The Village Beauty Lounge's chic and relaxing space invites clients to indulge in organic therapies that enhance their looks and uplift their spirits. A climb up the back-lit staircase is the first sign that things are taking a turn for the luxurious; once inside, guests are greeted by earth-toned walls and softly-lit hanging lamps. The decor sets the mood for such uniquely pampering treatments as ice cream pedicures, citrus hot cream manicures, and curiously peanut butter-free jelly foot baths. Inside equally sleek private treatment rooms, therapists administer hot stone and aromatherapy massages. Skincare specialists, meanwhile, render complexions radiant with hydrating and vitamin C anti-aging facials. As visitors relax, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs cancel out the big city stimuli teeming on the other side of the spa's doors.

The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.

Broad rays of sunlight stream through floor-to-ceiling windows in Latika Spa, casting light on manicurists and softly illuminating pedicurists stationed in front of three reclining pedicure chairs, each outfitted with pillowy leather cushions. Above the pedicure chairs, potted plants dangle leafily from exposed pipes, as toes enjoy polish and paraffin treatments. Down the hallway, aestheticians administer Ayurvedic facial treatments and a skilled massage therapist heals ailing muscles and minds with eight different styles of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, and reflexology.
