In the moving and shaking Financial District we found a spa oasis gem, which is simply tucked away inside a grey high rise and a stone throw away from Wall Street. The spa at the Setai has only 10 rooms open to the public offering a variety of services, including massage, steam, facial and specialized treatments. As part of the Setai Wall Street Residential Development this posh spa is part of the package when you live in their luxury condos, which also boasts the prime restaurant SHO restaurant, club lounge and fitness center.

Russian Baths / Lower East Side

Since 1892, they have served New York as the place to experience an unexpected paradise. The Russian & Turkish Baths features five saunas and steam rooms, a cold plunge pool, a roof deck, and restaurant.  They also offer massage services and treatments.

The Russian & Turkish Baths offers several treatments including massages, salt and mud treatments, and the world-renowned platza. It’s a stress free zone designed to let you chill out and get some peace of mind. So just kick off your shoes and takeoff your clothes and they will give you a robe, some slippers and all the towels you want. You’ll be in for a new old world pleasure of being totally relaxed and spanking clean. Keep in mind, it’s co-ed but does have days and times gender specific.

The place is not fancy, but its character and charm make up for it. Celebrities such as J-LO, Russell Simons, Colin Farrell and many others all have frequented this spa hot spot; so don’t stare when asked to share a bucket of cold water as they pour it over their head in the Turkish room, which by the way has actual rocks heating up over night bringing this room to well over 175 degrees.
