Clean, friendly, knowledgeable, and didn't smell too chemically inside. Overall a much better experience than Sole di Paradiso. In addition to having a much better atmosphere, the prices are also more reasonable.

I have been going tanning here for almost 5 years now, both airbrushed and tanning and about last week i went tanning and found 3 pieces of hairs in my towel on the tanning bed with white dots, then i needed to get airbrushed so mad for an event so i made an appoitment at the chelsea location and the girl did not even speak english let alone know how to airbrush me.

Discusting and they take your money like its candy.
Never going to beachbum again.

Of all the places in New York, I found Beach Bum to be the best. There are tons of locations all over manhattan, long island, jersey, and the east coast. They have extended store hours. The locations are nicely designed and well maintained.

Had a wedding last weekend and needed some color badly! Made an appointment with Dante at the Beach Bum on 14th Street. It is the best airbrush tan I have ever had. The color is beautiful (still have it after 8 days) and it looks so natural.\r
Totally recommend going to see him!

Pros: Best Airbrush Artists

.

I needed a tan FAST for a last minute photoshoot, so I went to Beach Bum for an airbrush tan. They had an opening for an appointment so they were able to take me right away. I was a little skeptical because I had never tanned at Beach Bum before, but the salesperson was very helpful and the airbrush girl made me feel extremely comfortable. I have never gotten such amazing, natural-looking color from an airbrush tan before! IT WAS AMAZING. I'll be going to Beach Bum from now on for sure.

After tanning in salons for about 6 years and being a frequent customer of beach bum, I will never again go back. I contracted a serious staph infection from one of the ""platinum beds"" and nearly lost my life from the severity of the infection. After contacting the company about this they denied that they were the cause and refused to refund my money for the tanning let alone help me pay the hospitalization bills. The location and timing of the infection only coincided with my trip to this particular salon last July. And not only was I not offered a refund as a valued customer the staff was extremely unnecessarily rude and I possibly could have even died. Please be cautious when tanning in a bed as staph and other infectious diseases are easily spread when the beds aren't properly cleaned. I will never go back.

trying to tan at beach bum is too confusing. there whole system is complicated. you could use one or two machines with each level. i have very dark skin and need the strongest beds, but i dont want to spend $1000 on a package.

$36 for one 7-minute tanning session?! Sorry, make that $26 for the one tanning session and $10 for a 1.5oz. pack of lotion. Simply stated: arbitrarily overpriced and for nothing special. One tanning session there is half the price of a month's membership at a nice gym!

Beach Bum doesn't offer anything so special that it's worth the prices there. Save yourself the money and tan at a cheap East Village salon. You'll get the same glowing effect in the end.

I don't know why InStyle voted this the number one spray tan in New York. The salon is incredibly warm, my appointment was double booked so I had to wait 40 minutes for my appointment, for an over-priced spray tan that last only a handful of days. I have had much better tans for half the price. Don't bother going there, go somewhere else and save yourself the time and money.

Great airbrush tanning but the line to give your name and then pay when u are done is way to long (at least 7 minutes each time) at the 14th Street location. A 2nd cashier is a must!

I recently moved to the union square area from out of town and was pleasantly surprised to find a full service tanning salon with convenient hours. Curious and anxious to check it out I headed in to find a young, eager, and well-informed salesperson behind the counter who explained everything they had to offer in full detail. Being most-interested in the lay down tanning beds, it was recommended that I use their ""Diamond"" level machines because they offered ""the fastest results, with the least amount of redness, and the most amenities to the beds."" After trying their P-90 machine with a recommended lotion I was sold. It only took me three sessions to build my base tan, and two to three sessions a month to maintain my golden glow. With their competitive pricing, informative and well-trained staff, flexible hours, and numerous machines it's a steal! The store is very well kept and worth the travel if it's out of your way.

Being completely clueless about how this tanning business works, I walk into this beautifully designed tanning salon to try to get some kind of color because I'm so pale. The sales woman behind the counter explained how everything worked. When I tell you this place has everything to offer, I mean they have everything!!! Who would have thought that tanning could be so complicated and there were so many things to choose from. I found out that each machine does something different for you. It was just all too cool. I got a package deal where I can either do the tanning bed or the sunless tan which is great by the way and they gave me a whole bunch of free sessions!!!! oh it gets better, since I got a package, I can tan every sunday for free!!!! yesss for free!!!! all i have to do is buy a $5 lotion which you need anyway!! It's so great....I only been twice and I have gotten so many compliments already!!! def check this place out and it was really clean and well maintaned!!!!

Sally, the air brush artist, did a great job with the air brush tanning. I went in last week and was thrilled with the results. I went in yesterday and got my face and arms touched up and I could not have been happier. definitely recommended.

I am really recommending this salon to anyone looking for a tanning salon to tan in. The tanning beds are top of the line, the place is immaculate and the staff is top notch. I am used to small hole in the wall tanning salons back home in Indiana. I did not expect such a nice, large beautiful tanning salon in Manhattan.

