Posted June 18, 2009 in Feature Story

Yeah, so summer’s all about getting out and doing stuff, right? The weather’s great, the vacation time’s coming up and you’re feeling ready to recharge those batteries. But what about those of us who just want to relax and receive the much-needed pampering our faces and bodies oh-so-deserve? Fortunately, options are anything but limited in our neck of the woods, which makes finding a place to nab a nice neck massage much less of a pain in the neck!

 

HOTEL CASA 425

Housed in the western section of the Claremont Village, Hotel Casa 425 is offering a special event at its Lounge 425—Spa & Martini Tuesdays—where one can order up three different spa treatment packages, including “The Works” which pampers the hands, neck and shoulders. Add to that a host of signature martinis to sip while enjoying your spa treatment, and you’ll be hard pressed to wait six more days to indulge in another experience.

Hotel Casa 425, 425 W. First St., Claremont, (866) 450-0425; www.casa425.com. Spa treatment/martini packages: $20-$35.

With three locations convenient to just about any place in the Inland Empire, the Karen Allen Salons’ focus is on skincare, with numerous facial selections and skin treatments.

LAKE ARROWHEAD RESORT & SPA

There’s no better way for us flatlanders to augment our in-the-woods experience than by getting hooked up with spa treatments while also indulging in the terrific eye candy that is the Arrowhead wilderness, and here’s where a luxurious stop like the Lake Arrowhead Resort’s Spa of the Pines kicks in. While massages, body treatments and skincare are all part of the spa’s main event offerings—including packages for brides/grooms-to-be—added touches like private suites, yoga courses, a fitness studio with available personal trainers only buttress and better what’s already a dazzling environment.

SURREAL SALON AND DAY SPA

Feeling the need for a 35-minute mini-facial or perhaps you’re seeking to step it up with a photo facial that’ll (hopefully) make you look a bit younger? Surreal’s got these—plus a variety of massage options—covered with prices that fall in the reasonable range. The best part is that you’re able to create your own pamper-me package by combining the various choices they’ve got available.

MIRACLE SPRINGS RESORT AND SPA

Although it’s all about the water in this desert location—natural mineral water, that is—that fills up Miracle Springs’ eight pools (which equates to plenty of space for soothing dips of various temperatures), the resort also features a full service spa therapy center, including a number of facial and massage picks—also available in comprehensive packages—such as aromatherapy, deep tissue, hot stone reflexology, clay body masques, herbal linen wraps and much more.

Miracle Springs Resort and Spa, 10625 Palm Dr., Desert Hot Springs, (760) 251-6000, www.miraclesprings.com. Spa treatments/facials: $40-$345.
