Spent a wonderful night at Juvenex with my girlfriend. This place is very sexy~. We relaxed here and received massage and body scrub. After it was all done we were so relaxed we could hardly walk. My girlfriend kept falling asleep in the elevator. Anyways, I recommend this spa to any spa lovers in nyc.
What a bad review for such a great spa! I'm a long time customer at Juvenex and this place is awesome~! I go here whenever I feel like I had put too much stress on myself. I love the atmosphere and the great facial by Heidi. Thanks Heidi for taking care of me and my daughter's skin~! We love it~!
Sorry to hear the bad comment, but I always have a wonderful time here. Been going here for couple of years now with my girlfriends at daytime and with my boyfriend at night time. I think there's no other spas like this.. They have great body scrub and the facilty is just awesome!! Beautiful place and great service!
Juvenex Spa is a very relaxing place to go with your husband !
We enjoyed the massage for two. It was so relaxing and I will
go back again.
The service was great! It is a very professional place.
It is also very clean and is scented with very nice
You should try it , I am sure you will enjoy it.
A friend and I went to this spa, thinking it would be a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. We were wrong...
the staff were not very accommodating, and frankly, we felt uncomfortable thee. We also asked for massages and were given them in the same room, right next to each other. Very uncomfortable, and very weird. It was also very expensive. Don't go.
Loved the whole jade experience. I loved the body scrub by Heidi. She was fantastic! \r
I think it's great value for the services and the treatment for what i paid. It's definitely worth trying juvenex spa. \r
I'll leave one star out, because I thought there are little bit of room to grow. \r
Overall, I recommend this spa for everyone!
This spa was diffferent from many other spas i've been to. They are bigger in scale compared to other spas in manhattan. We got there when the couples' hours began, so vibe seemed to be more sexy. \r
Great body scrub. This Korean body scrub was unique because they used milk on my body. I literally felt my entire skin rejuvenating. I think that's why it's named Juvenex. Rejuvenate? \r
I'd definitely recommend you guys visiting this spa. I loved it! Definitely going back.
My friend gave me gift card for the Christmas and I finally visited Juvenex. What a fantastic service! I loved the body scrub along with one hour facial. I literally left this place glowing! \r
Absolutely wonderful place. Excellent service!
The staff is very friendly and experienced. I will go back again. Thanks!
Of all my 5 years going to juvenex spa, I was never so ill treated. Their facility and the facial treatment by kim are always fantastic, however the Russian manager who works in the front desk was horrible. Her greeting turn into a debate over 35dollars that is added with other services if you also wants to use the facilities. I care less about the cost as long as I get the relaxation. That's why people go to spas, not to argue. She became aggressive. I ended up paying for my express facial and using the facility for 20 mins or so as I always have. Finally what made it worst was she made a comment in front of me in Russian to another russian staff. Never did I felt so offended and disempowered. That is a cowardly act. I don't think anything will be done about it. She seems the be the only one that speaks fluent English there. I am very disappointed. I could not imagine being treated this way especially a Korean Spa, who are known for their quality customer service. I tried to complained but it's pretty obvious the owner is not going to do anything about it. After made aware, no action was done. I go there and have always refer my friends there. I'll think twice before I'll go there again.
Most of the spas in new york city these days have no saunas. How could they call that spa? I wanted to go to a spa with full experience and juvenex spa was perfect. Extreme igloo dry sauna was awesome! \r
Great massage and great customer service. I recommend this spa to everyone.
The new aesthetician is great! I forgot her name, but it started with C... I hope that helps... she was young korean lady. she said she works mostly during the daytime. This is couple of times I went to juvenex, and today was the best day! I give 5 stars to juvenex cuz you made my day! And a vote for your spa!
Body scrub was just beautiful. VEry soothing and relaxing and at the same time I was left with glowing skin. It was very satifying experience and would recommend it anyone who hasn't had a body scrub before. Definitely juvenex is the one to have one.
