Castle Hotel & Spa opened their spa in Summer 2013. Sankara Spa, with its luxurious interior embraces warm tones and soothing light with carefully designed furnishings that induce calm and tranquility in contrast to the frenzied life outside. The holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness offered in a wide variety of treatments including the signature massage – a deep-tissue massage using palm strokes, thumb pressure, and traditional technique to relieve and heal muscular pains.

The stunning architectural design of the spa gracefully emerges from the serene wooded landscape in a simple yet sophisticated building that utilizes stone walls and minimal exterior openings to blend with its peaceful setting. A massive stone wall guides the guest through an opening into a sheltered interior courtyard. The walls flanking the courtyard are transparent floor-to-ceiling glass creating a contrast with the solid stone wall exterior.

Just 25 miles north of Manhattan, Castle Hotel & Spa offers a haven for tranquility and relaxation in a stunning hilltop setting with astonishing vistas of the Hudson River Valley. The 8,000 square-foot Sankara Spa features amenities such as steam, whirlpool, relaxation lounges, and a private VIP treatment room. Private health and fitness classes are available by reservation.
