Like the Carlyle Hotel that houses it, this decadent spa is a sanctuary of understated glamour. Before appointments at the sleek black, white, and gray space, all guests change into plush robes and slippers and are ushered into a lounge adorned with photographs by Kenro Izu. A domelike stairway lined with platinum and flanked by antique chandeliers leads down to the four treatment rooms. The five aestheticians on staff all have a minimum of six years of experience under their belts, many hailing from other prestigious spas like the Peninsula. The services match the opulent décor: Body treatments incorporate Red Flower products and natural ingredients like Moroccan tea and rosemary, lavender, and marjoram essential extracts, followed by a rinse in a luxurious rain shower. The signature three-hour Spa Journey involves an exfoliating ginger grass scrub, a Shiatsu-inspired massage, and a custom facial using the French line Sicily (or Hommage products for men), plus a moisture-rich paraffin treatment for both the hands and feet.Bridal Package
Indulge in lavish treatments like the signature Ritual Facial ($500) and a 90-minute hot-stone massage ($290).
