At the Spa

In recent years my wife and I have enjoyed going to spas when traveling (typically a hotel spa) or for special occasions (birthdays, anniversary, celebrations). I have confined myself to massages and an occasional facial, but there are lots of options (more than you can reasonably consider, I think) depending on your preferences...and wallet.

Costs vary, depending on where you go and what you have done, but you can count on spending a fair amount of money plus gratuity. And if you go to a spa for several days or a week the costs can really add up (thousands of dollars). Overall, I consider a few hours at a day spa to be well worth the money, given the sense of well-being and relaxation, and simply treating ourselves when work becomes too stressful or to celebrate a birthday or anniversary is a nice reward.

The Spa at the Four Seasons in Carlsbad is terrific, having been there at least 4 times now since we moved here last year. While we live right by La Costa Spa and Resort we have not yet gone, but I have heard great things about their spa, as well as about the Chopra Center. The Spa at Torrey Pines, La Valencia and Estancia (all in La Jolla) also come highly recommended. Perhaps you know of others that you like, or have had an experience you would like to share?
