French-Moroccan owner Fabien Azoulay opened Iguazu in 2007, after defecting from his former venture, Flatiron’s Broadway Spa. Set where the West Village meets Soho—in the same space that once housed iconic nineties spa D.Esse—the unisex-friendly spot attracts downtown hotel guests and lots of relaxation-deprived regulars from the neighboring offices of Saatchi & Saatchi, MTV, and Comedy Central. Customers are typically greeted by name and escorted down a swirling path of polished river stones and walnut flooring, then up a slate-stepped staircase to a small balcony lounge or the comfortable blue-hued treatment rooms. Thorough facials—which include steam, extraction, cranio-sacral massage, and various masks—employ fragrant Naturopathica products, a motorized complexion buffer, and an ingenious blackhead vacuum; estheticians do not leave your side for one second, massaging hands and arms while the pumpkin peel goes to work and de-kinking feet during the algae mask. Targeted massages cover a range of styles: the Pachamama mixes five different modalities, while other options dig deep with hot stones or smooth bamboo rods. Also on offer are waxing, mani-pedis, tropically themed body scrubs, and a single salon chair for cuts and color.
