New York’s Best Spots for Some Serious Pampering
For those who want to indulge in a little pampering, New York is packed with endless options. With the hustle of the city and the fast-paced lives of its locals, the need to unwind is imperative, and Manhattan surely delivers. With a number of stand-out spas and hidden gems that relax, rejuvenate and renew. From spas from the world’s biggest and most renowned beauty brands, to intimate nail salons, and options for beauty on-the-go, Manhattan has no shortage of options for those that believe self-care is a necessity. Here are some of our favorite options around the city that leave you feeling like your best possible self.
L'appartement Caudalie Spa on Madison Avenue
Located on the Upper East Side, the Caudalie spa feels more like your dream New York apartment than a typical spa, as the space was inspired by co-founder Mathilde Thomas’ Parisian apartment. The world-class spa offers five-star treatments that have become the holy grail for the city’s stylish set, while beauty editors have waxed poetic about the spa’s anti-aging Premier Cru facial, which blends Caudalie’s most effective anti-aging ingredients and treats all signs of skin aging. The treatment also includes an innovative massage technique and a mask enriched with Resveratrol that leaves the skin feeling denser, smoother, and firmer. Fans swear that wrinkles and fine lines fade visibly and your complexion immediately looks younger and radiant after just one session.

Downtown on Mercer street, you’ll find Haven Spa, where renowned treatments doesn’t mean snooty service. The spa has become known as a serene escape where welcoming hospitality and comfort meet some of the city’s best massages. The spa prides itself on their comfy couches and stress-free environment. For the perfect post-airplane treatment, we recommend The Tourist Massage, specially designed for travelers who fly for several hours, walk miles in a day, stand prolonged hours in lines, carry heavy luggage and bags, and feel the effects of jet lag. Haven’s experienced staff will focus on the most affected parts of the body such as the feet, legs, lower back, shoulders, neck, and head. The session includes an energetic tuning massage, stretches, and hot / cold applications that help travelers sync up with their current time zone.
