New York may be "The City That Never Sleeps," but no one said it couldn't relax. From massages to the latest in laser and facial-enhancement treatments, the spas listed below have thought of every way to soothe and pamper guests. In Midtown, for example, the world-renowned Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon & Spa offers upscale services befitting its prestigious Fifth Avenue address, while Nickel Spa in the Meatpacking District gears its services to men who may not be used to the spa experience. Read on for more details about some of our favorite places to unwind.
Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon & Spa
663 Fifth Ave., 212-546-0200, Midtown East, Manhattan
Two floors of bliss—the kind derived from manicures, pedicures, facials, makeup, massages and more—await at this storied Fifth Avenue day spa. Open since 1910, the Red Door has a proud tradition of service and sophistication but makes sure to stay on the cutting edge: facial cosmetic treatments with Botox, Restylane and Juvéderm are among its doctor-performed offerings.
Graceful Services, Inc.
1095 Second Ave., 2nd fl., 212-593-9904, Upper East Side, Manhattan
This no-frills eastside spa, open seven days a week, offers a wide variety of services. However, it's really made a name for itself as a wonderful place to get a rubdown, whether that’s a four-hand session (two therapists) or a thumb and neck massage—perfect for office workers who spend their days hunched over computers. Also on offer: house calls.
Metamorphosis Day Spa
127 E. 56th St., 5th fl., 212-751-6051, Midtown East, Manhattan
Why should girls have all the spa fun? While this Midtown day spa offers the latest in the kinds of trends that typically appeal to women—using everything from laser technology to oxygen infusion to plant stem cells from a rare Swiss apple—it also offers a menu of specialized treatments that are just for men. The "Metrosexual Makeover Package," for example, includes a facial, a hot stone massage, a scalp massage, and a paraffin hand treatment.
77 Eighth Ave., 212-242-3203, Meatpacking District, Manhattan
Nickel Spa aspires to provide "serious skin care for men." Guys who want to be pampered will find a place specially focused on them at this facility, where the management prides itself on a straightforward approach and treatments that help men rev up for and recover from sports, parties and travel. Services offered in the sleek, space-age spot include massages, facials, waxing, laser hair removal and much more—including, ahem, manicures.
Oasis Day Spa
1 Park Ave., 212-254-7722, Murray Hill, Manhattan
Husband-and-wife duo Bruce and Marti Schoenberg founded Oasis Day Spa in 1998. Named among New York's best by Vogue, Allure and New York magazine, this facility offers massages, facials, scrubs, waxing and a variety of spa packages, as well as wellness programs and options for large parties. Oasis Day Spa has two Manhattan locations (the second is in the Affinia Dumont Hotel), welcoming both women and men to step in and start relaxing. A Maximus Clark hair salon is also at the 1 Park Avenue post.
Russian & Turkish Baths
268 E. 10th St., 212-674-9250, East Village, Manhattan
On a tree-lined East Village street just off Tompkins Square Park is one of New York City's secret paradises: the steamy, serene setting of Russian & Turkish Baths. Truly a community destination—many of the guests have been going there for years with friends and family—the facility houses an authentic Russian sauna, the oven of which is filled with 20,000 pounds of heated rock. And the location offers much more; try a Dead Sea salt scrub or a black-mud treatment to complete the luxurious experience.
Sense, A Rosewood Spa at The Carlyle
35 E. 76th St., 212-744-1600, Upper East Side, Manhattan
This intimate, four-room refuge shares The Carlyle hotel's Art Deco aesthetic—and provides an immersive calm far beyond the conventional spa experience. One room features a Kohler DTV shower, which combines water, light, sound and steam to create a moment as cinematic as it is cleansing. Sense's trademark offering is the Sense Spa Journey, a soothing, three-hour session that exceeds its ambitious name: scrubbing, exfoliating, massaging and facial-ing participants into refreshed bliss.
315 W. 57th St., 12th fl., 212-245-8235, Midtown West, Manhattan
YeloSpa helps urbanites escape the pressures of modern life through a menu of spa and wellness treatments. Upon arriving, guests are surrounded by a peaceful color scheme inspired by the garments of Tibetan monks. They're invited to sip artisanal tea, refresh with a scented hot towel and enter a cocoon-like treatment room called the "YeloCab." Service options are plentiful, from reflexology to nap sessions in a zero-gravity "YeloChair" to Swedish massage to a "Mini Glow Facial."
