I went for the first time to use the infrared sauna.Once I stepped out of the elevator- I felt relaxed and calmer - forgetting the noise and chaos of nyc living. The woman at the front desk greeted me and after a short intake I was led to the upstairs sauna.It was a very relaxing sauna - in its own room with adjacent spa shower. It was truly a nice way to take a break and receive the benefits of the sauna on my aching, tense muscles. I would highly recommend trying the sauna and I am planning my next visit to try the flotation therapy. I also saw they offer yoga classes and other spa services. More...

I have been coming here for years after groupon introduced me to this spa a long time ago. I always get my microdermabrasions with Natalia she is the absolute best. I am very particular about my skin and only trust Natalia. The receptionist Camille is very helpful and friendly, I have seen many receptionists go through this office and Camille is a great addition hopefully she stays. Go here for the best facials by Natalia More...

I went here for my first infrared session and I felt so comfortable from the moment I stepped in. The sauna was comfortable and clean and I had a lovely shower afterwards. Lotions and gel and shampoo and conditioner all provided. The receptionist was lovely and welcoming and there is a great airy solarium where they do yoga; I'll definitely try that again. More...

I have floated in the past, but I found the facilities & equipment/setup preferable to the other I've been to. The staff was clearly & concisely informative about operation. They don't use pods - they have a superior design with a glass door (which doesn't impact the experience negatively whatsoever) to lower anyone's chances of claustrophobia (which isn't a problem for me but others I know won't try for that reason). The technology makes it work well, but feel less closed in. So that's a score! They had nice products for your use when the float ends. She was also nice & helpful. They had a lot more services there too that looked interesting - next time I'm in town I hope to check some of them out. My boyfriend had been wanting to try floating, so we both were able to go at the same time in different spaces & he really enjoyed it as well. A very peaceful & much needed experience that I am grateful I stumbled across. More...

I did one float. It was fine, obviously relaxing, and I enjoyed it. A few years later I tried it again and it was a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL of relaxation. It was transporting. It was so relaxing that I lost mental touch with my body. I was 95% asleep and would've sworn I was in bed at home - I could feel the pillow and sheets - but obviously I was not. I have NEVER been that relaxed, ever, in any environment or under ANY chemical, physical, or other circumstances. It felt at least 3 times longer than it really was. When it was over it took me at least a full minute to be able to use my brain to convince my body to move. I was SO relaxed that it was a little freaky. If you need this kind of relaxation in your life, give this place a try - and try going more than once, because like other kinds of experiences, it seems the first time you're just figuring out what it IS, and the second time and thereafter you can actually fully enjoy its benefits.The whole place is sparkling clean, peaceful, and welcoming. Alena at the front desk was SO nice. More...

I loved the gal that greeted me and spent time answering each of my questions. I would love to have her acknowledged for such great customer service and knowledge that she displayed. The space has a sacred feeling. So please omg to the senses. The salt room is where I visited first and within a few seconds I was engulfed into this bean pod that was so comfortable. Before I knew it 45 mins had flown by. I was shown the other areas and I will go soon to the floating pool. That looks so relaxing. I can't wait to return. Everyone needs to experience the Floating Lotus. More...

I tried the salt room and infrared sauna.  I didn't really see the benefit of the salt room but the dry sauna was great.  The salt room is a very small room with just one bed and heating laps .  If there's a yoga class in session, the room is not sound-proof and you can actually heard the instructor talk, but I was so tired that day I actually fell asleep for a short while.  The sauna is right across the hall and has it's own shower (not full bathroom, no toilet) so it was an easy transition.  The sauna was already heated and set to 30 minutes, I started sweating at 15 minute mark but it felt very comfortable.  There are water and towels in the room and they also automatically build in extra 20-30 minutes for you to shower after the sauna so no one will interrupt you.Online appointment is very easy and payment and quick at the end of the session.

Came to this establishment as a first time floater and was blown away! Beth immediately greeted me and answered all my questions before I was seated in their beautiful lobby and helped myself to some delicious tea. Beth then brought me to the beautifully designed floating room and thoroughly explained how everything worked. My floating experience was incredible! The tank was very comfortable, clean and spacious. I did not feel remotely frightened or claustrophobic which were my fears. Will be returning again! More...

Had such a wonderful experience here. Everyone was so nice, the facility is clean and beautiful. I celebrated my 30th birthday here with a float, salt cave, and sauna session and it was so relaxing and exactly what I was looking for. I mentioned that I was having some sinus issues lately and asked for recommendations and the woman up front called the acupuncturist and let me speak to him directly. He even offered to give me his number so I could text him with questions. I highly recommend any service they offer here. More...

Perfect place for an infrared spa break. Appreciated the warmth and quiet intimacy of the lobby as a transition from the bustle (and cold) sidewalk outside. The sauna was warmed for me while I checked in on the ipad, reassuring me that the time I booked could be taken advantage of in full.The sauna room was impeccably clean with towels already laid out within the sauna itself and more available post-shower, slippers were available (though I'd brought my own out of habit). I appreciated the brief introduction to adjusting the temperature controls and the full array of toiletries provided alongside plenty of drinking water and a great hair dryer. With a lockable door and inviting lighting, having a little sanctuary absorbing all that heat for only thirty minutes, upon leaving it felt like the equivalent of a full day out of the office!

