We all love NYC’s cutthroat energy (we yell at tourists for blocking us in the elevator line, after all), but that innate New Yorker stress and rage can take a toll on your physical well-being. To keep your mind and body in harmonious balance, treat yourself to a soothing massage or facial at one of these best spas in town.
The crown jewel of this luxe resort, located in the Grand Plaza Hotel, is its 6,500-square-foot spa. It’s a quiet retreat that features treatment rooms, a steam room and a relaxation lounge. This spot is known for its luxurious massages, such as the ‘Oxygen Awakening’ that includes an oxygen-boosting peel and a deep tissue massage with Theragun.
This Park Avenue-located day spa specializes in the use of essential oils to create a sense of serenity. It offers a wide variety of services, from traditional massages to detox therapies, and boasts an impressive roster of beauty treatments, too. Whether you’re looking to pamper yourself or your girlfriends, opt for the ‘Pamper for Two’ package that gives you both a facial and massage.
This FiDi spa has a secluded retreat that feels like a wooded hideaway, and its cozy rooms and flickering candles help to block out any stressful sounds from the nearby Financial District. Opt for a calming facial or soothing massage, and don’t skip out on the ‘Champagne Aroma’ massage that infuses your skin with a Champagne serum.
