San Diego's Spa Mecca
The Best In The West Rivals Miami’s Spa Scene
In the beginning, there was the luxurious Golden Door, then Rancho La Puerta was created by the amazing philanthropist
and holistic enthusiast Deborah Szekely. Now, there are dozens of alluring spas, including Omni La Costa’s Premiere Fitness
Camp where you can spa and get your “ohm” on with Deepak Chopra. Here are two other gracious San Diego spas, a perfect respite during Tampa Bay’s humid summers, easily reached nonstop on Southwest Airlines.
Paradise Point Resort & Spa: With an eco-conscious renovation and a coastal cool aesthetic both modern and tropical,
the 462 bungalows, multiple pools and spa beckon you to stay and play. The Spa at Paradise Point was voted one of the top 100 U.S. resort spas by Condé Nast Traveler, serving up island-inspired body treatments, facials and massage, from sugar glows to heavenly milk soaks. Reflexology, scalp massages, Balinese lomi lomi massage and mommy-to-be or bride pamperings are unforgettable. paradisepointspa.com
The Spa at Rancho Valencia: This is the ultimate destination for tranquility, celebrating the revitalizing benefits of herbs, flowers, oils and minerals. Deep stone massage, invigorating body treatments, anti-aging face serum, skin refreshing microdermabrasian and the lush resort caters to sophisticated ladies and gents who can use the pool, take fitness classes or experience a couples’ spa day. The wildcrafted + organic facial radiantly regenerates skin with a skin-softening honey and goji berry mask followed by a refining polish. An herbal mask balances the skin in preparation for nourishing peptide serums and Vitamin C for a toned, dewy complexion. The C + C citrus body scrub polishes the skin with vitamin C, green tea and rosehip. ranchovalencia.com/spa-resort-san-diego
