Long Island may be a beach retreat for the masses, but those in the know are aware that it’s also one of the best places to pamper every inch of your body. Spa in Long Island hotels combine convenience and comfort with pleasurable pampering. Picture yourself getting loosened up with a massage before a day on the beach or getting beautified in mind, body and soul before a night out in Manhattan. Give into luxury and indulge in the best spas hotels on Long Island, bookable on Culture Trip.
Viana Hotel & Spa wants you to look and feel your very best when you visit its luxury spa on Long Island. This tranquil haven has more than just massages and manicures, so don’t let your indulgence stop at Reiki sessions and body treatments. Salon services like teeth whitening and waxing are enhanced with customized make-up services. Order an afternoon of the full lot, then head over to the bar at Marco Polo’s to show off the new you.
How much sublime serenity can Gurney’s Montauk Resort fit into their 30,000sqft (2,800sqm) Seawater Spa? Dedicated rooms for fitness classes, co-ed relaxation areas and an ocean-fed saltwater pool are just the start. You’ll find everything from chromotherapy to hydrotherapy treatments in this massive meditative space. Still feeling a little cramped? Let the resort’s private beach give you the room you need to feel completely relaxed from the sun-kissed tip of your head to your sandy toes.
Supreme wellness is a subway ride away from Manhattan at the Rockaway Hotel. Your reservation comes with complimentary fitness and yoga classes every day of the week. The hotel even offers virtual on-demand classes for the aspiring yogis who need to get their beauty rest. Getting pampered in a more inactive way isn’t a stretch – seaweed wraps, aloe facials, and CBD massages are within a few foot-shuffles from the comfort of your ocean view room.
You don’t need to travel to a retreat on Long Island for amazing spa services. Hotel Indigo in the East End will delight you with tailored massages and treatments at the hotel spa. Relax your way, perhaps doubling down on the pampering with add-on aromatherapy, foot scrubs and balms. A poolside room with direct access safeguards your serenity, keeping you footsteps from the second-most indulgent space in the hotel.
It doesn’t matter which suite you choose at the Inn and Spa at East Wind, you’ll be spending most of your time relaxing in the 10,000sqft (930sqm) spa. Separate men’s and women’s saunas give you a few minutes alone to long for your mate, only to be rejoined minutes later in a couple’s massage suite. Choose the form of relaxation that caters to your needs, whether that be massages or body treatments.
Soak up more than the sun on the North Shore’s only resort marina at Danfords Hotel. The fireplace suite overlooking Port Jefferson Harbor is a retreat in itself, but water-view balconies alone won’t relieve those knots between your shoulders. The on-site spa will, and luckily for you, they’ve got a set of hands that know just how to ride the pleasure-pain line so you leave feeling relieved yet relaxed. You’ll float so comfortably, you might feel more at home sleeping in a marina slip instead of your suite.
If instant gratification perks up your ears, then the Red Hots Spa will take care of everything between above and below them. In the Garden City Hotel, this boutique spa focuses on results, meaning you’ll leave looking better than ever. Transform yourself at this luxury spa on Long Island with a fresh wax, an airbrush tan and a deep massage that will make you walk with your spine straight and shoulders relaxed.
Let Long Island Marriott help you redefine a spa trip. A concierge-level king suite with a marble bathroom is all you need to indulge in peace and quiet. You’ll spend precious few waking hours there, though; the Garden City Barber Shop, Red Door Spa and SophistiCut Hair Salon will give you the look you want – but not to show off on the massage table. No, you’ll strut your style on the Eisenhower Park Golf Courses, where your definition of pampering equals putting for dough.
