Oasis Day Spa recently renovated its Manhattan location and revealed an underground oasis of luxurious pampering. The One Park Avenue space is a level below the entrance to the building, and a truly Zen experience awaits you. Best of all, the spa offers the same quality treatments that have made it so popular for the last sixteen years.
So why change now? Husband and wife owners, Bruce and Marti Schoenberg, wanted to update the spa to reflect the evolution of New York City. “There is a new mood and energy in the city – a new mayor, new technologies,” Bruce tells us, and continues, “Oasis feels that energy and is in the groove. We wanted to take our great name brand, renew it and remind our guests why we’ve continued to remain so popular in New York for the past sixteen years.”
The new décor is modern and soothing with varying shades of grey throughout, including carpeting in the relaxation and treatment areas adding to the cozy feel. There are nineteen treatment rooms and a large party space available. Oasis Day Spa also sells a variety of excellent spa brands including, Eminence Organics, MD Solar Science, Farmhouse Fresh and Cosmedix. Despite its face-lift, Oasis remains true to its clientele by continuing to provide its signature treatments.
These signature treatments are also available at the Oasis Westchester location for those of you north of the city. Our writer, Sandra Hirsch visited the Westchester spa and gave her impressions.
“I was warmly greeted by Diana my esthetician as she escorted me to the treatment room for my Oasis Express Facial. As I got comfortable on the spa bed in the dimly lit room, soft music played in the background. Diana thoroughly examined my face and explained in detail what my skin needed and what applications she would be using on me. The overall methods were similar to previous facials with steaming, deep cleansing and a scrub followed by an application of essential moisturizers, The difference was in Diana’s touch as her hands magically fluttered and thoroughly massaged my face, scalp, décolleté and shoulder areas. Her movements were fluid-like dancing over my skin and relaxing my whole body. After the delightful thirty minute treatment, I rested on the lovely Oasis roof lounge, prior to changing back into reality.”
Whether you have your treatment in Manhattan or Westchester, it is sure to be a slice of heaven above or below ground.
