Excellent spa, outstanding service, very professional staff. Kate, the manager, listens to the clients needs and addresses the right service. Yannah, the hairstylist pays attention to detail. And Irena, gives excellent massage with stretching as well, absolutely amazing.
I love love love Vada Spa. It’s been my go to for my Brazilian Waxes. I get the chocolate Brazilian wax and my technician is amazing. She talks to me throughout the experience. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I’ve went to her over six times. Amazing place

I would definitely recommend this spa if you want something last minute and inexpensive. This was my second visit. This time I had a 60 minute massage with a manicure and pedicure. I enjoyed my massage more than my mani/pedi. I can’t remember the persons name but she doesn’t seem much of “people’s person.” I had Angela give me a Swedish massage. She was very caring, knowledgeable and gentle. The downside of the services I would say is the front desk asking you to tip for your services. Tip is a way of showing gratification and thanking the person for her/his services. It shouldn’t feel mandated upon you especially if you didn’t feel pleased.
Irina gave the BEST massage I’ve ever had and I’ve been to a lot of spas (it was better than ones that I’ve paid wayyy more money for). Ira took her time and made my nails PERFECT. The spa was super clean and everyone was taking precautions because of Covid which was so reassuring. I felt COMPLETELY relaxed after and I will definitely be back again soon.
I had a very nice experience in this place. It was a last minute appointment, but they were kind enough to have me. It’s a very clean place with beautiful designs
They did a fantastic job on my hair definitely coming back
Men’s haircut review. I am very particular about how I get my hair cut and Malvina is amazing. So nice and patient. She listens to exactly what I want and gives me a perfect cut every time. Great price as well for the quality. Hard to find a better value in the city.
They tell you on the phone to NOT book through Groupon, offer the same prices, however DO NOT HONOR them. The massage is not great and my masseuse literally stopped massaging for 10 minutes (probably because she thought I fell asleep and was lazy!) NEVER AGAIN! Do yourself a favor and don't go there, there are plenty of great and HONEST massage places in the city.
It's good place
Hello everyone, i am really hurting because of vada spa. They took my $1,300 for laser hair removal and they burn my skin and i spoke to the manager and she was rude
I’ve been a customer since 2011. They’re amazing. Chocolate wax is the best!
I love their new location! Service is as always superb with a clean facility!
Been going here to for 2 years. Anastasia is the best when it comes to laser hair removal treatments

Great place for laser they offer other services too place is very clean staff very friendly.
My fingers started to bleed and they blamed for having sensitive skin. But they actually cut my skin with their tools and now I have scars and it hurts. It costs $90 including tips. They werent so rude but still... It hurts ????
If you're thinking of having a tattoo removed, go somewhere else. The employees at this spa purposefully never do a complete job so that you have to come back for 10-12 sessions instead of the standard 4-5 with the PicoSure laser. The only time they did do a complete job was when they shot a video for marketing purposes, which lasted about 15 minutes to cover all the areas. Every other session was in and out in 2-3 minutes and I could tell looking in the mirror that they had only treated the tattoo sporadically. Not a complete scam since it will eventually get removed, but close. After 6 sessions with the tattoo only 50% gone, I decided to see a real dermatologist instead of wasting my money here.
I liked the over all service!! But only thing I felt bad that the staff could have been more polite and generous.
They were so nice!! They fit me in last minute, right before New Years Eve! I got stuck in traffic and arrived around 30min late and they were just about closed but they waited for me anyway and she did such a great job with my Brazilian. I would absolutely go here again in the future and highly recommend! The salon was really clean with a very chic decor that makes you feel pampered. Love it!
I was here twice for a shellac manicure and the girls did a great job. I recommend Dana or Lucia.
If you do highlights here, they will charge you an extra $75 for toner and $45 for olaplex and insist olaplex is necessary. That is on top of the cost of highlights. Big warning if you purchase a Groupon, as this will ALL be an extra $120 on top of what you paid for the Groupon itself.
I couldn't get a mani-pedi at my regular place and took a chance on Vada and am glad I did. Cynthia did a spa pedicure (divine) and classic manicure. Excellent service. Professional. Spotless. Great price.
Always go here for mani and pedi with Dana. Their new location is very nice.
I dont like vr salon ... I love it . The place is super clean and u feel like a VIP there . The owner is very sweet and the staff is amazing . From haircuts to facials and more . Dont hesitate . Go I promise u will love it
Mila (Deliah) is an artist! She's amazing with hilites and her cuts are magic!

More like a back rub, not a real massage, Had to prompt the lady several times to dig in a bit deeper, very nice and friendly stuff, beautiful facilities.
Dinoarah is amazing
I have a thin and curly hair, and my hairs texture don’t get the hair color that I always plan to get. I tried this place and my appointment was with Nele and she was great, easy to talk to, and an actual a good listener. She styled my hair, and explained every step of the process. I recommend this place.
i went twice, once for mani pedi and a second time for a swedish massage! both were great! diana and kate were absolutely amazing!
Professional mssage with professionals team.. Great communication before arrival and after 5 stars !
Ask for Ana..she amazing..knows exactly what shes doing..5 stars for a beautiful haircut
My friends and I booked this Spa on the fly on our first day arriving in NYC. First off, Vada was able to accommodate all 3 of us! Secondly, the services were fabulous. The massage was relaxing and worked out the stress. The facial was just what I needed. We left feeling revived, relaxed and beautiful. Would recommend and return again.
The experience I had was terrible. I purchased two groupons for a friend (who is getting married today) and myself. When I called to book the treatments it was never explained to me that I had to pay a fee for a cancellation that took place months ago. When we arrived at the facility the two ladies were very rude in asking for the money and couldn’t explain properly why I was expected to pay, I did pay just to keep the peace because they were rude. My friend wanted to leave but I had already bought the groupons. Then we get downstairs for our service and the place was a huge mess from construction. Spa treatments are suppose to be relaxing but neither of us felt relaxed due to the sounds of construction taking place. I am very dissatisfied with the establishment and the service received. I will no longer be a customer and I will be sure to tell all of my friends that I have referred just how bad service has become with the switch in location.

I loved it!!! We had a bachelorette party this weekend, and the staff took great care of us, even though they're in the process of changing locations. Kate, who helped me plan this event, was extremely patient and made sure our timing went perfectly. I personally had the Mani/Pedi/Massage/Facial combo and have never felt more relaxed. I will definitely be going back.
I love Vada. I’ve been a customer many years and they really have amazing nail techs, who give manicures that last a good 10 days! Their waxing estheticians give the fastest and super clean wax with minimal pain! And their massage therapists give great deep tissue massage without hurting us shortys. I’m a forever client since they always provide the best service in anything they do.
Really a great experience my for my first time visiting Vada Spa, they offer a really good body massage service . The environment is very relaxing and I was pretty surprised to see so many different services in a spa, they also have teeth whitening and Reiki sessions!
Great experience recommended to everyone!!!
Wow just an incredible experience ! Dinorah gave me an amazing treatment, that I will come back on the regular now!!!
Dinorah great service thank you !
Definitely coming back to this spa & dinorah is the reason why . She’s great to have a convo with & she is very outgoing . She gave me an amazing treatment !
dinorah gave me an amazing treatment, super blessed and grateful!
Lisa is simply the best. She’s so kind. Great to chat with. Simply the best. I will only go to her, and you should too. The staff up front is so sweet and they just want to be sure you’re okay while you wait. Good people.
Barbie was super informative and kind. The facility was clean and serene. I will definitely go back and recommend my friends come too.
