The ultra-modern (and ultra-pricey), SLS Beverly Hills is a design dream where visual stimulation and lots of luxury abound. Aside from the ultra-modern décor, two restaurants, and complimentary BMW house cars, SLS also boasts Ciel Spa, a 5,000-square-foot sanctuary, where freshly-squeezed agua fresca will be waiting for you as you enter the long, Philippe Starck-designed hallway. Every detail has been considered here, and treatments are customized for anything you may need; relaxing masage, healing body work, lymphatic drainage, slimming and tightening wraps, on and on. Never thought you could fall asleep to a facial? Try one here and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
For weeks now, you’ve talked about treating yourself to a nice deep-tissue massage. And the idea of a scented steam bath, followed by a manicure and maybe even a facial (why not?) doesn’t sound so bad either. Call it a staycation, call it a mental health day—however you want to rationalize your visit to one of L.A.’s heavenly hotel spas is fine with us. From luscious coffee-and-lemon body scrubs to Chinese acupuncture or mineral soaking pools, each of these hotel spas offers a slightly different twist on “aahhh.” And we guarantee you’ll be impressed with the results.
