Nalai apparently means serenity. And the team behind Spa Nalai at the Park Hyatt in New York took that to heart. The spa is sleek, airy, and decorated in a pleasing palette of natural shades of stone and cream. Here, even the locker rooms are out of the ordinary, having great views of the city skyline – Spa Nalai is a world away from the bustle of the streets. And that’s just how you feel at the very start of your visit. Can you imagine how relaxed you’ll feel after you actually enjoy a treatment?
Although, guests at the Park Hyatt won’t actually feel much in the way of stress that they need to unwind from – the hotel is as luxe as you’d expect. But no one would turn down a treatment here. And it’s open to the public so it’s decadence for all. The menu of treats on offer here are rightly dubbed “experiences”. Categorised by face, body and massage, there’s plenty to choose from, including warm stone massages, body wraps that have been tailored to your personal requirements, and polishing, rejuvenating “Fire + Ice Facials” that will leave you with a serious glow.
In addition to the regularly available experiences, Spa Nalai also offers packages, like the Atelier for Two. Romantic and indulgent, it covers everything from a luxurious soak in a private, pleasingly oversized marble tub to tandem massages and Champagne. Throw in the aforementioned sensational views and you’ve got the makings of a great memory – that’s if you’re not relaxed into blissful slumber too early on.