Saw many negative reviews about the haircuts. I went in yesterday with a groupon for a wash, cut, and blowdry for $42. My haircut looks amazing and I had my hair straightened after the blowdry for an extra $10. Yes, you do get charged $20 for longer hair, but that is in the fine print and it still came out cheaper than any other hair salon in nyc. My only concern was that the stylist burnt my ear at one point with the blowdryer and accidentally pulled my cartilage piercing out while brushing my hair. I was satisfied with the haircut/styling though.

Amazing! The massages are the best I've ever had. Chocolate wax was great! Mani/pedi was okay. Its been 4 days and my nails still look good so that's a plus! Great experience overall. Will definitely be coming back
Amazing services and super friendly staff!! Definitely coming back.
Good services with great groupon deals.
For my first visit for a tatoo removal, the women told me that 3 sessions should be ok or 4 is for sure. After the 3 first sessions, my tatoo didn’t disappear. I took an other 3 sessions because « it will be done for sure ». But after theses sessions, my tatoo is still here, lighter of courSe but it didn’t disappear like the women said.. I feel injured! On the other side, the property is clean and some girls are nice!
Horrible! I will never go back to this place. The lady who cut my hair showed up 1 minute after my schedule appointment and did not acknowledge me. She lacked social basic communication skills which made the whole ordeal an awkward experience. Not to mention, the haircut I asked for was not the one I got. She basically had a field day cutting off over 10 inches of my hair and then didn't have enough to work with for the hairstyle I requested. Definitely not going back here. Do not recommend!
Very attentive and the service was excellent!
My friend and I found this place through a groupon listing. The place is very well organized, prompt and professional. Good customer service. The place is clean and nice. I had an amazing facial. The woman who did it was extremely nice and basically gave me a brand new face! 10/10 However, we also got a massages which pretty regular and not worth it. Mostly it felt like someone was applying lotion to my back.
First went with a Groupon, expecting mediocre service. Everyone at the salon is from Kyrgyzstan, and everyone is extremely polite and customer service focused. Ellie, who did my nails, was extremely meticulous and listened to all of my requests. My only quibble is that they do not use CND Shellac and have a poor selection of OPI colors.
It didn’t really feel like a spa with a relaxing atmosphere if that’s what you are looking for. The services were good but the vibe of the whole space wasn’t what I was expecting.
I just got my first tatoo removal session and it was absolutely pain free compared to other places!!:) and technician was so kind :))
I truly appreciated their hospitality and professionalism at Vada Spa. My appointment was at 6:30pm and I was in the pedicure chair soaking my feet at that time. Also, I was impressed with my nail technician, she took her time and did a beautiful job on both my hands and feet. I am a happy and satisfied customer who is looking forward to going back to Vada Spa and Laser Center ????!
Got acrylic nails (full set) today for the first time. Awesome experience. My technician paid a lot of attention to detail and made sure they came out well. Super happy with the service and the result.
I absolutely love the service I received from Vada. I've gotten massages, facial, manicure and body scrubs. I've taken my mother and fiance with me on different occasions and they too were happy with the service.
I visited this location with a Groupon deal and it was a pleasant experience. The reception desk was very helpful and kind, they were even able to accommodate me with my full service despite being a few minutes late. They are a full service spa and everything was clean and sanitary. I had Irina for my facial and reflexology which was amazing—she was incredible, highly recommend asking for her. I also got a massage with Kate which was not very good—during the massage, I was essentially rubbed with cold oil for an hour and the room got incredibly cold which did not help me relax. I recommend asking for a male or another masseuse.
Was referred by a friend for a single process, cut, blow out package. As I’m trying to make the appointment, the receptionist tells me to find the Groupon voucher number and reiterate it to her. I told her I didn’t know what number she wanted and she responds just open up your Groupons and you’ll see how then give us a call back. She proceeds to hang up. Extremely rude customer service honestly. I didn’t even get a service done there yet but way to leave a bad taste in the mouth. I called back thinking it was just a fluke and the lady I spoke to was even ruder. All she said as I explained to her the rudeness was “mmhm” “ok mame do you still want to make an appointment.” Of course not.
A couple of friends and I went here to get mani-pedis, and it was quite an experience. A couple good things - the mani and pedi was quite nice, it was really relaxing and the lady doing it was really sweet. However, she kept judging my choice in colors for my nails and that was just a tad bit weird. Also, even though I went there with two friends and we made appointments for all 3 of us together, they made one of us get a mani first while two of us went for pedis which was a little weird since they had people and a chair to service all three of us at the same time. Overall, I would probably go again if I'm going alone but maybe not if I'm trying to relax with friends
Worst Service ever had. They just care to take the money. My girlfriend did gel nails that barely lasted 6 days. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL
Mila did a FANTASTIC job on my hair. I have had many baylages before and wasn’t always impressed with the results. Mila blended my color so perfectly and styled it well. The color looked just like the one I wanted in my Pinterest picture. I will be back again!
The Swedish massage was more of a relaxing massage than deep tissue. The facial was ok. Same person that did massage, did my facial and she made me comfortable and relaxed. Just that the massage I needed for my body wasn’t given so I’m still in a little stiff.
The staff are kind and courteous and the location is very easy to find.
It was amazing. Every single service was great. Facial, massage, mani and pedi.
Love going to Vada. I've been going for years. Irina is the best. Love the facials. Really professional.
I highly recommend Dinorah she always does a awesome job very respectful and friendly she always make me feel comfortable and sacrifice with her service. . I am a satisfied customer will always be loyal to Dinorah feeling like a millionaire right now the staff there is always very friendly and polite .The environment at the spa is always nice and clean .I highly recommend Vada spa I been going there for 5 years now call me selfish but I dont want no one else to do my massage and facial please try Dinorah go to vada spa and request her you will not be disappointed.
Lorena is so sweet and did the best mani/pedi! I bumped my nail later that day and came back for a touch up, and she saved the day!!
(Translated by Google) Totally happy with the result and the treatment received. I will return without a doubt! (Original) Totalmente contenta con el resultado y el trato recibido. Volveré sin lugar a dudas!
WORST haircut I have ever gotten. It literally took 6 minutes and she didn’t even check to see if it was even. One side is longer than the other and it is VERY choppy. Will absolutely never go back.
Great calm relaxing peaceful Donna was my masseuse she did an amazing job I will be going back
It is wonderful that Mila is working at Vada Spa. I love having my hair cut by her. Thank you!!!!
My favorite Spa with the best service, staff and ambiance. Bought a group-on in January and still make a biweekly appointments for facials, mani and pedis. Love my nail lady’s Eliza who always pampers me and gives me the best color options when I can’t decide :). A million stars for this spa :).
I love coming to Vada Spa. Dinorah is an exceptional masseuse: she is very patient, compassionate and customer friendly. I always get the swedish massage and cellulite wrap with her and I am never disappointed. Overall just a great spa.
