The Review: Spa de La Mer

Leave it to two French legends to create one of the most luxurious boutique spas in New York. Two floors below the lobby of the Baccarat Hotel, the Spa de La Mer is a jewel in an already extravagant hotel. The intimate spa has four treatment rooms, a lap pool with day beds for relaxing post-treatment and a gym. Decorated by Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, the Italian marble floors, custom Baccarat lighting and vaulted ceilings bring to mind a chic seaside retreat.

Using exclusively La Mer products, the signature treatment, the Baccarat Facial, begins with a diamond powder exfoliation. It is followed by a relaxing facial massage using Baccarat’s Victory Stones, thought to combat stress and fatigue. The aesthetician then applies a mask using La Mer’s Miracle Broth, the key ingredient of all of its products, and gives a relaxing hand massage while it does its magic. Finishing the treatment with the Icy Star Cooling Technique, which seals the ingredients into your pores, and the famous Crème de La Mer, you emerge thoroughly pampered and hydrated. After relaxing by the pool, we recommend heading to The Bar on the fourth floor for a leisurely La Vie en Rose cocktail.
