When’s the last time you truly treated yourself? (And we’re not just talking about that hour after the kids have gone to bed.) If the answer is far too long ago, it’s time to plan a luxurious spa day in the Hudson Valley. Lucky for you, The Opus Spa is here to help.
Open since the end of summer 2022, The Opus Spa is the latest addition to The Opus, Westchester, an upscale hotel in the heart of White Plains. (Take a peek inside the hotel here.) While the hotel, formerly a Ritz Carlton, already boasts a reputation for luxurious overnights in the Hudson Valley (did we mention it’s also home to elegant Portuguese-leaning eatery Kanopi?), the addition of the spa means guests and locals alike can enjoy a full-service experience in a space that feels like it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
At The Opus Spa, guests can tailor their visits to include anything among the wide variety of services and treatments on the destination’s menu. Upon taking the elevator up to the ninth floor of the hotel, visitors enter a haven of relaxation and serenity. An elegant locker room stocked with amenities like a haircare station, robes, and slippers awaits at the start, while a hydration station with water and teas ensures everyone remains hydrated. Prior to and after treatments, guests can lounge in the relaxation room, where dimmed lights and cozy chairs add to the meditative environment. Down the hall, a sauna invites visitors to loosen their muscles and detoxify.
As far as treatments go, The Opus Spa has something for every sort of individual. Signature massages range from the Rest and Renew, which incorporates traditional Swedish techniques, to deep muscle melts and Himalayan stone and CBD recovery massages. There are also specialized massages for pro athletes and mothers-to-be who need curated treatment plans. For those in the mood for a facial, the spa has that covered, too. The Le Opus Grand Classique facial is a treat for pretty much everyone, while the Organic Opulence Facial is a must for anyone who prefers natural ingredients. Even the guys will find something to love, thanks to The Gentleman’s Code facial, which is recommended for golfers or anyone who spends lots of time outside.
The Opus Spa is all about the full-body experience, and its signature body treatments and healing and wellness programs support this. Guests can choose from an exfoliating sugar glow ritual, a detoxifying aloe and seaweed wrap, or even a relaxing mineral bath from the list of treatments or opt for cupping therapy or reiki healing among the wellness options. For those who want the full kit and caboodle, The Opus Journeys walk visitors through multi-tiered spa experiences that might include anything from a visit to the salt chamber to an aromatic scrub or an invigorating facial.
If a quick trip to the spa is called for, a manicure or pedicure is just the thing for a micro-unwind session. To extend the glam getaway, women’s and men’s haircuts and styling are available, along with waxing and enhancements like express peels and scalp treatments and massages.
P.S. Thinking about holiday gifting? The Opus Spa offers three tiers of membership, which can provide access to The Opus fitness facilities and indoor rooftop pool, as well as discounted rates on spa treatments, unlimited use of spa facilities, and complimentary valet parking. Gift certificates for individual treatments can be purchased, too.
The spa operates Wednesday through Monday during the week, making it perfect for weekday excursions and weekend relaxation sessions alike. For more info, visit the spa’s website.
