When a busy day at work or play has you feeling stressed and overwhelmed, it’s time to take a spa break. Whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat or an all-out spa experience, New York City is home to dozens of world-class wellness hubs and award-winning spas that are sure to soothe your soul.
The best place to melt away stress
If you’re in the mood for a full-service blow-dry bar, nail salon and facial studio rolled into one, Haven Spa is the place for you. The New York City spa also specializes in super-specific treatments like ‘Fire and Ice’ (a facial technique that uses masques and botanicals to cleanse, smooth and soften skin); ‘Hammam’ (a Middle Eastern-inspired exfoliating and moisturizing full body treatment) and ‘Geek Massage’ (an intense combination of therapeutic stretching and targeted deep-tissue work).
A calming refuge from NYC street life
Tucked away on the third floor of the iconic Carlyle Hotel, the Sisley-Paris Spa at this discreet Upper East Side enclave is just what you need to escape the buzz of Manhattan. The opulent and serene space is perfect for rejuvenating your mind and spirit, from the ‘Black Orchid’ facial (which helps repair your skin by reducing wrinkles and fine lines) to the ‘Champagne Aroma’ massage, in which a Champagne-infused serum hydrates, de-stresses and smooths your skin.
A curated selection of upscale restaurants and shopping awaits you in this chic, quaint neighborhood. When you’re ready to get your workout in, this hotel boasts an indoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center and a restaurant that serves Italian-Asian fusion cuisine.
