There’s nothing like a spa day to recuperate from the stress and noise of city life. These are your six best options when it comes to spa treatment in Brooklyn, whether you want a luxurious spa experience or just an old school Russian bath house.


Mermaid Spa NYC (Sea Gate) is considered one of the best Russian banyas in Brooklyn, and it’s worth the trek out to Sea Gate. You’ve got saunas, a steam room, an ice cold pool, and hot tub. On warmer days, there are lounge chairs in the outdoor seating area to sunbathe and relax. There’s a set fee for the whole day, with some extra charges for things like massage appointments. Food is available too.
