The Ultimate Pampering and the Best value – Of all luxury spas in New York Sothys offers the best service for the best value. The minute you come through the door you are in the luxurious osis of tranquility and relaxaton. The staff is very attentive and skilled. The treatments are of the best technique and quality - it helps that the esteticians are trained in Paris. They use high quality products that really work. Every time I go to the Sothys salon, I leave very relaxed and rejuvenated. Warning - if you try it - you get hooked and never go anywhere else.
best waxing – I've been there several time for a full brazillian wax. Jenna is amazing! She has such good skill that it makes the entire process as painless as it should be. She used two different type of waxes for different area. Very skillfull. She is also very meticulous giving you a mirror to check for any strand of hair left. I have been a couple of places for brazillian waxing recommended by Citysearch....Sothys is my permanent home for waxing now. It is a bit pricy but I don't need to go home and tweeze the left behind anymore. Been there for massage too, Sarah is the best!
Good, but not GREAT! – I received a gift card for Sothys over a year ago and forgot it was even in my pocket. When I called Sothys, the receptionist told me that it was still valid and I could just pay the difference for my treatment. I had a 60-minute massage that was good, but not great. I arrived a little bit early, so I sat outside the locker room reading a magazine. There was a screen that separated this area from the front desk, but it was open to anyone coming and going through the spa. That felt somewhat weird considering I was only wearing a robe. Otherwise, the service was great. Everyone from the front desk to the therapist were all courteous and prompt.
Great Service! – For NY Spa Week 2006, I decided to take my mom, aunt and best friend for ladies day of relaxation. I've been to many many spas during spa week and I have to comment on the level of service I received at Sothys. I booked our appts. on the first day of Spa Week and we had mid-day appts. of massages, facials and scrubs. From the moment I walked in to 5 hours later when I left, I never received such amazing service from the technicians to the manager of the spa. The massage and scrub was a great combo and Sarah did a great job! I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards and so did my family & friends. The staff ordered and set up lunch from Mangia for us downstairs in their little cafe area. We were also treated to complimentary white & red wine, coffee, tea, cappuccino's and cookies. The maintenance staff who set up our lunch were both great! They were very patient, friendly and eager to make our day great. I'm thankful that it wasn't very busy on the day I went because the staff was better able to give us exceptional service. I would go back again because to me good service always makes a spa day or any day much more pleasant. Keep up the great work!
Parisian spa palace gracing Fifth Avenue. – In Short
For the ultimate French spa experience in New York, the posh get pampered at L'Institut. Curvy, contemporary design over three floors hides 10 treatment rooms and a special hydrotherapy room, with a large skylight overhanging the tub. Estheticians, trained at the Paris headquarters, perform head-to-toe signature treatments with Sothys' products--the complete line of which is exclusively sold in the spa's shop. A petite French bistro calms with light, post-treatment bites.
Spa with no private shower facilities?! – Good massage but there are not showers! (so French!). The staff was confused why anyone would want to take a shower afterwards! There is one shower in a treatment room but you have to walk though the entire spa when you are done to get to the changing room to dry your hair and change. Not so private.
Results and profesional staff – The Sothys Institut is one of the best Spa's I have visited in many years. Their staff is very well trained and products are of high quality> The results of a facial is immediate and long lasting.
i will return on my next New York visit.