I'm a long time customer at Vada Spa (2011) and have seen this establishment grow over the years. The staff has always been professional and have over time come to acknowledge me as an individual (it's always nice to be greeted by your name). Liza especially makes my visits enjoyable and always has nice words and stories to share. She takes her time and always makes sure that I am fully satisfied before taking her next customer. Thank you ladies for always taking care of me - especially considering my crazy work schedule. Zalika
I had an absolutely great experience here! I last minute made an appointment at the end of the day for a gel manicure and regular pedicure. I was running late and rushing to get there ASAP. I was very flustered when I arrived and was trying to quickly choose a color to make up for lost time. Then I met Liza, the nail technician who would be working with me that day. She could tell I was rushing with the colors and assured me I could take my time and pick a color I really want. After some thought I ended up choosing one I was certain I liked. During my pedicure I was pretty fatigued and dehydrated from a long day and also from my sprint to the salon. Liza must have noticed how parched I was because she offered to get me a cup of water. I was elated to hear that since I was just thinking about how I couldn't wait to get some water after my appointment. Not being uncomfortably thirsty, I was able to really enjoy the experience. The pedicure was relaxing and came out excellent. On to the manicure. I again felt bad that I was taking too long to pick a color and was ready to settle and just pick one, especially since they were about to close. Liza could tell I wasn't 100% sure about my color and encouraged me to take my time since the gel commits you to the color for at least 2 weeks. I ended up picking a color that I had initially overlooked and I am so pleased how it came out. Liza suggested adding some sparkles sparingly and it really went together nicely. It came out flawless since there was a really great attention to detail. I am usually indifferent about where I get my nails done as it's usually all the same experience with varying results of quality. I never thought I'd be walking out of something like a mani-pedi feeling like my needs as a person were seen, let alone met. A white glove treatment I did not see coming. Happy to have a salon to go to regularly now!
Excellent service and experience. We used a Groupon which got a Mani pedi for $40. The service is fine. They talk to you and are very fun team! They helped me pick out a color which I loved. I will be coming back for sure!!
Very rude woman (with Russian accent) who did the pedicure. The whole thing lasted 12 minutes. Twelve minutes! She did the absolute most minimal amount of work possible. My husband started at the same time I did and didn't finish for twenty minutes after my pedicure had ended. Everyone else in the salon was very nice and friendly. Do something else with your life if you hate doing manicures and pedicures. I was so looking forward to a good pedicure, and it was an awful experience. I feel like I was being punished or something. Bad, rude, terrible.
Been going there for years, pretty decent
they are trying to be too much to too many. way way way to many services. they need to focus on a few things and do them great. They finally got better massage tables. the massage tables are too narrow too short and the vinyl is so cheap that it's all cracked. They really need to spend money on these tables. It's hard to have a comfortable massage without a good table. I still feel like I'm lying on an ironing board
Emi J D.
Very clean, but the gratuity should not be forced on the client, it should be based on the experience the client receives. If not, then they should state before purchasing any service that they automatically charge gratuity based on the service.
The ladies in the receptionist are so friendly, so as my hairdresser, Nylda! My hair dresses made sure that I feel comfortable with the amount of hair she cuts and made sure that I'm aware of the style that she's about to do. She's also a great conversationalist, so really enjoyed my visit at Vada.
I love this place. I go there for massages, manicures, pedicures, and waxes. I use the same massage therapist and nail technician every time, Rana and Stella. They are amazing. The only service I did not like there was the teeth whitening. It was a waste of money. Other than that, AWESOME SPA!
If you are looking for a wonderful massage expirience, relaxing, caring and to release all that stress, book a massage and ask for Dinora. I have been getting massages with her for almost a year now and haven't regretted it. Dinora is amazing at what she does. Also got to give props to the ladies in the front desk they are very accommodating and work with you to meet your spa needs the best way possible...
Grace E. M.
Great and affordable spa services!
I've been going to Vada for about 3 years and all of my experiences have been amazing. The front desk staff is very nice and accommodating. I always get all my services done by Dinorah she is the best and her massages and facials just leave you feeling like a brand new person I highly recommend her and Vada Spa for your spa needs.

I had a gel manicure & totally loved it! Lucia is super professional, friendly & I definitely recommend this place for nails.
Dona is great for mani/pedi!
Great spa. I enjoyed my massage, facial and mani-pedi very much. Staff is attentive to your needs and very pleasant
Great customer service plus my mani/pedi came out perfect.
I have to say.. my technician was a very sweet older woman. However, the work that she did was not good. I got a shellac manicure and pedicure. Pedicure came out great, but the shellac manicure didn’t. I really wasn’t happy when I left the nail salon. I wasn’t in love.. I felt like she didn’t do a great job. Therefore I didn’t tip well. In addition, my nails started to chip off on the 4th day!!! Which only proves me not being content. I knew they weren’t as good, but to start chipping in 4 days?! Shellac manicure are suppose to last 2 weeks max.. I’ve never had a shellac manicure peel off 4 days. You can just tell the quality of the work wasn’t good. I’m very disappointed because I wish I could’ve gone back to fix it, but I had to leave for vacation. I’m very disappointed with this quality of work. I shouldn’t have to go through this. Now I’m on vacation with one finger with no color. Why? Because clearly the technician didn’t do a good job. She was a sweet elderly woman, but I don’t think she was a good technician overall.
Ismael Caraballo J.
very friendly staff
It was a great experience. It was very relaxing.I would definitely come back.
They listen to exactly what you ask for and don’t cut a millimeter past that. I always leave feeling great! Just make sure you tell them over the phone exactly what you are coming in for because they time their appointments accordingly.
Great service, everyone is very friendly and take their time to make sure you have a great experience. Would definitely recommend!
Have a best hairstylist from here!
Has been going to this place for years for various services, from mani/pedi to waxing, massage and facials.. Amazing experience every time I go. Highly recommend.
Love there facials and massages but not a fan of mani and pedi the old lady I had cut my skin and had it burning and 2 days later I have a scab. But I highly recommend the facial and massage.
Love my manicurist....just fabulous!!
Sana H. A.
Favorite spa in the city
Save your money, super cuts quality and they up charged me $25, even though I seeing they charged someone else $20. I suppose they charge whatever they feel like to whom ever. I asked for layers and pretty much got a trim/ mock bangs. I was charged for a hairstyle and upcharged, when I realized what the hairstylist was doing I had already lost more hair than I would have liked for true layers. I'm 29 yo and know what layers look like and was told I did receive layers, clearly I did not.
The masseuse skipped hands and feet. The facial technician did not rub head, shoulders, arms as I have experienced at other spas. I would not visit again.
The good reviews for this place mostly come from the manicure and pedicure. The haircut portion is horrible. The upstairs is small. The staff is rude and they don't know how to communicate. They messed up my wife's hair and did not give her the hairstyle she asked for.
Dinora was the absolute best! She was my masseuse(I felt like Jello when I left) and she also did my facial. It was an absolutely invigorating experience and I will be returning.
Worst hair cut ever. I bought a groupon for "haircut, blow dry, style, and conditioning" for $42. I have straight hair, mid back level and basically got a trim with a $20 upcharge for having long hair. The "conditioning" means they use conditioner when they wash your hair. I had to stand during the first portion of my hair cut because again my hair is long. The time to wash, "condition," and cut was less than 8 minutes. I was should "broken hair" but nothing was done about it. In terms of leaving a tip, they said the original price of the haircut would have been $130. Clearly a scam groupon. I will likely go for another hair cut somewhere else later today. I would have been better off at supercuts for a fraction of the price
The upstairs physical space where the hair services ar done is quite bad—crowded, messy and the shampoo bowl was super uncomfortable.
I loved my haircut and conditioning treatment here, which i found through Groupon. Angela did a great job and the girls at the reception area were very friendly. Thank you so much ladies!
I simply fell in love with the personnel! Best customer service: ladies are sooo sweet and caring! I would definitely come here every week! Best massage, facial and nails in one spot!
Was the fastest lasering services ever. For it to be 130$ I remember it was 100 and it was done perfectly right. They seem to do it lil bit in little areas to make you come back multiple times. When they could of zap each spot more . I also noticed the young lady in front asking do I want a envelope. Don’t ask me to tip. It’s like a homeless person begging.
