This was my first floating experience so I wasn’t sure what to expect but let me tell you...it was amazing! Chad did... a superb job of making me feel welcome and comfortable, such an awesome dude. He showed me the ropes, answered all my questions and was waiting for me on the big comfy sofa in the lobby with a cup of tea when I got out.The tanks are huge and have different lighting and music options, or you can shut it all off and float in the void if you want. If you’ve never tried it before, or are just looking for a next level floating experience, I highly recommend Ocean Lab. I’ve heard from several people that it’s the best spot in town and I can totally see why. I’ll be back for sure!read more

I could've given 'The Ocean Lab' a 5-Star Rating upon my first 5 minutes of being there. Great float tanks, better... community & best staff. The establishment is clean (which matters more than ever nowadays); Eric, Chad, & Tyler, always do their best to accommodate whoever walks through the door. I am anchored to the ideology the success of mental health & wellness largely depends on how one feels within their own environment. I attribute a large part of the healing/relaxation when floating to the welcome, calm, & genuine environment the team at Ocean Lab creates. As much as I know you probably want to dive deeper and swim through thoughts about if a float tank is right for you or which float spa you should visit when in Austin, Texas- don't. Save yourself time, float with confidence and peace of mind at Ocean Lab. You won't be disappointed.read more

Ocean Lab is the most relaxing place in Austin. Whether you want to sweat with friends in the community sauna or enjoy... a private sauna experience, they have either option for you. And if you want to melt away in a float tank, you have to try it. The float tanks are massive (easily fit 3+ adults in a single tank) and I generally have the best night sleep ever following a session in a float tank. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!read more

The Ocean Lab could easily be described as heaven on earth. A group of 9 of us came to Austin for a bachelor party. We... each enjoyed snack sized float sessions and time in the group Sauna. The Ocean Lab was the perfect detox session we needed in order to cure our hang overs and enjoy the rest of our time in Austin. We all felt like new men after our time at Ocean Lab. Cannot recommend enoughread more

I can't believe it took me so long to try floating, and I'm convinced this is the best place to do it. I already knew... these nice infrared saunas are great but man, floating is a whole new experience. Also, everyone here is really nice and I enjoyed just being in this space, so that's a big plus. Wonderful, just go do it!read more

I had a truly lovely experience at The Ocean Lab. The salt bath was the most relaxed I’ve ever been. I also really... enjoyed the sauna and lounging on the bean bag bed. The staff was warm and friendly and they really pampered me. At the end, I got to dry my hair with their Dyson blow dryer!read more

This place is awesome! Starting at the beginning: the front lobby is so relaxing and welcoming. The staff, Briana and... Eric, were so knowledgeable, kind, and funny. They truly made the experience so much better. I sat in the infrared sauna first which was great! I normally hate saunas because I can’t breathe in that heat, but this sauna heats your body temperature rather than the air. It was refreshing and detoxifying. After that, I did a 60-min float in the BIGGEST float tank ever. It was so roomy and the “starry sky” at the top was my favorite. You feel like you’re floating in space. The wave sounds were peaceful and I had very transformative float. I honestly could spend all day here ( I kinda did to be honest). Highly recommend The Ocean Lab to any and everyone!! Will be back soon for sure.read more

Floating was the most relaxing experience I have ever had, but what blew my mind is that the relaxation is not limited... to your time in the tank. It follows you home. I am also an artist and I noticed that it also enhanced my creativity and it opened up my mind to an altered creative state. Independently from their amazing services, what I personally enjoyed the most that wasn't comparable to other places I have been is the clean atmosphere and amazing customer experience. The moment you walk in, you are welcomed and greeted as if you are already a part of that community. Tyler and Eric made me feel extremely comfortable, open, and I was willingly to even open up about stress points and situations that led me to book the float in the first place. I really enjoy going there and I always leave with a clear and concise state of mind.read more

LOVE The Ocean Lab! Everything about it. The float tanks are amazing. The people are awesome. The Infrared Saunas are... so good. And one of them is really big which was cool to have a group of friends all fit so easily. And the contrast therapy with the Ice Baths was icing on the cake.And did I mention the people are awesome? I left feeling cared for and cared about. Obviously a big part of that was the float and contrast therapy, but Eric and the others running The Ocean Lab were also a big part of the great experience. I will absolutely be back when I'm in Austin. My only regret is that I live an airplane ride away so I can't go all the time!read more

This is my second float experience, and I have to say that this was by far the best experience. I had all the room I... needed and more. Topped it off with a sauna session, the fresh wood smells completely added to the experience. Everyone was super friendly and glad I dropped in to experience floating. Was a family friendly experience where they even offer couples floats. I feel I made new friends in the process, one word Amazing.read more

The Ocean Lab has quickly become one of my favorite spots in Austin.The float tanks are the nicest ones I've been in,... and the big saunas are perfect for getting your sweat on before floating. I like that the larger one is set up with the benches in a circle, it gives it more of a community feel.They've also taken out all the stops to make it a great experience. You get fresh tea when you come in, the towels are really soft, there's a cozy lounge area when you come out, and they've started organizing events like guided meditations.Definitely my favorite float center I've been to, and quickly becoming one of my favorite spots to meet up with people.read more
