Pamper Your Sweetie (And Yourself) With A Couple’s Spa Session

We’ve been racking our brains for man-friendly date ideas for Valentine’s Day, because, as badly as we want to, dragging the BF to the opening night of The Vow (aka The Notebook for 2012, sans Gosling) just doesn’t seem fair. At least wait for a rainy Netflix day to inflict that brand of tear-jerking torture on him, right?
Enter the clear choice to satisfy both parties: A couple’s spa sesh where you can decompress and bond while receiving a tension-melting massage — much more sensual and serene than the movie theater experience.
From Saturday, February 11, through Tuesday, February 14, Aura Spa is offering a 60-minute Aura Signature couple's massage complete with a champagne kickoff and gift bag, not to mention rose petals and candles, for $240. Single ladies, don’t fret — for $175, you can experience true indulgence with a spa sampler that treats you head-to-toe, literally: a 30-minute organic facial, 30-minute Aura Signature massage, and 30-minute foot treatment. But hey, if the massage table isn't your idea of a happy place, you can always gather up the gals for a viewing of a certain romantic cry-fest.
When: Saturday, February 11, through Tuesday, February 14.
Where: Aura Spa Renaissance, 1517 15th Street NW; 202-742-1940; Aura Spa Metropole, 999 9th Street NW (3rd floor); 202-588-5557.
