New York City may be the city that never sleeps but there’s plenty of ways to unwind here. From world-class restaurants to acclaimed museums and stunning beaches, there are tons of calming retreats to recharge your battery.
One of the best spas in town for a true experience is The Spa by Equinox at Hudson Yards. The space is a sanctuary from the moment you walk in with a menu that’s always evolving and treatments ranging from traditional to technology-driven. If you want to extend your day there’s also onsite dining and an incredible boutique hotel that you can stay in.
Another one of the best spas in NYC for an experience is City Well in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The space is small but offers all of the amenities you need out of a spa day including soaking tubs, steam rooms and sauna valleys as well as a full-service salon. There are a few treatment options as well but even if you only book a massage you’ll feel like you’re at one of the best spas in town.
There’s little to compare to the opulent setting of The Peninsula’s spa in Midtown Manhattan. Located on two floors, the top floor is where you’ll find the gym and outdoor pool while the lower level is the spa with 12 treatment rooms for facials and massages and private relaxation zones. The space is a feast for the senses with cozy smells, ambient lighting and soothing music. Plus, the treatment experience is a heavenly combination of Asian, European and Ayurvedic philosophies that have you leaving the spa feeling totally restored.