My husband and I spent nice night at this spa. After dinner, we made sure all our foods were digested before we went to the spa. We were impressed by the level of service and the quality. The body scrub was excellent and loved the feeling of exfoliation. Great spa!!
We had wonderful relaxing time at juvenex. The services were great and we left refreshed. We'll go back.
I was here with four of my friends last week. We were able to get massage together and we didn't have to separate. This was the only spa where groups can get the massage together in one room. They had a big room for the group massage. It was more fun.
I was here on Monday afternoon before the co-ed time begins and it was very quiet. I've never been to a full spa before but I thought this place was great. It was bit pricey but then all other spas in nyc are pricey when I see their menus.\r
I loved the massage. It was very relaxing and stress-relief. I'd go back here to try some other services like body scrub as other people say it's very good.
I am just stopping by to write a review because I've been to this place many times, but stopped going. The services were ok, the interior was ok, but the receptionist was rude. Even though I was there for few times, they made me feel unwanted. The way they talk to the customer was not acceptable compared to other luxury spas. I still remember her name, but won't mention it here. Hope she's fired!
Me and my friends received body scrub here together. Great!
Good spa. Unique saunas.\r
I've been a returning customer for few years now, and a vip customer. I love the services I get from juvenex spa. Recently, I've been seeing negative comments about juvenex. As a business owner myself, I think the hateful retalitory comment writers should be tracked down at some point. It's too bad see to such a nice spa getting abused by who-knows-who.
Yesterday, my husband and I received asian body scrub for the first time at juvenex. Such a soothing experience it was! Our entire body was exfoliated and left with clean glowing skin. We were kind of excited and little bit scared of the idea, but we've regreted if we haven't done it. I recommend body scrub to all the citysearch members.\r
Juvenex spa has great service, nice people, and overall great interior. We told the owner that we'd write a great review on the citysearch and she was so excited. Cute.\r
The place was packed last night with so many beautiful people. It was eye pleasing and soul refreshing experience. Thanks Juvenex! - Deborah
Had a full day of perfect massage, mani, pedicure, wax, facial, everything so perfect. Take my recommendation.
I came from Seoul, Korea, it was very hard to find good massage place. I like hard pressured massage and when I asked for that, that is what I got. It can be painful for some people, but I like the hard massages. \r
I also liked the body scrub. They said they redone the body scrub area to make it feel more like home. The interior was very nice even though some areas still needed fixing.\r
It was truly one of the favorite spa I experienced. Very nice.
AWESOME! True asian beautiness in spa! I was refreshed. My stress level down to zero!
I walk in and I'm greeted by someone who actually speaks english. you know a lot of places in koreatown strip don't have english speaking workers..hahaha.. anyways.. my gf loved the whole atmosphere, relaxing moments we had.. \r
i recommend this place compared to other spas that seems less luxurious. it definitely was luxury spa for me. \r
I wished they updated some of the interiors. they told me they are doing renovation for the fall and december. i'll definitely be back.
Hey, we had such a good time! Thanks Juvenex Spa! \r
They treated us like how we wanted to be treated as a couple. I'm writing this because they saved my relationship. My girlfriend loved every minute.
Pros: Friendly service, fresh fruits, intimate settings for us
Cons: little bit of wait
Nice spa with Asian theme, very nice decor. Lots of options to choose from, good for couples.
Pros: clean, comfortable
Cons: can be a wait
Worst eyebrow waxing ever!\r
It was last sat one of the waxing ladies butchered my eyebrows when i came in for a waxing. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE\r
Pros: clean and friendly
Cons: they cannot do eyebrows at all
Great facial with kemmy\r
I've tried facials all around the city and finally found one that I loved. Very relaxing, great environment, and my esthetician (I believe kemmy) was great. My skin glowed for a week, through a bunch of flights and a trip to the mountains.
