Spa at The Del
Just stepping inside the famous Hotel Del Coronado is like taking a deep, relaxing breath, but the beachfront spa is second to none. Hearing the Pacific tide roll in as you get rubbed down is just pure heaven! And if you've taken in too much sun (we've all been guilty on this front a time or two), they have an amazing Sunburn Relief treatment packed with aloe and Hawaiian Noni.
Spa at The Del, 1500 Orange Avenue (between Glorietta Boulevard and Adella Avenue); 619-522-8100.
Right in the middle of the Columbia and Little Italy districts of downtown SD, this spa is a sanctuary close to many hotels. With Swiss showers, a steam room, and a lounge comfy enough to hole up in all day, Spa Veila is rejuvenation incarnate. Did we mention it's the city's #1 Gold LEED Certified Building? Pretty cool that they don't just care about your well-being, but Mother Earth's, too.
Spa Velia, 401 West B Street Suite 180 (on the corner of State Street); 619-235-0000.
Aqua Day Spa
This Korean-style spa stays open until 11 at night, perfect for an entire evening of hanging in their steam room, red clay sauna, and hot and cold jacuzzis. Our pick on their vast menu is the Purification Body Scrub and Oil Massage, which is the perfect mix of rough exfoliation followed by soothing strokes.
Aqua Day Spa, 4637 Convoy Street Suite 105 (near Opportunity Road); 858-279-8889.
Urban Calm Organic Spa
This urban retreat specializes in old and new beauty tricks including the recent rave: Revitalight Therapy, which eases up those deeper wrinkles. We say stick with the Seaweed Facial, though, for 90 minutes of hydration and aquatic mineral pampering.
Urban Calm Organic Spa, 726 Ninth Avenue (between F and G streets); 619-236-1395.
