Even if it weren’t totally cliché, we wouldn’t describe The Peninsula Spa New York as heavenly. Instead of pure white walls and gilded accents, the style of this 12-room spa, located on the top three floors of the historic New York hotel, is earthy and organic in feel, with decor that is both contemporary and Asian-influenced. Redesigned in 2009 by Alexandra Champalimaud (who has designed over 60 hotels in nine countries), The Peninsula Spa combines natural materials, a mixture of rich and neutral tones and luxe textures to create a lavish, Zen-like feel. Each area of the spa, from the minimalist greeting area to the plush locker rooms, features an element of wood: hardwood floors line the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa, acacia wood chairs sit in the Asian Tea Lounge and teak-tree sculptures fill the reception room. The design is kept from becoming too austere (this is a luxury spa, after all) with a dose of glittering gold, white and brown mosaic tiles that line the walls in the steam room and sauna.