I like this place because as for being a regular customer, price negotiation is possible. Yesterday was my birthday and Juvenex gave me and my friends a good discount. They treated us so well we all left the place happy. It had been 6 years since my friends and I are coming to Juvenex. Along the years we became close friends.\r
Pros: Courteous, Nice accomodation and amenity
Went to this spa recently with 8 women. we were not prepared for what this spa had to offer. \r
1) first we were offered dirty flip flops, i was expecting paper slippers. \r
2) Changing room is in the middle a common area divided by shades. \r
3) showers out in the open in common area, mind you this spa becomes co-ed after 5pm so yes, everyone will see you. \r
4) rooms, you will not have a room to your self for your massage. there were 3 massage tables and 1 queen size bed in my room and yes, i shared the room with some one else getting a massage. \r
5) music- they had the radio on, no zen like music. \r
6) massage was rough, they jumped on my back, needless to say I need a massage after the massage. \r
7) immediately after they were like ""come, come go to go"" SMH. no time to sit there and relax.
Pros: ffresh fruit, fresh water, exotic teas.
Cons: Everythin a con
Juvenex is a great place for hanging out with friends. I went there with four of my friends just to check out the place and i was surprised that we could all stay right away and have five massages at the same time. You can go there without having an appointment, enjoy time together in soaking tubs full of lemons and get complimentary champagne. It is really relaxing place. They have amazing herbal steam sauna and detoxification room, where you can lay down, relax and even fall asleep if you are tired and nobody will wake you up and tell you it is time to go home. Full freedom. They serve great fruits and rice tea . They also have private jacuzzi room for couples. Really awesome spa. Perfect place, anytime you think you need to escape from crowded and stressful new york city.
hello, since what i experienced in this place was quite different than others, thought i should drop a line... last week my boy friend and i were hanging out in the city and spontaneously we decided to visit juvenex. it was pretty late at night and eventhough we didn't have any reservation, the place had private vip room available for us. it was certainly an unique and wonderful time. we both enjoyed from the beginning to the end. the accomodation was perfect-with bathing suites and all the things we needed.\r
therapists were great. we both relaxed at the end. complimentary fruites and teas-it was just so worth to spend money.\r
i really thanked the therapists for releasing tense in our muscle. she knew it exactly how i should be treated.\r
Pros: the best place for pampering
My boyfriend and I went for one of their couples packages last night. When you walk in, you get a great receptionist. The good stuff ends there. You get a dirty pair of flip flops and then your boot camp coach comes in. Ours shoved us in a room to change and then, was pressuring us to get out and get in the shower. After that, she ushered us along into the sauna and then, the steam room. There was hair everywhere, no toilet paper, and no soap at the sink.
If you want to have a great bonding, laughing time with your partner, it is great. Every time our ""woman"" would push us somewhere else, we would giggle like children. She would scold us for taking too long at one place or another. We went into our bath and 12 minutes later, they were knocking on the door, and asking us to drop our pants for the massage.
My 5 year old gives better massages...but, it was still funny to have this woman crawling on my back and thumping my toes. I will say that your nether regions are quite exposed during the whole massage. My boyfriend was showing all of his goods during most of the massage as was I. The best part is that once they are finished, they are pushing you up and off the table to get you to leave. There is no dawdling and forget going to the bathroom.
If you have an extra $395 and you want to have a total boot camp experience...but, laugh your butt off, this is the place for you. Just watch out for all the hair, random pieces of funk, and floating scum in the soaking tubs.
Pros: Great fruit!
Cons: dirty, rude and inexperienced staff, rushed!
My wife and I decided to visit this spa over the weekend. We regularly recieve 2plus massages a week being that I am a massage therapist. I was actually very disappointed. From the begining we had no sense of direction. They assume I have been to their facility before. We both just waited several times before they noticed and told us what to do next. First they send us to the showers...the showers are ""open"" showers. My wife and I feeling a lil uncomfortable ..her more then me. There wasnt even a place to place your extra tight non fitting robe that they provide for you. Some showers didnt even have any shampoo or soap. Next they put us in the steam room to dry off when on the way there the people getting body scrubs barley have any privacy except and lil folding chinese divider where anybody passing bye could get a glimpse of the person on the table naked. The massage was very mediocore!!!! The lady interuptted the massage a few times throughout. She had no consistancy with her massage .
