Best spa experience ever!
I got my second 'mani/pedi' here a couple days ago and I was very pleased with my experience here. (As a straight male I feel like I have to use quotes there. I don't get enough manicures or pedicures to really need to abbreviate the words.) I had only had one mani/pedi before but it was performed by a man in India and let me tell you it wasn't even close to this.

First of all it seems like Cocoon only hires attractive young women for its staff. Lovely. They are very personable and accomodating and everything is generally set up to provide maximum relaxation. The chair was very comfortable. Despite 45 minutes of doing what they do to your fingers and toes with what appear to be sharp metal instruments, there was no pain as I was lulled into a dreamlike state while reading Esquire and drinking a beer they brought me from the restaurant downstairs.
All in all it was a great experience and I think I will get another mani/pedi in the future. I never knew my fingernails could look like this.
Also I got a massage here a few months ago which was even about ten times more relaxing than the mani/pedi. Recommended!
Pros: Manicure, Pedicure, Massage, Waxing and the Staff!!
Cons: Wish I'd be rich to go every day!
