Some of the best spas in NYC offer incredible couples massage packages, which include everything from rubdowns to facials to chocolate and champagne.

The best couples massage rooms in NYC

Body by Brooklyn

You'd be lucky to get pampered in any of the five couples nooks at this spa, where extendable walls that normally divide individual treatment rooms open to reveal side-by-side beds. Candles and fresh flowers set the scene, but the real treat is booking the VIP Suite ($250 per couple). This private room also comes with free access to the spa's six wet and dry lounges. As part of the Couples Aromatherapy Massage, your technicians will work with you to create a custom blend of ailment-curing essential oils—like peppermint for headache relief or lavender to alleviate insomnia—that will be used during your hour-long, Swedish-style rubdowns ($318 per couple on weekdays, $338 per couple on weekends). To help you loosen up even more, the VIP Suite comes with complimentary champagne. Before you go, check Groupon for discounts—this spa has been known to offer deals.

Bruno Salon and Spa

Bruno Grillo made a name for himself through hairstyling, but the body treatments at his Bay Ridge spa deserve just as much attention. Spring for the Pamper Package for Two ($360) to sample two luxurious treatments: a 55-minute Swedish massage and deep pore-cleansing facial. The spa also runs regular promotions on Groupon, so you can usually find discounts on the already reasonable prices.

Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa

Most of us can't afford to jet off to Burgundy with our beau for a romantic getaway, but the luxe rooms inside the Plaza Hotel's spa is the next best thing. The dark-wood-paneled enclave allows you to channel a French vineyard with its wine-infused treatments. Couples should choose the Divine Love Ritual package ($650 per couple), which includes both a 50-minute customized massage and facial. The signature facial uses products derived from red wine—resveratrol and polyphenols—to help maintain skin’s elasticity and brighten the complexion. Hop onto the adjacent massage tables for 50-minute toning rubdowns designed to promote circulation, then wind down on the leather couches inside the wine lounge while sipping a glass of bordeaux from Caudalie’s family vineyard ($10-$15) and nibble on an assortment of fromage ($18-$25).

Cornelia Spa at the Surrey

Like The Surrey itself, the spa inside is known for its impeccable service and attention to detail. You’re greeted with a ginger-and-neroli–infused hand cloth and a heated herbal neck pillow before being whisked into one of the spacious treatment rooms. Reserve the Superior Couples Suite for the ultimate spa day: You’ll begin with customized 60- or 90-minute massages before retiring to the suite for a private soak and steam. A botanical tasting bar serves treats that complement the spa services, such as sorbets and cocktails.

Cynergy Spa

Prepare for a romantic escape with this spa’s ultimate couples package ($375): Begin with a relaxing dip in the Jacuzzi followed by a 55-minute body massage. Afterward, nibble on complimentary strawberries, chocolate fondue and champagne. But if you’re really feeling indulgent, register for additional services, like the hourlong De Islands' Brown Sugar Scrub ($135) that exfoliates skin all over for exceptional softness.

Faina European Day Spa

Want more treatment choices for you and your partner-in-crime? Check out Faina, where there are 15 options for the two of you to choose from. We suggest the Decadent Duet ($279), which includes a European manicure for her, a European pedicure and foot scrub for him and a 50-minute joint aromatherapy massage, complete with bubbly and decadent chocolate. But if you’re looking for the ultimate pampering sesh, the Champagne Extravaganza for Two ($229) includes a steam shower, a boozy body scrub and an aromatherapy body massage (30mins) followed by champagne and chocolate.

Juvenex Spa

Virtually no luxury is spared for this spa’s Enhanced Romantic Couples Getaway package ($555). Start by sweating it out in the solid jade igloo-style sauna or herbal steam room before taking a champagne-and-fresh-fruit-fueled bubble bath in the Celebrity Room tub. You'll then be led into one of the wet treatment rooms for invigorating full-body scrubs and back to the massage tables for blissful, hour-long Korean rubdowns, combining pressure and stretching applied through a sheet with essential-oil-lubricated long, soothing strokes directly on the skin.

The Couple's Spa

Formerly known as Supple Spa, this spa became so renowned for its treatments for pairs that it changed its name to The Couple’s Spa a few years ago. Opt for a side-by-side 60-minute aromatherapy massage ($108) with relaxing lavender oil and either the traditional Swedish technique or deep-tissue work. Want to go all out? Spring for the Couple’s Flower Bath package ($300), which starts with a 50-minute Swedish massage and sea salt scrub before you hop in a steaming, rose petal-strewn bath. The 90-minute pampering session ends with a neck and shoulder massage.

The Spa at Trump Soho

Keeping with the spa’s Turkish theme, the colossal couples space is adorned with cream and white mosaic tiles and boasts nine-foot-high ceilings, a marble infinity tub and an extra-large private shower with multiple jets that hit you at every angle. The Soul to Soul massage for two ($600) comes with lots of lavish touches, from plush robes to ice-soaked towels for your foreheads during your 30-minute soak in the rose-petal-strewn Jacuzzi. Afterward, you'll be led to the heated side-by-side massage tables for hour-long Swedish rubdowns that incorporate aromatherapy oils. Top the treatment off with a steamy rinse in the shower together and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Aw, so cute! I think my boyfriend and I could use a couples massage.... heading over to LookBooker.co to book one now! I can pick a spa anywhere in the city, so I can pick a place that'll work for both of us

This seems like a perfect location for a couple to get some rejoicing done with their bodies. While they get some healthy time, they will definitely get to know each other much better. There are so many offers for some couples that could prove are of value for their money. You should definitely read about the offers they have in store and ask them for the ones you like.

Tribeca Beauty Spa was really amazing when I booked an appointment there through www.lookbooker.co! My boyfriend and I had amazing massages in such a calming environment- I can't wait to do it again!

I agree with you Emily, these really aren't bad prices at all. My ten year anniversary is coming up this June, and I want to do something really special with my wife. I think that one of these couples massages will definitely be on the agenda. It's going to be hard to choose which one to go to though. There are so many options.

Wow, these really aren't bad prices for a full 90 minute couples massage. My husband and I have been planning on doing this for a couple of months now. I think that everyone should have the chance to splurge on this every once in a while. Thanks a lot for the reviews. 

Sui P

Caudalie is a dream. I book my appointments there online on LookBooker (www.lookbooker.co)- they're so popular sometimes it's hard to get them over the phone. There are also a bunch of other great places listed for couples massages

Going to a couple’s spa is a great way of showing your love to your spouse. Getting a wellness massage is very calming and relaxing. Additionally, it has a positive impact on your health as well. Your immune system gets boosted, your muscles are strengthened and your body as a whole enters a healthier state.

I would go to supple spa, 75 minutes for $139
