The philosophy at The Beverly Hilton’s Aqua Star Babor Beauty Spa is simple: combine old school Beverly Hills glamour with relaxing California living to make every guest feel like a star. Using a combination of organic products, the spa aims to leave you feeling pampered, relaxed and revitalized.
The Beverly Hilton’s Aqua Star Pool, located next door to the spa, opened in 1955, so the midcentury modern feel extends to the design of the spa. The relaxation lounge and locker rooms are done up in retro hues of brown, avocado green and cream, while the furnishings are sleek and mod, from the winged chairs to the sleek silver lamps. Treatments, performed by trained therapists, range from massages and facials to body wraps and scrubs, and are delivered in rooms decorated with relaxing beach themes: There’s a starfish laid atop every massage table before a treatment begins and soothing sand-colored walls. After a treatment, stop by the Aqua Star Pool where you can have a foot massage without leaving your lounge chair, or enjoy a fresh salad or sandwich served poolside.
Because The Beverly Hilton plays host to star-studded awards shows and events throughout the year, don’t be surprised if you bump into a celebrity during your stay. They come here to get red carpet ready with spray tans in the spa’s St. Tropez spray booth, or to detox in the eucalyptus steam shower.
