I've had many massages both in NYC at some of the top spas and abroad (in Italy, Croatia, Japan, etc) and the massage I had today surpassed any I've had before. The masseuse had the strongest hands I've felt for a woman. I like a firm massage and usually the masseuse doesn't have enough strength to last for the whole hour, but Vanessa had some of the strongest hands - stronger than many massages I've had done by males. Her technique was like no other - every spot she touched felt so good and she really worked out the knots I had in my back - you could tell that she was highly-trained. The massage also offered other small nice touches - which included a chocolate waiting for us on our massage bed, heated massage tables, a hot towel was pressed on our feet after our feet were massaged, eye masks for our eyes when we turned on our backs, etc. The spa itself is peaceful, warm, inviting, and clean. They did a great job with the design and layout of the spa. Our actual massage (we had a couples massage) took place in a room which had natural light coming through - which was a very nice touch.

Overall I would highly recommend this spa and the massages to everyone. I can't wait to start to tell my friends about this place, especially for those who live in Brooklyn - the location is convenient in Park Slope. But even for those who live in Manhattan - it's well worth the ride out. Again, Vanessa gave the best massage I've ever had and I look forward to going back to her!

Cons: None

Going to D'Mai is like to going to your best friends home...warm and inviting. Only this best friend will pamper you with extraordinary treatments and superb products. The massages are are excellent but the facials divine!
Lana, the facialist, has hands of gold. I have been geeting facials since the early 1980s and this woman Lana is truly the best. Knowledgable, thorough, gentle, pampering and a wonderful soul. Her facials take years off my skin and it glows.They do not push products onyou although there productes are superb and reasonably price for the quality.
All in all I highly recommend D'Mai

This beautifully-decorated, calming spa on busy Fifth Ave. is truly an oasis. Enter and you smell the clean scent of eucalyptus. The massages I've had (two of them) have been great, with caring, well-trained massage therapists. I can't wait to go back.

i'm not one for pampering myself - in fact i could be a bit awkward when people are tending to my every need - but at d'mai i indulged. the staff are sweet and mellow (just how you want it for a relaxing experience) and my massage was heavenly. the facility is quiet, sensual, and smells incredible. the decor takes you off the streets of park slope and plops you into a dim & tranquil world, which to some might be disorienting, but that's just what i needed. the massage table is heated (just enough) so you don't have to worry about getting cold. faina was an attentive massage therapist who immediately recognized the problem zones and focused her energy on working them out. it is pricey, but for those who can afford it, or for the special occasion or gift, i think d'mai is worth it.

I have been to many spas as I travel frequently due to business. I must admit I love D'mai. Whenever I am in the NYC area, I always make the trip to Park Slope to visit D'mai. Thanks for always taking good care of me.

Pros: Everything

My daughter got me a package at d'mai for Mothers Day my only question to my daughter is what took you so long to send me to d'mai? I arrived for my appointment a bundle of nerves and left completely calm and relaxed. I received both a facial and massage, both were wonderful. The environment is beautiful and very transforming, I literally felt like I was on vacation. I cannot wait to go back.,let's hope my children can take my hints. I highly recommend d'mai.

I discovered heaven on earth...Or at least heaven in New York! This is the perfect spa with a tasteful and relaxing decor, but most importantly with great estheticians and massage therapists. Everything was worth of a 5th Ave. experience...only with with Brooklyn prices. Cannot wait to go back!

I had never had a facial before, but this was quite a treat! The aesthetician was fantastic. She was very informative. She first asked me a bunch of questions about what kind of skincare I do for my face. Then took a close look at my skin and gave me some recommendations...all in all she said my skin looked good. Then she gave me peel, washed it off, gave me a face massage, exfoliated...it went on...it was pretty awesome. I've never experienced anything like it. She had a great touch. And all in a very comfortable environment. I've never seen a spa quite like that...even in Manhattan. It's beautiful!! This is definitely the best spa in Brooklyn. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I was recently staying at a local Bed & Breakfast in Park Slope and they recommended D'mai to me when I mentioned I could use a little pampering. I was so pleased with my services. I felt right at home from the moment I walked through the door and when I was taken to wait for my services I was not expecting to see such a beautiful quite Oasis right in the heart of Brooklyn. My massage relaxed me and my facial put me right over the top, if it was up to me I never would of left. I will definately make D'mai a regular stop whenever I am remotely near Park Slope.

