Valentine’s Day Means Spa Time
Here’s a list of some sexy, soothing pampering packages at local spas:
Alderbrook, a stunningly relaxing spot on Hood Canal, is offering several romantic spa treatments, available throughout the whole month of February. The Besos is a 60-minute cocoa-infused exfoliating rub for two that leaves your skin glowing and soft ($105 per person); The Cupid’s Bow is a longer experience consisting of an aromatherapy bath for two, a 90-minute couples massage, 30-minutes of reflexology and a bottle of red wine to share ($305 per person) and Honey with my Honey (available February 14 through 18 only), a honey-infused skin treatment for two followed by a milk and honey moisturizing bath and finished with a shea butter relaxation massage ($600 total), a two and a half hour indulgence that will leave your skin ready for some major Valentine’s Day action.
If an in-city spa day is more your speed, head to Elaia spa at the Hyatt Olive 8 for The Lover’s Escape, a 60-minute couple’s massage complete with sparkling wine and truffles ($260) or For Your Love, a pampering solo escape with a 90-minute massage followed by a 90-minute facial and ending with lunch at Urbane and a glass of bubbly ($270). Sometimes, especially for busy moms, time alone at the spa is just what the doctor of love ordered.
