Lush Spa  

The year is off to an auspicious start for the city’s pampered class. January 13 marks the U.S. debut of the Lush spa (783 Lexington Ave., at 61st St.; 212-207-8151), from the U.K.-bred purveyor of cheeky handmade bath products. The space channels the Oxfordshire countryside with jars of wildflowers in the consultation area, whimsical treatments such as the nautical-themed Good Hour massage ($180) and post-service rum-spiked tea. The launch follows two other new oases: Elizabeth Arden’s Union Square Red Door Spa (200 Park Ave. S., nr. 17th St.; 212-388-0222) is a 10,000-square-foot Xanadu specializing in express services like a fifteen-minute collagen eye refresher ($25). And nestled in Tribeca’s Aqua studio, an outpost of the Hamptons La Don spa (78 Franklin St., nr. Church St.; 212-966-6784) offers treatments from aesthetician to the stars Thuyen Nguyen, including the Instant-Lift ($205 for 50 minutes)a facial that uses the ancient methodof cupping to tighten wrinkles.
