The Best Spa in Town

best spa in town

We New Yorkers are known for our cutthroat ways when it comes to the city, but that doesn’t mean we don’t know how to let go of a little stress (and sometimes a lot). There is one thing that soothes all our skepticism and tension: a good massage. Luckily, the Big Apple has plenty of spas primed to knead out your knots and make you feel like you’re in a whole other world.

Upstairs at SpaTerre you’ll find trio of mani/pedi thrones, an ocean-inspired theme and a unique Crystal Quartz table that feels like your skin is being massaged with a layer of warm sand during a session. Their signature therapies lean exotic: think the Thai Herbal Therapy that includes an herbal poultice and massage or the Javanese Royal Treatment, a redolent ritual for Indonesian brides that combines a heavenly body wrap with jasmine-frangipani oil, a turmeric spice scrub and a rose petal bath.

At the Queens location of this popular Japanese-American chain, you’ll get access to multiple saunas including a fall in Central Park and a skyline-themed room plus eight steam rooms, relaxation lounges and foot baths. You can add on a variety of treatments like an Oxygen Awakening facial and the Shibui Ritual that focuses on balance between your mind, body and spirit.

While the price tag on this luxe European-styled spa may seem hefty—like a year’s worth of MetroCards—it offers the five star service, excellent therapists and thoughtful treatments that will restore your balance. From a lymphatic drainage facial to cold therapy massages, this spa is a must for the serious self-care devotee.
