  • Always Tan Skin and Body
    For more than 30 years, Always Tan Skin + Body's skilled staff of technicians has been devising its ever-changing menu of advanced spa treatments to restore stressed clients. The spa gets its name from a lineup of UV-centric tanning beds that gently bronze bodies in 12- to 20-minute sessions, but the staff of aestheticians and massage therapists run a full-service spa. Luxuriously heated massage tables cradle clients' cloth-draped bodies as certified therapists summon knots from the deepest layers of the muscular system with a variety of massage styles, including shiatsu and craniosacral. Though they specialize in therapeutic massages, the dexterous therapists easily adjust their kneads to accommodate clients' injuries, soreness, or migratory pancreases. To revive vivid or dull complexions, the spa administers microdermabrasions and custom facials backed by skincare lines such as DermaQuest, Image, and Le Mieux. Between treatments, clients can take a breather in the spa's quiet lounge, lined with black leather chairs and vibrant, lily-pad-themed paintings, while indulging in hot herbal teas and filtered mineral spring water harvested from the room's personal Niagara Falls–size waterfall.

  • Spa J'Adore
    Within a 17th-floor penthouse, Spa J'Adore's wide windows allow rays of sunlight to illuminate Buddha photos, exposed-brick walls, and brilliant orchids. Their décor, a combination of urban chic and zen sensibilities, reflects the massage practice's dual focus on Western and Eastern traditions. To that end, massage therapists are equally adept at deep-tissue and Swedish treatments as modalities from Thailand and Japan. The staff also paints on tans with brushes instead of sprays during body-bronzing sessions, which create a smoother, more natural appearance. After their treatments, clients can lounge on the spa's balcony, sipping herbal tea from heavy clay cups and relaying semaphore messages to hikers on distant mountains.
