Boston spa recommendations?

Need recommendations for a great day spa in Boston.

My friend and I are having a girls' weekend in August and we'd like to go to the spa for the day - have pedicures, massages, maybe a wrap. We're looking for more of an "urban oasis" than a salon/spa setup. Proximity to good food is a major plus, but that's not too tough in Boston. This is yet another time I wish there were more American equivalents of the onsen or sento, but the results when one googles "Asian spa Boston" are NOT what we're looking for!

My wife has enjoyed going to Le Pli at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square.

The Spa at the new Madarin Oriental Hotel.

Le Pli has excellent services, but it's not the best choice for a group pamper-fest (mostly because of the layout).

I hear great, great things about the Mandarin Oriental spa, but haven't been there myself.

G2O is a good choice for a group pamper-fest.

If you really want an "urban oasis" experience, there's also Inman Oasis, which is more of a hippy-dippy hot-tub-and-massage place, but no manis or pedis.

Wow, I guess I'm a hippy-dippy hot-tub-and-massage kind of girl! Inman Oasis looks perfect.

Thank you so much, everyone, for the help!

Seconding Inman Oasis. It's a great place run by good people.
