Exclusive pampering in Beverly Hills
6 Treatment Rooms
Opened in June 2017 on the iconic corner of Santa Monica and Wilshire boulevards, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills has made a splash. From the rooftop bar with dazzling cityscape views to the first Jean-George Vongerichten restaurant on the West Coast, the hotel is dedicated to exclusive experiences — including its La Prairie Spa.
Located on the second floor, the spa is by La Prairie, the premium Swiss skincare line with groundbreaking, eternal-youth formulas. Around the world, the brand is synonymous with luxury, gracing the shelves of high-end department stores, like Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
With exclusive rights, the hotel’s 5,000-square foot spa is now the only place in Los Angeles to revel in La Prairie’s treatments. One perk from this arrangement is that you’ll find treatments unique to the spa, including the Ultimate Radiance Experience, which includes a Perfecting Radiance Facial with a gold mask, a body wrap and massage, and the fit-for-a-celebrity Diamond Day, which includes a signature La Prairie Facial and Diamond Perfection Body Treatment, manicure, pedicure, makeup consultation and champagne lunch.
• Excellent La Prairie products are used in all the treatments offered at this Beverly Hills spa.
• Facials are customizable to your needs. You can add on any of the state-of-the-art anti-aging bonus treatments, such as an oxygen, collagen infusion or diamond microdermabrasion.
• Carve out some extra time to enjoy the multi-sensory shower — there’s one in each of the changing rooms near the restrooms. Enjoy an array of water effects, like tropical rain or a cold waterfall, along with soothing lighting and music.
• The spa’s main entrance impresses with a golden Koons-esque chandelier and a dramatically elegant, black-and-gold accented front desk with Italian marble flooring — you’ll know you’re in for a royal treat.
• The lounge area is petite, but dark and cozy with white leather lounge chairs, gourmet tea and healthy refreshments.
Things to Know
• Ask your personal concierge to book your treatment for you — each guest is assigned his or her very own.
• The Los Angeles spa only has six treatment rooms, so if you want to reserve for a group, say, for a wedding party or birthday, make sure to reserve a few months in advance.
• There’s no rush to get to the Beverly Hills spa after a full of day of exploring or shopping. It’s open every day from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
• Using opulent ingredients like caviar, diamonds and gold, La Prairie’s treatments are nothing less than indulgent.
• Ideal for brightening and evening the skin, the Caviar Lifting and Firming Facial includes a caviar-infused eye and face massage (don’t worry, there’s no fishy scent) that leaves the complexion feeling refreshed and smooth.
• For a luxurious indulgence, opt for the Diamond Perfection Body Treatment. A body scrub with La Prairie’s Cellular Mineral Body Exfoliator (complete with diamond powder) followed by a massage with Skin Caviar Luxe Souffle Body Cream leaves your skin feeling silky smooth.
• While other L.A. spas offer singular LED light therapy, The La Prairie Spa at Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills provides the whole spectrum of individual LED colors, allowing for an acutely personalized treatment. For example, blue light reduces acne, while red helps promote skin cell regeneration.
• Upon check-in, you’ll be escorted to the intimate lounge and dressing room, where silken white bathrobes and slippers await. Slip into the steam room for a pre-treatment relaxation.
• Afterward, there’s no need to go up to your room to get ready — showers, large cotton towels and a generous selection of bathroom amenities are available, from shaving to dental kits.
• Treatment rooms are spacious and candle lit with soothing music in the background. If romance is the reason you’re visiting La Prairie Spa at the Waldorf Beverly Hills, make sure to reserve the couple’s suite.
• There is a 1,000-square-foot 24-hour health club on the lower floor of the spa. Plus, there’s a salon by celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham.
