QC Terme Spas & Resorts’ long-anticipated day spa has opened today within three historic buildings on Governors Island. QC NY is the luxury resort brand’s first property outside of Europe and features relaxation rooms, themed saunas, Vichy showers, infrared beds, foot baths, hydro jets, steam baths, and other amenities meant to induce bliss. The resort will be the island’s first year-round commercial tenant.

An oasis just minutes away from the city by ferry, QC NY’s grounds feature breathtaking views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. The property’s outdoor thermal pools face the Manhattan skyline and provide views of the New York Harbor.

Guests will have the option to purchase massages, which can be customized in terms of music, technique, and aromas. Massages can be booked for 25, 50, or 75-minute sessions.

Guests will receive a private locker for storing personal belongings, as well as bathrobes, sandals, towels, and shower products. Swimsuits are required to use the resort’s amenities.

“QC NY is the escape and pampering that New Yorkers have been waiting for. After years of planning, restoration, and building, we are so proud to bring this enchanting oasis to the city,” Janine DiGioacchino, CEO of QC US, said. “Now, more than ever, we all need and deserve mental and physical self-care. QC NY is the perfect place to relax, revive, and restore.”

Food and drink from Italian brands like Mionetto Prosecco and illy Coffee will be available for purchase.

Governors Island was first transferred from federal to city control in 2012. When the island was first transferred over, the Trust for Governors Island searched for proposals that would adapt over 50 of the island’s former military buildings for reuse. In 2015, QC NY was chosen as one of the first year-round residents of the island, as Curbed NY reported.

QC NY is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Day passes start at $88 and include entire space access, amenities for the whole day, and a roundtrip ferry ticket.

Massages can be booked by appointment and range from $100-$250. Food and drink can be purchased separately. Teachers, first responders, firefighters, police officers, and veterans are eligible for a 10 percent discount.
