Cornelia Spa at The Surrey
20 East 76th Street, New York, NY 10021
Located inside The Surrey, one of the Upper East Side’s most luxe boutique hotels, the Cornelia Spa is the place to go if you’re looking for an exotic, one-of-a-kind treatment. The menu of services is filled with unique offerings, however the spa’s master therapists also like to work with their clients to make sure that the treatments chosen are custom tailored to suit their customers' tastes, skin types, problem areas and more.
The waiting rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated, and stocked with nibbles, water and tea. The gauzy curtains add an extra essence of calm; one could easily sneak in a great meditation session while they wait for their scheduled treatment.
Cornelia also offers “Considered Moments," which are quick, lunchtime or late-day treatments that can be squeezed in between meetings or school pick-up times. If you're in the midst of a hectic day, but could really use a quick pick-me-up, this is perfect. Services take about 30 minutes and include a Mini Facial, a Mini Back Purifier, a Honey Skin Smoother and more.
We Love: The Champagne & Pearl Sugar Glow Body Polish, which is just about as luxurious sounding as a body treatment can get. Mother of Pear powder, which removes the build up of dead skin cells, is gently applied, leaving your skin polished and soft. This is followed by a warm Champagne Shimmer Oil, which heavily hydrates as well as adds a natural sparkle to your now-pampered derma. Lastly, an age-defying gold serum, which is mixed with the Mother of Pearl powder, is applied to your face. You’ll emerge from this treatment absolutely aglow, from head to toe.
