Opened by the former owner of the beloved Eden Day Spa in Chinatown, Supple Spa came to be after its founder detected a lack of—and high demand for—day spas for couples. Located steps from Sixth Avenue, the spa's cheerless entrance serves as a vivid contrast to what's inside: Past the hushed and dimly lit reception area, behind paper screens, potted orchids, and live topiaries, is a lineup of private rooms, each with its own romantic theme. The Paris Room, decorated to resemble a Parisian terrace, is set up for side-by-side massages; the Daydream Room offers the same, with a sauna and a pair of step machines; and the Sunset Room is a small lounge area with double mani/pedi massaging chairs and a karaoke machine. Then there's the Tokyo Room, an Asiatic recess where clients can take in the Royal Bath Massage—a 50-minute Swedish or deep tissue massage, followed by a full body salt scrub, and a soak in a wooden tub filled with hot water, rose petals, and lemons. Other services include waxing, collagen treatments, and deep pore facials using Dermalogica products. Not solely for those with an eye on romance, Supple hosts parties for up to ten people, serving wine with lunch or dinner.
Indoor surfing, spinning lovefests, a luxurious pig-placenta facial, and more.
