Ladies, make room at the manicure station. Four- and Five-Star spas are seeing more and more men coming in for some primo pampering. To accommodate them, 45 percent more spas have begun offering man-specific services and packages, according to the International SPA Association. Check out these chap-centric spots:
The Kahala Spa in Honolulu. This Four-Star spa is decked out with a Gentlemen’s suite that has big, comfy chairs and tropical views. Guys can sit back and enjoy a 45-minute hot shave or an Athletic Rebound signature treatment, which combines firm pressure, reflexology, aromatherapy and a series of muscle stretches to help keep athletic types feeling fine.
The Elysian Spa in Chicago. When this Four-Star spa opened in 2009, it built a Men’s Atelier. Inside the custom clubhouse, fellas can get traditional shaves, facials, manicures, pedicures, or a cut and wax. The atelier is also a popular spot for a groom and his groomsmen to receive rubdowns and order in their favorite grub before the ceremony.
The Spa at Wynn and
The Spa at Encore in Las Vegas. Broad shoulders will get worked out with the Four Hands massage (yep, that’s one treatment with two therapists). But it’s Vegas, so why not double down? Lads can clean up with a haircut and hot-lather shave at Wynn’s barbershop. For even more relaxation, men should go for the Thai oil treatment, (guys get stretched out and deeply massaged) or the Gentlemen’s Pedicure (feet are soaked, exfoliated, moisturized and massaged).
