LOVED IT!!! – Loved the warm feel of this spa...it was cozy and great for our small co-ed group! Loved that our VIP area was co-ed and we could all hang out together in the Jacuzzi. The treatments were amazing...I loved my massage and almost feel asleep it was so relaxing. Loved the fact that we could have drinks in between our treamtents. Overall a very good experience and I can't wait to come back!!! Thank you VodaSpa!!!
Amazing Place – My first experience at VodaSpa was an amazing one! Not only were the staff and technicians wonderful, the environment and modern atmostphere was beautiful and right on point. I loved every minute of it and highly recommend to everyone!!
Fantastic Experience – From the receptionist to the massage therapists and everyone in between top level service i have ever had. Being it my first time being at a spa all other spas definitely have a standard to meet. Voda Spa transports your mind and body to shut out the outside world and come into their space/world for however long you want to. The plus side is this place closes at midnight so if your out and about in the west side and need to wind down from a busy night , its the relaxation destination.
Love This Spa! – Voda Spa is a great place to be especially on the weekend and is fun with friends you can eat lunch, have drinks and relax at the same time! I love the trendy hotel/ resort feel and everyone is super nice and not snobby which I just cannot stand. I have been to spa's all over LA and this one is definitely one of the BEST yet. I will be back to Voda Spa a lot that's for sure.
A fun yet relaxing experience! – I've been to many spas. Voda spa stands out because its also a great place for couples day at the spa or with friends. they have co-ed areas and a beautiful full bar and food. Who would of expected great food at a spa but he food was amazing. I will definitely go back! My massage was fantastic and they have one of a kind treatments that are really nice. =)
Not so much... – While the space is impressive, I did not have a good experience at this "spa". First of all, upon check in, I was asked to leave some of my valuables in a safety deposit box. What?!
In addition, there was a family there. I'm sorry but it seems very inappropriate for children to be jumping in the pool and jacuzzi at a spa. I tried to get some peace by heading into the steam room where I found multiple couples talking and giving eachother massages with oil. Ok. So I tried the "relaxation room" which was basically also a singles scene where men were receiving footrubs from women and a loud sports game blared from the TV. My massage was nice but I was completely distracted from this jarring experience. Skip it.
BEST SPA IN LOS ANGELES – JACK DEMONS,
Dude i want to work here i am an african american male massage therapist who speaks japanese ,korean thai ,spanish, hebrew ,dutch ,farsi[persian) ,finnish ,chinese ,swedish ,german, and many others but no matter what i do none of the spas are hiring i have licensing and all appropiate certifications cant a guy get a job what about obama jeez thats so L.a.
Thanks for the great rating.
Pros of the facility are well described.
Cons are based on the personal perception, interior design was mentioned in the architectural digest and other magezines.
Well, we are not trying to make any points here, everybody entitled for their own opinion.
By the way parking is FREE!!!
Only if you're into the whole coed spa experience... – I was given a gift certificate for an 80 massage at Voda, and was STRONGLY encouraged to come over an hour early to indulge in their many saunas. I was a bit taken aback to learn that the pool, jacuzzi and saunas are all co-ed. Personally, I felt awkward as the only female around, with a bunch of large, hairy Russian men. The saunas themselves were very nice, but it was hard to relax as the only woman surrounded by men. I also found it awkward being overseen by the male workers who stand around the pool areas and watch the clients "relax". I was told I would be taken into a waiting room 10 minutes prior to my massage appointment, but I wound up realizing it was 5 minutes til, and finding my own way there. My massage began late, but ended promptly. The therapist was very sweet, though a bit chatty for my taste, which I found distracting but I couldn't bring myself to be rude and ask her to be quiet. After the massage I was forced to put my cold, wet bathing suit BACK ON since the thin terry cloth robes they give you are rather transparent. Immediately following my massage I was handed a bill to fill out the tip portion, which I found REALLY ODD. Certainly something that would be better handled at the front desk-- I felt bad for my massage therapist having to basically ask me to tip her as part of her routine (clearly instituted by managment). Then I wasn't sure what on earth to do with the bill since the therapist had dashed off, so a worker took it for me to the front desk. The locker room was small, and two hair brushes came apart in my hand while trying to blowdry my (tangle free) hair. The woman at the front desk said it must have been because of my long hair, but I frankly have never had a brush break in two on me before... I also found that it would have been nice to have plastic bags available for your wet bathing suit (required, since the place is coed) . Overall not my cup of tea.
very nice but... – after my treatment I was ready to shop the store..
but not much to buy and no beauty items like bliss, shopnataliebeauty, decleor, etc...
if they bring those items there I am there everyday!!!!
Great spa for couples! Full bar & great food! – Being from out of town, we relied on the website for our Monday "day at the spa". We were
pleasantly surprised and loved the entire experience. Great idea having a full bar area w/ flat
screen TVs and a co-ed facility. How many times have you gone to the spa with your hubby
only to say goodbye once you arrive to be secluded by gender. Super clean, great saunas/ steam
rooms and a great massage. The food was a little slower than usual arriving, but was GREAT
once we got it. The owners were very nice and eager to hear our input. The VIP room is really a cool
concept- own jacuzzi, private massage room, couch and flat screen. Great room for anything from a
bridal party to a couples birthday event.
The modern fire/water/wood theme is really neat!
Things to improve: Only 2 things: First would only be the water issue. Definitley need more cucumber or lemon spa water easily accessible from all sauna locations. Walking to a water fountain to fill a plastic cup
is not appealing and does not promote all the hydrating you need to do at a spa... especially a spa
that has so many different types of saunas. We left there very dehydrated. Pitchers of infused water
can easily be stationed in the locker rooms, near the iced-washcloths and in all the waiting areas.
Infuse the water then strain into pitchers or caraffes if you don't want to actually float fruit or cucumbers.
A green tea or herbal tea area would also be nice.
Second would be more lounge chairs by the pool.
I cannot wait to come back with my husband. Very nice spa experience!
