people i have given them to shared wonderful impressions
Best facial and great products to go along with it... – I received many facials in the past but they always left me with a red face and disappointing results. Little did I know, I actually had nothing to worry about at Iguazu day Spa because the woman doing my facial knew exactly what she was doing and used excellent products meanwhile giving me useful tips on how to treat my skin on a daily basis. After 60 minute of relaxation including a neck, arm and foot massage I felt relieved from all my stress. Most of all, it left my skin looking better than ever and saw even more results after-wards. The spa manager was not only knowledgeable enough to advise me on which facial to choose from but also showed me some of their featured products to use to help me get my skin back to look its best. I felt obligated to write about my experience as it was an excellent one. Thank you Iguazu and you will see me regularly when i come up to New York.
Note: Starbucks, Chase bank, restaurants and a pharmacy are all in the same area, great to spend an afternoon in the city and get it all done.
I had a very nice experience – i went to this spa yesterday for the 1st time upon recommendation . I had heard from a friend that their massages are really unique . Boy ! i wasn't disappointed . The spa was very quiet which i really liked and there's definitely a feel of serenity upon entering. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist and was offered tea/ water ...
When my masseur was ready he took me upstairs of the spa where there is a quaint lounging area with 4 treatment rooms
My therapist asked me a few questions before proceeding. When he started the massage then I understood i was in good hands. The flow of the massage was continuous and just perfect.The music was also different from any other spa ive been to and created a new dimension to my relaxation. I enjoyed every minute of it. When the massage ended i was told to take my time and if i didnt listen to myself I could've stayed there for a while.
I will definitely be back.
Not Worth It – I went to this spa because of Spa Finders Deal Days. Alas, I didn’t have a good visit and won’t be back. Upon arrival, I thought I'd be offered a robe and slippers and shown the relaxation area. That didn't happen. Instead, the man at the front desk began by telling me, "All services under the Spa Finders Deal Days specials are cash only." That was a problem because I meant to pay with my debit card. I asked if he knew a Citibank nearby and he did look one up for me.
There are no locker rooms; you change in the massage room. Even though it was now 5pm the room was still not ready. When I went upstairs, I was greeted by a male therapist. Oops, new problem. When I booked my appointment I wrote my preference for a female. The therapist went downstairs and the guy from the front desk came up to talk to me, but only to say there was nothing they could do about it. It was now 5:10pm.
The room was cold and the massage so-so and painful at times. When doing deep tissue, men just don't know their own strength, even when you tell them to ease up. He massaged my back and my feet, with just a few strokes on my legs. To my surprise, he said "Take your time getting up" and it was DONE without me ever turning over. Worse yet, it was only 40 minutes! The massage started LATE, it should have ended at 6pm, but when I looked at my watch it was 5:50pm. NOT COOL.
The man from the front desk asked how it was and I let him know I did NOT get my full 50 minutes. No response. He brought me to a Bathroom/Shower/Sauna combo area, all in one room so it can only be used by ONE person at a time. Good thing they weren’t busy. The sauna is TINY. You can't lie down and even sitting up was tight as I am 6 feet tall. It also took a while to get hot; I was in over 15 minutes before I broke a sweat.
There are no bins for used towels/robes, so I left them by the sink. When I went to pay, the front desk guy kindly let me use my debit card instead of schlepping to the bank. I asked was it normal to only have one side massaged and he said yes. Only during the longer massage sessions, 85 minutes, will you get both sides. Finally, I had to ask for water because no one had offered me any since my massage. I had a thermos of ice with me to take into the sauna, which was lucky because he gave me a bottle of water out of a cabinet and it was warm.
Best Mani/Pedi – I took advantage of the "$50 and under special" through Time Out NY and was pleasantly surprised. My technician, Virginia, was so nice and professional. It's one of the few times I have had wax done and not broken out... she even suggested chamomile to reduce redness. I was already impressed and then the mani/pedi was sheer perfection. The facilities are very clean... a relief here in NYC. Virginia paid attention to every detail and was extremely thorough. My nails look amazing, feel strong and my cuticles have never looked healthier. Amazing job. The regular price for mani/pedi may be more than I am used to paying, but I have learned it is well worth it when you want quality service and treatment! I will be visiting Virginia soon ; )
Great for couples – I booked a couples massage and facial for Valentine's Day. We waited an hour but the owner was incredibly nice and serviceable, offering us champagne and juice and water. The atmosphere was lovely and the massages were by far the best we ever had. The facials were good too. We really enjoyed our evening here, although, truth be told, it was definitely a bit too expensive.
best bachelorette / birthday spa party – After carefully reading reviews and screening some spas we decided to opt for this one . My friend was turning 40 and getting married so we decided to make it a whole spa day ! We not only received the best possible service but the atmosphere of the spa was simply superb. Not one detail was left aside at this place . I usually find it hard to relax and I caught myself falling asleep at some point. The technicians were perfectly skilled , able to answer any question regarding treatments and results . We all received the best spa experience ever and I couldn't leave without writing a well-deserved review. Thank you again for making her day so special !!
I had The best massage there – I went to this spa for the 1st time an received a fantastic deep tissue massage. I get massage twice a month and the therapist I had at Iguazu Spa was from far the best. He didnt leave any muscle knot. the day after i felt like a new person!! the ambiance of the spa was peaceful and relaxing!! Definitely a must-go place
Best place for deep tissue massage – "I stop by this spa while i was shopping in Soho and to my surprise i received the best Deep-tissue massage i have ever got... super friendly staff ( but that's not enough to impress me) the massage itself was just perfect. My therapist erased all the knots I had on my back and in my calves and 2 days later i felt like a new person ! Also i really liked the heated mattress and the music was great !! i would definitely recommend this spa and im looking forward to my next visit there!"
PS: the therapist was indeed very strong and deep tissue i receive. if you are looking for just a classic rub down with no pressure, this isn't the place. They do take massage seriously and to a therapeutic level