My mom gave me a gift certificate for my birthday to d'mai, I live in Park Slope but usually go into the city for my facials. Wow, was I surprised...what a GREAT experience. The spa is beautiful and my facialist was amazing. She really took her time with me and I left glowing. I will never take the subway home from a facial again.

This place is overpriced for all their services. My sister in law got a body treatment, only to break out in hives 2 days later. Yes, it is a pleasant environment, but nothing special enough to pay $130 for a one hour massage. They offer some nuts and dried fruit, and some fruity water, but that's it! I expected to be somewhat pampered. Oh well, I won't return!

I had to only go once for a simple treatment (facial and body waxing) to realize this place had problems and I didn't want to return. Not only was the technician lacking in people skills entirely, but after my wax when I got home I found there were stray hairs all over the place that she missed. I am someone who typically doesn't care at all what the place looks like - I want the service done professionally and done right. It is literally all I care about. As long as a place is clean it's acceptable. Which is what's wrong with D'Mai. The owner's values are obviously the polar opposite. The interior of the salon, with its huts and bridges and running water over rocks, is so over the top I almost giggled as I was led through to my treatment room. They try way too hard with the decor and try not at all with providing good service.

I recently went to the island of St. Barths. There is a well knowm Spa which is very pricey and the least to say was not very pleased with their services. I was very dissapointed on this trip, cause i needed to get some serenity. I mentioned to a freind that i was still not relaxed after my trip.He recomended i go to D'mai. praising the fact that is in our neighborhood and i will totally enjoy it. I was thinking no way ! i spend $$$$ going away on a trip and all i had to do was walk a few blocks down from my house. Sure it enough i took his advice and i could honestly say i was very pleased with the enviroment .I treated myself to a massage with Richard and a facial by a young lady name Sali.
Both treatments were great and i wanted to thank them for their hospitality. Now i know i can save my $ and just walk to my serenity.
Keep up the good work....

I went here for a facial a few months back. The front staff was super nice, but I felt like the woman who gave me my treatment was derisive and pushy. She took a look at my face and told me I should upgrade my treatment. I politely told her I'd rather just have the standard treatment for now, thanks, but then she got pushy about it, saying my skin was in poor condition (hey, it's not that bad, lady!). She then sighed unpleasantly and said "Well, fine, I guess if you can't afford it, then just go this one." Okay, who are you to assume that I can't afford it? It's my first time at the place, I'm going to test it out before I go the full scour on my face. I thought it was rude. My skin did look better after the facial, and I'd say she did a fairly good job. But jeez, what an attitude!

I have been receiving services at D'mai for the past year and each time I enter the tranquil spa, I feel myself instantly at peace and begin to leave my busy life outside. I am in the service industry and am extremely picky about where I go for treatments. I've had good massages and facials elsewhere, however, it never came full circle. Either the decor was awful, or the noise drew my attention elsewhere. But at D'mai, the calming music, soothing aromas and welcoming staff all come together in perfect harmony. All the details were thought of and it shows with the cucumber water waiting for you, the robes folded just right and the charms placed on the keys for the lockers. I truly look forward to my time when I retreat into another land, D'mai.

Check out Saleh or Shin for facials!

I am a pampering junkie. I have been to many places in NYC and I have to say that d'mai has become my favorite place to frequent. I would travel distance to get great services, but I no longer need to because d'mai is right here in my neighborhood. The environment is peaceful and beautiful, the staff is friendly and approachable NOT to mention extremely talented. I recommend all of my clients and friends and all have thanked me for the recommendation. I always look forward to my pampering day!

