February’s Sweet Spa Escapes

Treat yourselves to rubbing, scrubbing and pampering

The desert’s spas are going all out for romance in February with specials galore.

Make it a just-me splurge, or bring a BFF and treat yourselves to rubbing, scrubbing, and pampering. Just a few of the options:

Spa Esmeralda at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa has a special Indulgence package available for the rest of the month, featuring a Swedish massage and deep cleansing facial topped off with a chocolate treat, glass of Champagne and custom-blended aromatherapy oil to take home.

Fresh flowers, fresh fruit and a light-filled lounge area extend the bliss at Spa Las Palmas.

At Spa Las Palmas, the Berries and Bubbly Mani/Pedi whips up a milk soak, strawberry sugar exfoliating treatment and Champagne-infused moisturizer for sparkling digits. Add on the Blushing Valentine’s facial to refine your visage and, if your date is in the mood, the Bit of Bliss couples massage to turn up the heat and inspire romance.

Estrella Spa at Avalon Hotel thinks you two should spend the day together, and they’ve put together a package that has you relaxing by the pool, noshing on a tasty, healthy lunch in a private cabana, and kicking back with a couples massage in the “private romance room” and outdoor shower.

Couples looking for total indulgence can book a special spa suite for the Couples Revive package at the Spa at Marriott Desert Springs. Treats include side-by side massages, bubble baths, gel masques, hydrating lavender body spray, facial moisturizers and nibbles of fresh fruit accompanied by chilled Champagne.

Chocolate’s power as a super antioxidant and feel-good food has been known for centuries, and recent science tells us that the scent of sweet chocolate increases the brain’s theta waves, inducing relaxation and a feeling of well-being.

Spa at the Riviera Resort is the place to go for “My Chocolate Fix” this month, a full body exfoliation with soft cream sugar, a chocolate butter wrap and relaxing scalp massage, and a final application of chocolate scented body creams to smooth and soothe you into theta bliss.

This, along with all the Spa’s massage treatments, can be booked as a couples experience or single indulgence — no date needed.
