With an extensive menu of services ranging from laser hair removal to ear piercing, Vada Spa is an affordable one-stop shop. On the first floor, manicure stations outfitted with red leather chairs and mosaic tabletops face the pedicure chairs, which include massage settings and Jacuzzi foot tubs. Private rooms for laser treatments and waxing are divided between the ground and the basement levels, where services include hair removal, skin brightening and resurfacing, and spider-vein zapping. Vada’s small hair salon and the spa rooms are on the second floor, as is a tiny outdoor patio where clients can relax pre- or post-service. Upstairs, dark hardwood floors, candles, and ambient music set the tone for skin services like the 30-minute Express Facial using Pevonia Botanica products and the Chocolate Facial, which uses antioxidant-rich organic cocoa to hydrate and nourish skin. Microdermabrasion and glycolic peels are available, as are body treatments like a seaweed wrap, brown-sugar polish, or deep-tissue massage.
Indoor surfing, spinning lovefests, a luxurious pig-placenta facial, and more.
