The Best Spa in Town

You’ll find plenty of standard luxury spa treatments here (the signature black orchid facial, for instance) but “it’s all about the wellness elements” at this Upper East Side hideaway, says designer Courtney Kiersznowski, who goes a few times a year for services like a hip-pain-alleviating deep-tissue massage or a yin-and-yang balancing energy session. “You can really let your mind and body wander while you’re here,” she adds, recommending the calming aromatherapy experience that ends with an acupuncture session.

Tucked inside the Mandarin Oriental hotel, this zen spot takes its name from the Lenape people who once lived in New York City, and fuses Asian, European and Ayurvedic philosophies to pamper guests on both the physical and mental levels. Book a package for a comprehensive journey—the four-hour Escape from the City, for example, includes an exfoliating body scrub, resurfacing face mask and an invigorating eucalyptus foot bath.

This bright, modern spa is a true one-stop shop: blowout bar, nail salon, facial studio and massage parlor all in one. “The staff is incredible,” says aesthetician and skincare expert Amy Schultz, who recommends the “Fire and Ice” facial technique or the hydrating hammam treatment, which comes with an herbal steam tent and a relaxing Vichy shower.

The Park Avenue location is known for its invigorating spa packages, which include a face scrub, full-body massage and an Theragun treatment (an innovative clinical treatment that helps firm and lift the skin). But this colorful spa has so much more to offer—including a sauna valley, pools and a series of treatment rooms.
