Life in Manhattan certainly moves quickly by anyone’s standards. However, everyone needs an occasional break from the pace and, as you’d expect, NYC is home to some of the most luxurious, comfortable and trend-setting spas and salons in the world. You’ll find the most current and highest quality services available and can go home ahead of your local style curve!

New York City’s spas and salons incorporate luxurious designs and materials to enhance every experience as they cater to some of the most demanding clientele in the world and competition is very intense. Various elements including exotic salts, oils, sand, quartz and cozy linens can be combined with expert spa techniques for an experience to exhilarate the senses.

The city’s salons regularly service celebrity types as well as high level executives and prominent residents. Be assured that you’ll be treated like a star as well and pampered in ways you would not have imagined.

Many of the city’s spas and salons find creative ways to incorporate various worldly cultures and environments to enhance your experience and the perception of escaping into other worlds. Spa Castle Premier 57 is more like a Manhattan East meets West Spa Oasis. Culturally infused with traditional and modern offerings, Premier 57 focuses on providing a world-class wellness facility, with luxury spa treatments as just one of the many experience enhancements. Indulge in the European hyper-customized Beauty Spa, then unwind by soaking in the Roman-inspired Water Lounge and be exhilarated with the German-style hydrotherapy Bade Pool.

With three floors to enjoy, Premier 57 is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. Focused on heat therapy and hydrotherapy, Premier 57 specializes in providing opulent water-based facilities, along with a collection of uniquely themed sauna rooms. First class spa and body treatments along with savory snacks and beverages only enhance the Premier Spa Castle Premier 57 experience. Where else would you find year-round, open-air, rooftop hydrotherapy pools? Considering New York’s hectic pace, many spas offer short but sweet variations of their services to accommodate those in need of a break without the time to allow for a full service visit. Massages of shorter lengths and blowouts are examples of services that can now be squeezed into an overly busy day.

Spa and salon services are not just for women. Most salons, including Salon Ziba and Marc Joseph Salon, offer waxing, facials and various skin treatments for men and women. Facials have become very popular among men and you’ll regularly see men receiving manicures and pedicures.