Barbara was amazing, so helpful & just a lovely spirit. Answered all of my (ridiculous) questions & made me feel so calm & comfortable. The facility is beautiful -- such a great vibe & aesthetically perfect. Every detail has been thought of from walking in the door to the float itself. Loved everything. I thought the float would be scary or claustrophobic, but it's not AT ALL, at least not how Floating Lotus has set it up. It's literally genius & just feels like you're getting into bed for the perfect rest, except in a pool of warm, floaty water. First, you enter into a "changing" room, equipped with anything you may need -- qtips, lotion, etc. they've thought of it. You put your ear plugs in & take a shower, in such a beautifully designed stone shower with a PERFECT shower head, you never want to get out lol. They give you towels, shampoo, conditioner, & body wash. Now, you already have your ear plugs in, so you've gotten used to the sound piece. The lights in the changing room are on a motion sensor. You step into the pod to float & there is another light in there that you control. You can leave it on or turn it off at your leisure once you feel all cozy resting on your headpiece. So you flip that off like a night stand light then as you're laying with your eyes closed, the motion sensor light goes off. So you gradually & gracefully go into darkness. It's not like you're plunged into darkness / zero sound and have to get used to it. This to me was the biggest deal and the most well thought out part. THIS is what made it not terrifying. No one shuts you into a tank, into the sound proof total darkness and leaves you for an hour while you breathe through a pounding heart & anxiety ridden body attempting to get used to it & convince yourself yes, this was a good idea! NO. Quite the opposite in fact. A lovely soul gives you a tour, explains everything, & then you gradually slip into zero sound, zero light, & zero gravity, and float like it's the most natural thing to do ... and then you get to shower again after :)))And the next day What chronic pain? It was the first time in 10 years I stepped out of bed without wincing. I can't say I was cured, but I can say the difference was extreme. I felt it in my day to day & in my yoga practice. The difference in my spine was amazing, as well as other areas I experience pain from prior injuries. So, whether you want to relax or you're going for chronic pain, I highly recommend. I've never experienced anything like it and will certainly return. ONLY to Floating Lotus though!! (Hope this review helped you!) More...

I found Floating Lotus through a Living Social deal and I will definitely be returning! I was looking for a a float spa in the city and this one was highly rated. The space is really nice and clean and the floating room itself is gorgeous. The staff were very helpful and thorough guiding me through the process of how the float session works, and after my session when I wanted tour of the space, the staff was glad to show me around. Plus, for first time clients, you are eligible for more AMAZING discounts on future services! I wound up purchasing 3 more float sessions with significant savings! This is an excellent demonstration of customer service and a great way to keep people coming back for regular self-care. I'm glad I found my floating spa! More...

There are not many places in New York City that allow you to escape from the craziness of New York City. I walked into floating Lotus and was greeted by an incredibly welcoming staff. The space is calming, clean, and creatively designed. I showed up to float for the first time (a gift from a friend) and it was exactly what I needed to relax and de-stress. I immediately purchased another one for a future date because I was so impressed with Floating Lotus. The staff was so nice and they were just good down to earth people. They were all available and patient. Answered all of my questions.  Made me feel welcome and comfortable. I'm definitely going back multiple times. And I look forward to it. More...

I have been floating for over 15 years and I really enjoyed finding this gem!  The staff was so friendly and welcoming it started my experience off on a great note.  The room has a nice vanity with everything you will need is there (water, towels, ear plugs, etc.) . The shower is super clean with shampoo, shower gel and conditioner.  The float rooms have plenty of space (not a pod, but an actual room with a door you can close or leave open).  When I was done I was offered tea (I chose, Lazy Daze as it matched my relaxed mood after a wonderful float).  I chatted with the staff members while drinking my tea and had some good laughs.  They offered a special price for my next three floats and I grabbed the opportunity.  This will be my new relax location!

I love this place.  I have been only once-Used a Groupon for a microdermabrasion.  Fantastic experience overall.  I was expecting a 'normal' NY midtown environment and was happily surprised to enter an oasis!  Such a delightful respite from the summer grit of NYC.  I have been to many 'spas' as the term is very loosely applied these days, but FLOATING LOTUS is true to the name.  Calm, pretty and staffed with friendly, helpful and talented staff.  I bought a 3 pack and will be trying deep cleansing and the tank many people rave about.Another thing!  No PUSHING product by shaming one into thinking they're not taking care of their skin.  Thank you Natalya and the rest!

Floating Lotus has one of the best Beginners Yoga Classes around. Before I took Aliza's beginner class here, I was dead set against yoga. She changed my perspective and its really changed my life. The studio itself is also lovely- so sooo nice to see the sky as you flow. I was THRILLED to see Aliza on the schedule for the power flow class- this was a great progression and advance from her beginner's class. I only rated one less star because I wished they offered more classes and sometimes the rush hour classes are full to the brim, but it doesn't keep me away when my fave teacher is around! #worthit More...
