If you are looking for an out-of-body experience, Spa Dew in Fort Lee is the place to be (or not be, if you catch my drift). The spa has zen decor, filled with the soothing aroma of lavender. Their specialty is the Korean massage technique, which is a combination of Swedish, Shiatsu, and Thai massages, which leaves the body fully relaxed. Unwind here with a couple’s massage that you won’t forget!

This contemporary Korean style bathhouse is like taking a trip to a fancy destination spa. It’s open from 9 AM to 12 AM, and for a single fee, you can spend as long as you would like, soaking up the zen vibes. Relax on the rooftop garden with spectacular views of NYC, lounge around at the infinity pool, walk the shallow water foot massage path, or indulge in the outdoor baths, like the silk one that infuses hot spring microbubbles directly into the water to nourish and improve skin elasticity. Oh, and don’t forget the treatments like the salt and oil scrub, enzyme facial, and Balinese massage. For an all-day spa experience this Valentine’s Day, this is the place to go.
