Seeking a quiet place to relax and soothe your tired feet? Some New York spas are cacophonous adventures – fun with a group, to be sure – but this offshoot of a popular Spanish brand originally from Seville, with its romantic, candlelit ambience, doubles as a haven for couples and individuals alike. Lovebirds flock to the two-hour bathing sessions in the hot, cold and warm saltwater pools and steam room. You can follow up the baths experience with massages ranging from 15 minutes to two hours. It won’t be long before you’re saying “serenity, now.”
The hip, lower Manhattan neighbourhood of Tribeca is known for its abundant shopping and dining options. Its gleaming multimillion-dollar converted warehouses and industrial spaces are home to many families, sports stars and celebrities, including Tribeca Film Festival founder Robert De Niro.
