Perhaps the warmest place within Philippe Starck’s ultra-cool Faena Hotel + Universe is its brick-walled spa salon, where candelabra lighting provides a flattering glow both before and after your chosen treatment. We recommend the Dead Sea mud scrub as well as the mint massage (the latter a lifesaver if you suffer jet lag). Feeling indulgent? Order up the La Prairie caviar body treatment — and the promise of a glass or two of Champagne afterwards to toast your body’s complete and utter rejuvenation, now prepped for a very late dalliance your first night in town — as is custom in BA, the other city that never sleeps.