I've been getting massages at D'mai for awhile and love their massages. Service by all staff is friendly and attentive except for the woman who does facials. I have loved all my experiences at D'mai except for two facials.

First, she talks too much during the facial and will try to get you to upgrade to a more expensive facial. When she was examining my face, she said I needed to get my eyebrows waxed but I didn't think it was neccessary but she kept persisting, even saying to me, "You like looking like that?"

She also scrapes your face when she removing blemishes. It hurts. Plus, she kept asking me personal questions which I didn't think was appropriate during a facial.

All in all, avoid the facials. Get a massage! Or waxing. The woman who does waxing there is amazing. Barely hurt for sensitive areas and she was the best waxing treatment I have ever had.

-----To be clear, this spa is gorgeous and spacious. It smells amazing. Some of the staff are wonderful. I've had 2 massages that were out of this world. 1 facial that was amazing. I have dealt with two amazingly warm and welcoming receptionists. However, I have also had three nail services that were freaking awful! For almost sixty dollars once would hope for good service and great nails. En contraire; I've had a tech answer her mobile, eat food while doing my pedicure, leave me alone for fifteen minutes to contemplate if they will ever come back to actually paint my toe nails, and say degrading and disgusting things in Spanish (yes, I understood her). SHE smudged MY nail and was upset with me for it, she very roughly fixed with while obviously fuming and then told me she didn't have time for my scheduled waxing. What?! I paid what for this? I left work early for this? I hired an after school sitter for this? I have been looking forward for weeks to THIS?

-----A few months ago, a woman at the check-in desk asked my sister if she was pregnant (which she was NOT) and then behaved as if we were lying. She told us we should have to pay $15 more for a prenatal massage. My sister was mortified! The owner should be humiliated by the low standards he/she allows!

-----Pretty spa with good service sometimes. I for one don't want to play roulette with my money, time or relaxation.

I love this place. Without a question one of the spa's around. The space is beautiful and the staff is professional and knows what they are doing. I have received both facials and massages here and I have never been disappointed. From the time I walk in the front door to the time I leave, I feel as though I have been taken to another place. No hustle and bustle just relaxation. I highly recommend d'mai.

I recently visited d'mai for my ??? time as I am a frequent visitor. I love the services, staff and atmosphere. They are a top-notch spa with a neighborhood feel. I travel often for my work, so when I return a little pampering is on the menu. Thanks d'mai for taking such good care of me!

Pros: Everything

I think its important when you see so many good reviews on a place to be thruthful about the experience. While the staff is friendly and perfectly professional, I have to admit the manicure/pedicure was awful. Not only did she rush, but the nail polish was all over the place and she corrected it so many times I finally had to leave in frustration. It was probably one of the worst manicure/pedicures i have ever had, not too mention the most expensive. Very, very disappointing. I would not recommend you let them go near your face if they cant handle your toes.

Wow I had no idea of the size of spa, it opens up to a whole other world! The space is beautiful and so calm and every possible detail has been thought of. I have visited many other spas both in New York and out and I must say dmai ranks up there with some of the best. I had a chance to chat with the owner, Daniella who is absolutely delightful and inspiring. I received a massage from Richard and a facial from Shin, both of these services were lovely and left feeling like I was floating on a cloud. Great services, great staff, great EVERYTHING!

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, I get massages quite regularly. I also work in a massage school and know a lot of massage therapists and have been to a lot of spas. I will honestly say (and this place is my competition) that if you are looking for a wonderful, restful spa experience in Brooklyn, that this is the place to go.

It is beautifully decorated with every detail considered of your experience in mind. The feeling is peaceful and serene as soon as you come in from the busy street. You will be greeted by friendly and helpful people throughout your visit. The practitioners and talented, caring and happy to be working there (they have told me so)...this is rare in the spa world.

