The harsh sun and sand of summer is tough on your hair, skin, and nails. The New York Palace has the perfect solution for your summer skin woes—a visit to The Palace Spa. Spa & Fitness Director Rita Rroku offered some of her favorite tips and services offered at our New York City luxury spa.
Q: What do you think are the top three treatments offered at The Palace Spa?
A: The Aromatic Hot Towel Massage combines vigorous massage with essential oils and hot compresses, leaving skin revitalized and super smooth. That’s a favorite. I also like the Natural Face Lift Facial, which uses Plant Cell Serum to stimulate new skin growth and slow cellular aging. Lastly, the Jet Lag Therapy is essential for any traveler. It begins with a hydrating facial and ends with a Lipo-Active Body Treatment. After that, you’ll definitely be on local time.
Q. What spa treatments do you recommend for a “girls getaway?”
A: I think the best “girls getaway” treatment would be trying our Spa Sampling Menu. With this, you get a little bit of everything, including a 25-minute Signature Facial, 25-minute Neck and Shoulder Massage, and an Express Polish Hands and Feet. These treatments will get all the girls refreshed and energized to take on the Big Apple.
3. What do you think is the ideal spa treatment for men staying at The Palace?
Our male guest can either choose to enjoy an Arnica Muscle Rejuvenation Massage right before they start their busy day, or they can bring closure to their day with our Palace Gentleman’s Facial along with a Nourishing Hair and Scalp Treatment. Both are exceptional ways to relax and feel pampered.
4. Does the spa offer any seasonal specials?
The Palace Spa offers a variety of treatments that can be enjoyed throughout the year, but in the summer, it is all about the skin! The sun is so tough on your skin, and we have few recommendations to get your visage in smooth shape.
The Summer at the Palace Special includes a 50-minute Palace Signature Facial with Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. After this facial, enhance with a Collagen Eye Treatment or a Face Tanning application, giving you that bronzy glow minus the sun damage. We also offer a 50-minute Chardonnay Sugar Scrub along with a Moroccan Oil Hair and Scalp Treatment to buff away dead skin and leave your whole body feeling revitalized.
5. If you were getting one treatment at The Palace spa today, what would it be?
What a hard question! If I had to choose, I’d say to combine a 25-minute Pick-Me-Up Facial and 25-minute Foot & Hand Reflexology with a 50-minute Spa Pedicure. You’ll feel completely made-over from head to toe and ready to explore New York City.
6. What is a “must have” summer treatment for guests?
The must have for the summer is our Lemon Verbena Body Polish Massage. Start with an exfoliating polish with the heavenly scent of lemon verbena and finish with a hydrating massage.