Pros: Nice Sauna
Cons: Interupted massage,Not consistant,No smooth rhythem
The scrubs were great, but the massage wasn't. I went with my boyfriend and the two technicians kept talking through our massages. They didn't ask what the problem areas were, didn't use any oils and never even flipped us over. They also forgot to give us the mask that was apart of our purification process. When we reminded them they had us lay in the changing room rather than take us back upstairs to apply it. I would only recommend Juvenex for the scrub and nothing else.
Cons: massage technicians
I've been living in the city for almost 5 years and was looking for 24hr spa that I could go any time I wanted for facial and body treatment. Thanks to my friend who has recently become juvenex vip client, introduced me to juvenex. At first I doubted "" would I ever be able to go?"" since I work almost everyday!!! Over turning my doubt, the spa was 24 hours accomodating all the services any time I want!! I had facial and body scrub @ 2 in the morning and was just time in the paradise. The esthecian knew exactly what I needed. My face looked like it had volcanic eruption, and after the extraction and organic peeling, I no longer need to spend 2 hours try to conceal acnes. And the body scrub was just excellent. Now that all the dead skins are scrubbed away, I feel so refreshed and healthy now. I'm going there every week!!!!
It is beautifully designed. I wonder who the designer of this spa is. It was nice to begin with private elevator just for the juvenex clients. The spa experience was the best one so far.. Will be my favorite spa... Definitely worth going!
Pros: Relaxing time, great massage, great facial
How on earth did this Day Spa get voted the best in NYC! The Korean receptionist was extremely rude to me. I arrived a little late (like 15 minutes) and got nothing but attitude and a snarl when I arrived. With much apology on my end for the late arrival, they did take me in for a facial. The korean woman Ginger that worked on my face was awful and didn't know what the heck she was doing!!!!! She make me headache after my facial.HHHHelllo,,,,I spend $125 for facial not for headache leave the blemish.Still 2days after my first facial here, my acne has flared up so badly I had to go see a dermatologist!! This was my first time going to this so called Best Spa, the facialist definitely unlicensend and just finish study. and it will certainly be My LAST! Take my word, and take your business elsewhere! Please non't hire the student to do the $125 facial,this is unfair for comsumer....
Cons: unlicensed facialist
The front desk are so rude unhelpful and they are defintely not a place to go if you are looking to relax and have a pleasant welcoming.. the massages are however very good, but the bad customer service puts a bad taste in my opinion that I find it hard how other reviewers dont say anything...by the way, I NEVER complain about places am am not one of those ""difficult"" clients.. \r
I happen to know for sure that other people feel this way , however I am the only one speaking up for now.. hopefully others will speak up so they can change their ways.. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!\r
Pros: Good massages
Cons: Wrost customer service EVER!!!!!!
