Oasis Day Spa - Oasis at 1 Park Avenue

Top 10 Spas in New York

The Oasis Day Spa in New York City is well known for its intimately personal service

Oasis Day Spa – Oasis at 1 Park Avenue
1 Park Ave. (32nd & 33rd Streets)

What sets Oasis on Park apart from other NYC day spas is that it’s a hands-on mom and pop business, run by Marti and Bruce Schoenberg. The flagship Park Avenue location is reached via a stone staircase that once led to a subway station. Here, they lowered the ceilings (they are still unusually high) and transformed the subterranean subway platform into a sprawling spa with nineteen treatment rooms painted in soft pumpkin shades. The comfortable lounge is decorated with half-moon shaped, leather-like sofas and cushy-soft pillows all in greige colors. There’s a party space, two couple’s rooms and even a resident hair and nail salon. Passion for performance — they regularly host training sessions — has retained the same staff members for a dozen years; dedication to affordability keeps clients returning.
