I bought a groupon two days ago and booked a massage for today. The woman at the front desk identified herself as Isobel, who I knew to be the same person who had made the reservation on Sunday. She said that they no longer took Groupons

I saw their ad on Spa Week for a 70 minute hot stone massage. It sounded great so I made an appt despite all the bad reviews I read. Most of them were years old so I decided to give them a chance. Hey things change.

I got a 90 min. massage at Aqua Vitaes Spa and had a pretty good experience. The space itself is calming and clean. After a long week of work. This was an absolute treat!!!\r

I will never return to this "Spa".

I am 38 weeks pregnant and visibly so. I worked standing on my feet all day and then rushed here right after work for some rest and retreat. I rang the buzzer several times to no answer. Luckily I had the number still in my cell phone so I could call them to let me in. When I got into the spa a second level walk up, I was less than impressed. The establishment is is a mom and pop business(nothing wrong with that). But the space is very small, almost claustrophobic. There is not much decorum. It was actually a very cluttered space. So right there, not the best atmosphere. The person at the desk (also the owner) was ringing out one of her two customers. After she finished up with the previous client, she barely acknowledged me before I had to approach her counter to tell her what I was there for. I was not asked if I needed refreshment of water or the like. There was no offering of any kind. I asked where the bathroom was and she took me to it, a small cluttered bathroom that was a little unclean.

I had arrived 5 minutes early to my treatment and though there were only two clients there at the time who were both leaving I waited for a half hour before I was brought in for services. I was serviced by both the owner and her one other aesthetician for a facial and an eye brow wax. I asked about how much the eye brows would cost before hand and the owner stated she'd have to see how much work it would be and that she'd be doing it. This was odd to me since my eyebrows are already very sparse, just in need of some refining. While she was doing my brows she made "small talk" by asking if I'd be having my baby in the Bronx. I don't live in the Bronx I live around 98th street in Manhattan. She made an assumption because I am African American I am guessing? But then I don't want to make assumptions. She seemed shocked when I told her what hospital I'd deliver at and said, "Wow you get to choose? That's a good hospital." She doesn't know my health insurance situation. What the heck does that mean and why is she saying this? Hmmm?

I'd asked for a mirror after the eye brow job but she never brought me one. When the first aesthetician came back in to rub my shoulders (that's the only massage I was offered "since you are so far along in your pregnancy" they claimed, "usually we'd do more") I asked for a mirror and then I saw the mess. I asked her to try and fix them. She herself said they were looking odd. So, The eyebrow wax was just plucking in the end, but I was charged 20 dollars for a very bad job. They ended up uneven and one was over plucked to the point you really couldn't do much to fix it.

In the end I opted to tip them 18 percent of the total price of my services, generous to me, since the eyebrows were a flop and one of the people who worked on me was unnecessary for what I was getting. (WHY does it take two people to do a facial and pluck some eyebrows?)That percentage was 12 dollars. However when I handed over my card, (it was the owner ringing me up) she said "Oh, is that 12 each? " That brought it up to 92 dollars. She quickly added ,"Why don't we just do 100", and proceeded to run my card without hesitation. I made her refund that last 8 dollars, though at that point I should have made the tip a lot less. I could not believe how brazen she was. It was, frankly, sheisty and rude. I work hard for my money like everyone else, and like to give tips as they are due!

Overall, BAD EXPERIENCE! It left me stressed for two days afterwards it should have done the opposite.

I have had several back waxing, but is nothing like SUGAR HAIR REMOVAL, my back area felt very nice and smooth for almost two months.

LOVE this place- great service, warm atmosphere and good price!!!!

I went to this spa under false pretenses. This was the first time I had a body scrub done and I would not do it here again. I was told this spa included a sauna and steamroom. When I got there I was told by another staff member that they do not have a spa or steam room. I was about to leave but then I said Im here so I might as well. During the body scrub I felt as if someone was rubbing sandpaper on my skin. The woman barely spoke English so there was a lack of communication. The only male worker in the spa kept lurking in the hall and I know he opened the door and peeked at me twice! It was a very uncomfortable experience.

My husband bought me a birthday gift certificate at Aque Vitae Spa. We are going away next week to Miami so I thought it would be wise to get waxed. Isabel did the sugar hair removal on me which is twenty times better than wax!!!! It was so clean and she only used one piece and she is obviously skilled in this procedure as my legs and bikini were looking good ladies!!!
I was so scared but it was not as painful as I thought!

Then I proceeded to the relaxing part and had a great hot stone massage treatment from Isabel...that was just heaven. I was then led to another room to have my facial by Nadine. She was so sweet and her touch is so relaxing, it put me to sleep. She educated me on my skin during extractions and the proper home care regimen. I think this was the best facial I ever had! She is truly a gem!

I cannot say enough about these two young ladies and the spa. So serene and water falling and nice plasma tvs. I guess the owners must have gone through different management and a new staff cuz reading the reviews below do not sound like the same place I was at.
I even booked again next month for my facial and sugar hair removal as I was recommended to come in once a month for maintenance and a road to healthy skin! Thankyou angels!

Seriously you guys , I don't know what those reviews are about. I guess they changed the staff because these two ladies were AMAZING! Yes they did educate me on the products but seriously what spa does not recommend you to buy something that is going to help benefit your skin!! I loved the sugar hair removal because Isabel whom really knows her stuff, only used this natural sugar (not shared!!) on me and I felt it was very clean and it stayed for weeks!

