Forget your endlessly-flooding mailbox and get ready to relax during Spa Week, NYC’s favorite time to chill out and one of the best things to do in spring in the city. This is not just one of the biggest NYC events in April—hundreds of spas around the country offer soothing treatments for only $50! Since many of the city’s best spas partake in this weeklong pamperfest, weeding through all those luxurious services can be downright stressful. Don’t fret; we will always fill you in on the best Spa Week events happening every year, so you can focus on securing an appointment for a much-needed hot-stone massage before they’re all booked. Go on, you deserve a little “me” time.

When is Spa Week?

Spa Week runs from Monday April 17, 2017–Sunday April 23, 2017.

Where is Spa Week?

Spa Week takes place in cities across the U.S., and in NYC, premier spas such as Red Door Spa and Faina European Day Spa are just a few of the participating venues.

How do I book my Spa Week treatments?

You can start booking some of the most luxurious spa treatments in the city starting March 20, 2017. Book your appointments through the Spa Week website. Word to the wise: The best services get snatched up quickly, so schedule sooner rather than later.

Smooth Synergy Cosmedical Spa

If you want a super-smooth and flawless complexion, you’ve come to the right place. Book a Greek Goddess facial with Greek yogurt (60min), or an endermologie Fanny Facial (yes, that’s a facial for your butt) to lift and sculpt your derriere. The treatment starts off with an exfoliating scrub to smooth your backside, followed by small zaps of microcurrents to your bootie and upper-thighs. The result is similar to doing squats at the gym. There’s also laser hair removal session for bikini, underarms, upper lip or chin.
