Fort Lauderdale and Santa Barbara Top-Rated Spas for Couples
Stress is simply a fact of life. It may also affect relationships from time to time. Couples need to unplug from the fast-paced world every once in a while to get away from it all and reconnect with themselves and with each other. Anxiety and disquiet can be disjointing and can put a strain on romantic relationships.
One of the best ways of eliminating tension in a relationship is by spending precious time together on a priceless getaway. During a holiday, there is nothing better for rest, relaxation and reconnection than sharing time at a luxurious spa. Two destinations offering some of the most elite spa experiences are Fort Lauderdale and Santa Barbara.
We have highlighted some of the most sumptuous spas in these two cities that will provide sustenance for your souls as well as for your bodies and could bring you to an even deeper level of intimacy.
Fort Lauderdale Spas
The concept behind Pure Spa originates from the Swedish-owned Pelican Grand Beach Resort and the dream of bringing the exotic Scandinavian feeling of well-being to Fort Lauderdale. This spa is all about telling a story, creating valuable memories and disconnecting from reality for a while. Hanging chairs, ocean views and lavish décor will leave you floating in relaxation. This spa offers a full range of services.
We recommend: The Pure Romance package. Includes a Microsilk couple’s bath experience, an 80-minute couple’s massage overlooking the waves of the Atlantic Ocean and a bottle of champagne to enjoy in private with your special someone.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa
This upscale spa has taken inspiration from its oceanic surroundings, pulling from nature to offer luxurious spa treatments. Specialties include using the power of citrus to rebalance, detoxify and cleanse. This full-service spa includes a hair and nail salon and boutique where you can purchase elite items to continue the experience at home.
We recommend: The Venture Together option. Choose any spa services with a glass of champagne and an upgrade in services. Have a soothing massage and perhaps manicures.
The Grand and Contemporary Villa Lillian
A deliciously stunning place to stay in Fort Lauderdale for a romantic getaway should be private, serene, yet expansive and Villa Lillian fits the bill. This enchanting waterfront home boasts vast inter-coastal views with 120 feet of water frontage. Indoor and outdoor spaces are equally grand. You can enjoy your favorite beverage around the pool facing the water. The dock is equipped and ready for a super yacht. Inside is swimming with natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Spa at Auberge Beach
Therapists perform indulgent body therapies indoors or at oceanfront garden cabanas at this luxury spa. Elements of the sea, salt, sand, and sound flow abundantly at the new Spa at Auberge Beach, where a sense of “vitality revived” is at the heart of each wellness treatment. Here, indigenous ingredients, tropical elements, and results-driven rituals come together alongside pristine beach views.
We recommend: The Couple’s Harmony Massage. Experience a mellifluous massage together in a room for two. Your choice of pressure from light to deep. Essential oil, warm Himalayan salt stones on the back, and layers of aromatherapy complete this bonding experience for two.
