The Empire State’s home to some pretty stunning jewels and one of the shining additions to the boutique luxury hotel scene is Baccarat. Chris and I stayed at Baccarat Hotel New York with another couple in the Fall. After experiencing autumn in New York at the Baccarat, there’s one thing I know for sure – this will not be the last time I hang my hat at this exquisite spot!
Baccarat’s charming, sexy, and fun making it a great choice for an ultra posh girl’s trips or an uber romantic getaway. The delicate and elegant details feel warm and cozy like a luxe bed and breakfast that’s served for decades – blended with modern touches fresh from the pages of the best in hospitality. Chic and fun, bright and sultry, it’s really a see-to-believe space.
The Heart of the City
Choosing Baccarat as a home base for a memorable couple’s getaway was an easy call. We were able to try the incredible spa de La Mer for the ultimate in relaxation, yet were in close proximity to everything in the city!
There’s no doubt you’ll get some miles in walking if you choose not to take advantage of a car service, but still I was thrilled to enjoy some “just me” moments in the sleek fitness center. Equipped with Technogym machinery there’s everything that’s needed for an intense workout. In addition to the fitness center’s finds you can partake in yoga, pilates, and private training sessions in a separate studio.
Spa de La Mer Favorites
I adore La Mer so to have this line be the foundation of the lush spa services thrilled me! The Baccarat is home to the first ever U.S. La Mer spa, which to me, is the ultimate amenity!
My top pick for facials at spa de La Mer is the La Mer Miracle Broth™️ Facial. Anyone who’s familiar with La Mer has heard about their Miracle Broth™️. Here it’s implemented into a series of rituals as part of your facial and leaves your skin absolutely glowing!
For a full body experience my choice is the La Mer Body Treatment where your skin is polished to perfection with fine diamond dust and massaged to enhance your body’s ability to heal. This ultimate and luxurious treatment includes none other than La Mer products that leave a silky finish to your newly flawless skin.
If Winter weather has taken a toll on your skin like it does to mine – the Cashmere Quench Wrap is the way to go. Shea Butter softens and hydrates you from head to toe. Extra attention is given to your scalp with an uber-tingly coconut oil massage.
Sourcing Wellness in New York City
As one may imagine, the wellness opportunities in what’s said to be a cultural capital of the world are endless. The beauty of the melting pot of New York City is that from block to block you’ll find a whole new array of experiences where you can source items and activities for your health. Skilled herbalists, SoulCycle, sessions on mindfulness, hip-hop yoga are all just a walk away and many healthy hot spots like Equinox offer drop-in classes for travelers on the go.
Invigorating for your soul, the personalized experience that comes from staying at a luxury boutique hotel with your closest friends and making lasting memories is therapeutic! The unparalleled amenities make it easy to indulge in a bit of everything you love while sampling from new and exciting moments found only in the city.
