Great Jones Spa
29 Great Jones St., nr. Lafayette St.; 212-505-3185
Hydrotherapy is the name of the game at Great Jones Spa, with its three-story indoor waterfall and subterranean wet lounge providing an environment of calm relaxation that Mom can enjoy without even booking a treatment. For just $50, she can hang out in the pool, sauna, steam room, and the tranquil relaxing room, open until late should she wanted some extended time to herself. However, if she’s looking for pampering, facials use organic products from cult brands like Alkaitis and Naturopathica, while the body treatments coat, scrub, and wrap skin in natural ingredients like tropical nut oils, Moroccan mint tea, coffee, and wild-cherry-blossom rice.
