It’s around this time of year that most people find themselves dreaming about spontaneous get-aways and everyday luxuries. Allow us to introduce you to the exact reason of why you should pull out the plug and travel across The Atlantic Ocean for a couple of days. Welcome to the Peninsula in New York – a world-famous spa and hotel in the heart of Manhattan.
Destination: New York. The city that never sleeps. Here, in the heart of Manhattan and located on the most exclusive street, Fifth Avenue, you’ll find The Peninsula. The luxury hotel is owned by a hotel chain based in Hong Kong and they’re famous for combining the impeccable hotel service from Hong Kong with the eternal pulse of New York. No wonder this place is a magnet for people with a genuine interest in luxury and ultimate wellness experiences.
The Peninsula offers sublime rooms and a restaurant with very good reviews, but today we’ll take a closer look at the spa area.
Five stars from Forbe’s
Forbe’s Magazine has granted the hotel five stars, which indicates a luxury experience in a class of its own. The spa is a so-called ‘roof-too spa’ placed on top of the building and this gives room for a splendid view of the city. Leave the hectic everyday life in the lobby and indulge in a world of wellness and well-being on the top.
The ultimate spa experience
Name a treatment and the spa’s got it! You’ll find a vast selection of spa- and wellness offers and there’s even an ‘A la carte menu’ for customers to pick and choose as they wish. Men are also catered for with the popular spa-menu only available for them, which reveals quite a lot about the growing spa-culture in New York
If you’re going all in on luxury you shouldn’t miss out on ”The definitive Peninsula experience”, which is a special 4-hour spa-programme that takes you through different treatments – only for you to end up in a Paradise of wellness! The price for the package is $1.045 (5.726 DKK)
Private suite and etiquette
If you wish to indulge in the pleasures of wellness in more private settings, The Peninsula Spa offer the so-called ‘Private Suites’ for two people at the time. Enjoy your very own area of the spa accompanied by champagne and a basket of fruit, which is delivered upon request.
The hot baths and steam facilities are divided into two sections; one for men and one for women, as the use of swim wear is optional! Of course this is not the case when choosing a Private Spa Suite, but guests should be aware of this before entering the spa with a partner.
Simplicity and senses
Alwayas remember to bring water and a snack when going to the spa to sustain a healthy blood sugar. If you get hungry and need more than just a snack it’s possible to endure in the hotel’s very own food concept ‘Naturally Peninsula’. The concept is based on light meals, which are prepared to stimulate the five senses. Great food made from the finest ingredients – and perfect before of after a visit to the spa.
The spa has also developed their very own line of skincare products under the name ‘ESPA’. The products are developed with consideration on both efficiency and well-being and the prices are quite reasonable as well. Try out the lovely products in the spa – or to buy them separately in the reception afterwards, if you wish to prolong the spa-experience at home.
