The brand spankin’ new, 10,000-square-foot Body By Brooklyn Spa and Lounge, which opened at 275 Park Ave., at Washington Avenue, in Clinton Hill in March, is remarkable for its size - 10 treatment rooms - as well as its attention to each luxurious detail.

The range of services runs the gamut from facials to massages to body treatments to "platza" (scrubbing with a broom made of fresh oak leaves) in their Russian sauna.

According to partner Mira Goldin, there isn’t a nail care area in BBB, because portable carts will bring hand and foot attention to the client’s treatment room.

Architect Moon Kim used soothing beige and chocolate brown - with invigorating splashes of green - in the spacious lounge (pictured), replete with a fireplace and restaurant, overseen by chef Adrieno Rodriguez. While you could imagine this room brimming with well-heeled Brooklynites, the clients will enjoy the space while wearing robes and slippers.

BBB has locker rooms with private showers, a wet treatment room with tsunami showerhead, a wet lounge with hot and cold pools, and suites for couples.
