Pure Luxury in a New York Minute

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see and experience the spectacular spa at the new Chatwal Hotel in New York City. A quiet, glamorous sanctuary located in the heart of bustling Time Square, the Chatwal Spa by Kashwere boasts three treatment rooms, private changing suites with steam showers, a fitness center, a relaxation lounge, a manicure and pedicure studio, an infinity saltwater lounge with hot spa, and a cold plunge pool and lap pool designed to simulate natural water currents.

The unique spa is designed to appeal to the five senses. Guests are invited to wrap themselves in a luxurious Kashwere robe before entering the serene lounge where they can put their feet up in style and sip a customized spa aperitif. Color, light, music, and aroma therapy are infused into each room. The sparkling white spa features gorgeous oversized chandeliers and clean, modern decor.

I was lucky enough to get a mini massage on a busy Friday afternoon. Walking into the tranquil space, I left the madness of Manhattan behind, and fully immersed myself in the sensational spa experience. From the sumptuous linens to the beautiful flowers to the soft glow of light, everything about the Chatwal is harmoniously beautiful and perfectly peaceful. The massage itself was incredibly rejuvenating, and suffice it to say, it was over way too soon.

Other standout treatments include the Skin Radiance Body Cocktail, a Dark Cocoa Pomegranate Body Souffle, Flower Peel Facial, and Luminous Sea Facial. For locals on the go, there's the quick and effective “In-a-New-York-Minute Facial.”

The Chatwal Spa by Kashwere is perfect for over-scheduled tourists and stressed out locals alike. I know that I'll be returning in a New York Minute.
