Our Favorite SoCal Spas
Planning a spa day is a great way to treat your body well and reward yourself for all of your hard work. There’s nothing more relaxing than allowing yourself to be pampered. For those who live or are planning to travel in the Southern California area, there are many great spa options. You’ll want a luxurious spa that will treat you with extra care.
The Spa at Terranea
When you spend the afternoon at The Spa at Terranea, you get more than just great spa treatments. You also get a gorgeous view of the Palos Verdes coastline. This spa is located inside of the impressive Terranea Resort. Plan to book a spa treatment like the stone therapy massage and the renewed youth facial and then head to the spa pool for the afternoon. You’ll leave here feeling refreshed.
The Ritz Carlton Spa Los Angeles
Ritz Carlton is one of those luxury hotel brands that know how to run a great spa. Their downtown Los Angeles location is no exception. You’re instantly welcomed into the spa with a glass of champagne. Choose a service or two from their spa menu — we recommend the deep muscle massage and the red carpet radiance facial. Finally, enjoy the steam room and comfortable relaxation rooms.
The Spa at Fairmont Grand Del Mar
Another excellent spa choice is The Spa at Fairmont Grand Del Mar. This spa offers beauty services, spa treatments, fitness center access with classes, and saunas and a relaxation pool. Our favorite is the herbal salt scrub and the grand masterpiece facial. Enjoy spending the afternoon in this beautiful and comfortable spa area.
Cal a Vie Health Spa
For health-focused travelers, we recommend a visit to the Cal a Vie Health Spa. From spa treatments to wellness programs, this spa has it all. Whether you choose to stay at the luxurious retreat resort or visit for the day, you can learn about your own health needs here. Favorite treatments include the restorative deep pore cleanse, the aromatic awakening massage, and the lavender honey wrap. From the gorgeous property to the attentive staff, you’ll have a memorable spa experience.
Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa
Lastly, we recommend the Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa. You’ll love this refreshing and calm oasis—the waterfalls offer the perfect backdrop for your spa experience. Uniquely crafted spa treatments are plentiful here—try the Valencia diamond lift, nourishing wrap, and the elemental massage. Private luxury cabanas are available for rental at the spa pool. In addition to spa treatments, a great selection of fitness classes and wellness events are available.
