Best Massage Ever – Had a 60 minute swedish massage yesterday at Destiny Day Spa and it was honestly one of the best massages I've ever had. The masseuse knew from the first 10 minutes exactly where my problem areas were that I didn't even know of and I have felt amazing since leaving. I slept perfectly last night and feel incredily relaxed and rejuvenated.
Thank you for your positive feedback! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your massage! Linda Orhun-Spa Owner
best pedicure i've had! – first time to an unknow spa for a mani and pedi. i was greeted in a friendly manner and asked if i wanted anything then my tech Clara greeted me and led me to a very comfortable throne like chair, where my tired feet were treated to an hour of splendor! i was never so relaxed in my life. i must say that was the BEST pedicure i have had. the spa was quiet with very relaxing spa music being played. i even fell asleep. but the best surprise was, when Clara and her magic hands massaged my feet. i was in heaven. they have monthy specials which i will soon partake in. i cant wait to return to my destiny.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon!-Linda Orhun-Spa Owner
What a gem! – If you want an amazing respite from the bustle of the City's Upper East Side, this is the place to go. I spent an afternoon here a few weekends ago with a few girl friends, and I can't tell you what a great experience I had. I got the European Facial, which was fantastic. I got complements on my skin for days afterwards. The aesthetician was very knowledgeable and explained every step of the way. A couple of my friends had massages, and swore they were the best they had had in years, if not ever. The staff is friendly, and the owner offers her calming presence and special touch to make the experience even more special. On top of all of this, the prices are amazingly reasonable. I will be back soon.
Slowest service I've ever experienced! – Given the location of this spa (Upper East Side, nr Bloomingdale's), I expected more, clearly they're not living up to their potential, nor will they get the clientele this neighborhood brings given their poor service. World's slowest mani/pedi! With so many great spas to visit in NYC, do not waste your time here!! My girlfriend and I decided to book a girl's evening out. My friend was surprised to learn, when making our appointment, there was only one technician. Don't book any plans after your scheduled time here because that one technician takes FOREVER! My appointment was at 4:30, I didn't leave until 2 hours later for a basic mani/pedi! Spa goers with skin that isn't white-bring your own polish, the selection of colors here is minimal and highly disappointing! Not only was the technician slow, she was also quite unprofessional asking my friend to turn the A/C when she was hot, carry my shoes, and put away the nail polishes when we were done. Unbelievable! -Especially since there were two other women working at the spa, I have no idea their roles since they didn't offer any support or help while we were there. If that's not enough, the technician listened in on our conversation which happened to be about my new cell phone; the next thing I knew, the technician brought me her phone and asked me to set up her email, radio and internet service. This, in the middle of my pedicure!! As if the slow service, intrusive technician & lack of variety in polish colors isn't enough, my manicure peeled off three of my fingers the very next day!! It didn't even last long enough for an event I had that weekend and I had to redo them myself-with a much more flattering color of course! This has never happened to me before! In short, I recommend somewhere else for your nails, if you're treating yourself, go somewhere that will actually feel like a treat!!! -this is NOT the place!!
Thank you very much for your feedback. I am not sure which technician you saw, but I am going to address this situation with all my nail technicians. This has never happened before, and as the owner of the business, I offer my sincerest apology that you had this experience. I would be happy to make this up to you and your friend, and you can call the spa and speak to me personally.
Best Deep Bikini Wax and Mani/Pedi's – This was a special find for me. I had a great girl, Bridgette, she was so attentive to detail and everything was prefect. I had a great mani/pedi. Later I had a deep brazilian wax and I was a little nervous, but realize with Bridgette, there's no need to be, it wasn't painful and turned out fantastic. Thank you so much to everyone there for making that experience so fantastic, I really had a great time. I can't wait to tell my friends and can't wait to go back again.
BTW, it was clean, the products were great quality, the staff, each person felt like a friend and it was an overall great day!
Best Facials and eyebrows – I have my facials and my eyebrows done at Destiny Beauty & Wellness Spa. Florica does my facials and eyebrows. First, Florica does the BEST eyebrows in the city. They're perfect.! Just right for my face. And for the facial, she really does a great job. My skin was clean and glowing.. Destiny Beauty & Wellness Spa is the best keep secret in town. It is a gem is this big City!
Best Brazilian Wax in town!! – I love Destiny Day Spa! I had the best brazilian wax in all my years in Manhattan. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The wax was very gentle and left my skin soft and smooth. They do not double dip at this spa it is immaculate; very very clean. To top it all off the price is excellent! With all the spas in NYC, Destiny offers the best price and service I highly recommend it!
The best spa for bridal parties! – I had the pleasure of having a little "bridal spa party" (myself and five friends) the day before my wedding. Most of us went for the "beauty to go" package, and I paid just a little extra to extend the massage to one hour. The massage was the best I have *ever* had - and I recently returned from Thailand, where I also went to a spa! I also had a manicure / pedicure, and a facial. The facial was perfect - thorough, but I had no redness and just looked fresh faced and perfect for my wedding day! All of my friends had a great time too. The spa staff were very warm and friendly, and let us bring in some champagne from the outside to share around.
I have since recommended this spa to many friends and plan to return for another massage & facial soon.
This spa has great service and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend it!
shaky service, but great owner – as a customer, if i receive a service that is less than great, i expect some type of effort to remedy the situation...
thankfully, the owner was very willing to help me feel better about the experience i had and because of her, i have every bit of confidence that whatever pitfalls i expereinced will be altered for future reference.
Room for Improvement – and there was so much background noise that my mind kept racing to get out of there! conversing, laughter, mirror breaking, etc were all distractions that annoyed me.
there was a sign in the waiting area that said turn phones on silent or completely off, yet the manicurist chatted away on her cell in another language forever.
it just needs to be more conducive to peace, tranquility and relaxation. noise counteracted all of that