I love going to Vada Spa. I'm always greeting like a long lost friend, even if I only go every few months. Tatiana is the best!!
Very dishonest business. They lie about their rates and lock you into a 24 hour cancelation policy, then jack up prices when you get there and are already trapped in the appointment. My stylist kyra also burnt my hair multiple times while styling it. Do not waste your time or money on this place.
Good care, always enjoy it
Great visit for my shellac nails. They use brand new tools for each costumer and are clean. The place is pretty small and the color I wanted was very seethrough and the lady doing my nails only realized when she pointed and put a couple of layers. However, she then tried to fix it bu adding a similar glitter pink color on top that wasn’t as seethrough. I would come back.
My experience is always top notch and professional.
Conveniently located near Penn station, friendly staff, and affordable prices!
Always clean and the aesthetician are always professional. I get Brazil wax using hard wax and never had issues. Always have convenient times and hospitable.
I enjoyed the experience. Staff is very nice and they made me feel so comfortable. I felt rejuvenated after my massage and my facial. Will definitely come back, and recommend the spa to all my friends.????
Beautiful spa and wonderful with hair color. Very professional people. Stylists that are amazing.
One of my favorite spa’s to go to ! Relax full ????????
Really enjoyed my experience. They were running rather late so I was offered a complimentary massage which was AMAZING I must add. Then when I finally saw the therapist she was very empathetic and complimenting. The receptionist staff are also very respectful and patient, overall a lovely bunch. Can’t wait to return for my next treatment of laser tattoo removal.
I called to make an appointment and had to go all the way downtown, and when I got to the haircut lady she tells me it's an extra $20 for long hair. They should have told me that in the phone Before they took my voucher number and confirmed with me on the phone to come. Haircut was good . But in the end she couldn't style my hair or I'd have to pay the $20 extra
Overall, everyone was nice. However, wouldn’t bother go again. They aren’t that accommodating and the space is just way too small
Sea Earth Facial is extremely pleasant and relaxing. My skin is super soft and looks shiny and refreshed. You will notice a difference in your skin after the first treatment although I recommend this treatment once a month. You and your face are worth it and will benefit greatly.... Invest in yourself, your wellbeing and your skin now.... Oh, and Irena is the absolute best. Moving forward, I will make my monthly appointments based on her availability.
Dinorah gives the best massages and facial. Book her . You won't be disappointed.
(Translated by Google) Ask to be serviced by Lutia !!! She is great! (Original) Ask to be serviced by Lutia!!! She is great!
Vika was amazing! So happy w/ my highlights and cut!
I love Olga! The service is great and it's my go to for my Brazilian wax, meaning that they provide a comfortable environment.
Went there for a haircut. The stylist (Alissa, I suppose) was very rude and did not explain anything properly. Rolled her eyes when I asked her something about the haircut. Would not visit again.
Staff is great and polite. The service I received is always great and the person is very knowledgeable and patience
I love the massages very sanitary with nail care. Debora gives the best masage
My experience at Vada Spa is always great. The staff is very friendly and professional. This time for some reason the nail polish on my first toe kept smudging. I went back and ask them if they could fix it which they kindly did but when I got home it still smudged. That's weird because I never had that problem before especially with my pedicure.
I love Vada Spa for great customer serves and professionalism. I highly recommend!
I have been going to Vada Spa for years. One of the things I love to go to them for massages .
Errol A. A.
Great place the staff are all very friendly and they did a great manicure and pedicure with a buff...
Haircut was great. Must admit it was a bit shorter than I had gone in there wanting but it looked sooo fabulous. I believe my stylist was Mila.
ive been back there many times - they must be doing something right
I've been here several times for laser tattoo removal with Anastasia. I couldn't be happier with the results, the price was right and everyone that works here is super friendly.
Great place for a spa day. Staff was professional. Clean private rooms.
The spa was absolutely wonderful! Bought a voucher for my girlfriend and I to get a 60 minute full body massage, manicure, and pedicure. It took us a while to be taken care of which would be the only ding I could bring up, since our appointment was for 2 PM and our massages didn't start until probably 2:30 or so. But from there everything was smooth sailing and a really relaxing and pleasant experience. The staff was friendly and really made sure to take care of us. I will be back!
The Swedish massage and facial was amazing!
Great service. Friendly staff
Perfect,love the chocolate wax
Super attentive, good services kind employees
It was my first time there for my first facial ever and it was amazing. Irina took great care of me and gave my skin exactly what it needed. The receptionists were nice and very helpful, and the place was very clean and calming. I can't wait to go back next month!
Simply stated one of the best massage & facial I've ever had! The entire staff was professional and friendly. There was no high pressure "add-on" sale. I can't wait to visit again
My Fav massage person left. I need to get a new fav but I like their spa services
Had a great experience at this spa. Very professional with high quality services. Would highly recommend.
Legit massage spot.
Best nail salon I have been to so far in all of New York City. Nearly a week later and my nails look like I just left the salon.
I visited Vada spa 2 days ago. The staff was friendly and nice. I made an apt for blow dry, style and haircut. Worst haircut ever. I left crying. I have long hair, got charged 25$ extra because of it. Which is understandable. I asked for a straight trim less than an inch to get rid of damaged hair. At the end when I saw my hair and said why are the sides uneven and why is there a chunk missing. The answer I got was: This is how your hair is. Are you kidding me I came in to trim my ends, clearly they were uneven bc of being damaged. So why on earth would someone cut your hair uneven to ‘keep is the same’ if you asked for a straight trim. I have a straight trim in the front cut shorter than the rest and the other side is layered. Very disappointed, now I have to walk around with a horrible haircut that looks like I cut myself with school scissors. I preferred my dead ends. But thanks for washing and blow drying my hair!
Loved their service. I visit vada spa very often. Their facial expert Irena is really great! She knows exactly what she’s doing and does a great job!
Alla is amazing!!! She does my laser hair removal, she is sweet, professional and very responsible. She is always caring and trying to help you to get the results you are looking for. Love her and the place is great!!!
I love the staff and services from this spa. Very clean friendly and welcoming. They offer amazing deals and provide amazing services!
It was wonderful!
Myra was good and I really like how my hair turned out. I have had other services at Vada Spa and gave always had a good experience.
My masseuse got the job done. But it just felt like she was rushing. My previous massage was the same. I just you teach them to rush thru the session. Wasnt very relaxing.
Came here for a massage that I purchased on groupon. Me and my cousins absolutely loved our massages even though they were with different masseus. Definitely recommend even though we had quite a bit of a wait
Luxurious spa located in the Village in downtown Manhattan. The various receptionists are friendly and helpful. The location is clean and brightly lit. There are hair cutting and nail areas. They also have private rooms for waxing. Numerous waxing and massage services are offered. Appointments are definitely recommended.
Wash and cut, staff was professional and courteous.
Got my eyebrows tweezed and tinted. I asked to keep my eyebrows thick and she did a great job and chose the right shade of brown to tint my eyebrows. Would come back again
Friendly staff. Has a mini coffee and water station for self serve, which is nice. One star less because there was only one bathroom and I believe there should be two when your entire clientele is women and women use the restroom all the time.
I had a wonderful experience with this place! My never looked better than now???? I will definitely go there again and will totally recommend this place to my friends! 10 stars!?Kira is a great professional -very friendly and attentive! Thank you ??
Amazing customer service highly recommend
The chocolate wax was great! Irina was awesome and very informative about other offers. My mani /pedi came out fine, but the TV with replays of body techniques was over kill too me.
My husband and I had a 60 minute swedish massage and a 45 minute seaweed facial and they were both amazing! Can't wait to go back!
