Destination Manhattan helps bodies flush out toxins and soak up moisture with its hydro-body therapy treatment. After gliding into a comfortable robe, clients enjoy a 15-minute steam-room session, opening the skin’s pores like the valve on a fire hose. An accompanying 20-minute soak in the light-therapy hydro tub soothes flummoxed fascia with a triumvirate of aromatherapy oils, bath bombs, and hydro massage, whereas a scurry through the Rain Head Shower exfoliates skin with a salt scrub. Finally, the refresher facial caresses cheeks with a cavalcade of cleansing, exfoliation, steam, mask, and moisturizing treatments. The detoxification treatment also features a choice of customized aromatherapy scents, promising to increase circulation in a more stress-free manner than dodging airborne dust particles.
Destination Spa Salon Academy
Hot desert air churns in from the distant dusty hills, but it’s given no quarter at Destination Academy Cosmetology School. Here, turquoise walls and porthole-shaped mirrors evoke the feel of a vessel bobbing in the water of a cool oasis. Though the spa-salon’s windows reveal sweeping views of the mountains, its private treatment rooms shield clients from the desert sun with candlelight, tubs big enough for two, and a choice of seven kinds of aromatherapy including french lavender and new handbag. On the second floor, expert stylists—some of whom may be alumni of Destination Academy, the salon’s nationally accredited training program—use Moroccanoil and Pureology to shape cuts to individual faces and style preferences.
