ABC Travel Show Best Spas

Just finished shooting our second ABC Travel Show. In this one I highlight some top spas from around the world that I found when traveling and researching my TRAVEL THERAPY book. GMA’s Marysol Castro and I shot our segment at the fabulous Mandarin Oriental Spa in NYC.

 We actually shot in the ultra exclusive VIP room, a celebrity favorite hideout for A-listers looking for the ultimate spa escape that guarantees complete privacy!  The VIP spa room at the Mandarin Oriental starts at around $1,100 dollars to have the room for 3-hours and that includes two spa treatment and some yummy snacks.

 For our shoot we hung out on the huge Asian inspired day bed and nibbled on the yummy bento box of goodies they brought us. Here’s a great shot of the ABC Travel Show Team!

What’s great about this VIP spa room is that it has floor to ceiling windows looking out over Central Park. Talk about top, prime real-estate to have in NYC for a spa! Just the view alone is inspiring and relaxing.

For my segment I concentrated on some of the top spas in the world offerin up a variety of different experiences and destinations and also found spas where you can get some great specials right now like 30 percent off and one night free at the resort.
