Where to Unwind This Holiday Season

Combat the busy season with limited-time spa services throughout the city
| Updated: November 27, 2018

It's well known that the holiday season is not only the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also the most hectic and stressful. Amid various events and commitments, it becomes all too easy to forget about the importance of self-care. Thankfully, many Seattle-area spas have taken this into consideration and are (or will soon be) offering limited-time, holiday-themed treatments (think candy cane pedicures and chocolate mousse body wraps!).

Need a warm aromatherapy bath after a long day of gift shopping? Book a Bath Butler. Are monthly facials just not cutting it? Skoah is offering a year of unlimited services. Read on for even more festive feel-good spa packages, services and treatments to ensure your holiday season is relaxing and stress-free.

Salish Lodge & Spa
Bourbon Marshmallow Body Scrub: Your body will feel smooth and buttery following this nectar, whole milk and chicory root warm compress, an exfoliation of rice bran oil, pecan-whiskey, and a warm bourbon marshmallow butter massage.
Session length: 50 minutes. Price: $125 Mondays through Thursdays; $140 Fridays through Sundays
Winter Warm-Up Massage: A butter brûlée whole milk compress envelopes and hydrates parched winter skin. After this warm start, enjoy a long massage with cinnamon-scented, antioxidant-rich olive fruit and grape seed oils. 
Session length: 50 minutes. Price: $120 Mondays through Thursdays; $135 Fridays through Sundays
Red Hot Holiday Foot Delight: This pedicure, which begins with a soothing butter brûlée whole milk bath followed by a honey-scented sea salt scrub and a massage, will make your winter skin feel anew.
Session length: 50 minutes. Price: $120 Mondays through Thursdays; $135 Fridays through Sundays

Hyatt at Olive 8 and Grand Hyatt Seattle
Downtown Seattle
Bath Butler: With the hectic holiday season approaching, both downtown Seattle Hyatt locations now offer an incredibly pampering service in which a butler draws an invigorating bath for you with your choice of scent: Madagascar vanilla and lavender with white truffle, apple blossom and kumquat with cedar honey, or frangipani and mulberry leaves with blue agave. A room reservation is required, natch.
Price: $25

Spa Noir
Winter Radiance Package: Help your skin adjust to seasonal changes with a full-body dry brush exfoliation, a 30-minute massage with rich body butter, an exfoliating facial, and a face massage and mask, which will bring the glow back to dry and scaly winter skin.
Session length: 60 minutes. Price: $98
Autumn Glow Package: For dehydrated, congested skin and those with ample tension in the neck and shoulders, this treatment will restore moisture and provide relief for tight upper body muscles. The package includes a 30-minute facial with deep cleansing, a yam-and-pumpkin enzyme peel, steam, gentle extractions, and moisturizing/clarifying masks. The second-half of the treatment consists of a 30-minute customized upper-body massage.
Session length: 60 minutes. Price: $98

Recoop Spa
All holiday services begin November 27
Dewy Goodness Facial: For a pre-holiday party polish, consider an oxygen facial, a technique that uses a wand-like device to emit more oxygen into the skin, enhancing the absorption of serums. This facial lifts, hydrates and adds radiance to dull skin via a triple layering of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in skin and used in most injectable fillers. 
Session length: 75 minutes. Price: $185
Mint Chocolate Decadence Pedicure: Your 60-minute pedicure begins with a relaxing vanilla cream aromatherapy soak. Then (after nails are trimmed, filed, and cuticles worked, of course), finishes with a mint chocolate scrub and a massage with chocolate butter cream and warm paraffin.
Session length: 60 minutes. Price: $68
Candy Cane Pedicure: This holiday-themed pedicure includes a candy cane bath bomb soak packed with nourishing Vitamin E oil and cocoa butter, nail services (trim, file, cuticle care), and a peppermint sugar scrub for your calves and tootsies. To top it all off, the beauty buffs at Recoop add in a foot massage with coconut oil before you opt for the polish of your choice.
Session length: 60 minutes. Price: $65
Chocolate Mousse Body Wrap and Pumpkin Latte Body Wrap: Experience an invigorating and exfoliating body brushing, then hydrate your skin with a pumpkin latte or slimming chocolate mousse mask. While covered in the mask of your choice, you'll be wrapped in a soft blanket and receive a face and scalp massage. End the treatment with a refreshing rain shower and body butter application.
Session length: 90 minutes. Price: $175

Capitol Hill, Downtown, Bellevue
The Big Kahuna: Jealousy-inducing recipients of this gift will recieve an entire year of unlimited Skoah facial services. Yes, this means you could visit Skoah every single day of the year (although most skin care professionals recommend sticking to once every 2-3 weeks).
Price: $2,500 
The Little Kahuna: For those who don't want to frequent the spa as often, this package includes any two facials a month for a year. Along with both Kahuna memberships, recipients will gain access to all membership benefits, including a unique members-only product each month, product discounts and the ability to bring guests for a special price.
Price: $1,500
