Vista Blue Spa

Monterey’s ocean-inspired wellness retreat

When you need a break from the bustling attractions of downtown Monterey, Vista Blue Spa offers an inviting destination for coastal Californian relaxation. Perched atop the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, the refuge provides just that: unbeatable views of vibrant Monterey Bay. A 2019 renovation brings the ocean indoors with a soothing color palette, an overhaul of the treatment menu and a glowing salt chamber, resulting in even more luxurious ways to unwind.

With the waves outside as a permanent soundtrack, the bayside spa is a tranquil haven where nine sumptuous treatment rooms set the scene for ocean-inspired services designed to lull you into a well-deserved state of Zen. And with attentive service to match, Vista Blue Spa ticks all the right boxes for an escape to coastal serenity.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Whether checking in for a massage or a full day of relaxation, be sure to spend some time on Vista Blue Spa’s rooftop terrace. Two warm whirlpools and dozens of deckchairs offer unparalleled views of Monterey Bay along with kayakers and otters traversing the waters.
  • Even in winter, the outdoor sundeck is a prime place to unwind. A roaring fireplace heats things up, while a light spa menu offers post-pampering sustenance.
  • The spa’s calming design takes cues from the Pacific Ocean with chic gray walls, rich navy fabrics and sea-inspired artworks often featuring native seaweed and coral specimens.
  • For the ultimate romantic getaway, book an afternoon of pampering in the couples bath suite. Side-by-side deep-soaking tubs overlooking the waves, a large rainfall shower with room for two, a private balcony and an indoor fireplace are sure to ignite a few flames.
  • Luxurious treatments feature a blend of high-tech and sustainable products from brands like Circadia by Dr. Pugliese and Italian skincare line Comfort Zone.

The Treatments

  • One of Visa Blue Spa’s most popular treatments, the aptly named Destress Massage kicks off with a generous application of Bagni Di Pisa Mud from sustainably minded skincare brand Comfort Zone followed by a deep massage featuring D-Age Cream.
  • The Monterey spa provides numerous bath enhancements, including coconut milk, Himalayan salt and aromatherapy.
  • Before your next big night out, opt for the Excellence Code facial. A bio-cellulose mask and an energizing serum promise to reduce wrinkles and support the building of collagen for a more defined facial contour without heavy makeup.
