Best of Boston

2008 Best Day Spa, West


Call it spadenfreude: The hedonistic pampering you receive here is made that much more delicious by knowing people all around you are putting their bodies through the wringer. Opened in 2004, this spa sits on the second floor of fitness megaclub Bosse Sports, and yet a world away. Exotic touches like orchids and carved masks are a nod to Soma’s exclusive Wisdom of Africa products, used in everything from body wraps to decadent manicures. Wrap yourself in one of the microterry-lined silk robes, inhale the scent of baobab oil and Kalahari melon, and remember: no pain, all gain.
