In a town filled with spas and massages, it’s sometimes hard to determine the best in town. But if you’re looking for a place to get all your beauty, wellness and relaxation needs fulfilled in one space, the QC NY at Governor’s Island is where it’s at. Located right on the waterfront, the luxurious retreat is the ultimate day spa experience with a wide range of saunas, steam rooms and relaxation lounges plus Vichy showers and baths.
For those who want to go all out, the 5,000-square-foot spa offers a full suite of treatments including facials and massages as well as acupuncture, cupping, Reiki, yoga, belly casting and more. And if you’re looking to step up your pampering game, the spa has also recently introduced an array of cutting-edge med-spa services like fillers and injectables.
This Queens spa is known for promoting balance and is the perfect spot to escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City. This family-run and operated facility is a must for anyone who’s seeking to recharge their battery. This large-scale location is home to eight saunas that vary from color therapy to cold stimulation, a spa lounge and more.
Try the ‘Oxygen Awakening’ facial, which combines an oxygen-boosting peel and a massage for bright and refreshed skin or opt for their popular ‘Omakase Ritual’ that gives you access to their opulent relaxation lounge, traditional Japanese soaking tub and five treatment rooms. And if you’re in the mood for a little something extra, go ahead and indulge in their signature ‘Southern Scrub and Sip’ treatment, which comes complete with a bourbon-and-brown sugar scrub and glass of limited-batch Garrison Brothers Single Barrel Cask Strength bourbon.
