Airbrush tan worshippers have long been addicted to the sunless glow served up at The Spa at Red Hots in Roslyn, where they can expect to get one of the best faux tans around. But earlier this week, the nine-year-old facility that has always offered manis, pedis, facials and body treatments on a small scale, held a grand reopening blast in its big (as in 5,500 square feet bigger) newly renovated space.
A strange time to renovate you say? “It’s crazy in a recession but we're busy and everyday we have to turn people away,” said spa co-owner Josephine Noto. While the well-stocked boutique of clothing, jewelry, gifts and beauty products remains on the ground floor, the spa portion of the biz has moved upstairs.
In a sort of Zen meets Mod wood, white and red-accented setting find eight treatment rooms, a pristine sauna, a sexy lounge area where refreshments will be served, men’s and women’s locker rooms and even a meditative yoga studio. “People get off the train and they’re wound up after work,” said co-owner Elaine Bezold. “Some of the therapists tell us it takes their clients 20-minutes to relax. This will help.” For couples and friends, there’s even a very private VIP suite where you can Spa-rty and get head- to- toe treatments. At the opening bash, one Loboutin-heeled woman exclaimed, “It’s like Canyon Ranch, but with wine.”
Come spring there will be an outdoor deck where clients can rejuvenate and relax as well. Chill seekers can call 516-484-8267 for an appointment. Red Hots is located at 1512 Old Northern Boulevard. To check out the spa's menu go to www.redhotsspa.com.
