So disappointed.......When I go to a spa, I'm there to relax and feel good not to be battered by (I think) Marda and her broken english !!!
My friend got me a gift at feline's,I was so happy but that din't last to long. Why? The facialist kept asking my what products I use and when I told her for the next hour or so all I did was listen to her telling me how my face will get bad If I don't use what products she recommends. Which is their products.
It used to be that when I was on a holiday abroad or perhaps Palm Springs I would avail myself of special spa treatments. Now I need not wait as I have such an upscale spa right here in NYC close to home.
Visually Feline Day Spa is serene & the practitioners are lovely & accommodating. The massages are luxurious & it is a MUST DO treat for myself & friends who come in from out of town.
That said my absolute favorite treatment are the facials that I have with Sea. Sea is a consummate professional. Not only does she do an impeccable job of clearing up my skin but throws in a relaxing neck and shoulder massage for good measure. What can I say? For me Sea's facials have now become ""APPOINTMENT WORTHY"" every few months as I always emerge from her treatments fully rejuvenated and renewed.
On Mothers Day I got a gift certificate from my kids to Felines for a facial.And then I met Lucina and the facial she gave me was really relaxing. With her amazing touch\r
my Mothers Day turn into the best I ever had!
Was gifted a ""special package"" for a massage, mini-facial and spa mani/pedi. The first 2 went well but the last was almost a disaster! To start, the woman wasn't all that friendly and didn't know I was there for a spa mani/pedi. Then it just got worse. The massage on my feet and hands lasted about 1 minute and every question I asked was answered with ""an attitude""!! Bye, bye Felines.....there's so many other really good spas there's no need to return to yours!
I had an overall nice experience there. Great massage and friendly staff. I would recommend this to others.
The estheticians at Feline are wonderfull ladies, and they are proffecionals with a lot of expierience. and please don't put a bad review as a vendetta just because your ego got hurt . Get over it and be happy someone told you the truth ..otherwise all that frowning will give you more wrinkles and you'll have more to complain about.
Very good massage
My original post was deleted by the owner of this salon who contacted citysearch. I am starting to wonder if this is truly an unbiased review site. \r
So I will stick to the unarguable facts of my personal experience at this salon:\r
1. I felt better before going to the salon than I did after.\r
2. I will not go back to this salon.\r
3. This salon is the only salon that I have reviewed so far that replies to negative comments on Citysearch accusing people of posting fake comments.\r
4. I do not think these are nice people running this salon.\r
5. I have been to better salons in NYC and feel that this one is mediocre. If they were not mediocre, I feel that they would not spend all of their time on Citysearch arguing with customers who are unhappy with their service. \r
I have reviewed the Citysearch policy and everything in this email is in line with that policy. \r
I'm sure the salon will respond that it is not them it is me, only in support of bullet #5. \r
I have been a client for many years. I recommend the nail care and I frequenly go for massages. My favorite masseuse is Iwona; she is fabulous, really fabulous.\r
As a spa aficionado; frequenting the most luxurious and elite spa's that Manhattan has to offer; Feline Day Spa ranks as # 1 in my book. \r
The cozy and warm atmosphere matches the staffs attentiveness as they attended to my every needs and desires. I was also impressed with how long the staff has been with the spa and their devotion to it. \r
The massage I received was incredible, my manicure and pedicure lasted longer than any other I had received. My day at this wonderful spa was capped off by the most amazing and relaxing body scrub and facial ever. Feline Day Spa is beyond awesome!
I AM A 31 YEAR OLD MALE WHO TRAVELS FROM NEW JERSEY TO NYC TO SEE LANA AT FELINE DAY SPA, FOR EYEBROW TREADING. SHE ALWAYS DOES A TERRIFIC JOB AND ENSURES THAT MY EYEBROWS LOOK CLEAN, NEAT, AND NATURAL WHEN FINISHED. FOR ANY GUYS OUT THERE CONSIDERRING GETTING YOUR EYEBROWS DONE, CHECK OUT LANA AT FELINE DAY SPA! TRUST ME, YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!
Feline Day Spa is ideal, because it combines luxury services with utility and expertise. I go mostly for facials--make sure to book with Alexandra or Lucina, as they are wonderful at extractions!--but I've also had waxing and nails, which are also expertly done. The service is top notch, and, despite the luxurious facility, there is little hint of snobbery. The one time I had to wait for my appointment because of an overbooked schedule, the receptionists were quite apologetic and offered me a manicure on the house while I waited.
Make sure to ask for the algae or seaweed masks as part of your facial--they are an additional $20 or so, but absolutely worth it. The showers are clean and well stocked with products--though the treatment rooms themselves are a bit cramped (but that's New York--space at a premium). Overall, a great spa to get away for relaxation or helpful treatments.
