The Rockaway Hotel + Spa
The Rockaway Hotel + Spa was created as an idyllic destination getaway just steps from New York City’s only surfing beach, providing year-round access to nature, community and fitness through yoga, meditation, sound baths and seasonal classes such as mushroom foraging or craft cocktail sessions – perfect complements to its beach bungalow aesthetic.
Sleep comfortably in one of our luxurious suites (1 and 2-bedroom cottages are ideal for longer stays), featuring soundproofing and temperature-regulated bedding. At our spa, guests can indulge in rejuvenating treatments such as aloe and CBD facials, sea salt scrubs with eucalyptus extract, or eucalyptus body scrubs designed to refresh mind, body and spirit.
Day passes are available for those seeking to unwind in one of the cedar barrel saunas encircling the outdoor pool, take yoga class or participate in sculpt workout sessions, then indulge in treatments like recovery massage with sea extracts and white tea, or a grounding aloe and green clay body wrap.
