Created by the 18th century entrepreneur and visionary Gideon Putnam, this historic Saratoga Springs resort houses the luxurious Roosevelt Baths & Spa—a transforming hydrotherapy spa that uses natural mineral water captured from the city’s famous underground springs to deliver its clients a signature brand of aquatic bliss. But the pampering doesn’t end there. Once toweled off, further treat yourself to a range of additional spa services, including massages, facials, scrubs, body wraps and salon styling. Check out their mouthwatering Muscadine Moonshine sea salt scrub and green gemstone clay body masque, and return home super soft, silky, and (hopefully) less stressed.
