Like Body By Brooklyn spa in New York, VodaSpa is a lot of spa and just a little banya. It won't be the experience that Russian's are accustomed to, but if you are an American and want to brush against Russian traditions without living a comfort of a luxury spa - this is the place for you.

This is what my friend Dasha had to say about VodaSpa:
"All is nice and luxury but there are only 3 lounge chairs and for most people no other sitting area. They are really missing some tables for people to come in groups and hang out... And all employees are not Russian and not really trained. Like they would bring cold water for the stove into the bath and have no idea how to do platza properly."