They couldn't be nicer at Vada Spa - very nice, from beginning to end... I highly recommend... I'd be in every week if i could!
Alla’s experience and background are a rarity today. Alla’s impeccable approach to her clients is obvious. She is most welcoming, charming, kind, reassuring. She is someone who listens carefully. I feel extremely fortunate in discovering this extremely capable woman who has built an impressive trust in her clients. She is generous with her time. I will be back for all my future needs!
Excellent staff and service!
I spent entire afternoon here with a couple of my sisters. We had massages, pedicures and facials. The service was wonderful. I felt like a queen. I love New York.
I came for the massage, facial and mani-pedi package. I felt super pampered and relaxed. I will definitely be recommending Vada and coming back myself.

So I went here for a gel mani and a pedicure using groupon these people were so kind and professional!!!!! They took their time with me and didn't rush! The service I received from them was truly amazing! The atmosphere I calm and relaxing the place is extremely clean and neat. You can see how the workers are at peace. By the way my manicure lasted about 6 weeks!!! If your looking for a spa place to relax and unwind this is definitely the place to go. Also the location is very close to the train so it was easy to arrive to and convenient to travel after. I must warn you it is a little pricey but I would definitely go back just so I can feel amazing!!!! I would rate them 10 stars if I could!!!??????????????????
Always a good experience!
Great haircut! Malvina was awesome.
Very high quality masseuse. Compassionate and competent. However, I hope they read this because the massage tables are very uncomfortable and badly need replaced. The hole for your face has no padding and is simply covered with a very scratchy washcloth. If it weren’t for me being physically uncomfortable laying there, it would have been near perfect.
Went here for a mother & son spa day on a Groupon deal. The massage was wonderful and the tech paid a lot of attention to my tense neck, shoulders and back. My son enjoyed his as well but it was his first massage so he wasn’t as comfortable as he will eventually be. I was excited for the facial but the tech used her nails and I found it extremely uncomfortable, and even had some scarring after. My son finished faster before me so he started his mani pedi. After the painful facial I didn't stay for my mani/pedi but I found the staff friendly and the environment welcoming and very clean.

I had a wonderful time at Vada Spa. Staff was great. I went on my Birthday a few days ago and I will say Kate gave a great massage , she knows her stuff and work those knots out, blessings to her and Olga who also did a relaxing facial. Thank you #lovingme #blessthebody #healyourbody #blessthespecialist

Wonderful service! They get the job done fast and well.
Got a haircut through Groupon here. The lady was nice and did a great job but they charge extra for long hair, FYI.
Not really thrilled of the service here. Nails have cracks after 2 days. And it’s over priced. I only praise massages here. They are fantastic. Hence 4 stars
I enjoyed my spa day. Full body massage along with a facial. It was great
Best gel manicure in New York
I highly recommend Vada spa. I had the best massage ever.
Great services! And friendly employees! Will recommend and always return!
I went in here with the Groupon, and because I had that was treated way worse than their regular customers. Even though I had an appointment, I had to wait, but the person who was next to me who was clearly a regular had a hairdresser waiting for him for his appointment. He was also offered tea and water, which I was not. My hairdresser was checking her phone while cutting my hair, and then tried to charge me extra fees for cutting long hair which she eventually didn't charge but wouldn't blow my hair out even though it was included in the Groupon. Would definitely not return.
I was recommended by a friend to Vada Spa and my experience has been good up until my last visit 2days ago. I bought a massage session for my son at groupon rate. When I went to pay I was told I could pay after my session no worries ok. after my session when I went to pay I was told 91.00$ for my son massage when I enquire as to why I was told ok they will honor Groupon rate but the massage he had was a deep tissue massage and an additional 20$ has to be added on because they do not know who I had made the arrangement with. As per my son they did not tell him there was a price difference and this was his first time there. This was their mistake but I paid the price gowching fare and left. I will not be returning to Vada spa anytime soon nor will I be recommending them to anyone again, and all my friends I have recommended Vada Spa to I will let them know to watch out for price gowching. P.S out side Vada spa there was a sign stating Massage 69.00$ one hour session \
Could be better, the nail area is not too clean and not the most attentive. The front desk girls are nice. The mani-pedi was okay
I went to get 24k facial .my appointment was at 4:30 .was showed up at 4:15 .waited for 45 minutes .they were taking all other people who came after me even did not appointment but me. they told me their system is slow and they cannot see my name .after waiting more than 45 minutes they asked me if you want to do free message for 15 minutes and I said yes .I went for message and after that waited in the message room for another 20 minutes. Denora came and started facial she was so nice but does not know how to do facial at all. light was so dim don't know how she can see my skin .when I finish my facial my skin was oily .when I came to front desk they gave me 2 envelopes to put tips for message and facial. Of course why I have to give tip to anyone if I waited there more than 45 minutes. came home looked in the mirror my black heads were still there .the worse place I went to my facial never will go back .I have to give them a star because without selecting the star I cannot post .
Great spa location
Got a Groupon for a haircut here and was pretty happy with it!
Victoria cut my hair and was very attentive with the type of style I was trying to achieve. I showed her a photo and was able to cut/style my hair easily.
Rude service and not very clean. The treatments seem to be okay but they are just not nice and don't make you feel warm or pampered.
The massage is good but the facial is not worth
A whole bunch of services to use. #pretty pricey. We used groupon. Nice experience. Most workers dont speak English.
For a guy, the ManiPedi care and deal is SUPERB! Especially recommend Myra, a smart, competent woman who'll make your digits happy!
I had a facial with Denora. She is such a wonderful person and makes you feel so relaxed ????. I saw an instant improvement in my skin and I can’t wait to come back. Next appointment already booked! -M
Sooooooooooooooo relaxing. Thanks gurls mani pedi facial and massage
My experience overall was good but I've been to better establishments and I've enjoyed those experiences more. We arrived about 10 min late because of the mta. It was 5:26pm and we were greeted ok. It didn't take me long to realize that this is not the kind of place where your going to get a warm genuine greeting. They are a bit cold and straight to the point which I didn't like. When we arrived a Russian older women was pretty much yelling next to us and I can tell she wasn't saying nice things. We were taken up the stairs, past the salon and threw a door that lead to the massage rooms. Alex was amazing, he stretched me out and went in on all of my sore areas. My guest had a great massage as well.....4 stars thanks to Alex, 3 stars for overall service and hospitality or lack there of. I would go back if the Groupon was still active and if my go to places weren't available.........work on being more gracious and approachable. The stone faces and cut throat attitudes are not going to make your guest feel comfortable, especially if there's an angry Russian women yelling at you.....
I love it from my Brazilian chocolate waxes, message and facials but yes they are very pushy with tips. It is a turn off at times. I want to give a tip freely and feel its deserved not feel its mandatory. To be honest , the pedicures and manicures are not the best so to feel I have to give you a tip is ridiculous. In other good news,Ira is the best hands down. I love her.
I just got a body Massage nice place
My deep tissue massage and my mani/pedi were great. My facial, however, was a nightmare. Luci, who did the facial, spent the entire time lecturing me about my dermatologist-designed skincare routine and then insisted that I have rosacea, which 1) I definitely don’t, and 2) if I did, I would’ve had it diagnosed by my dermatologist, not an esthetician, but she kept insisting that i have rosacea despite my telling her my dermatologist (who i see regularly) had not ever brought that up as a concern. Additionally, when we discussed my skincare routine, she lectured me about discontinuing a topical treatment that my dermatologist had prescribed, even though the doctor was the one who told me to discontinue it. It made the entire 45 minute experience wildly unpleasant and I have no intention of returning, and I will recommend that my friends avoid Vada Spa as well. I called and spoke to a manager, who acknowledged that this was unacceptable, and then proceeded to offer me 30% off any service. Um. No. I’m not going to give you even more of my money with no guarantee you have staff who know not to berate your clients.