This salon stays open until midnight every night of the week. It is great for me as my shift ends at 11:00. A couple nights ago I called and was running late. Alicia was sweet enough to stay open until 12:30 so I could tan. She also told me I could go to the Beach Bum tanning at 86th street because they are open 24 hours. 24 hour tanning!!! Only in New York.

Cons: I wish they were 24 hours. 86th street is too far uptown

I just got air brush tanned and I was very impressed. I came in with a one week free coupon and tried some of their beds. I love the I-bed for traditional tanning. Alicia told me to try air brush tanning and I thought I would get orange. I did not! The tan is great. I still like traditional tanning better but this is a great tanning alternative

was thoroughly impressed with how I was helped at this tanning salon. Jennifer helped me select my package with no sales pressure. she recommended my tanning package and tanning lotion and I could not be happier with my tanning results. I used the p90 last night and my tan was even and just got better as the night went on.

from the minute I walked into this tanning salon I knew it was different. The look is pretty, the tanning beds are spectacular and the tanning lotion selection is well done. They did not have the tanning lotion I am used to using in New Jersey (HOT tanning lotion by Austrailian Gold) and they special ordered it for me the next day. Now that is service.

I think this has to be the best tanning salon in the city. I have tanned at several salons before and this relly changes my perception of a tanning salon. the tanning beds were spotless and the bathrooms (i need a clean bathroom) sparkled. I am a student at NYU and they worked with me on price.

I have tried every bed in here: the p90, the sunboard, the I-bed. Everyone of them has exceeded my expectations. I have never tried such great beds. It is nice to be able to try different beds every time. Margaret, the salesperson, told me that it is best to try the different beds. I used to only use the p90 but now that i have tried them all, my color is a lot more balanced.

I tan at the Beach Bum Tanning in East Meadow. LI when I am at school (Hofstra). They told me my tanning package could transfer to any store when I am home for the summer in Manhat tan. I was concerned about another tanning salon being as good as the Beach Bum Tanning in East Meadow. I was pleasantly surprised. The level of service was outstanding. The sales people were very helpful. I had told them I tanned at another Beach Bum Tanning. They still insisted on giving me a tour and making me feel at home. I will never tan anywhere else. Beach Bum Tanning is as great in Manhattan as in Long Island.

The best airbrush tan in the city. They also sell the touch up sunless tanning product on the shelves so you can tan at home and the color is the same. I had a date last Friday and was nervous about the results. I have to say, they were perfect and so was my tan. I was also able to touch up my tan for Sunday brunch with my sister's family.

This is the place for tanning. Located right on 14th street close to all shopping, and union square. They have top of the line tanning beds with aroma therapy and misters. I heard from the manager that they change their bulbs at 70% of their life time, so you are guaranteed to get a nice tan every time you are there.

I had a tanning emergency this past week. I was in a wedding and the bride forgot to mention all the other bridesmaids were sun goddesses.. A friend referred me to Beach Bum and I arrived with little hope. The staff was righ on the money with my tan, they evaluated my skin, gave me some choices on some tanning beds and away I went. After only a few sessions i looked amazing! The sunless tanning they have there also is incredible! Thanks Beach Bum!

I just bought a package from Beach Bum, and already I have the best color! They truly have the best selection of beds, for the best prices in the city. I had called to find out prices, and they actually gave me a choice of 1 week tanning for 17$ dollars, or a full month for $29.95! After the beds gave me a terrific color in such a short time, I bought a package in a ""high pressure bed"". I spend very little time in this type of bed, and it gives me the best color i've ever had. The staff is extremely well trained, and answered every question I had about tanning (and I had alot of questions!). The salon itself is very well located, and is as clean as clean can get. I highly recommend this salon!

finding a gem is Manhattan, New York is rare. Everyone is so rushed. Tanning is a great 15 minute escape a couple times a week. I like being able to spend that time at a clean, well run place. As far as tanning salons in Manhattan go, I am glad I found this one.

No need to try another place in Manhattan (I tried them all!) If you want amazing color, great customer service and beautiful surroundings, this is the place!!! Thanks Beach Bum!!!

tanning. it is great being able to tan late at this Beach Bum tanning. I get off work at 11:00 and I can still make it in for a tan. If I am running late I can go to the 86th street Beach Bum tanning because they are open 24 hours. It is very convenient to be able to yse my package at any Beach Bum tanning location to take advantage of all the options.

This is one of the cleanest best run tanning salons we have ever been to. I saw the ad in Next Magazine and had to try it out. I had been tanning further uptown but I am glad I tried this tanning salon. It is close to my apartment and my favorite bars. Staff was super helpful too!

Pros: Cleanest tanning salon ever

I have been going to this salon for 3 months and feel that it is the best I have ever seen. The tanning beds are very clean and the floors are spotless. There is nothing worse than going into a tanning salon and feeling that it is not clean. I am happy I found this tanning salon. The sunless booth is great too.

What a great, lovely experience I had at Beach Bum Tanning. The Sunboard is a great tanning bed. I have also tanned on the P90 and was equally impressed. i am just impressed at the selection of tanning beds and the quality of service at this tanning salon.
