If you love a deep-tissue massage as much as we do, you’re in for a treat. San Diego is home to a myriad of exceptional day spas, including several on Coronado Island. Better still, many area resorts (Coronado Bay Resort included) have saunas, so you can relax and detox even on your “days off” from the spa.
But if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, consider one of the uncommon spa treatments on our list below. Each one is sure to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated while giving you a unique San Diego experience you’ll never forget.
- Watsu. Designed for deep relaxation, Watsu combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance—all performed by an experienced therapist while you float in body-temperature water. Loews Coronado Bay is the perfect place to try Watsu. Their outdoor therapy pool is located in a serene courtyard, and guests of the Coronado Bay Resort receive a discount on all spa packages.
- Alkaline Carbonated Mineral Baths. Built over a natural spring, the Carlsbad Mineral Water Spa offers something that few spas can—a soak in naturally carbonated alkaline mineral water, pumped especially for you. The water eases stiff joints and muscles, recharges the body with important minerals and leaves skin feeling silky soft. Carlsbad is located about an hour north of Coronado Island and makes for a fun day trip.
- That’s S’moré. What’s more romantic than a couples massage? One that ends in a private beach bonfire with s’mores, champagne, and spectacular views of the Pacific. You’ll find this indulgent package only at the Hotel Del Coronado, which is located right across the street from Coronado Beach Resort.
- High Tide Hydration. Don’t let a sun burn stop you from enjoying a spa day, especially when the Villa L’Auberge in Del Mar has a treatment just for you. High Tide Hydration includes a hydrating body wrap with plant and fruit exacts that soothes and hydrates damaged skin.
