The Best Places To Get Pampered In NYC
Escape from the bustling city into one of these soothing getaways.
The hot summer sun, the not-so-clean subways and taxis, and the multitudes of people jostling each other on the streets can make a person feel pretty wiped. That’s why The Big Apple has some of the most heavenly getaways tucked right inside the heart of Manhattan. Rejuvenate yourself with a deep-tissue massage, an exfoliating facial, or a casual manicure.
NYC is known for luxurious salons with state-of-the-art equipment, high-end products, and excellent masseuses. Facials, massages, manicures, and pedicures await you at these salons!
