There is always so much to do and see in New York City that it can seem as if you’re always going, going, going on your vacation. You and your partner are having a great time exploring Times Square and Central Park, or hitting all the best restaurants on your list, and you’re getting worn out. Vacations are supposed to be relaxing as well as fun and interesting, right?
Instead of spending another day seeing the sights, waiting in line with crowds of people, take some time out to reconnect with your partner at one of New York City’s exceptional spas. You’ll both be given that four-star treatment, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed.
We’ve compiled a list of the 7 best spas for couples in the heart of New York City:

Aire also offers an argan oil treatment, a therapeutic bath experience with Himalayan salt, and olive essence oil.

The Couples Spa
320 E. 65th St., Upper East Side
This spa, as its name suggests, caters to couples looking for a joint relaxation experience. Previous guests point to little extras, such as massage chairs, tea, and chocolates, as something that really took their visits up a notch.
Go for a standard couple’s massage package, or add in the aromatherapy package for calming lavender oils. If you’re feeling up for a soak, choose the flower bath package. For the full experience, pick the Enhanced Couple’s Flower Bath package, where you’ll receive massages, full body scrubs, and a soak in the flower bath.
Cornelia Spa at the Surrey
The Surrey, 20 E. 76th St., Upper East Side
For the ultimate private couple’s spa experience, you can’t miss the Cornelia. If you’re short on time, enjoy a 60- or 90-minute couple’s massage in a private suite. Or, if you want to luxuriate a little longer, book the Superior Couple’s Suite, which offers a private soak and steam, champagne toast, and private botanical tasting along with your massage.
Enhance your experience by adding aromatherapy, scalp treatment, lymphatic drainage, or bespoke wellness socks to any massage. Or, leave looking and feeling your best by stopping in for a manicure/pedicure before you head out.
5 E. 57th St., 5th Floor, Midtown East
Choose from a variety of services at YeloSpa, including reiki, massage, and body waxing. Add on dry brushing, cupping, or even a deep tissue forearm massage to take care of those muscles that get tired from typing all day.
