You'd be lucky to get pampered in any of the five couples nooks at this spa, where extendable walls that normally divide individual treatment rooms open to reveal side-by-side beds.

As part of the Couples Aromatherapy Massage, your technicians will work with you to create a custom blend of ailment-curing essential oils—like peppermint for headache relief or lavender to alleviate insomnia—that will be used during your hour-long, Swedish-style rubdowns. To help you loosen up even more, the VIP Suite comes with complimentary champagne.
