Profile

This decadent, wine-centric spa opened in October 2008 on the fourth floor of the Plaza hotel, the first Caudalie spa to be in an urban setting rather than a European vineyard. The original Caudalie spa was founded in 1995 by spouses Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas, nestled in the family’s Bordeaux vineyard. The décor attempts to approximate a vineyard vibe, with changing rooms splashed in rosé pink and shadowy, seductive photographs depicting a single grape suspended on the small of a back or the nape of a neck. Treatments are similarly grape-themed, from a Crushed Cabernet Scrub of grape seeds, honey, and brown sugar to the Wine Maker’s Massage, in which a smooth, wooden stick usually used for crushing grapes is rolled over tension points. Facials use Caudalie’s signature product line, which incorporates grape extracts, orange flower, rosemary oil, and flaxseed to cleanse, tone, and moisturize skin. Both locker rooms include steam rooms, and couples can opt for barrel baths infused with red-vine and crushed-grape extracts in the VIP room. Post-treatment, guests are ushered into the 800-square-foot wine lounge for a complimentary glass of wine. Modern silver couches and scarlet, orange, and green accent tables are arranged alongside an imposing glass-enclosed wine closet stocked with French, Spanish, and Italian varietals from various Caudalie vineyards; on-site sommelier Cliff Rames sources new wines each month.
