The Emerson Spa (Mt. Tremper, NY)

The Emerson Spa recently re-opened as part of a $6 million renovation of Emerson Resort and Spa (Mt. Tremper, NY). The full gut renovation of the 6,193-square-foot spa, 10-treatment-room spa included more than 1,000 square feet of additional space, a Quiet Room, an expanded Nail Salon, and a new outdoor Spa Deck. It also involved a new spa menu, which now offers a selection of anti-aging and energizing facials from Elemis, as well as new nailcare offerings from SpaRitual, hot and cold stone treatments, customized therapies, and in-house blended aromatherapy oils. Signature Treatments at Emerson Spa include:

  • Emerson Signature Integrative Massage ($225, 2 hours), which promises pure heaven on earth, incorporates a variety of specialized modalities for a one-of-a-kind massage after an in-room consultation. It concludes with a ritual to calm mind, body, and spirit.
  • Emerson Signature Stone Massage ($190, 90 minutes) lets guests feel at home in the Catskills with a contrast therapy that soothes the nervous system and strengthens the immune system with cold and warm stones.
  • Emerson Signature Facial ($175, 75 minutes) is an ideal therapy for all skin types thanks to active botanicals, cleansing, toning, exfoliation, extractions, and a customized mask. It also features cold stone marma-point facial massage and a foot and scalp massage.
  • Emerson Signature Manicure ($55, 60 minutes) and Pedicure ($70, 60 minutes) pampers hands and feet. Hands get a moisturizing oil soak followed by a relaxing warm stone massage up to the forearms and a splash of polish. Feet are treated to a warm Himalayan Salt Soak and Himalayan Stone massage to relieve tension in lower leg muscles and aching feet.

“We’re very excited to bring a unique line of treatments and therapies to the Catskills,” says co-spa director Liz Zabel. “We looked for ways to combine the earth’s elements and individualized attention to create an environment that wasn’t just a treatment but is a complete, harmonious experience.”
