Review: La Prairie at The Ritz-Carlton Spa New York

Hotel Facade 1After a hectic week taking in the shows during fashion week, the team from La Prairie treated us to a lovely afternoon at their beautiful spa, located in The Ritz Carlton. The Manhattan spa features six treatment rooms, steam rooms, along with every relaxation and beauty-related need from travel therapy and facials to energetic body treatments.


As soon as Nikki and I walked into the space, we felt a sense of zen and relaxation. The spa attendees greeted us, took our heavy coats and scarves and ushered us into the beautiful white marbled change rooms. The windows are all double paned to ensure the sanctuary is free from any outside disturbances.

Nikki experienced the La Prairie Facial while I enjoyed the Caviar Massage. You don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to book one of their amazing services. The spa offers a wide variety of high end body treatments along with manicures, pedicures and various facials.

Whether your skin is thirsty, congested, sluggish or sensitive, La Prairie’s expert esthetician will discus your  your skincare needs with you and then analyze and perform an exquisite facial to achieve the highest results.


This is the ultimate luxurious massage enhanced with the benefits of Skin Caviar to nourish and energize. They use La Prairie’s beautiful products including the Cellular Refining Lotion, Extrait of Skin Caviar Firming Complex, Skin Caviar Luxe Soufflé Body Cream and finish with the Cellular Energizing Body Spray.

Before we departed New York, we stopped by La Prairie’s head offices on 5th Avenue to visit the team. They showed us the latest products from the collection including the Celluar Swiss Ice Crystal Emulsion (which I use every day!) and the new Anti Aging Rapid Response Booster, available this April at Holt Renfrew.

Thank you to the team at La Prairie for a fantastic experience.To book an appointment at La Prairie at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New York (50 Central Park South) call  212. 521. 6135 or email
