Luxurious comfort is the overarching theme at this exclusive, female-only spa situated along a nondescript stretch of road in SoHo. From the soothing, all-natural color palette (blond wood wall paneling and bamboo vases) to the tiled eucalyptus steam room and the meditative, egg-shaped massage space, this sanctuary is serene and oh-so-pampering. To look as good as you feel, head to the floor above for its Beauty Loft (for all your mani and makeup needs) and Fitness Studio (with private and semi-private workout sessions available year round).

Yourself; a girlfriend
WHY WE LIKE IT
The women-only aspect is inviting, especially for those who get shy around the opposite gender, and it means that the staff understands issues specific to women's bodies. The menu for moms is varied; while most spas usually have only one prenatal massage treatment, this place has many to choose from. And the letter home afterwards, thanking us for our appointment? A thoughtful, personal touch.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The massage was heavenly, but we felt a little uncomfortable with the way they say your name after every sentence.
GOOD TO KNOW
The aromatherapy steam room is complimentary to all guests, whether they're coming for the spa or the fitness center.