If you are looking for a spa day, treat yourself...You deserve it

My girlfrind got me a massage as a gift (which I appreciated) getting me to go - was another story. As a guy who has never thought too much about going to a spa, it took a little extra push. Now I am wondering what took me so long to discover this! I have had soreness in my back for as long as I can remember, my therapist worked out every last pain and I left feeling better than I have in years. I was also provided with some stretches that would be helpful to me. Cool place, nice people, slamin' services! Without a doubt I will be back!

I was visiting New York for my first time over the holidays and for a change of pace I stayed in Brooklyn. As I am from the Midwest everything was an eye opener. I was walking along 5th Avenue and happened upon D'mai, with a few moments of wondering if I should go in or not, I walked in and booked myself a facial and a massage - neither of which I have ever had! A few hours later I arrived back for my appointment ( a little nervous) because I really did not know what to expect. I was treated with such kindness and warmth that I felt instantly at ease. I loved my time there, I left feeling like a new person. When I got home, I decided that treating myself is on the books for 2007. Thanks D'mai for taking such good care of me, If I ever return to New York , I will be knocking at your door.

I was visiting New York for my first time over the holidays and for a change of pace I stayed in Brooklyn. As I am from the Midwest everything was an eye opener. I was walking along 5th Avenue and happened upon D'mai, with a few moments of wondering if I should go in or not, I walked in and booked myself a facial and a massage - neither of which I have ever had! A few hours later I arrived back for my appointment ( a little nervous) because I really did not know what to expect. I was treated with such kindness and warmth that I felt instantly at ease. I loved my time there, I left feeling like a new person. When I got home, I decided that treating myself is on the books for 2007. Thanks D'mai for taking such good care of me, If I ever return to New York , I will be knocking at your door.

Pros: No Attitude, Lovely Space, Welcoming

Cons: none

.

As a guy who just recently began to understand that it's really ok to take care of your skin - I cannot say enough about the services here. At first, to be honest I was a little unsure (robe, slippers) but I have become a regular and my skin looks and feels great. I really appreciate the kindness I am shown every time I walk in the door. This place is an amazing spa!

Simply put. I love this place. I have always gotten great services and have always been greeted with warm welcomes and smiles. The staff is professional and respectful. If you want a true spa experience, this is the place to go.

I came to D'mai on the advice of a friend, and in dire straights. I had been having awful headaches for the past few weeks, and with my history of TMJ and a recent stretch of high-stress at work, I was in desperate need of some quality massage. My therapist, Micah, didn't disappoint...true to the words of my friend, his hands are magic. He gave me breathing exercises that have really helped (I think I forgot how to breathe properly) In fact, I felt so transformed after our time together I booked another session for next week. The relaxing smell of the spa and the quality of the robes are a nice touch, and I made good use of the sauna...Micah told me to take my time, and I did. A great escape and a real place for healing and rejuvenation. Just what I needed!

Maybe i went on an off day but i wasn't impressed. I waited for about 20 minutes for my massage. which is something that i have never experianced at any other spa. The massage itself was decent but I have been to many other places that were better. This isn't a place I would go out of my way for.

I had some family members staying at the new Holiday Inn Express on Union Street and they wanted to have a spa treatment from somewhere in the neighborhood. I have heard many wonderful things about D'mai so they were my choice and thankfully after speaking with their wonderful staff they were able to accomodate all of us - which made it more special and fun for us. I cannot say enough good things about the place. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we were treated with kindness and professionalism. We loved it!

Dear Reader, don't belive the hype on this site. This spa is tiny, noisy and overpriced for the quality of service. These people do not know how to do nails. I can't speak for the other services D'mai offers, but I can't believe they'd be very relaxing in this environment. I've gone to a lot of places in BK and Manhattan to have my nails done--this was the worst and the most expensive. Save yourself a trip.

