There’s something to be said for exclusivity and superior products. Both can be found at this hallowed haven within the wonderful The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. Open to non-hotel guests, as well, La Prairie boasts a relaxation lounge, fitness center, men's and women's steam rooms and six treatment rooms. Its traditional décor, with plush fabrics, fine furnishings and elegant accessories, creates a peaceful ambiance. We had the pleasure of experiencing La Prairie’s Platinum Rare Facial (90 minutes; $420), which rehydrates and revitalizes and includes Cellular Serum Platinum Rare and cellular eye cream. While one anti-aging expert cleanses, mists, exfoliates, extracts, masks and rehydrates the face, another works on your hands and feet. Though this treatment is not a body massage, by the time the practitioners get to the scalp, décolleté, hands and feet…it feels just as good!
