2014 Winner: Bliss

Most spas aim to soothe. At Bliss, it’s all about energy, from the brightly lit rooms to the R&B soundtrack. Bliss prides itself on cheeky massage add-ons, like “love handler” tightening treatments. A Boston favorite is 24-Heaven for dry skin, which includes an oatmeal mask, a Vichy shower and lathering with intense body balm. A sink-side tester bar—with free product samples—is a welcome touch. So is the relaxation lounge, stocked with tea and, yes, brownies.
