If there's anything I've learned in my 5 years as a New Yorker, it's that the clock never stops and personal space is a luxury reserved for holidays abroad. We work hard, we play hard and— for those of whose vice is beauty— we spa hard. But ever since Cornelia closed their 5th Avenue spa, I've not been terribly inspired to splurge. Until now.
Meet Setai. A similarly discreet, luxuriously plush haven that boasts a highly-skilled team of therapists and estheticians (many of whom are former Cornelia employees), an inviting environment and state-of-the-art amenities.
Treatments to try*: Dead Sea Mud Mineral Enriched Hair and Scalp Revitalizer (60 mins, $165); Energy Reflexology (30 mins, $95); Honey & Citrus Renewal (60 mins, $185).