I am an avid spa goer, not only when I vacation but also when I am home, pamper, pamper, pamper is my motto. I hopped on the train and headed to Brooklyn for a visit to d'mai. I must say I was so impressed. After changing into my rode, I was seated in a waiting area all by myself that was so peaceful and calming. I received a 90 minute massage that was one of the best I have ever gotten. After my massage I sat in the sauna for a few mintues then took a long wonderful shower using all types of delicious products. d'mai is not just "another place" they really have a special touch. I will be a frequent guest.

I am currently expecting my first child, needless to say I have been experiencing a lot of discomfort. I began my quest to find a place to get a massage. I soon found out there are many places in the neigborhood that offer massages, however d'mai is truly the only full service spa. I was greeted by a warm friendly staff, where after answering a few questions escorted me to the changing room. I soon found myself in a robe I could live in, sitting in a bamboo chair surrounded by flowers and plants and the calming sounds of water. I received a prenatal massage from Nichole, which was absolutely perfect. She was able to answer all of my questions (and I was full of them) and she was able to show me some safe stretches to assist me with my lower back pain. I have not felt this good in a few months. I am looking forward to another visit.

I booked services here for both myself and my girlfriend, we received a massage together in the cabana. I felt like a superhero, my girlfriend was so excited! Our massages were right on point, I could not of asked for a better serivce. Afterwards we relaxed together in the sauna and she asked me if I placed the rose petals on her massage table, she thought that was so sweet and romantic. Thanks for making our day special, you have a great place. We will be back.

I moved back to Park Slope after years of living on the West Coast. I was so thrilled to know that a full service spa opened up in the neighborhood. I received my first massage/facial there today and they were both wonderful. The space was more than I expected, it is beautifully decorated and quite spacious. The front desk staff greeted me with a smile (which in some spas is rare), both of my therapists were professional and made sure my concerns were addressed. And one of the best perks, I was able to walk home afterwards! No cab ride = no hassles! I wish you all the best!

After reading all the rave reviews, I was expecting heaven. The staff was very pleasant but the space was small. All the rooms were small, from the reception to the changing room to the service rooms. The service rooms were not very serene, I was trying to relax during my facial and I kept hearing conversations from the hallway. The most annoying was that the facialist kept pushing products and services. She would not relent and wouldnt continue until i agreed to the peel that she said i had to have. Then, she kept on pushing additional products...lotions, serums, etc. Overall, very disappointed.

I loved this spa. No attitude, soothing atmosphere and great services. You can tell that d'mai takes pride in the services they provide. My massage therapist was Alex who was amazing, my back and shoulders feel as though they have been "reborn"!

Pros: No Attitudes, Clean, Comfortable Robes

I decided to check out D'mai based on all the great massage reviews, so I spent this morning/afternoon in Brooklyn (I have reviews on Blue Sky Bakery, Trattoria Mulino, and The Chocolate Room, all of which are in the area, if you're interested). First of all, let me just say what a truly beautiful spa this is. The treatment room area is just gorgeous, and the stretch of bamboo flooring is beautiful. It is just marvelously decorated. However, the floors do creak a lot and the walls are fairly thin, so you do hear a lot of noise when people walk on the bamboo floor or are talking (which happened a number of times during my massage). But the changing area was nice as well, the towels and robes were both extremely soft and comfortable, there is a very nice sauna, and it was an extremely relaxing environment... Nice music as well :)

I had a massage with Micah which was quite good. I generally rate massages based on how much of a "floating" feeling I have and for how long after the massage, and this one lasted a good hour anyway. But he has great hands and gave a nice massage. Not the best ever, but very good.

Overall, I had a very nice experience at D'mai, and the staff were extremely friendly as well.

This place rocks! I loved the whole experience from start to finish. Your staffs professionalism and courtesy was more than I expected, I left feeling like a VIP. This place has a personal touch. I will definately make the trip from Mid-Town again.

