Friday Finds: InSPArational Bliss
April 13, 2012
Have you read “Swimming in luxury at the Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street Spa” or this past week’s “Tempting Tuesday: ‘Tis the season for Premarital Pampering”, which features NY Bliss Soho, in Diary of The Passport? It’s no surprise our most recent posts currently feature spa recommendations.
Pampering spa treatments have been on my mind following holiday travel aches and the start of a rejuvenating (and open-toe-shoe-filled) spring season. Not to mention Spa Week is right around the corner, beginning on April 16th in the United States. Here are some spa finds and favorites for your reading pleasure and spa inspiration.
Hotel Chatter recommends The Peninsula Spa by ESPA at The Peninsula New York, not only for its 3-level spa, but for its fitness center and amazing floor-to-ceiling view up Fifth Avenue and through Central Park. [Hotel Chatter]
Filled with luxury, Racked NY’s article “Eight of the Most Expensive Spa Treatments in Manhattan” includes Completely Bare, Bliss Soho, Susan Ciminelli Day Spa & Salon and The Salon and Spa at Saks Fifth Avenue, all favorites featured in The Purple Passport’s New York Guide. [Racked NY]
If you indulge in the Spa at the Mandarin Oriental, you can extend the experience to the dining table at Asiate. According to Hotel Chatter, “the music playing in Asiate was part of the hotel’s own branded spa music CD set, titled Oriental Wisdom.” [Hotel Chatter]
“$$$$: The Spendiest Spas in LA” by Racked LA includes Four Seasons Hotel and Spa, Hotel Bel-Air Spa by La Prairie, The Spa at Beverly Wilshire, The Peninsula Spa and Spa Montage Beverly Hills, all LA spa picks in The Purple Passport. [Racked LA]
