Nestled in the hills of California, the Hotel Bel-Air Spa by La Prairie is the perfect answer to what it means to relax. With acres of beautiful woods, this luxury spa offers a peaceful experience to help you get away from the busy LA scene.
Right off the bat, as you walk in, you’re welcomed with lily pad sculptures and hand painted flowers on the walls of the Relaxation lounge. You get to relax with healthy snacks like handcrafted organic granola bowls and delicious drinks, like their original Swan Song tea.
Then, for a little more privacy, the spa offers what they call The Enclave. It’s a actually a large private suite with your own patio and stunning waterfall for the ultimate pampering session.
Besides the lounging area the spa also features seven treatment rooms. One of their top rooms is the private nail salon, a chic facility with individual mani/pedi stations. The locker area is actually multiple rooms that have lovely artwork displayed, personal lockers and then male and female steam rooms, from which you can unwind and take in the ambiance.
When it comes to the actual treatment, you’re in for a treat. Their “Top Picks” include their Signature Valmont Facial. They use Valmont’s collagen mask for your face and neck, combined with what is described as “LED and micro-current technology” which actually lifts and defines the face. The treatment wraps up with a hand and foot massage,using deeply hydrating oils.
You can opt for their regular procedures or one of their four wine-based therapies. This technique is called vinotherapy and the wine-based treatments are as beneficial as they are indulgent!
Infuse wine into manicures and pedicures, body scrub and facials — the liquor options range from Pinot Noir to the Estancia Vinomassage.
The Bel-Air Signature Massage is a much-needed opportunity to lay back, drift off and get some of those deep knots out of the body. The massage uses a combination of Swedish and deep tissue techniques to help release the tension and relax muscles.
The Hotel Bel-Air Spa by La Prairie is a perfect mid-week holiday. We might not realize this while we’re busy handling our everyday life, but every once in a while our bodies need to unwind and going to this soothing spa provides a chance to take time for myself. Their beautiful 12-acre garden is the perfect place to go and relax.
