I had to organize a group outing to a spa for a club I am involved with and stumbled upon Dorit Baxter. The spa was incredibly accomodating and went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was taken care of and pampered. The space itself is clean, well decorated and has a very relaxing vibe. The staff is also very knowledgable and everyone received great services for super reasonable prices. The facial is highly recommended!

A TRUE OUTERBODY EXPERIENCE

I went to Dorit Baxter for a Full Day Chill out. I was so pleasantly surprised and left feeling like I was born yesterday. I had no waiting time at all! From one service to the next like they were all waiting for me. My day started with a 2 hour intense workout at 6:00 am at my gym and then I gave myself this treat of the full day spa. My first treatment was a facial which left my skin so vibrant and then a great manicure and pedicure with a salt scrub. Lunch on the house, I ordered a grilled salmon and mash potatoes for lunch...yum. Lemon ice water and a cookie to wash it down..ok maybe 2 cookies:). The second half of my day included a one hour massage, detoxifying herbal body wrap and body salt scrub...what a dream. I left dizzy from feeling so good. It was a day full of mind, body and soul just for me. I am a mother of 2 small princesses and never really do anything like this. With a window of opportunity I took it and ran!

This spa is so gorgeous and the people are so nice. For a lower price than anywhere else in manhattan, you can get a relaxing massage. I got the best swedish massage of my life and I can't wait to go back.

Dorit was so great when I was there the first time that I ended up going back to try and get rid of this MASSIVE head ache i had!! He was wonderful! He spent a lot of time on my neck, head, and shoulders to help relieve my tension that was causing my near migraine! They are also very good at accommodating your schedule since they are open so late. AND they have tons of great services and awesome packages, very affordable! I am going back soon! Ill keep you posted on how my trip is =)

I have never had a more marvelous facial.. For weeks my skin glowed. Ever since I started using their products I've received more complements on how healthy and young I look. No one knew I had just completed chemotherapy. I also applaud their other services as well. You leave feeling like you've been on a vacation.

best facial for best value

I have been to dermatologists, spas, laser surgeons and nothing has ever been as helpful for my skin as the deep cleansing facial at Dorit Baxter. I have enjoyed every experience I have had at Dorit Baxter. After my facial and massage combo (for the incredible price of $128) I have been given nutrition and lifestyle tips customized to my lifestyle to try and help me maintain my new glowing skin. This place may not be the most extravagant spa. But if you are looking for quality service and quality products...Dorit Baxter is second to none.

I have had a favorite massuese for years but she didn't do hot stone massage so I tried it at this spa and WOW. I am a convert. Plus the spa was so lovely I am switching to it for my manicures as well. You'll love the view and the prices !

They were so professional from the entry to the wonderful massage that made me get lost and brought me back with just enough but wanting more I recommend this for anyone that just need a little pampering or anyone that life is dealing with a little harder than issues can be.

For 10 months living in the city I tried a few spas.Until the day I visited Dorit Baxter's spa, I didn't feel like going back to any of them. After visiting Dorit Baxter I know that this is my "home" for great facial and body massage.
