Escape to Bali at this Santa Monica spa oasis. Behind nondescript wooden doors lies lush landscape and a bungalow-style houses where sore muscles are massaged and pulled and tired skin is soothed and softened. Relax in the alfresco patio and sip on warm ginger tea before and after your treatment. Start with a flower and milk foot soak, then head inside for a Swedish-style Zen ($95 for 60 minutes,$190 for 120 minutes) or Thai massage ($95 for 60 minutes, $190 for 120 minutes). The specialty of the house is the dry enzyme bath, where relaxing and detoxing mean sweating like a farm animal. The Japanese ritual—used by Olympic athletes—involves laying in a soaking tubs filled with heat-generating mix of fine wood shavings, rice bran and fruit and vegetable enzymes. If the experience sounds intense, it is; but the warm and helpful staff, make the session relaxing and make you feel pampered, albeit in dirt. Don't forget to visit retail store and stock up on organic and natural skin care products, detox kits, candles and enzyme tonics.

Lovely ambience if you are looking to escape the city, at an affordable rate. The spa has a rustic Thai, gentle and willowy feel. Therapists are great and customer service is fantastic. It's a simple spot, so the locker rooms and bathrooms are very basic, and the spa is contained in a small, renovated home. There's no extra features like pools etc. But if you want great value for money and the need for a quick escape, I recommend Willow Spa.
