With its stunning three-story indoor waterfall and sleek, subterranean wet lounge, Great Jones Spa made a splash with the fashion crowd when it opened in fall 2004. Since then, the feng shui–designed spot has added an organic-juice bar next door and augmented its already lengthy treatment menu with offerings like purifying “skin food” facials using the cult organic product line, Alkaitis. In the decadent, five-step Red Flower Hamam treatment—offered at only a handful of city spas—clients are first cleansed with Moroccan mint tea, then scrubbed with coffee, olive stones, and lemon, painted with clay, and finally massaged and hydrated with tangerine-fig butter. The coed spa (a favorite of grooming icons like Brooke Shields) features nearly a dozen massage and skin-care rooms, but the real star here is the water cure on the lower level. Free for spa visitors with tabs over $100 ($50 for those not purchasing other treatments), the luxe setup boasts a plant-filled atrium adjacent to a hot tub, cold plunge, river-rock sauna, and chakra-light steam room.Bridal
With water cures and hot-stone saunas, this serene spa is a best bet for
relaxation. In the VIP room, brides and grooms can enjoy dual massages and a
private Jacuzzi, as well as the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Glow body scrub ($150).
