HOLLYWOOD LUMINARIES AND D.C. ROYALTY have made La Quinta Resort & Club their wellness retreat for decades. Escape from everyday eyes into a Spanish colonial sanctuary that fuses science and ancient practices. It’s home to multi-award-winning Spa La Quinta (www.laquintaresort.com), which has mastered the perfect backrub in four timeless traditions, rejuvenating your inner spirit.
1 — SOAK muscles in a private outdoor Garden Bath ($50) of hydrating oils and agua fresco.
2 — EXFOLIATE with the native benefits of a California Essential ($180) and the age-old art of dry brushing.
3 — RELAX in the Hawaiian tradition of Lomi Lomi ($180) as “loving hands” push flowing strokes down the core.
4 — REPLENISH with a Focused Massage ($90) that invigorates and targets the last of the hidden tension.
