Aestheticians Alicja and Krystyna “escaped” from Soho’s Haven Day Spa to open their own spa in May 2006. Here, they offer a Murray Hill respite with the yellow and green walls of their seven treatment rooms warmed by flickering candlelight and pink satin cushions adding a bright splash of color to both the reception area and the four-seat mani-pedi section. Waxing services here are quick and effective; the popular European Classic facial folds in massage, extractions, and a customized mask with Yonka Paris products. Among the full-body treatments, of particular note is a 90-minute Acti-Sea Body Wrap which uses Baltic Sea mud to detoxify the skin then stimulates circulation via two exfoliations, and a rich slathering of body butter. Don’t be discouraged by the unremarkable appearance of the building. Escape is remarkable enough.


You can pick up Biotone, Yonka Paris, or Biodroga skin-care products in the front retail area.