I went to Juvenex spa after having dinner with a friend. It was around 11:30 in the evening. I had never been to a 24hr spa, so I thought I would give it try, since it is hard for me to find time to pamper myself during the day.\r
I will say that the decor is lovely, but I didn't try the sauna or steam room because I didn't have a bathing suit-they said they could give me disposables, but I opted not to try these features as they were co-ed.\r
I have had many massages in NYC from high-end spas to the little Asian places. I also have friends who are massage therapists, so I know how a massage should be given. The practioner was a nice woman, but did not drape me properly, and I felt exposed at times.\r
Her technique was rather rushed and disjoineted, and I had to help her along, with what felt right, and what didn't. There were times that she would pull on my wrist and bend my elbow, and I had to tell her not to do that.\r
She did try to accomodate me when I guided her, but for a $100+ massage, I shouldn't have to train the massage therapist...\r
Someone also walked in on my massage-a confused patron most likely.\r
I sort of felt sorry for my therapist...she seemed troubled, but then again, staff needs to leave their troubles at home, and focus on the clients.\r
I did express my concerns to the receptionist, and she listened and thanked me for my feedback. but I doubt my helpful tips will reach the owner's ears.\r
Perhaps this spa is better during the day, but I will not return.\r
Pros: Helpful front desk employee
Cons: Felt rushed through my treatment, technician poorly trained
I am very happy to see no hair around my bikini !\r
It is comfortable , clean and looks nice.\r
kimmy is the best technitian in this field , you will feel comfortable with her kindness.\r
The juvenex spa is a wonderful experience. I have been getting treatments at the spa for over a year now and they are always very polite, courteous, and always very professional. I receive facial with kim and she is wonderful! I am always, and I means always, looking forward to my next apointment for a very satisfying experience, no matter what it is, they do it the best
Pros: Good facial
I've been going to Juvenex for years, and have always found the facility to be clean, attendants to be helpful and services to be top rate. I was there yesterday and had a wonderful time. I've been to some of the top spas in NYC and not had services as good as those at Juvenex.
Hard to understand some of the negative comments listed here. To say that the attendants don't speak a word of English is an exaggeration, and if the smell of Korean food bothers you, it's probably best not to go to a spa on a block that has about 25 restaurants!
Pros: good service, beautiful surroundings
Cons: a little pricey
My co-worker and I needed a spa day but we work until 9:30 at night. We found Juvenex via Google search, and we almost went to Aura Spa around the corner because we saw the Juvenex entry way, which was less than pleasing to the eye. We chose Juvenex because it offered more amenities at a better price, and the women on the phone at Juvenex was so polite and professional, we said, ""Well...let's just walk in and take a look. We can always turn around and leave.""
So in the middle of dirty Koreatown, you enter a shady-looking building, but you go up five floors and walk into a beautiful oasis of dark wood floors, stone and green tiled walls and soaking tubs full of bobbing limes. There's a stone sauna cave and a steam igloo. The staff wears collared white polos and offers tea and fruit. They help you with your robes and offer a standard of service you thought was lost in New York. Don't let its location fool you into thinking it's a happy-ending sort of business. It's professional, comfortable, open late, and the price beats what other New York spas offer. I hesitate to write a review because I kind of want to keep this little spot a secret, but our experience was great and Juvenex deserves the praise.
Pros: Clean, beautiful facilities. Comfortable and accommodating.
Cons: Store front would make you think it's a happy-ending spa.
My brows have never looked better!!! kim is a genius with wax and tweezers. What a good experience! kim began with a consultation in front of the mirror to discuss exactly what she was about to do and how she envisions my eyebrows .Thank you !!!
My best friend and I went for massages and facials in celebration of my birthday. It was, perhaps, the best gift ever. They made a mistake booking our massages, so we shared a room...but it was no big deal. The massage was fabulous, the facial was fabulous, and the igloos were awesome...wish we had gotten there even earlier to spend more time in the steam ""igloo"". I don't know what other reviewers are referring to in terms of ""dirty"" conditions et al. The spa was awesome, very clean...beautiful in fact. The locker room was pristine...and it was completely comfortable with regards to changing and showering. All in all it was a great experience, I slept through part of my massage and most of my facial, but judged by how luminous my skin was, I can certainly attest that it was an awesome facial and a spectacular, very relaxing massage. Can't wait to book our next appointments, we are thinking of making this a monthly excursion. Great Experience.
I have really sensitive skin (rosacea, sun sensitive), so I was worried, but they did a great job. I wasn't that red afterward. My brown spots and freckles are either totally gone or very light now, so I'm going back for the recommended .kam very knowledgable about skin.
Cons: Beautiful Spa
