The best spa is one that offers the ultimate experience. Whether that means a deluxe massage, an invigorating facial or some time for yourself in an exotic location, you’ll feel renewed and relaxed when you’re done. Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from in New York City.
Located in the iconic Plaza Hotel, this spa has everything you could want for an unforgettable day. From hot stone massages to a black orchid facial, this is the place for a truly luxurious experience. You can even add on a few extra services to make your experience complete like waxing or a makeup application.
A true oasis in the heart of New York, this spa has multiple pools and relaxation rooms. The treatments here are inspired by the bathing traditions of ancient Greece, Rome and the Ottomans. Try the signature “Muse” massage or go all out with a full body treatment that includes a mud wrap and massages.
The name says it all: this is a truly magical spot that’s perfect for getting away from it all. It’s the kind of spa you get your girls together for and then start planning annual trips to. Featuring an extensive list of treatments, Spa Castle also creates seasonal packages like the “Baby it’s Cold Outside” massage for winter.
This beautiful spot is a favorite of fashion editors and beauty insiders alike. Set in a gorgeous building with windows that frame sweeping views of the city skyline, Shibui is all about balance. The spa is made up of five different circuits — beauty, performance healing, temperature therapy, inner body and sleep — with multi-treatments that last up to four blissful hours.
