Best of Boston

1999 Best Day Spa, Suburban


One of Boston’s newest and most talked-about spas, Grettacole boasts a staff that is petite, blonde, and warm—and an impressive services-to-square-foot ratio. Need a pedicure, facial massage, haircut, and makeup application? With such one-stop shopping, you’ll be there long enough for the friendly staff to order your lunch from a neighboring cafe. Tired of aestheticians who spend half the session out of the room? While your masque is drying, they’ll massage your feet. The product range is impressive, but there’s no hard sell. Another big plus: There are no downtown parking travails.