I visited D'mai today for the first time. I live in the neighborhood and have walked by D'mai both going and coming home from work for over a year. I kept saying to myself I need to make an appointment, now I am asking myself - what took me so long. The decor and the layout is lovely, it took me by surprise as the space is larger than I thought. The atmosphere is quite and calming. I received a facial by Celi and a massage by Nichole and they were both amazing, I cannot remember the last time I felt that relaxed. I highly recommend a visit to D'mai - it is a "big time" spa with a neighborhood feel.

After hearing good things, I was very disappointed with d'mai and the d'mai pedicure I received there. The place smelled nice, and the brief massage the woman gave my legs felt good, but other than the massage, she didn't do anything to improve my feet. She did nothing for the rough skin, didn't clean my nails, etc. All she really did was quickly paint my nails, and there are tons of places in Park Slope that can do that at a fraction of the cost (and they'd probably do a better job). Also, there seemed to be some drama among some of the staff who were talking pretty loudly. However, most of the staff seemed pretty nice and attentive. Overall, though, not worth the price!

I had a wonderful experience at D'mai. I was visiting New York on business and I found D'mai on City Search. The trip from Manhattan into Park Slope was a breeze. My facialist and massage therapist were extremely professional and they catered to my every need. The place is so peaceful, I felt like I was all alone. I was able to get a last minute pedicure with Nikki who was perfect. D'mai is definatley worth the visit.

I received a spa package as a gift. Every service was absolutely perfect. The moment I walked in the door I felt the hustle and bustle of every day life begin to melt away. After my facial by Glory who made my skin feel like it hasn't in years, I am pretty sure I just floated over to my massage with Alex who worked complete magic on my back (Thank you)! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place.

I recently moved Park Slope about a month ago and I was so thrilled to find a top notched day spa only a few blocks from my new home. I booked an appointment for both a facial and massage and I was hooked from the first hello at the front desk. I have visited many spas both big and small and D'mai is something special. My job requires me to do alot of traveling, but rest assured my every pit stop at home will have a visit to dmai.

I have been to D'Mai several times for facials for the past couple of years and I have decided not to return.

First, a word on the decor/atmosphere. The glowing comments posted by others are absolutely true. The spa is the epitome of calm and serenity. Just walking through the spa brings my stress level down 10 notches.

Unfortunately, though, the facials I have received have been average to below average. The facials include the standard masks and extractions. However, the facialists constantly push products, which is annoying and stressful. Moreover, they do not consistently provide massages and, once, a facialist fell asleep while my mask was "setting" instead of giving me the required massage. I had to wake her up, and she was not even apologetic.

Although I have never tried their waxing services, I have heard they are quite good.

I would buy the apartment above this place and spend my days basking in the beauty of the concrete islands with fresh flowers and peaceful dimmed lighting. The changing room was spottless with more fresh flowers. They pipe in nature sounds like rushing water and the whole place smells amazing! My massage was out of this world. I had a woman named Harly. Go to her now! My facial was so peaceful and I felt so taken care of... Pampered... Spoiled. I had a nearly painless waxing, something I really appreciate. The front desk staff even came to check on me to ask if I needed anything more. They even had a sauna. Everyone in my family now knows that D'mai gift certificates are the only thing I want for my birthday and xmas.

I received a gift certificate for a facial and massage for the holidays! I was never much of a "spa" person, but Dmai put those feelings to rest. I absolutely enjoyed every moment, the space is beautiful and the staff is just as beautiful. I have already told my husband what to get me for Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Birthday and any day in between...another gift certificate!

From the moment I entered the space I was struck by the friendliness of the staff and the beauty of the place itself. I was thoroughly relaxed before my massage therapist met me in my quiet area off the cedar deck!! The message therapist was very skilled and respectful. If this was not already enough I finished my luxurious time there with a dry sauna!!! I was a puddle. I spent 2 hours there reading their beautiful travel books, drinking tea and having a massage and the complimentary sauna! Run there -- do not walk!
