Although this spa is not large it is well appointed and beautiful. Everything was exceptionally clean and comfortable- everything seemed to be new and fresh. There was no sauna or steam room but that was okay with us. My husband and I both had 80 minute massage sessions. I chose the added enhancement of being dry brushed prior to my... More

Just like they say, Float Away. Over the fourth of July weekend I had a wonderful experience at FLOAT!. I had the 3 hour Island Hopper and feel it was well worth it. All 3 therapist were wonderful. The entire staff was professional and thoughtful. I would definitely return.

Poor scores for both therapists in our couples massage. Luxury does not describe the treatment. Changing room was tight if another person is in there with you. Waiting room is nice, with tea. But couples room was...eh. Massage service was not up to standards. I don't complain if a therapist is slightly off, or has a bad day. This was... More

My facial and salt foot rub at Float were both amazing! Heidi, my therapist was professional thoughtful and extremely gentle. She explained the process and listened to my feedback. The facilities though a bit small were clean, sleek and tranquil. The staff were friendly and attentive. I was given a gift certificate for this visit and being a SB local,... More

Just visited this gem yesterday and I fell in love with this place immediately. Upon walking in the door the aroma takes over and puts you in a sense of relaxation. We did the 50 min float special and the therapist were amazing. They inquired if we had any special request and focused on what we presented. They were very... More

The atmosphere and service were superb. It seems like every service they offer is at least a small step above other spas - longer massages, better packages, more inventive... It was quite the treat. They accommodate groups very well and can even do a private day for your party.

I visited Float with two girlfriends. All three of us got a 50 minute massage and a 50 minute facial. While the facilities are quite sparse (one restroom, shower and changing area, and no other amenities like a sauna or steam room), the treatments were fabulous which is why we came, so we were quite happy with our experience. The... More

The spa treatment was very nice. The room I was in was a bit bright due to being in the back, south facing room during the afternoon and I could hear sounds from the side parking lot during my entire treatment. The spa is not as clean as I would like my spa to be. The carpet on the steps... More