The great thing about Feline Day Spa is that they were able to book me an appointment for a brazilian and full lex wax two hours beforehand. Unfortunately, it added up to 130 dollars.... 160 dollars with tip. I couldn't see well while I was there but when I got home, upon further inspection, my leg was not waxed properly. The hairs were not taken out from the roots- instead it was extremely short because the hairs were ripped off. And mind you this is the day before an event I had to attend.
The only pros of this place is the availability (go figure) and it's kept quite clean. It also has a nice ambiance... just don't make a appointment for any of their waxing services.
I have had many massages at various spas and resorts. My massage at the Feline Day Spa was among the best I have ever had and I can't wait to go back. I just made another appointment.
Pros: Relaxing atmosphere, excellent service
I have been going to Feline Day Spa for more than 20+ years and have enjoyed many of the services they offer. I do not feel like client but rather their guest. Feline is a top-shelf day spa.\r
The spa is spotless, well-kept and a relaxing place to visit. Each and every service I have had at Feline has been a wonderful experience. From a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure that friends ask where I go so they can go as well. Voila so blooms a new Feline guest. A Feline gift card, in a beautifully wrapped box, is always a perfect gift that will be appreciated and enjoyed very much.\r
Feline is a warm and caring day spa. Ingvor, the owner of Feline, and her professional staff, who work their magic, would like to invite you to a relaxing, stress-free and pampered experience. \r
Feline is a beautiful day spa located on the upper west side. The many services they offer should be taken advantage of. I look forward to my appointments - they are the most tranquil part of my day.\r
Pros: A profession Day Spa with great menu of services
for facials, waxing, and massages, this is the best place i've been to on the uws. all of the technicians are skillful and courteous; the atmosphere is low-key and inviting; they're always very accommodating with appointment times. the only drawback is that you do pay for what you're getting; i wouldn't call it a bargain. i think it's worth it, though!
Pros: comfortable, low-key, wonderful services
Cons: not cheap
My friend Josh bought me a gift card to Feline Day Spa. He has been coming here for years and always raves about their Manicures and facials so I was excited to receive the gift card. I used it for a massage and loved every minute of it! It was heaven on earth! The staff is so friendly and experienced! Josh was right! What a great gift!
Got my girl a Gift Certificate here for her bday and yeah, that worked. She felt great, looked great, came home shining. One of the best gifts I've given her. Highly recommended.
Pros: Makes you look goooood
I had the most amazing pedicure with foot massage followed by a top of the line facial called Skin Bella. Marta who treated me made me look younger and fresher and massaged neck, arms or hands whilst the treatments were working away. A truly fabalous time. \r
Pros: Full attention and amazing results
Cons: It is New York and I live in Brussels ;(
I was so impressed by my whole experience at what is now my favorite spa. I loved everything about it from my perfect manicure (I've never had one last so long), to the most relaxing pedicure with comfy leather chairs that actually massage properly, and a facial with the most amazing hands ever! I can't wait to go back!
Pros: Highly skilled staff, intimate ambiance, quality products
This place is a real gem. I came here together with a group of friends from LA, Vancouver and Brussels. We all agreed that the treatments were the best we had ever received and we are all frequent spa visitors! We all got manicures and pedicures in new state-of-the-art spa leather chairs and after two of us got massages and waxes and the other two had facials. After our treatments were done we were so excited we couldn't stop talking about our experiences. We all agreed that our visit to Felines day Spa was the best part of our NY trip!!!
Pros: massage excellence, friendly staff, beautiful interiour
Just tried Feline for the first time last night and I loved every second of it! We are going back on friday to try some new treatments - there is no other spa in NYC worth my time or money!!! \r
THANK YOU FELINE SPA
Pros: great atmosphere, excellent staff
It was a gift I gave to my mom. She absolutely loved her experience there it was awesome. She felt like a princess for the day, and that made me happy. Now its time for me to make an appointment :)
Pros: Staff is very helpful and attentive!!
I have been wanting to try LaStone massage for quite some time now and when I saw that Feline Day Spa offered it, I made an appointment immediately. At first I was hesitant because the desk staff didn't seem familiar with the treatment, but once I met Lucina and got on her table, my doubts drifted away and so did I. She is very knowledgeable of this particular type of massage as well as the stones, and she helped me stay focused on what was happening. I will definitely be booking this treatment again and recommend that everyone try it.
Pros: They offer LaStone Massage (and facial)
Cons: A little too much of a salon feel in the waiting room.
A very cozy spa boutique where the staff is wonderful. Helena, the esthetician who took care of me was great. I highly recommend the salon, it feels like a homy neighborhood hotel to escape to.
