I am so lucky that I live in a city with Bliss. What a great spa day. My company gave me a day of facial, massage, pedicure and manicure at Bliss. I visited the location on 49th Street & Lexington, although they have a few other locations in the city. There's one even in London! I was impressed from the minute I walked in. Great customer service, clean and comfortable lockers and changing spaces. The lounge area where you wait before your services is wonderful. I could have sat there all day! They offer delicious cheeses, olives, cucumbers and little cookies and brownies along with fresh tea or water to nibble while you wait.
You won't wait long though! I had a spectacular massage (I've been carrying a ton of tension in my shoulders and know it's gone! Until I go back to work that is! :) Then I had a wonderful facial with Emmie...she took the time to fully explain everything she was doing, gave me suggestions on what I could do differently and even recommended some products to add to my routine (All of which were conveniently waiting for me at the counter when I checked out, although there was no pressure to buy and I decided not to.) The manicure and pedicure was nice, but nothing special or unique, although the technician (Monique) was nice and did a good job, I think next time I'd save my money and spend it on a longer massage or another service.
Bliss has a huge menu of spa options and they will tailor it to fit your needs. There prices are high though, and I was only able to go because I was using gift certificates. It is a great 'special event' place or if you just want to do something a little extra special for yourself. As soon as I can afford it, I will definitely be back.
