Mothers day

This was a meet up with my daughter for a few days. We had visited Float before and appreciate the personal attention they always give.

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

This is the best spa in Santa Barbara. Clean, excellent services and fit 4 of us in at the same time on the day we called for appointments. Great facials- we all came out of our massages or facials raving! Perfect for a girls weekend and pampering OR solitude. Wish the women's bathroom/locker-room was a little more spacious but everything... More

Our spahhhhhh day definitely left us floating in the clouds! My boyfriend and I planned a weekend trip to Santa Barbara and found Float through a quick google search. Neither of us had treated ourselves in awhile, so we were really looking forward to getting away and relaxing. We were we pleased from the moment we walked in the door... More
