This cozy outdoor spa feels more like Scandinavia than Brooklyn


This winter, you can relax in a private red cedar sauna or soak in a hot tub while enjoying stunning views of the New York City skyline. 

Winter Spa at The William Vale hotel in Brooklyn is now open through March 2023 offering a cozy, Scandinavian-inspired wellness experience.

RECOMMENDED: A giant urban bathhouse is opening in Brooklyn next month

The al fresco pop-up spa features five cedar saunas and two hot tubs on the luxury hotel’s outdoor terrace, where you can sweat out all the stress of the year in a tranquil urban oasis.

“Guests love enjoying the views from the dome window within the sauna barrel and the night time is just as special when the city lights up, perfect for a romantic date with a loved one or with yourself,” the hotel said in a press release.

The hotel promises that the spa will leave you feeling recharged and transformed both physically and mentally, with relaxed muscles and ready for deeper sleep. The hotel recommends wearing a bathing suit; you must be at least partially clothed to visit the Winter Spa and the amenities. Robes and slippers will be provided. Here’s more about the rules and how to enjoy the experience.
