HISTORY + VISION
Providing “The Formula for the Essentials of Life,” G2O is Boston’s largest Day Spa Resort for men, women and couples. Founder and CEO Joyce Hampers opened her first spa, Giuliano, in 1994 on Newbury St. in Boston’s Back Bay with the mission to create a one-stop oasis for all beauty needs while offering lavish amenities and innovative spa and salon services. To this day, G2O lives by this mission to provide a place that rejuvenates while connecting the mind, body and spirit.
Quickly establishing itself as “The Grande Dame” of Newbury Street, Giuliano was by far the largest and most complete spa-salon location in the area at the time and came to represent the high standards by which other spas would measure themselves. The fresh concept was so enthusiastically embraced by clients that Giuliano was expanded in 1997 and again in 2001 to offer an even broader range of treatments. Through it all, Joyce remained vigilant in pursuing new ideas and trend-setting technology. Such that, in 2005, she once more revitalized and refocused the entire facility to create G2O Spa & Salon.
In 2018, G2O relocated to Exeter Street to a 17,000-square foot space designed to optimize the guest’s experience with brand new, unparalleled services and amenities in a state-of-the art space.
At G2O Spa & Salon, water is acknowledged as a life force that sustains, rejuvenates and cleanses. Water, of course, is a common denominator for us all, making up 80% of the human body.
With shimmering glass tiles, white lacquered finishes and sparkling chrome accents, G2O offers a refreshing, whole body and mind experience designed to complement the contemporary urban lifestyle. The tone throughout the building’s three floors is both fresh and modern.
It has always been extremely important to G2O that the facilities are created and constructed with sustainability in mind. From non-toxic paints, adhesives and glues, closed foam insulation with a high R value, high efficiency hot water heaters and washers and dryers, as well as low energy consumption LED lights, the Exeter Street facility exhibits a system of heightened efficiency.