Definitely recommend. Love going for my laser appointments, I travel a lot so sometimes it’s hard to be consistent I was able to do 6 sessions in a row and it lasted me a very long time. Highly recommend, Natasha I believe her name is does a superb job !!
I went in as a groupon customer but they charged extra $55 for glaze which i dont know anything about. Overall, the lady who did my highlights and hair color, did an amazing job.
AVOID!! AVOID!! AVOID!! I wish I had listened to the bad reviews on this place. Their policy is extremely ridiculous. I made my appointment 2 days before. But I live in NYC, LIFE HAPPENS! Things sometimes don’t go as planned! My appointment was for 3pm. I called at 10AM, letting them know that I have an emergency and was not sure if I would make it. I repeatedly made calls to let them know. I tried my best and got there 30 minutes late and was informed I would not be seen since it was a Friday and it was overbooked. My appointment was for an hour. Also, it was already paid for as it was a Groupon voucher which they take over the phone when making the appointment. After talking to the rude receptionist yet again, she simply told me that I should know their policy already as I was told when making the appointment. I most definitely WAS NOT! I asked why can’t I just set it for another day, she said their policy does not allow that. I was told to come back at 8pm. As if I would just wait around for 5 hours because they can’t accommodate their customers? When 8pm arrived, they called only to ask if I was on my way. It was extremely upsetting how the whole day went and I expected they would call the next day in an attempt to redeem their awful service and reschedule anyway since the service was paid for. But it’s been over a week and not one call, so they just take people’s money and move on. I was never even called back for a store credit! This was a Christmas gift for my mother and needless to say I’ve informed everyone on my social media about this awful place and advised everyone I know to give a bad rating because they just took someone’s money and acted as if their policy is more important and justifies stealing people’s money! AWFUL!
Great first time brazilian chocolate wax experience with Liza!!
I absolutely love Vada Spa. Excellent customer service. Great prices. And amazing massages.
1 hour massage with Alex was wonderful! He is a professonal. He worked on my muscle pain as I asked and relaxed me at the same time. Highly recommend! Definitely coming back! Thank you! Ennie
My go-to salon! I have recommended this place to a couple of my family and friends and they each have said they loved the staff and the quality and cleanliness (they all received nail services). Definitely will continue to visit.
Huge color variety, professional nail treatment and everyone is very polite! The massage is very good too
Been coming here for years!! Clean place and friendly staff.. Lots of services.. A tip please please come on time for your appointment
Their regular nail polish needs upgrading. The techs are good with their job but they're overpriced. 40 dollars for a mani ped. An extra 15 dollars if you bring your own shellac nail polish
Just went for my first time, it was a great experience. Stella is awesome!
Great service. Massage is amazing and the mani and pedi is great
I absolutely love Vada Spa! I recommend them to all my family and friends. I saw Alla for SculpSure and tattoo removal and I am so happy with the results, it looks absolutely amazing. She treat me so well by explaining everything and walking me through every step of every procedure! Alla is friendly and knowledgeable. She is honest, and accurate. She's my hero! I'm extremely pleased with my results.
Worst racist service ever I have the hairdresser talking about me in Russian the whole time not knowing I know Russian. Then she said I had worse hair than an African American on recording .
I made reservations for my mother to go here for her birthday and she was beyond pleased with the service and atmosphere. She got to try out many of the services which included a 60 minute massage, a seaweed facial and a mani/pedi. It was so wonderful she wants to go back. The staff are friendly and respectful.
Great spa for massages and facials. Those are the only services I have tried and they do a wonderful job. They are also very reasonably priced and always have specials.
I had a Gel manicure, it was the best I ever had. I will be going back from now on. Angela was great.
(Translated by Google) Excellent service, highly professional team, convenient location. Excellent! (Original) ???????? ????????????, ?????? ???????????????? ?????????, ??????? ???????. ???????!
From the moment I walked in I felt comfortable and taken care of, I had walking in late to my appointment and I was handled without any fuss or irritation in a pleasant manner. I started my pedicure almost immediately check in was a breeze and once I picked my color they got the show on the road quickly. My nail tech was friendly and she gave me an awesome massage while she did my toes and an even more amazing job when she did my hands.
Great service, great stylists, great location!
I've been coming to Vada Spa for years now. I love that you can get just about anything there. I've had massages, manicures, pedicures, laser hair removal, scrubs, facials and more done here. I like that they try to stay ahead of the trends and often have great deals. They also frequently have availability and are pretty timely.
This place is convenient to the West 4th trains, clean and pleasant, with excellent massage and facial service. I've been several times, never had a bad experience there.
Pretty good service. I got the groupon for a gel mani regular pedi. Both time I went in took a pretty long time (90 min or over). They did do a good job, however, the lower rating is because each time I went in, the woman doing my pedicure (different women) went really hard on my feed and I ended up with scratches/bleeding! Thought it was a one off but happened consistently. Great, long lasting gel manis. Would recommend as it's good for the price, but proceed with caution or tell your technician to go gentle.
Donna was a pro!
Excellent service, the groupon for shellac manicure and regular pedicure was a great deal! Will visit again!
friendly staff, very courteous :-)
Wide selection of services at this no nonsense spa in Chelsea. I always ask for Alla and she is professional and pleasant.
I highly recommend this place.
Very friendly and professional...great place to pamper yourself!
This spa is my favorite of all the spa I tried. I been going to the spa since 2011 and I never had a bad experience. The spa runs on appointment, it's clean staff is very nice and they cater to your needs. I do all kinds of spa treatments here. I love the wax girl Ella she is the best at what she does.she takes her time and she makes you feel very comfortable. Keep up the great work guys.
I bought a gel manicure Groupon and tried this place out. Lots of services offered here and the front desk staff was very nice. I did wait over 30+ minutes for my appointment which was extremely frustrating. I was compensated for it in the end, so I will go back. My nails are 4+ days out and still look good with no signs of chipping!
I have enjoyed all my experiences
I loved Vada, it was very clean at the staff were professional. There is Starbucks conveniently across the street ????
Best Brazilian wax! Hands down.... ????????
horrible experience. my back still hurts
From the moment you walk into Vada Spa, you are greeted by a pleasant staff. The spa's environment, while nice, is unpretentious and that in itself is a huge plus. Gel manicures & pedicures are supreme. Waxing & threading technicians are skilled & efficient. I wholeheartedly recommend Vada Spa for any kind of pampering you wish. You won't be disappointed.
Worst haircut I had in my life at Vada Spa. I asked about layer cut but ended up getting only trimmed hair.???? Very disappointing.
I had hair cut, styles and red velvet hair coloring and highlights for more than $200 and within 3 days the red velvet turned to maroon-pink.
very talented staff. no frills, just quality people performing really good services.
I love coming to Vada spa because Dinorah gives the best massages and facials. I have been coming to see Dinorah for over a year and my skin and posture have improved tremendously. I used Roger terrible acne and Dinorah's pure acne treatment has helped me get rid of my acne and block heads and has brought a glow to my face. Dinorah is super caring and it is such a pleasure to see her. Make sure you schedule a visits with her for the best massage and facial, ever :))) I also love getting my nails done by Lia. Lia LOVES doing pedicures and always transform my exhausted feet into beautiful masterpieces. I love coming to see Lia because she is very diligent and always makes sure my mani and pedis look amazing. She is also very funny sonajero sure you come to see her :))
Awful awful awful. They can NEVER keep scheduled appointment time (and I've been going on and off for 4 years). You schedule in advance for 7, they call at 2 to see if you can come at 5, then at 4:15 call to let you know they can't see you until 5:30, and this is the better case scenario when they call, because most times they'll just let you come and sit there for 30 minutes past the scheduled appointment time. After four years of putting up with this, since I liked some of their masseurs, I'm finally done.
