- The Setai Spa
40 Broad St., nr. Exchange Pl., third fl.; 212-792-6193
Although it’s technically co-ed, the Setai’s location and general feel (dark Brazilian walnut and mahogany accents, an absence of floral-scented candles) make it distinctly male-friendly. There are gender-specific treatments like the Power Ready gentleman’s facial ($185) and grooming options (a back wax is $95), plus the option of personal training sessions ($150) in the 12,000-square-foot gym or just an hour or two in the Jacuzzi.
