ahhhhhhhhh!. I had a massage, ...a wonderful beating really! A wonderful, productive, stimulating, relaxing bamboo massage! Fabian, the owner, was simply amazing! He made sure I was taken care of. He was patient, explaining all the treatments, working with me to discover exactly what I needed. It was bliss! Very professional, top notch spa! The actual space is beautiful too! I need to hire whoever it was that designed that space!! LOL! doubt that I could afford it though! Check this place out, you won't be disappointed!
Awesome Deep Tissue Massage, Average for everything else. I had my first Deep Tissue massage at Iguazu which put me in Cloud 9 & relieved so much built-up stress in my body (it was well worth the pain!). The only thing was the massage table was not set up how i'm used to where you slip under the sheets (like a comfy bed) - its just a regular table w. a flat sheet or towel to lay on top of and then a small bath towel to cover you. I thought it was a little strange being that everything else was top of the line & the spa itself was a very beautiful & relaxing loft space. Maybe that's what they do for Deep Tissue? I also had a manicure & pedicure and was not too happy compared to other places I've gone to (and for a lot cheaper). The shower & Keihl's products are nice to use after. The overall experience was good.
One of the best day spa experiences ever.. I travel quite often and have had almost every service that one can imagine in almost every corner of the world. I stumbled onto this place from SpaFinders and was quite surprised when I arrived. The owner is very customer focused and a super nice guy. Its a little smaller than I had thought and at first, but it turned out that because it is a bit smaller, the service is more personal. Whoever works with you has time to talk to you and answer questions and give advice, something that is not always the case. My first visit I had a facial and was so impressed that me and my friend booked a massage for the next day. My friend was equally impressed. I am glad to see that a vast majority of the posts are positive and I scratch my head as to the two negative posts. I am 100% confident if you were not pleased the owner would have done near anything to please you. At the same time, some people are never pleased. I live in Chicago and get to NYC quite often and have visited after my first appointment and again have an appointment next week. One post had that the prices were a little expensive for the neighborhood. I think the prices are prolly about average for NYC prices, but I found that you get alot more and much better service than I have had at other NYC day spas. While I do like to try new things, I don't see myself changing spas anytime soon and I don't see myself coming to NYC and not visiting the spa. Oh, one other big plus...they do have very good specials from time to time. I would tell anyone who needs to spoil themselves or someone else or maybe just needs a little stress relief, check this place out....you will not be disappointed.
So Sad my gift certificate went to this.
I received a coveted Spa Finder gift certificate for my wedding last year. I chose this location due to it's proximity to my job and figured I could get a fall pedicure (to slough off the calluses from past few months). I called ahead and set up an appointment for the Iguazu eucalyptus paraffin wrap pedicure 60 minutes for $68 including an acai berry foot scrub, eucalyptus and peppermint bath, regular pedi, paraffin dip and 30 minute foot massage. I was forewarned that there was a large party coming in from 11 - 1 so I should schedule for after that. So I made my appointment for 2.
I got there for 2:00 on the dot only to be told that I'd have to wait (seems the prior group had run over time). At 2:20 the woman began my pedicure on a very uncomfortable pedicure chair that was built into the wall and let off into a tiny sink. She was almost sheepish in her technique barely touching my feet. The calluses that I'd mentioned on the phone and again in person, she barely touched. She put some kind of tingly solution on them and told me that it would need to sit. ? an hour later at 3:05... she emerged to finish the pedicure. She scrubbed lightly on said calluses then rinsed me off to place me in the paraffin boots only to disappear again for another 20 minutes.
At one point MY technician peeked her head in to let another technician know that the woman she was working on was in a hurry. At that point (now 3:30) I announced that I too had to go back to work because I took my lunch hour to be there. She told me that I could come back after work for my massage and color since I worked in the area and that she?d be there till 8:00. I showed up at 6:45 and I waited until 7:00 when she showed up? announced that she?d only give me a 10 minute massage (mind you ? the package was supposed to be for 30 minutes) and applied my color and sat me to dry in a drying machine that she explained ?sometimes shut off on it?s own? and did about 10 times in as many minutes.
massage perfection. i finally visited Iguazu today for a much needed massage and i was thrilled with it! Josephine was fantastic, the space is quiet and cozy, the heated massage table simply brilliant - highly recommend this lovely little neighborhood spa. fantastic service and walked out with my stress melted away. loved it.
I visited this spa last weekend ( i only live a couple of blocks away) and i was just giving it a try since i didnt previously hear about it. Being a regular spa goer and knowing what a great massage is , i must say that I was completely blown away by the quality of the massage i received at Iguazu spa . Not only the therapist had an amazing energy but his technique was absolutely flawless. The massages strokes were perfectly orchestrated and uninterrupted which made the massage amazing.
the place also had a real spa feel which added to my experience.
I have gone to numerous places in the city and i must tell you to receive a massage this great i would definitely travel. Luckily for me this place is around the corner from where I leave. I would definitely recommend any massage addicts to try it.
Great service. I thought it was a nice experience. It was a slow day, being a summer Saturday, so I received extra service and perks that I may not have otherwise gotten on a regualr day. I wish they had a nice locker room facility, though. They only have a bathroom for one upstairs, with sauna and steam shower in it. Also, the pedicure station has really uncomfortable benches. Not really supportive of a luxurious spa environment. All in all, I thought my spa specialist and the receptionish/manager worked hard to make it a relaxing time.
Best in NYC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. For mothers day I took my mother and my sister here for a day of beauty and it was an amazing experiance!! All three of us had massage, facial, pedicure, manicure, haircut and blowouts. Every therapist was incrediable...Fabian the amazingly handsome owner provides the most personal experiance. I have never been to a spa with so much personal attention...very different than the "factory spas" in NYC. All three of us loved the treatments. The massage and facial were the best I have ever had..the therapist is trained in deep tissue using the hot stones...which was heavenly. My facialist made my skin glow and it was so relaxing..there was no time clock...all of my treatments were exteneded and extra 5 or 10 min. No words can descibe how wonderful or experiance was...I cant wait to go back!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
suprisingly relaxing experience. last weekend i tried this spa on the advice of my friend. Had the best massage of my life and a superb facial. It's acquaint little place beautifully decorated in rainforest motif. It was a little out of the way for an upper east sider like myself but the relaxing, unpretentious antmosphere and the attentive, friendly yet professional staff made it well worth the trip . would definitely go again
fantastic spa ambiance and service.
i went to a variety of spas in the city and i rarely found a spa where i got so well pampered. Every staff member were polite and friendly . I received a 1 hour massage that was truly amazing and undid all muscle knots i had. Although my facialist didnt talk much during the facial, it allowed me to relax and enjoy the waves of various creams and sprays that were applied to my face. I even received a foot massage while i was getting the facial. Finally i got a great pedicure and a week later my toes still look great.
I would definitely recommend this place
