- $55 for a Spahara Mani-Pedi ($105 Value)
During the 60-minute Spahara pedicure, feet soak in a therapeutic whirlpool before a technician shapes nails, trims cuticles, and exfoliates the skin. A cool mask restores moisture, and a foot and leg massage eases tension. The 45-minute Spahara manicure also refines nails and cuticles and soothes digits that have been frozen in a jazz-hands position with a relaxing massage. Both fingernails and toenails leave with a choice of OPI or Zoya polish.
The beauty experts at Spahara keep detailed records of clients' skin and body needs in order to treat them royally every time. After consulting the records, the crew performs individually tailored beauty treatments, such as facials, mani-pedis, and body wraps, as well as massages.
The pamperers draw inspiration for their services from the ancient Egyptians—one of the first cultures to use spas as havens of healing. In keeping with this philosophy of healing, the spa has helped raise money for breast-cancer research.
In addition to inspiring Spahara's services, Egyptian culture inspires the spa's decor. For example, the pedicure area impresses with fluted columns and an Egyptian-style mural that speaks of age-old palaces. It was handcrafted by co-owner Hanna Botros. In the salon, gold-framed trapezoid mirrors reflect patrons' new 'dos and remind them that obtuse angles are not to be trusted.
Guests can extend their stay with a visit to the on-site Cafe Arome or by stretching their relaxed muscles in one of Spahara's newly added yoga classes.
