New York is known for so many things, it can be hard to choose what to do during your time here. However, staying in Tribeca helps to narrow it down. In addition to some of the world’s best restaurants, New York spas are a big part of the neighborhood’s appeal. You can find the creme-de-la-creme of spa services right around the corner from Duane Street!
Visit one of these tranquil refuges to decompress with massages and treatments:
Euphoria Spa is a small neighborhood retreat with master estheticians and results-oriented skincare treatments like microderm, hydraderm and skin rejuvenation. Exposed brick walls, lofted ceilings, and a private yoga studio create an unpretentious second-floor space that feels right at home. While the facials are lauded as some of the city’s best (try the Fresh Air Facial, a 10-step process for stressed-out skin), you can also branch out with luxury services like full eyelash extensions or a decadent Chardonnay Massage. There’s even a small sauna available for a bit of extra relaxation before or after an appointment.
18 Harrison St
Just a few doors away from Euphoria, Tribeca Beauty Spa is a larger destination with sauna, seven treatment rooms, and a complete range of services. “Nadia’s Signature Facial” is a 90-minute firming and tightening treatment that features twenty minutes of facial massage—using European, pressure point, and lymphatic drainage techniques—as well as Japanese mushroom peels and organic collagen masks. Other favorites include a quick, relatively painless waxing technique for Brazilians and basic bikinis, as well as body treatments using Nadia’s homemade scrubs (warm mineral salt, soft brown sugar, or a soothing blend of milk, honey, and almond).
8 Harrison St
The services at Shibui are certainly costly, but if ever there was a splurge-worthy spot, this is it. The experience here starts with the underground pool located in a well-heated, den-like space to dip in pre-treatment. The luxury-zen designed facilities gleam; arrive early for complimentary use of their soaking tub, steam room and sauna. All the products are plant-based and, whenever possible, organic. Treatments here skew Japanese; the Drunken Lotus massage, Shibui’s signature service, utilizes sake-soaked towels to relieve sore muscles and essential oils to hydrate the skin. Enjoy complimentary tea, dried fruit and scented water in the relaxation lounge before departing.
377 Greenwich St
The Equinox Spa in Tribeca is an upscale leg of the revered fitness and wellness brand. The eclectic and long selection of services here cater to all people in need of all sorts of relaxation. For something different, try the 24-Carat Gold Signature Facial, which uses an actual 24-carat mask for maximum skin hydration. Those looking to work out some kinks should consider The Aromatherapy Massage to tickle multiple senses.
