Double Your Pleasure

Celebrate love with luxurious spa treatments for two

Relax as a duo for Valentine’s Day.

Greater Palm Springs CVB

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
The You Two treatment at Ace Hotel & Swim Club’s Feel Good Spa starts with a detoxifying facial and dry body brushing to rev up circulation and get you glowing, followed by a replenishing sea algae body mask, rosemary body lotion, side-by-side Swedish massage, and scalp massage. 701 E. 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. Add a mani/pedi, Chocolate Sun spray tan, and a delicious spa lunch — and come out ready for your glamour shots. 415 S. Belardo Rd., Palm Springs. 760-320 4117;

Blissful togetherness
At Two Bunch Palms Spa Resort, Hollywood VIPs book the Roman Bath Ritual, a personalized massage followed by a private, candlelit Roman bath with magnesium-rich salts and aromatic oils blended to amplify the mood. 67425 Two Bunch Palms Trl., Desert Hot Springs. 760-329-8791;

The Revive package at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa features massages, a bubble bath laden with minerals and trace elements, and a bit of play while you treat your partner to a cooling gel masque, hydrating lavender body spray, and nourishing facial moisturizer — served up with Champagne and fresh fruit, of course. 74855 Country Club Dr., Palm Desert. 760-341-2211;

SpaTerre at Riviera Palm Springs Resort & Spa lets you choose any massage and body therapy as couples treatments. Try the signature Balinese massage for total relaxation and the Island Fresh Scrub to get your skin glowing, soft, and smelling delightfully of fresh coconut. 1600 N. Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-327-8311;

For a zero-calorie dessert after a day of shopping, bring your honey to Sunstone Spa at Agua Caliente Casino • Resort • Spa for the extravagant milk-and-honey Rock Candy treatment — a warm milk-and-honey soak, yummy sugar scrub, and heated milk-and-honey massage. 35250 Bob Hope Dr., Rancho Mirage. 760-202-2121;

When your true love likes to chase sticks …
Dog-lovers, head for Spa La Quinta at La Quinta Resort & Club. Treat your pooch to an hourlong massage with a certified animal massage therapist, or — the spa offers this, too — get massaged together. It’s a bonding experience guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a wag in his tail. 49499 Eisenhower Dr., La Quinta. 760-777-4800;
