New Spa Escape in Manhattan

Having experienced many spas for the

TRAVEL THERAPY

syndicated video series I'm always searching for something unique and special to share when it comes to healthy living and relaxing at a spa, and special is exactly what I found at the new Cornelia Spa at

The Surrey

in New York City.

I've always really liked The Surrey, with its luxury boutique vibe, so when I heard the property was unveiling a new spa I was excited to try the Reparative Caviar and Oxygen Quench facial.

It sounded like an ideal fit since I'd just gotten off a plane from a long international flight and I was right. This two-part facial took all the redness and tightness out of my skin, leaving it silky smooth and hydrated. I felt and looked like a new person, no more jetlag! I also love how you finish this treatment with a caviar amuse bouche and a flute of prosecco.

I always say it's the little things that make a spa experience truly memorable and that's why I enjoyed the Cornelia Spa so much. From the moment you enter this intimate petite spa your pampering begins when you're given a warm ginger and neroli infused hand cloth to refresh and a heated herbal neck pillow to help make you cozy and relaxed while you wait.

If you want a little snack the Mini Botanical Tasting Bar has delicious treats and Cornelia teas. Don't miss trying the lavender glazed cookies and the almonds sprinkled with sea salts.

Once you're taken into your treatment room every guest takes part in Cornelia's Signature Honey Ritual where it's explained that honey is an ancient healing remedy and you're given a small spoonful of gourmet, organic honey to help ease your mind and senses.

I also love how when you're ready to begin instead of hanging your robe on a hook there's an armoire for your things -- so you really feel at home and in my spa suite. I also had my own bathroom and shower area.

Insider tip: Try and book your treatment around five o'clock because that's when they do a complimentary champagne pour -- an ideal way to toast your blissful experience.

When you're done you're also given a small spa themed gift as a "thank you" and you can continue up to the Surrey's fantastic private roof garden, reserved exclusively for hotel and spa guests. Be sure to try one of the signature cocktails. One of my favorites is a fun twist on a mojito called a Thaijito with rum, thai chili, lime juice, fresh lemongrass and mint.

So cheers to The Surrey's new Cornelia Spa, where all the thoughtful little touches makes this spa experience one of my new favorites in New York City.

The Hoodie That Is also a Travel Pillow - Telegraph
Hooides are often the first choice of casual wear around the house. Now the HoodiePillow aims to take the cosiness of a hooded jumper to the next level.Essentially a hood with a sleeping aid, the HoodiePillow comes with either a normal-sized pillowcase or an inflatable travel neck pillow attached. The hood has two drawstrings which can be used to adjust the hood around your head and "cocoon yourself away" for more privacy and shield your eyes from any unwanted light in the morning or at night. It is also oversized, so it can accommodate large headphones.Made with a "super soft" blend of cotton and polyester used in sweatshirts, the hooded pillowcase and pillow are said to help you "drift away from the daily commute, boring lectures or slow office days".The inflatable neck pillow can be deflated and folded for easy storage and is said to be ideal for sleeping or resting while travelling on planes, cars, buses or trains, or even for resting at home or the outdoors.The pillowcase is said to fit standard bed pillow sizes measuring around 20in x 32in. It comes with a small pocket, where you can store your smartphone or wallet, as well as portholes to keep your headphones "tangle-free" while listening to music.The HoodiePillow, currently priced at $19.95 and $22.95 depending on the pattern design, joins a series of odd travel accessories that have been proposed in recent months, all with the aim of helping you sleep better during your travels.Last month, a disc-shaped support pillow claimed to allow travellers to fall asleep wherever they are. The NapAnywhere pillow is a portable and collapsible foam structure that can be twisted into shape and perched between your head and shoulder, allowing you to sleep while travelling as a passenger on planes, trains, buses and cars. The unique pillow is said to be different from U-shaped neck pillows which can be "too bulky" and "feel claustrophobic" when wrapped around your neck.The Hoodie travel pillow (hoodiepillow.com) The TRTL, a "sleep scarf" designed to help you "travel rested and travel light" , was also introduced earlier this autumn. Weighing just 139 grams, the lightweight scarf is made with a new Internal Support System allowing you to rest your head or sleep in a comfortable upright position thanks to its bendy but structured form. The TRTL is said to offer more support than any other travel pillow on the market.Earlier this year, the 'b-tourist' band , a strange multi-purpose elastic band that is stretched between two plane seat headrests, was said to provide passengers with a private space in which to eat and sleep during a flight.It comes with two plastic rings that can be used to adjust the width of the band on both sides to create a full partition for complete privacy and can provide a place to rest your head while sleeping by connecting the centre points of the bottom edges of the band.The Hoodie pillowcase (hoodiepillow.com) In 2012, the unusually-shaped Ostrich Pillow was introduced, claiming to "enable power naps anytime, anywhere", including in airport lounges and on planes, and help counter the ill effects of jet lag and long-haul flights.Stuffed with synthetic material - "for maximum performance and lightness" - the distinctive-looking pillow has a hole in which to put your head, and a mouth hole designed to allow its wearer to breath easily. It also has two side holes where you can put your hands if needed.Telegraph Media Group Limited 2019 Need help?Visit our adblocking instructions page.
