In the beautiful Catskill Mountains, 2 hours north of NYC, sits a beautiful rejuvenation spa that is designed to help you and your girlfriends reach your fullest potential. If you and the gals are looking for a place to get a head start on anything that will help you attain your own personal level of health and fitness, the Copperhead Retreat and Spa is the place for your girlfriend getaway.

The New Age Spa
The New Age Spa, also located in the Catskills, is a woodsy retreat that offers a variety of unique events that not many other spas offer. Bellydancing, aromatherapy massage, Pilates, and aquarobics are just a few of the different activities offered. Their menus are based on seasonal produce, and are all prepared in-house to ensure the highest quality and richest nutrient content. In addition, many of their vegetables and herbs are grown on-site, maximizing freshness. The New Age Spa also offers guidance with juice fasting, featuring a full menu of seasonal juices to pick from for each “meal” of your fast. Their fasting programs vary from an extended weekend to a full-week stay. Please check their website for further information as they will be closed through May 2012. If you are planning an adventure for later in the year, this may be a favorite destination.
These three spas are recognized as some of the most famous spas in the state. They all offer a resting place, superb spa services, and delicious cuisine to enhance your stay. Everyone will agree that your girls only trip to New York must include a stop at one of these spas.
