I had a 90-minute massage with Pilai which was excellent (cost: $160 plus tip). It is Thai massage, which moves the joints and uses pressure points, which seems to make it more effective than just rubbing the body. I would give the massage five stars, but the building security guy was so horrible, that I would not go back, since... More

I went to Pilai in July 2013after having tried so many different types of massage and therapists to help with the several body aches related to my lower back, the cramping muscles and even a rotator cuff injury. Pilai has patiently worked with me, releasing every tight muscle, with discipline, patience, a very special attention. It is now October 2013... More

Just got off a long flight and went to see Pilai to get my muscles back in place . The new location is brighter and more contemporary, definitely appealing. What hasn't changed is the quality of Pilai's craft; I had a lot of massages around the world and she's top notch without reservation. Her signature massage combines different styles and... More

My first Thai Massage and it was incredible. Pilai manages to stretch you in all directions while massaging at the perfect places. You wear clothes...not naked. The pinched nerve I've had in my hip for the past couple years is gone! I agree with the other review, not for the weak of heart. I hope Pilai is still here when... More

This was the best massage ever. Not for the faint of heart, but you'll appreciate the high impact of the massage as energy pathways get unblocked and blood flow is restored to your entire body. This is a must before you go walking in NYC. NOTE: It's on the 15th floor (1502).

is an excellent, efficient, sensitive therapist. Her Thai massage therapy provides me with increased blood circulation, oxygenation and other benefits like removal of pain in my legs due to cramps. I can recommend her to all my friends. Ursula C.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
