Caudalie Vinothérapie® Spa, Plaza Hotel | New York, New York
Find your own personal paradise in New York’s urban jungle at the Caudalie Vinothérapie® Spa. What this spa lacks in size, it makes up for in opulent services. The treatments, “vinotherapy,” revolve around the grape and its seeds, oil, skin and stems because of their abilities to illuminate, energize and purify the skin. The polyphenols in grapes combat free radicals, acting as anti-aging powerhouse that boosts circulation, firms, heals damage and protects your skin’s collagen and elastin. Treatments include cabernet scrubs, merlot wraps, grape massages and a red wine bath. After your treatment, head to the French Paradox Wine Room and participate in a wine tasting hosted by an expert sommelier.
