One of our all-time favorite places to host a wedding, or even just a weekend of pampering and relaxation isCastle Hotel & Spa in Tarrytown, New York. Although located just 25 miles north of Manhattan, the Castle is something of another world. Evoking charming old-world style in its contemporary amenities, accommodations include 31 luxurious guest rooms and suites of more than 1,000 square feet each. Sumptuous and award-winning cuisine may be devoured in the hotel’s Equus Restaurant, where Chef Marc Lippman delivers a uniquely masterful French-inspired culinary experience with every bite.

Now after an extensive eight month long, $11 Million dollar construction project, the eagerly awaited THANN Sanctuary Spa at the Castle Hotel & Spa invites guests to relax and be pampered. The 8,700 square-foot luxurious spa is the first of its kind in the United States, offering THANN services, which are known throughout Asian an as oasis of peace and tranquility, offering a wide variety of luxurious spa treatments based on THANN’s art of natural therapy, where all of the senses are awakened by the unique holistic spa concept and ambience.

We highly recommend the THANN Sanctuary Signature Massage (and go for the 90 minutes- you won’t be sorry!). Described as a “total Zen” rejuvenating experience, the promise lives true. This signature massage implements firm and steady pressure of the palm, thumb, and forearm, as this deep tissue treatment works to soothe and relieve muscular aches and pains. Blending traditional Thai massage and other Asian healing techniques, it brings about total relaxation through stretching and deep massage. The stretching in Thai massage also releases endorphins which further promote the relaxation response. As with all THANN treatments, this is a very personal and customizable experience, tailored to your preferences, tension areas, and whatever else you wish to communicate to your therapist. From the moment you are greeted by the knowledgable and friendly staff at the THANN Sanctuary Spa with soothing tea, to the private VIP room that you may reserve just prior to and after your spa treatments, the experience is nothing short of nirvana.