NOTE TO THE OWNER: If my dermatologist hadn't recommended this spa I would have walked out. The air ventilation system has to be turned on or updated - it smelled like I was inside a steamroom smelling nail polish remover. Also, perhaps you could advise your staff to discuss facial problems as a mini consultation B4 the facial. I was so relaxed that I did not pay attention to comments! Massage - I could have done without, but it's extra right? I paid for facial, not back neck, chest massage, hand circulation treatment, sample take home packets etc... Overall I rate staff 5/5, results of products 6/5 and ambiance 4/5.
Pros: staff uses expensive products, results in less than 24hrs!
Cons: maybe I came at a bad time...
Went to the spa yesterday to have a treatment..Alex was excellent! The people at the front desk couldn't have been nicer...I have seen in past reviews that the people here can be rude, but in my past visits I felt they were really tring to make some changes...On with the story.. I was checking out...One of the spa workers came up next to me at the front desk...I thought it was my technician Alex..I went to hand her a tip...(Please keep in mind that throughout the treatment I did not have my glasses on...so therefore couldnt see so well)\r
She said in a very rude voice I am not Alex...I said, Im sorry,perhaps you look like her...the spa worker replies, I hope not! in a very rude manner...there was nothing but awkward silence from the front desk people and the client on the other side of me...She was so unpleasant and I was so embarrased...it left such a bad taste in my mouth...I would never be this unkind to a stranger, much less a client..This is why I wrote the review...I decided not to let it go this time...this woman ruined what was a very lovely break for me....I will never go back...Too bad, because I live in the neighborhood...And.....why was this woman so derogatory towards a fellow worker??? It was a very awkward moment with no sound except crickets, because everyone was shocked she was so rude....I would have expected the front desk people to say something, however I think they were as stunned by I was by how nasty this woman was...Too bad and bye bye
Pros: Services are great
Cons: Bad attitudes
This is a fabulous, high end boutique spa. The service is wonderful and the manis/pedis are great. The new pedicure chairs are to-die-for.... sometimes I want to go just for the chair! My mom had a fantastic massage, but I've only ever had nail services. It's comfortable and calm... a great escape on the Upper West Side.
Pros: wonderful service, brand new pedicure chairs
Cons: it's small, so sometimes hard to get an appointment
Everyone is very pleasant. The atmosphere is calm without going over the top.
Pros: Great manicure/pedicure
Really nice group of people. great facial I got from joanna, lovely lady.\r
Owner on phone so accomdating. Makes you feel good to see some people still care and believe in customer service and making a regular out of you . My friends have gone here for years. Well done place. Hear strong massage is by Jung?\r
Will be back. Very nice sotheys facial.....then right after that,check out the fairway for some organic foods:):))\r
great location....will be back:) ask for joanna....\r
Pros: Clean open nice....
Cons: be nice to sauna or steam:)
This is my mainsty spa. It is dependable.
Pros: deal prices
Cons: ok ambience
very proffessional! Very affordable!!
The 60 dollar bill for the bikini was was not worth it. I also ended up with streaks of wax on my leg, which was hard to get off.
i love their manicures...they have great hospitality and the place looks amazing
Pros: Great service and wonderful results
Me and my friend decided spontaneous to go to the spa. We had an appointment 3 hours later. We decided on the early summer special: facial, massage and manicure.
The facial was the worst. The lady first told me that I have acne ... witch I know. She kept on asking me what kind of products I use and everything I said was not good enough for her. She gave me the feeling that I don't take care of myself.
The worst was, that she kept on telling me almost the whole hour, that my skin will get worst when I turn 30.
After such a treatment I felt mentally worse than before.
Yes, I do have problems with my skin. I watch what I eat and I just use special products but giving me the feeling I don't take care of myself and picturing my future with pimples all over my face was not really relaxing.
If I want to talk to someone I go to a hair salon. But when I get a facial, and the lady is working on my face, than how could we have a conversation? Your hands are in my face. I hardly can speak. I am there to relax. Not to listen to your story.
Afterwards the massage was really good. The only thing was the music. But hey, some people like it some not.
The manicure was O.K. I just had the feeling that they want us out. So they rushed.
What I also don't liked was the smell in the locker room. It was clean! but the smell of this -I don't even think it was a air refreshener- was just not good. I still can remember it. I also don't liked that you have to wait in your bathrobe (you are almost without cloth underneath) next to the front desk. But this is a logistic problem.
Anyway, I am not going back, because there are a lot more out there to explore. (might be worst might be better) And I hope I will find a spa where you have a peaceful facial.
Cons: Smell in the loker room, cosmeticia likes to talk
They give the best Brazilian waxes! I also love their massages, spa pedicures and i especially LOVE their hot cream manicures! they pamper you like no other spa
Pros: best customer service!
