Spa Montage Beverly Hills
Spa Montage Beverly Hills feels more like a Spanish castle than a spa in downtown LA. The lavish facilities include Turkish steam rooms, Redwood saunas and a giant, gold-gilded mineral bath. If that’s not enough luxury, book the diamond facial.
Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach
South Beach is known for its spa scene but none compare to Fountainbleau. The resort’s Lapis Spa features an incredible water journey program. You’ll feel like you’re on a futuristic spaceship with modern, marble design everywhere and over-the-top hydrotherapy experiences like a deluge shower and rain tunnel.
LakeHouse Spa at Lake Austin Spa Resort
Couples wanting to take the day off and unwind together should head to the LakeHouse Spa at Lake Austin Spa Resort for luxurious herbal and botanical treatments like the Lemongrass Mimosa Body Scrub or massage with antioxidant-rich citrus lotion. The spa’s elegant Blue Room is the perfect spot to cozy up with a cup of tea or just take a cat nap.
If you need a digital detox, head to Sedona, Arizona, for a cleanse in stunning Boynton Canyon. Mii Amo’s holistic spa experiences are inspired by the surrounding red rocks and local Hopi culture. Outdoor treatments take place in traditional wickiup lodges and feature burning sweetgrass.
Chuan Spa at The Langham Chicago
Escape the Windy City for a day of Zen at Chuan Spa. "Chuan" means flowing water in Chinese, and, true to its name, the spa features pre-therapy bathing rituals like a Himalayan salt stone sauna and chamomile-infused steam room. For something different, try the Chuan Tao of Detox treatment featuring an algae wrap, Chinese ginger body oil and an acupressure massage.
The Spa at Terranea
Take a break from LA’s stressful traffic and soak up the sun in Rancho Palos Verdes. The Spa at Terranea Resort features suites that overlook the pool and ocean for ultimate relaxation. Try a custom treatment with honey from Terranea’s own beehives. And don’t skip the relaxation room. It juts out over the coast for prime whale watching.
The Spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn
If you can’t swing the price tag for a room at The Omni Grove Park Inn, a day pass to the spa is well worth it. The Asheville, North Carolina, resort features an impressive cave system of pools and spas with more than 20 water features. The lap pool even has underwater music. After swimming, cozy up in an oversized chair in one of the spa’s fireside lounges.
The Spa at Four Seasons Orlando
Located on property, within the Disney park grounds, Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect spot for a mini escape from Orlando’s theme parks. After walking all day in the heat, treat yourself to luxe pampering at the resort’s spa. The massage tables are outfitted with special aromatherapy bowls under the headrest so you can breathe easy during treatments. And the waterfront relaxation room is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book. You might even spot an Egret or Heron on the shore.
Poconos Spa at The Lodge at Woodloch
Just two hours outside of NYC, Pennsylvania’s The Lodge at Woodloch is the ultimate urban escape. The adults-only Poconos Spa features an Aqua-Garden with hydro-massage water walls and a Whisper Lounge with cozy fireplaces. Spend a lazy afternoon outside on the spa terrace in an old-fashioned rocking chair.
Canyon Ranch Lenox
Canyon Ranch is the leader in destination spas and the company’s East Coast expansion in Lenox, Massachusetts, transports guests to the Gilded Age in a historic mansion. In addition to traditional treatments and spa facilities, the Berkshires wellness resort features hiking, biking and canoeing excursions to take in the New England coast.
