Full confession: I’m a bit of a spa junkie. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate the power of therapeutic all-about-me time and make regular spa treatments a priority. Here are my top three spa picks in Seattle:
The only Forbes Travel Guide Star-Rated spa in the Emerald City is The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. This luxurious Four-Star spa is known for its unique massages (try the hot lava massage), as well as its soothing wraps and romantic couples' treatments.
Vida Spa at Seattle Pan Pacific Hotel is pure Zen in the city. The space is understated and the emphasis is on soothing, results-oriented services. I adore their Ayurvedic treatments, especially a massage combined with time in their Swedana, a cedar steam box that purifies all the toxins released during massage. They also have the ability to combine treatment rooms for group treatments.
For indulgent pedicures, I love Spaahh at Hotel 1000. The full-service spa offers a full gamut of services, including Carita facials, but the perk I adore is that they offer their happy hour menu I the spa. Basically, this means mojitos and pedicures – the best way to spend quality pampering time with your gal pals.
Massage at Gene Juarez is a bi-weekly habit. Their aromatherapy massage calms all my bodily aches and pains and I always feel at home when I walk into their salon and spa. From the moment the spa hostess takes me to the changing room, then serves tea in the lounge area, all of my stress and worries melt away.
