Stay local for your next vacation and opt for a “spa-cation”, an alternative that’s almost as budget-friendly (no airfare or lodging required) but far more rejuvenating. There are few better places to take advantage of beachside hotel spa retreats than Santa Monica, particularly when you choose Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, nestled just steps from the ocean with a recently transformed pool deck with oversized loungers and cabanas, perfect for ultimate pre or post spa relaxation.
Recently named one of the “Best Hotel Spas” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler, Ocean Spa & Fitness underwent a complete transformation in 2009, now complete with eco-friendly design and an expansive fitness center. The group fitness studio offers the perfect amenity to take advantage of upon the start of your spa-cation: pilates or yoga. There’s no better way to mentally and physically unwind as a way to prepare for the full potential of your awaited spa treatment.
After a few minutes of “savasana”, now in a pure, yoga-inspired state of bliss, there’s no better time to unravel horizontally into a treatment room for wholesome, well-deserved pampering. As one Santa Monica’s only spas to offer oxygen-infused spa skincare treatments, you will want to choose one of their signature oxygen-infused treatments, the only treatments in the world to produce immediate, medical-grade results without invasive injections or chemicals. Offered through Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion skincare treatments, the services use pressurized oxygen to deliver a unique moisture binding serum to deeper layers of the skin. With just one treatment, skin is visibly and undeniably younger and wrinkles are dramatically reduced, all without injections. Known as “Hollywood’s best kept secret”, such treatments are highly favored by Madonna, Eva Longoria and Justin Timberlake, and now conveniently available in the laid-back, coastal backyard of Santa Monica, further creating renewed spa-cation transformation.
While the oxygen-infused spa skincare treatments are the most popular, Ocean Spa & Fitness additionally offers a host of other nurturing and transforming treatments, such as Heated Lava Shell Massages to Aroma-Synergy Massages used with Organic Essential Oils. After treatment, you will want to allow time to enjoy a few of the other amenities available on your spa-cation. Spend a few moments in either the dry sauna or eucalyptus steam room or head to the pool deck to bask in the sun for a bite to eat. Blissfully complete your spa-cation and order a fresh lime mohito or a frozen margarita (or a few) and watch the sun slowly drift into the Pacific Ocean: you are sure to re-discover there is no need to travel very far to have it all.
