Come June, changes will go into effect at neighboring Newbury Street spa complexes, sister properties G2O and Emerge. Both brands are owned by Joymark, Inc., which will be consolidating the two into its G2O space following major renovations. Construction at G2O will go under way next month with completion and a grand reopening scheduled for June 1, set to coincide with the company's twentieth anniversary. Emerge will close on May 31.
The G2O brand is known for its focus on water-infused treatments, contained in a five story, double-width brownstone space with a green design. Playing off an aquatic blue and white color palette, the building is detailing with glass tiling, white lacquered finishes, and chrome accents. Amenities include a "Brine Inhalation Therapy" room, the "Bali Paradise Experience," sunless tanning, a skylit hot tub, and a penthouse lounge. The upcoming renovations will expand the spa's service capacity through a new massage room, medical-grade skincare equipment, and a reorganized lobby and retail area.
