Vir tù Spa

Okay, it’s a little weird that this spa is on the backside of a medical center. But once you throw on a robe, kick back in the relaxation lounge, and wait for your anti-aging facial or hot stone massage, you won’t give two you-know-whats where you are. All you’ll feel is bliss. And – ready for this? – they’ll even arrange for free child care at the attached fitness facility while you relax. Read More »

Nurture Spa

Remember natural light, city dwellers? Trade the concrete jungle for New Hope’s recently renovated Nurture Spa.

2013 Best Day Spa

David J. Witchell

The salon level is bustling chaos, which makes walking down to the subterranean spa called the Grotto a transformative experience from the start. The therapeutic massages (one even incorporates warm bamboo stalks) are muscle-melting bliss, but its the details that earn Witchell top billing: plush robes and slippers for padding around the cave-like space, headphones to wear during your massage to tune out, well, everything, and a steam room where you can linger long after your treatments (before you have to climb back up to the real world).
