The Best Spa in Town
The best way to melt away the stress of everyday life is with a good massage or facial. New York City is home to a handful of high-end and budget spas that can help you get your glow on without breaking the bank.
Aire Ancient Baths
Located in TriBeCa, the candlelit Aire Ancient Baths feature a variety of thermal baths inspired by Roman, Greek and Ottoman traditions. Guests can choose a bath with hot, cold or a combination of temperatures for their own custom experience.
Founded by esthetician Danuta Mieloch, Rescue Spa has made it their mission to make clients feel their best through restoration and rejuvenation. They offer services from luxe beauty brands like Biologique Recherche, Vintner’s Daughter and Christophe Robin as well as advanced tech treatments like radiofrequency, laser and light therapy.
ORA Acupuncture and Healing Sanctuary
Entrepreneur Kimberly Ross’s new boutique acupuncture spa ORA takes ancient Chinese tradition and makes it more convenient for the modern New Yorker. The sleek, meditative space pays homage to its roots with details such as hand-painted ceramics, red lanterns in each treatment room and Chinoiserie-inspired motifs.
The Spa at Carlyle Hotel
Known for its old-world glamour, the Carlyle Hotel is also home to one of the city’s most serene spots, its Sisley-Paris Spa. This 6,500-square-foot oasis offers everything from a black-orchid facial to a hot-stone massage, and you can even add waxing or a makeup service.
