The Best Spas in Boston
From luxe lounges to organic product lines, these five local spas have everything you need for a little TLC.
For the Bachelorette
G2O Spa + Salon
33 Exeter St., Boston, 617-262-2220, g2ospasalon.com.
With plenty of space to relax in between services (think: lavender aromatherapy treatments and exfoliating polishes), G2O’s tricked-out Exeter Street digs are ideal for group outings. Round up your besties for a celebratory pampering session in the Relaxation Room before noshing on small bites in the Fireside Lounge.
Must-Try: “Bali Revitalizing Ritual” herbal-steam treatment, $65 per person for two to eight people.
For the Green Enthusiast
Balans Organic Spa
216 Newbury St., Boston, 617-424-1500, bostonbalans.com.
This light, bright relaxation haven, opened in late 2015, relies exclusively on products from Maria Åkerberg, an all-natural Swedish skin-care line derived from essential oils and plant extracts. Choose from the stacked roster of organic body treatments—bolstered by vitamin-rich algae and other ingredients—or book a session in the private float suite, where you’ll de-stress in 10 inches of cleansing salt water.
Must-Try: Hydrating papaya enzyme treatment, $200.
For the Fitness Buff
28 Arlington St., Boston, 617-532-7000; 2 Battery Wharf, Boston, 617-603-3100; exhalespa.com.
After a grueling workout, we’d say you’re entitled to a little R & R. Cross both items off your to-do list at Exhale, a hybrid fitness studio and spa where you can burn calories in a barre, yoga, or cardio class before recharging with a muscle-soothing massage and a sojourn in the hammam, a warm, stone-tiled Turkish bath.
Must-Try: Glow body scrub, $180.
For the Staycationer
776 Boylston St., Boston, 617-535-8820, mandarinoriental.com/boston.
Looking for a good way to use some of that hard-earned PTO? Splurge on a long weekend at the Mandarin Oriental, where aestheticians at the plush hotel’s 16,000-square-foot spa—home to a quartz-crystal steam room and vitality pool—will spoil you with warm-stone massages, purifying facials, and herbal scrubs.
Must-Try: Personalized Body Wrap, a customized treatment after consultation with a therapist, starting at $220.
For the Snow Bunny
284 Newbury St., Boston, 617-236-1444, skinspanewyork.com.
From drying, cold mountain winds to UV-reflecting snow, hitting the slopes can do a number on your face. Let the miracle workers at the Back Bay’s Skin Spa help whip yours back into shape with serum- and vitamin-infused treatments—all of which begin with a personalized skin analysis and consultation—designed to restore your visage to its natural glory.
Must-Try: “OxyTrio” facial for dehydrated skin, $100.