I discovered Vada Spa on Groupon and been obsessed with it ever since. I only trust them for the best bikini waxing EVER! Lisa is the best and i trust her hands 100% :)
Tramy was wonderful if it wasn't for her I think I would've lost it. Pedicure was horrible my feet looked exactly like how they walked in just with messy nail polish on top and not moisturized at all my feet were in the water for maybe 1 minute then the polish was applied. Nail polish selection is horrible. It's 2017 INVEST in perfect match gel polishes that comes with matching regular polish!! Who wants to walk around with two different pinks? But they all just say "it's ok it'll look the same" definitely not the case. The best part is, I'm guessing she is the manager, tells me that I should've moisturized more since winter is coming (mind you it's 76 degrees today) and that she does not see dryness. Totally disregarded everything I just said. So if you love your feet and want a great pedicure DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME
Good place and good quality service. Giving 4stars because I felt that my manicurist rushed through the process
Amazing! Great first experience at vada spa. Ira did my wax and she is FANTASIC! I will be returning. Totally worth the trip.
I never write reviews but I must write a review about this salon! I'm in town from Florida for a wedding. I stumbled apon this salon from just a random web search. Must say some of the reviews made me a Lil worried. So first let me start with when I walked in the salon it was clean and not busy at all.. the girl at the front desk Julia was very pleasant and got me squared right away with my lady Ana. I received the Tuesday special mani,pedi and Brazilian for &55????... Ana is a perfectionist And took great care of all details made sure she was satisfied with her work.. As I received my amazing services I was able to notice how everyone there seemed very pleasent and professional. The prices are very reasonable. Really just want to say thank you Ana for making me feel very comfortable and relaxed and doing such a awesome job. When I'm back in town I WILL be back.. and trust me I will be sending people here!
Haircut was ok but beware- they'll try to squeeze you for as much money as they can get out of you
Been here a few times, one of the receptionists even recognizes me and addresses me by name when I walk in. Dinorah is always my go to person for massages.
Very professional and upscale spa
First experience. So relaxing ????????
Was pleasantly surprised with this place. Found them on Groupon. Decent prices for great services! GREAT MASSAGE!
Dinorah provides you the BEST facials, massages, and experience you could ever imagine. She works very hard to make you look and feel amazing. Her positive energy is contagious. Ask for Dinorah! I promise she will keep you coming back. Take it from someone who used to hop place to place trying to use groupons to save money. Now I only go to Dinorah, she is worth everything!
Loved my massage witb alex and facial with ariana they were 5 stars, but my mani and pedi not a good thing. Just being honest did not like it at all. Seems like not everyone is important there.
Worst customer experience I've ever had. Got a voucher for a massage and called to let the team know I would be 5-10 mins late and if that was ok. They said they would check and that 5 mins was fine. When I got there they redeemed my voucher and then said that instead of a 60 mins massage, I was getting 45 mins. I ended up leaving as that was extremely unacceptable and promised to leave this review so that it doesn't happen to anyone else again. A few minutes later and already on my way home, money lost, upset and tired from almost running to make it on time, got a call from reception saying that they magically had rearranged the 60 mins massage. I don't know if the therapists are good or not, not questioning that, but the personnel at reception... they all deserve to be fired for treating customers like a piece of garbage. Never coming back to this place. Terrible, terrible experience.
Amazing ginger/brown sugar body scrub and Swedish massage.
Denora is life!!!
This was my second time attending Vada Spa. The first time was nice and Dignora, the person that conducted both my massage and facial was extremely professional (Yes, she knows her stuff). On the other hand, the person that took care of me yesterday was not as professional; did not really perform massages on my body and made a lot of noise moving me on the bed and moving herself with what appeared to be a chair for her to sit on while she gave me massages. Additionally, this spa can become noisy at times. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have what they need to perform facials in the rooms, and instead have mobile machines in the hallway, which they then need to bring into the rooms (Yes, all while you are lying on the massage bed). Furthermore, the workers tend to have conversations outside the massage rooms without taking into consideration the relaxation take of their clients.
4-stars for reliable waxes... regular availability, quick service, discounted packages and efficiency.
We went on Mother's Day and our experience was awesome. It was me, mom, 2 sisters,1 friend and sister in law. We got manicure and pedicure. The women are professionals and Ira was the best. Massages with hotstones. I got Vako, ladies he have hands of an Angel. He massaged every muscle in my body leaving me feeling like a brand new woman. Respectful and professional. We are definitly going back. They treated us excellent. Mom loved it !
The service and professionalism of the staff was great! I received massage from Vako who was super nice and respectful. I left feeling like a new woman. Will definitely go ahead.
Favorite place to get waxed. Got a deal on Groupon and have been going ever since. I got a chocolate wax from a lovely Russian woman who was extremely knowledgeable about product and the area ???? My official waxing spa
Very nice service. I like it.
Great staff, great prices, great services. Definitely recommend.
Vada SPA gets the job done! Fast Efficient and low cost. The people there are easy to deal with and amiable and oh- actually love their jobs!!!
I've been going there for two years now and I love it. I recommend Tatiana for waxing, eyebrow threading and nail. I also love Dinorah for facials, massages and body wraps. I already recommended all my friends at Vada spa for the services of theses ladies and they have also been going there for over a year and counting ?????????????? I love Vada spa especially these two ladies
Two years ago, my girlfriend said: "you should check out Vada because I think you deserve to be in good place about yourself and your beauty" and you know what, she was right. After I discovered that spa, I look younger, skinnier and my manicures last longer. Tip policy is optional. Girls always give me better services than anywhere else! Totally recommend.
My first time here was from a Groupon my daughter got me for Christmas..I absolutely loved it. Dinorah did my massage and facial. She is amazing...after that I been here another few times and love it. Ladies are very accommodating and very sweet.
God's Child H.
As always pleasant staff
Great service and very careful personnel. They can fix the seemingly unfixable!
Gary gave me the best massage I've ever had! Great experience..
I think they need trained people to do their services. They aren't nurses or doctors watching over the procedures. God forbid you try to get your records, you will get the run around. Save your money and your skin and go to a reputable place. Then to add insult to injury they want to be tipped for a procedure that is considered medical. They left me with a scar larger than my tattoo that took over 10 months to heal. Throughout that time they had their receptionist calling weekly pushing for me to continue my treatment when my skin wasn't ready! They would be annoyed as well. It wasn't till I told them that I had been seeking medical treatment from a Dermatalogist and surgeon that they eased up on me. I have spent hundreds correcting the damage they did with creams and such. The best part was trying to get them to send me the records of the levels they put the pico sure machine to. Meanwhile it's right there ready for their viewing in case I decide to get another package! They actually had the audacity to ask me if I wanted more tattoo removal treatments!!!! I thought it was a joke. I shouldn't have to get my lawyer involved in order to get records that belong to me!!!!! This place is an all around joke and should be out of business. That's what I think. They pass off the title as manager to a woman named Kate who then tells me she can't give me my records and refers to Jim Burke. They are lucky I don't take legal action against them. I just want my records so I know how to proceed going forward in my treatment and what to avoid. Please beware!!!!