The hot/cold stone massage was an amazing experience and Isabel is the only one in New York , besides in Colorado and Pennsylvania that is doing this technique! Nadine did such a great job with the facial. It was very relaxing and my skin was glowing for weeks! She has an amazing touch and is very knowledgable! I can't wait for my next appointment with the two sweet ladies!

Everyone deserves a second chance, I believe these ladies are new! They are wonderful and sweet!

I joined Citysearch as a member JUST so I can warn people about the TERRIBLE massage at this place - there is this Romanian woman who is completely unskilled and untrained as a massage therapist. She basically slaps on body oil on your body and wipes it up and down. It was the most unpleasant awful massage ever. I could NOT wait for it to be over with. I was sorely tempted several times to just stop the massage and say "It's over."
That said, I had a pretty decent facial from the manager. I was having problems with break-outs and she managed to calm my skin down with the dermalogica products and some zapping instrument. Just don't get the massage!!

My appointment was for a 50 minute facial that was scheduled for 3pm. I didn't get into the room until 3:30pm. I think that they tried to make an attempt to make it up to me by giving me a foot rub, but my facial was terrible. It was supposed to be a deep-cleansing facial and it wasn't that at all. They literally washed my face, applied a mask and I was done!!! My facial probably took a total of 20 minutes. I was dressed and out of the room at 4pm!!! Then they proceeded to try to sell me every product under the sun. They were rude, not very knowledgeable and pushy!!!! DO NOT SPEND YOUR $$$ THERE

I went there for a facial. I do admit the facial was pretty decent but the service is absolutely horrible. First of all they are rude. They come off so strongly when you first meet them. Second they try to push all these products for double the price you can get online and when you say no to these products they come off saying that you are not serious about the facial and that she will give you an express one instead. They also treated me pretty rough during the facial. It was not relaxing whatsoever. At the end they pretend to be nice b/c they know you will be tipping them. Again the push their products at the end. Extremely dissatisfied!!!

I had the worst experience at this spa. The facialist claimed to have 25 years of experience and I came out with my eyes swollen because she exfoliated my eyes. What a HORRIBLE and TERRIFYING experience!!!! On the other hand, my massage was okay, but my friend had a bad experience with her masseuse. Her masseuse does not know the proper techniques of a massage. I think the majority of the staff is unlicensed and untrained and they have the audacity to called themselves a "SPA." We expected to come out relax, but we came out frustrated with the service!!!!! We will never go back again!!!

I made an appointment for a 50 min hot stone massage - for 6:00 p.m. on the 16th of October. Firstly, the ladies at the reception had no record of my appointment when I called on the day. After a lot of looking - they found my name. When I turned up for the appointment (20 min earlier than the scheduled massage) - the massage therapist took me to an automated machine for massage - saying that the stones were not available - and when they are - she would come and get me. She came around 6:10 - saying that we could now begin the session. I undressed and lay there for about 5-7 min before she turned up. Once the massage started, she had to pop out about 6 or 7 times ... finally, at 6:40 - she was done. I did not even get a whole 30 min of massage. On top of it, she chattered the entire time. When I went out to pay - I complained that I was very dissapointed. The lady said "Instead of 50 min - you got 45 min" I said "NO, I did not get even 45 minutes because you left the room about 6 to 7 times." She said "I will charge you less". She charged me $50, the advertised price. I am definitely going to let my friends and collegues know how terrible the quality of service and employees are

I went to this salon for a sugar bikini wax. They promised me over the phone it would NOT hurt, so naturally, this being my first time, I believed them. Well, it was a lie. Fine! I must say that she did a fantastic job. She left my bikini area so smooth and beautiful.(This was the owner who did the waxing.) She was very nice to me and pleasant. The ambience is nice, but nothing to brag about. I also had a massage done. Would NOT go back for that.

I finally found a spa that really, really focuses on my skincare needs. I have been to so many spas that the esthetcian barely speaks to you. These estheticians really talk to you and find out what your skincare concerns are. I have been there 4 times now, and can really see a difference in the overall health and appearence of my skin.
I would highly recommend this spa to anyone!

I visited Aqua Vitae Spa recently, and really enjoyed my experience. The atmosphere was very friendly and quite relaxing. The facial was one of the best I have recieved.

Unreliable, poor management, bad service. Made an appointment twice and both times spa was either closed or the massage therapist never showed up! there was no apology or concern. Manager was irresponsible and did not show any concern of this matter. I would not reccomend visiting this site. Too many other reputable spas in the area to waste your time on this one!

If you even think about going to this place you should seriously reconsider. It was the worst experience I have ever had at a spa in new york. The staff is very rough and abrupt. If you would like to speak with a manager he/she is no where to be found and the staff is very protective about the identity of their manager. I can go on and on about how horrible my experience at this spa was but I will leave it short just like the service and the massage.

Went to Aqua Vitae for a massage it was disappointing. Massage: 3/4 stars The massage in itself was fine, but the Service: 1/4 stars was quite unsatisfactory. They were shorthanded so everyone was running around. My 1 hour massage turned into 30 minutes. The woman kept leaving the room for long periods of time she kept making excuses blahblah but in the end, they still charged me for the full hour and made no real apology.

Cons: service, lateness, staff
