The Wine Bath Experience
The Spa: Aire Ancient Baths

The Price: $450-$550

When you think of the New York City spa scene, ancient baths probably aren't the first thing to enter your mind. But one of the best spa treatments in the city is offered at just this type of place. While the baths themselves are a sight to behold, it's The Wine Bath Experience that's really special. The bath offers a unique (and unforgettable) opportunity to submerge yourself in the antioxidant properties of Spanish Tempranillo grapes. Beyond the Wine Bath, you'll also get to experience the Ancient Thermal Bath circuit, which includes baths at different temperatures (hot, cold, warm, ice), the jets bath, the Laconicum (steam room with aromatherapy) and the Flotarium (saltwater bath), as well as the relaxation area where you rest on warm marble. Guaranteed you've never tried anything like it.

Triple Crown Facial
The Spa: Joanna Vargas

The Price: $550 with Joanna Vargas, $250 with a Senior Esthetician, $300 with a Master Esthetician

If you tune in to any of the season's awards shows, not to mention the pre- and post-show coverage, you've probably heard of Joanna Vargas or, more specifically, her Triple Crown Facial. Favored by celebrity clients before a big shoot or appearances on the red carpet, the facial is a 60-minute treatment that uses a mild electric current to drain puffiness, tone muscle and tighten skin. Paired with microdermabrasion and oxygen-infused therapy, you can expect a magical facial experience that offers immediate results for youthful-looking skin.

The Spa: Lush Spa

The Price: $230

Allow us to introduce you to Lush's signature treatment. This 80-minute massage is a completely personalized experience that starts in what looks like an English Kitchen, despite being nestled in the heart of one of the world's largest cities. In the kitchen, guests are asked to make a few simple choices from a blackboard and shelf full of colorful bottles, which, in turn, leads to a one-of-a-kind experience that feels as though it stretches for a full 24 hours, even though it's only 80 minutes long.
