Best of New York Beauty 2003

Best Newcomer Spa

  • Stone Spa

    125 Fourth Avenue, 212-254-3045

    There’s nothing pretentious about the new Stone Spa. In fact, the Maya mud treatment ($85) is do-it-yourself. Go in alone, or with a friend, to the mud room, slather yourself with the nourishing earth, then enter the herbal steam and bake. For those who prefer full-service, wraps include an antioxidant pomegranate body mask ($155) and a cocoa-bean treatment for cellulite ($155). And, of course, there’s the signature stone massage ($125). In the summer, you can have treatments in the beautiful garden out back.
