While the front section of the spa seems like just another bright, cheery New York nail salon, the real draw is the stellar facials offered in the well-appointed back rooms. Mixing Asian and European approaches and natural ingredients with cutting-edge techniques, the treatments do not disappoint. We went for the Acqua Glow Facial and left simply, well…glowing!

WHY WE LIKE IT
The facials. Period.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
While slightly more reasonably priced than other spas in the city, Acqua is a bit overpriced for the overall experience offered, as the spa lacks some of the luxury extras such as relaxation suites, changing rooms, saunas, steam rooms, and the like.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you can't pick just one treatment, go for one of the packages. Offering three services, they're more affordable than a single treatment at some other places.
