Best of Boston

2006 Best Day Spa, North

Andrew Michaels

A world apart from its strip mall brethren, the Andrew Michaels spa—situated among the white-brick columns of the old Salem public library—earns devotees with such enticing body treatments as the Mandarin mint facial and coffee body wrap. A hushed, whispery atmosphere recalls the space’s former incarnation, while attentive estheticians bustle about to treat clients with A-list care and courtesy.
