A few weeks ago, I had an amazing weekend with friends and family celebrating my 26th birthday. My boyfriend went above and beyond the call of duty–planning a weekend full of surprises with clues along the way. It was perfect!
The first surprise of the weekend was a trip to one of Hoboken’s newest neighbors- Sojo Spa Club. Upon walking in, I was so blown away that I could not stop taking photos. Words just don’t do Sojo justice.
When you enter the spa, you are brought to the first level “Shoe Locker Room”. This is a locker specifically for your shoes, as you are not allowed to wear footwear within the facility. You will receive a bracelet, which will be your lifeline at Sojo. It is your key to your locker(s), and also serves as your running tab for the day (more on that later).
After putting your shoes in the proper location, you are then directed upstairs to the men and women locker rooms. There, you are given yet another locker, and your “spa clothes” for the day. Warning: THESE ARE NOT CUTE. With a tap of my bracelet, I rented a robe for $5.00 instead. Totally worth it!
We started off our day on the rooftop infinity pool overlooking the NYC skyline. We soaked up some sun, and were one of many people working on that perfecting that ‘gram. Safe to say, it wasn’t hard to get a good shot.
Next, we made our way to the cafe for some food. It had so many healthy and yummy options. We opted to try the tofu & pork baos which were beyond delicious! It being my birthday, I had a goal of eating an ice cream cone everyday that weekend. So of course I had to finish off the meal with a vanilla soft serve ice cream.
Fabian and I spent the rest of the afternoon hopping through the five saunas, three therapy rooms, and three outdoor baths. It may sound hectic–but I was nothing but relaxed.
This summer if you are looking for something to escape your everyday hustle and bustle–I highly recommend Sojo to all my fellow Hobokenites and NYC residents (there is a free shuttle on the weekends from Port Authority). P.S.–Don’t forget your sunscreen!
