The Spa de la Mer opens today at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences and all fans of the La Mer $150-an-ounce facial cream are out-of-their minds excited.
Treatments at the spa include magical things like La Mer’s $350 90-minute “miracle broth facial” which ” empowers the five facets of renewal – moisture, regeneration, soothing, smoothing and radiance – helping bring skin back to its center.” We didn’t even know skin could be off-center! Wow! The spa also offers more familiar treatments like a 90-minute aromatherapy massage for $300 and a 30-minute Body Scrub for $100.
The spa is open to anyone willing to pay the crazy prices, but it must be an extra special treat for residents in the Baccarat (on West 53rd street, across from MoMa), like Leslie Alexander, owner of the Houston Rockets, who picked up a 4-bedroom pad in the building in June for $20.6 million.