Cons: no cons
This spa is the best one on the upper west side. Attentive staff, and the spa services are simply great.
everyone from my office goes to this spa; the facials are awesome and the cellulite treatments seem to work - a friend tried them and she had amazing results.
Pros: variety of services
Cons: a little pricey but worth it
The staff is so attentive, ready and willing to help that its so relaxing the minute you step in. Always like going there when i get the chance..
Pros: good staff
Since I have been having manicures with Leann, my nails have become healthy. I love how diligent, knowledgeable and delightful Leann is. She has made wonderful recommendations to help my nails grow, always in a quiet, assured way.
Pros: Relaxing scene
I've read many positive reviews of Feline Salon Spa here on Citysearch, so when Spa Week came up, I decided to take a chance on Feline. I've only been to a spa once before and therefore don't have much of a baseline for comparison. I also used this as an opportunity to shop around for my go-to day spa without spending a ton of money. I figured if a Spa Week client was treated well, a regular patron would be treated even better.
Leanne was my aesthetician and even though I'm not used to being rubbed by strangers, she didn't make me feel like a dork. She also immediately understood (without my having to tell her) that I didn't want to chat. The only time I felt uncomfortable was during the extraction part of my facial but in the end, it was worth it; for the first time in years, I'm blackhead-free! After my body scrub, I felt like I'd molted- the skin that was revealed after the scrub is so soft!
The areas I saw were very clean, though I was a bit disturbed to see that their flip-flops are used by multiple wearers. Who knows if the person before me had a foot fungus?
Overall, I really enjoyed my treatments at Feline and am definitely planning to go back. The worst part about the experience was that it too chilly and rainy for me to show off my well-scrubbed and glowing self!
Pros: Friendly, professional, relaxing, no product pushing
Cons: Flip-flops are worn by multiple people
I received a gc at my baby shower and began using the services months after my daughter was born. The massage I had from one of the gentleman was deep and strong but he seemed to be an auto... ie told him I wanted certain areas worked on but they did not get any more attention than others. \r
The facial from Denise (?) was very good. No pushing products either. \r
And the reflexology pedicure I had from a woman with long nails was horrible because her nails were so long she couldn't even apply pressure properly. I should have asked for someone else when I saw that it wasn't working out. I think this spa asks its clients to review here so it tends to skew the results imo since the regulars will all say they like it. Overall, a good place to have on the uws.
Pros: Location, variety of offerings
Cons: some practitioners better than others
Great service, perfect location. Love Dorota for the bikini waxes- very quick, thorough, professional.
Pros: staff, ambience, service
Cons: sometimes crowded
I have been to Feline several times for deep tissue massages by Jang... she is incredible and super sweet and personable. I always leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. The bread, water, juice and strawberries afterwards are a nice treat. Thanks to Jang and Feline for a great experience every time.
Pros: Clean, professional, relaxing
By far i had the best facial ever.. I`ve been around the city and tried alot of facials and finally i found someone who understands my needs and my skin never looked better. I had Leanne and i highly recommend her.. The products she recommended are also great. I also love the place and i will be returning!!
I was offered a gift of a half-day beauty at this wonderful spa, and was simply delighted at how professional, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly the entire staff was to me and the other clientele. My experience was similar to the first-class treatments I have experienced in Europe. This is a perfect destination for both large and small treatments, such as manicure/pedicure and facials.
I love Feline, hidden away on west 75th street. This has the BEST MANICURE in town. May not be cheap but if you want a great manicure that lasts go there!! They have it all Waxing, Facials, Massages, Manicures and Pedicures> The people are nice and the place is clean!!
I treated myself to a manicure. The hot cream was fabulous and it lasted a really long time.--Highly recommended
I've been going to Feline since I moved to the area 1 1/2 years ago. I go every 6 weeks for a Brazilian bikini wax. I have never had a bad experience. They always squeeze me in last minute if I haven't made an appointment. When you get there, there's always coffee and water and clean restrooms. Also, the waxing never hurts! My last visit I was waxed by Sia. She used this organic wax called nufree finpil. It didn't hurt at all, even in the most sensitive areas and I wasn't red after at all. It was actually a really relaxing experience, which is unusual for a wax, that's for sure. I also once got a massage there. It was reasonably priced, not rushed, and I felt great afterward. I recommend Feline to all of my friends for waxing and massages and any other spa needs.
Pros: pleasant staff, excellent services
I had such a pleasant experience at Feline. I am always nervous about getting waxes done, but before I knew it the wax was over! No pain, I couldn't believe it! If you are planning to get a wax done, I highly recommend Sia Manis. She makes you feel very comfortable and at home, and also uses the Nufree Nudesse Finipil wax, which is unlike any other wax I've tried in that it leaves the skin smooth with no sticky feeling, and it is pain-free. The staff is incredibly friendly and you truly feel pampered!
