Or maybe LED light therapy or a couples massage in a Malibu vineyard is more your thing. Whatever it is you seek, we've got you covered with our pick of the best spas in Los Angeles, from Beverly Hills to Brentwood.

The legendary “Pink Palace” on Sunset Blvd. has a chic yet low-key spa designed by renowned Alexandra Champalimaud.

So if you've ever had your boobs squished while laying on your stomach during that all important back massage, this table makes a space there for comfort.

Simply put, we've never experienced a massage quite like Surya's Signature Abhyanga “four-handed” treatment before or since. The 60-minute massage involves not one, but two masseuses, who work in tandem to release any aches from your muscles and joints. Afterwards, you're bathed in the glow of chakra-balancing crystal lights and guided through a deep meditation, and just as you're about to float into another dimension, the session ends with Shirodhara, a traditional Aryuvedic healing treatment where a stream of warm oil is drizzled gently over your forehead until your mind melts into a puddle of bliss. In addition to the therapeutic massages, you can also book sound bath therapy and pre- and post-natal treatments.

Other treatment options include the Garden Zen Body Renewal Treatment, Marine Algae Body Detox Treatment, Toning and Firming Body Sculpt Treatment, MBR Gentleman’s Facial, and re-emergence of MBR Liquid Surgery Facial so every body part is covered.

  • Pricing: foot soak and neck massage start at $ 85; hot-cold therapy treatments from $85

Tucked away behind Den Mother’s front porch and Zen crystal shop on Abbot Kinney Blvd, lies a back garden oasis for an outdoor coconut milk foot soak and neck massage. In this serene spot you will also find a cold plunge and cedar sauna for hot-cold Scandinavian therapy which all the rage in LA right now. There are also a handful of private in-door treatment rooms for full-body massage, and if you want to add acupuncture or reflexology, no problem, this spot is rooted in traditional Chinese Medicine rituals. What’s even better is you can linger before or after in the back by the elixir tea bar or out front with an added parquet dining area that serves a plant-based menu by The Butcher’s Daughter next door. If you need something stronger than tea or matcha, Japanese sake, beer, whiskey and natural wines are also on the menu. For a nibble, don’t miss the house-made potato chips with wasabi avocado aioli dip topped with Furikake seasoning.

Best Spas in Los Angeles IntoMeSea
Wonho Frank Lee - Simplify your life

14. IntoMeSea

  • Location: Santa Monica
  • Best for: floatation tank
  • Pricing: salt chambers start at $33; floatation suits start at $88

David Hertz is the award-winning environmental architect and developer of the SkySource skywater machine, a contraption that creates up to 300 gallons of water from the atmosphere per day. One of these machines was installed in IntoMeSea to provide filtered water throughout the building. The first order of business is to disconnect with Flotation Meditation (what used to be known as a sensory deprivation tank) in one of the three private suites with tanks filled with skin temperature, Epsom salt rich water (the tanks boast more salt than the Dead Sea!). They also have a ‘soak’ option with hand carved white quartz crystal soaking tubs for intention setting and energetic healing. Feeling blue? Try light therapy with Lucia N°03 Lights featuring sequenced flashing white lights accompanied by solfeggio tones or a personally chosen soundtrack in order to induce a hypnagogic state in the brain between wakefulness and sleep. The end result is a state of joy, compassion and inner peace. For the finale, go sweat in the Infrared Sauna or hit the salt chamber.

Best Spas in Los Angeles Tomoko Spa
Lexus Gallegos

15. Tomoko Spa

  • Location: Beverly Hills
  • Best for: a Japanese spa experience
  • Pricing: massages start at $350; couples treatments begin at $1,000

Completely under the radar, yet off a bustling Beverly Hills Street, Tomoko Spa feels like you are at a Ryokan in Japan right down to the no shoes policy and Zen vibe. Fans include Gwyneth Paltrow to Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore, after all. The gracious staff pour ginger tea from a traditional iron Japanese tea pot in the waiting room – but you will have tea at every step of the way, before, during and after your treatment which starts with an elaborate foot soak and a massage that hits all the right pressure points. We recommend booking the full-body “Japanese Experience” couples massage with a hot stone sake enhancement that will leave you feeling completely relaxed before the deep wooden tub soak at the end, followed by a delicate sushi meal in your robe.

the bamford wellness spa lobby

16. Bamford Wellness Spa

  • Location: West Hollywood
  • Best for: U.K. Import
  • Pricing: sound bath therapy starts at $295; Red Carpet facial $525

Located in the 1 Hotel West Hollywood, this holistic concept was originally developed by U.K. wellness guru Carole Bamford in the English countryside. The spa is devoted to nurturing the mind, body and spirit via a heartfelt connection with nature, which you feel from the moment you walk into the hotel lobby with neutral linen sofas, natural woods and plants as the focal décor. The five treatment rooms use exclusive products from the Bamford body and skincare lines featuring natural and organic certified ingredients. The signature treatments begin with an Epsom salt food bath, and use targeted ancient techniques, such as a cold pink Himalayan stone, to address skin health and relax the mind from the outside.  The Red Carpet facial combines cryo-therapy with a Gua Sha jade tool to support lymphatic flow, reduced puffiness and sculpt so you can hit those angles in your IG stories. You can add enhancements from a Knesko collagen gel mask and redlight therapy if you choose but whatever you do, enjoy the infrared pulsed electromagnetic mats, which you can lie on during a treatment, to reduce stress and sleep like a baby. When you are done, grab a healthy smoothie and relax out by the foliage-lined Pool Lounge nearby to soak up a bit more sun and nature.

Spa Calamigos

17.  Spa Calamigos

  • Location: Malibu
  • Best for: a massage in nature
  • Pricing: reiki $205; In the Wild Massage starts at $250

Tucked away in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu, the rustic-chic Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club hotel is famous for weddings and top filming locations (remember The Biggest Loser?) With a large pool and several dining options on the grounds, you might not realize there is an impressive spa in the back beyond the old archery lawn. This is a true mind, body and soul escape offering reiki healing sessions and a state-of-the art HydraFacial machine, but the showstopper is an “in the wild’ outdoor massage (be sure to add CBD enhancement) amid the rolling vineyards. And, in case you were wondering, Malibu produces some pretty good wines too. Another perk, after your treatments, is that you can take the free-shuttle down to the hotels’ beach club on the sand and even non-guests can buy a day pass.
