Relax as a duo for Valentine’s Day.

Flowers, candy, silly cards, and perfume are safe valentines — but a couple’s spa date is euphoric.

Lucky you: The desert’s top spas have couples services to massage, buff, and polish you and your sweetie to perfection, wrapping you in a cloud of endorphins that lasts far beyond Valentine’s Day.

TLC for hard-playing hipsters

Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-866-6188;

The brand-new Rock Spa at the Hard Rock Hotel gently brings you out of winter hibernation mode with the decadent Rock of Love escape — almost five hours of customized body polishing, body wraps, massages, facials, scalp massages, and a Champagne or tea ceremony served with fresh berries and organic chocolates. 150 S. Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-325-9676;

Step into a private poolside cabana at Estrella Spa in the Viceroy Hotel for its Retreat — full pampering with an oxygen facial to perk up your skin, a couples massage, and a foot/leg treatment.
