Vista Blue Spa

Vista Blue Spa is perched atop Monterey Plaza Hotel, which is situated on the coastline of lovely Monterey, California, within walking distance of Cannery Row. Monterey Plaza Hotel guests have access to the exercise facilities and rooftop hot tubs; but the spa is open to the public, as well. Whether you’re working out on an elliptical trainer or enjoying a soak, you can watch kayakers and otters traverse the blue waters of the beautiful Monterey Bay below.

The facility, which includes saunas and steam rooms as well as a gift shop, is immaculately maintained, and service is genuine, warm and friendly. Treatment options abound; the newly opened Chioma salon in the hotel is available for après-spa hair touch-ups (by separate appointment) and wedding packages at the spa are also available.
