The atmosphere was pleasant, but honestly, I felt the manicurist could have done better with the cuticles and the paint chipped after one day.

What You'll Get

Bodies, like championship trophies, need to be taken out and polished regularly both to avoid tarnishing and to infuriate the runner-up in last year’s snowshoe marathon. Give yourself the gold-medal treatment with today’s Groupon to SpaLab, located on West Thirty-Sixth Street. Choose between two options:

  • For $50, you get a 45-minute winter-melon massage (a $220 value).
  • For $79, you get a 60-minute winter-melon facial (a $175 value).

SpaLab offers a bevy of indulgent and refreshing spa and facial services. The winter-melon massage expunges the body of entrenched tension with a reverie-inducing head-and-neck rubdown. After glazing the skin with a frosting-like mixture made with real winter melons, a certified therapist kneads rigid muscles for a soothing release of pent-up pressure. The aroma of fruit, combined with natural oils, makes for a relaxing experience akin to lounging on a bed of strawberry Jello as it floats through cantaloupe-scented rush-hour traffic.

Or opt for the winter-melon facial, a hydrating treatment for parched skin that deep cleans and exfoliates using a customized cooling mask made with winter melon, kiwi, palma roas, lavender oils, and nourishing vitamins. The leftover mask mixture is packaged and sent with each client to be used at home as a pore purifier or fragrant tile grout.

Owned by published author and renowned massage therapist Larry Costa, SpaLab is an innovative business dedicated to health and well-being. The cozy spa creates many of its skincare products on-site, using raw ingredients such as cranberry seed oil, palm-tree root, and eye of newt to coax radiant and refreshing shines from skins.


SpaLab was written up in Time Out New York last year. Ten Yelpers give it a three-star average.

  • I first went to Spa Lab about a month ago for a massage. It was a great experience and I'm still feeling great! The staff was very skilled and listened to my needs. The spa itself was modern and clean with a wide variety of products. – Jennifer P., Yelp, 9/1/10
  • Everyone there was so friendly and helpful. Not snooty like some of my other spa experiences... It was exactly what I needed. – Bridie C., Yelp, 7/21/10
