SPA WELLNESS: The Spa at THE OUT NYC

A men's-only wellness wonderland

The Spa at THE OUT NYC

The Spa at THE OUT NYC, launched in November 2012, is giving male Manhattanites an opportunity to refresh, restore and rebalance without ever leaving the confines of their beloved—albeit frenetic—hometown. The spa features a 5,000-square-foot wellness center, complete with 15-foot waterfall, expansive atrium, hot tubs, cooling showers, lounges, cabanas, steam rooms, cedar saunas, a wellness deck, relaxation garden and private gym.

Spa services can be enjoyed in treatment rooms, as well as just about anywhere else in the facility (it isn’t unusual to see a gentleman enjoying a therapeutic massage out on the deck). Treatment packages include the DETOX (180 min./$275), which includes a dry-brush exfoliation, seaweed body wrap, customized massage with reflexology foot treatment, quick life facial and steam bath. The HAMMAM (120 min./$255), a Turkish bath treatment, takes place entirely in a steam room, and features a full-body exfoliation, full-body foam massage and deep-tissue massage. For guys focused on fitness, personal training and private yoga instruction is available.

Although hotel guests of THE OUT NYC enjoy 15% off all services, locals are encouraged to enjoy use of spa facilities with a Wellness Day Pass ($50) or Wellness Membership Program ($350 a year), which also includes discounts on services, products and gift certificates.