I used to get a lot of ingrown hair under my neck and I tried many different products that didn't work. I decided to get laser hair removal at Vada Spa and that resolved my issue. My face is very smooth and I don't have irritation problems anymore. My hair is really thick and due to this, I had more laser sessions than average and still continue to grow some little and thin facial hair. Overall, you get good results but you need to be patient.
Prices are awesome. Utilities and machines are of the highest quality. They always have specials and discounts. I love coming here for my laser treatments the technicians are well trained as well in all skin types.
Very good service. Great experience overall. I saw a groupon and decided to call and ask for it, they told me not to buy and that they will honor it at the Spa, which they did.
Felt like I was in trouble during my whole visit and my technician kept trying to up-sell me on services and packages.
Laura Calçada I B.
Brasilian waxing, meravelous and not painful
I bought a Groupon for tattoo removal after doing research as to the best laser that was on the market. They do have the best machine so I decided to give it a try. My tattoo was old faded and only one color black. After going for the consultation they ensured me that after my 3 sessions my tattoo would be nearly invisible. (Not to mention they are slightly rude at the front desk and stare you down until you tip the technicians). I have went to three session and can officially say my skin was burned and damaged. The tattoo is fuzzy and turned a dark brown. I took extra caution to not go into the sun when I was getting my sessions. I even covered it with medical gauze as recommended. Needless to say they denied it an because of the waiver you sign you can receive no refund. Thank you Vada Spa and Salon.
I have been going to Vada Spa for over a year now, and every time I go it simply amazes me... The Laser technicians are wonderful! They make sure you are comfortable, and talk you through the process! my face & I love Vada Spa!
I love this spa. I always go to Ella. I usually do a chocolate Brazilian. She is friendly n keeps me very distracted w great convo while waxing. I definitely recommend this place.
My massage was relaxing and no talking while getting massage to purchase products..I highly recommend Vada Spa????
I love Vada. Lucy is the best at facials - seriously. She is so good and I always leave with a fresh face and it looks great for days.
Very nice experience. I will definitely go there again.
I went to Alla (not sure if I'm spelling her name right, blonde curly/wavy hair) for full leg laser. She was very thorough and I know this because usually I grow leg hair like a man, but after my treatment with her, I only saw like 4 or 5 hairs total between both legs grow back within a week. I think those hairs were missed but hey, considering i had hundreds maybe thousands, i think thats pretty great. The rest took about 6 to 8 weeks to grow back but was reduced by atleast 25% and what did grow back was softer and finer. Keep in mind it is painful and there is some minor welting that happens for 1 to 2 days after and my legs were very itchy for a couple days after,also the little burnt hairs stay in the pores until the new regrowth pushes them out, which, as I said for me, took 6 to 8 weeks. It looked as if i had black stubble but you just have to be patient until they are pushed out or fall out. I love my results and I really appreciate how comfortable she made me feel and most of all how thorough she was. I don't even live in NYC, I live in Chicago but I'm going back March 22nd to see her for another session.
I went to Vada Spa for electrolysis, and had a good experience. The staff were friendly, courteous, and respectful. I was able to make an appointment last minute, and they were responsive by email. The electrolygist was professional and efficient. The prices are a little high, but comparable to other places in the neighborhood.
I've been going to Vada Spa for years and I love it :) I go for full body waxing, very thorough, clean, and professional always doing a very good job which is why i always come here for my waxing. Highly recommend it.
have been going to Vada for years - terrific service: prompt, courteous, and professional. Lovely specialists - from laser technicians to massage therapists. Knowledgeable. Would highly recommend to anyone!
I had such a great experience, I usually go to another spa and went with a friend to try it. Dinorah was FANTASTIC, she did my massage and facial and was amazing. the Mani and Pedi was done beautifully, the ladies were engaging and very nice, I am looking to schedule another visit for my birthday in 2 weeks. its a must visit.
Went with my girlfriend and we enjoyed ourselves very much
Best Groupon Massage EVER!
I found out about Vada through a groupon that I bought for myself. I had a wonderful experience. The surroundings were clean and soothing. Victoria gave me both the facial and massage. She was professional, personable and did an amazing job. I felt so relaxed when I left and I will definitely go back again.
I went here for a haircut + wash after a recommendation from a friend. I was very hesitant after reading reviews online, but this was literally one of the best cuts I have had in sometime. Maria was just fantastic! I am definitely sticking to this place and would strongly recommend Maria for mens haircut
Got a groupon for shellac mani. The girl at the spa did a shoddy job with the polish-all lumpy, didn't dry properly, I feel that even at groupon price I've wasted my time and money with this place. Not to mention that the technician was as unfriendly as they get, I felt that she's doing me a favor by doing my nails. Go somewhere else.
I first heard about Vada Spa via a Groupon offer 2 years ago. I've had okay experiences with mani-padi service and good ones with facial service. By far, my best experience is the massage services done by Gary. He's actually the reason why I continue to book massage appointments at Vada Spa. Gary is a professional masseuse who is truly gifted with hands that workout every knot and sore spot on my body! I feel no pain and minimal soreness afterwards. I am convinced that Gary is very passionate about making clients feel relieved in their massage session and beyond it. He always provides me with stretching tips to do at home to rid pain, and they work! My overall massage experience with Gary has been wonderful and plan to keep him as my masseuse until he decides to retire!
First time I got a Brazillian bikini wax, the woman made me feel incredibly comfortable. That's a rarity when you have your lady parts exposed to a total stranger who hasn't even bought you a couple drinks. I've been going back ever since because I never feel strange. They're really great!
This place is amazing! Got a cheap groupon for a gel mani and regular pedi. My technician, Rosana, was not only sweet but thorough (and she had great nails herself which is always a plus). My favorite part was that everyone actually spoke English! I know it sounds silly but it's SO important at a salon to be thoroughly understood (especially with a facial or massage). Nail color selection could've been better but prices were great and I'm definitely coming back.
Irina is the best in New York! love the customer service I always receive at Vada Spa.
clean & efficient spa. I've come here for a variety of services, and have been pleased each time I come in. even if you make an appointment, be prepared to wait a few minutes while they set up for you -- it seems like they don't prep any of the rooms/tables until you check in for your appointment. overall, good service -- a bit pushy on the tips, though.
Friendly staff, clean and open space. I'll be back.
I decided to send my girlfriend here for a pampering session and she has raved about their wonderful treatment here. Comfort all over the place and her feet has never looked better! Other body parts look great too after her session but I'll refrain from talking about it cause thats grown folks business! She suggested I go because their masseuse game is on point and if they are as good at rubbing my kinks out as they were with her body then I'm all for it!!
Probably one of the best spas I've been to in NYC. The staff were quite helpful and welcoming. I liked that they were patient and gave me a variety of options. Definitely eased my fear of getting a Brazilian wax. Not to mention, the process itself was smooth and quick. I recommend it to any nervous waxer :)
My toes were in dyer need of being done. I had a ton of cute shoes for summer time but I couldn’t wear them just yet because I had to top them off with a fresh pedi and why not go all out and my nails done to. I couldn’t believe how trendy and modern this place is. All of their equipment and staff was very professional I felt very relaxed in this chic little spot. It was a very chill atmosphere I can’t wait to go back to get my feet revitalized again.
Great staff. I was scared when I went in. after talking to the rep I felt better. I recommend this place for laser Brazilian hair removal
It was okay nothing special. Had a massage and pedi with my girl. Didn't have to wait which is always important I dont have all the time to wait especially in a busy city with subways. Pay was fair.
