Lap of Luxury

July 7, 2014

If you ask me, vacations are the perfect time to pamper yourself. You’re already getting away from the day-to-day grind, so why not take it a step further and indulge a little at one of the area’s finest spas. Speaking of fine spas, The Resort at Pelican Hill already has Newport Beach’s only Forbes Five-Star Spa—a 23,000-square-foot retreat highlighted by 22 private treatment rooms, a regal Roman bath and more—but now the property is upping its game even more with an ultra-luxurious new Spa Suite that offers couples and small groups visiting together increased privacy for socializing or tranquility.

“The Spa at Pelican Hill welcomes many social celebrations,” says Robin Dunivin, Pelican Hill Spa Director. “Our guests love to gather in our plush lounges and enjoy treatments in our couples’ treatment rooms, so we decided to add another space where the celebration continues before, after and in between spa services.”

The Spa Suite, which made its debut in June, is specially designed for groups with up to eight guests, with custom experiences available by the hour or for a full day of bliss and pre-packaged options for girlfriends’ spa days, bridal parties, romantic couples’ retreats, and staff celebrations for work colleagues or clients (ranging from the Couples’ Suite Retreat Package, starting at $285 and featuring a 50-minute duet massage, romantic bath for two in an infinity-edge deep-soaking tub, two hours in the Spa Suite, a bottle of Prosecco, light snacks, one spa-inspired entrée each and dessert to share) to the Best Friends’ Spa Suite Package (starting at $240 and offering parties of four to eight guests a personalized 50-minute massage or facial, use of the Spa Suite for two hours, a spa cuisine lunch, and complimentary Prosecco or mimosas).

This summer, also look for seasonal treatments such as the Lavender Body Gelato (available through August), a body treatment combining fresh lavender and pure botanicals for a scrub and moisturizing wrap and completed with a lavender-flavored gelato treat; Diamond Life Infusion Facial (available July through September), an intensive 80-minute skin rejuvenation facial featuring Natura Bisse’s Diamond Life Infusion youth biomarker serum and massage techniques to restore youthful contours, improve skin texture, and lessen fine lines and wrinkles; and Sunshine Pronto Manicure & Pedicure, express treatments including a 25-minute manicure and 40-minute pedicure and complimentary glass of Prosecco or lemonade.

Treatment prices per person (excluding tax and service charge) are $155 to $200 for the Lavender Body Gelato; $250 to $300 for the Diamond Life Infusion Facial; and $125 to $135 for the Sunshine Pronto Manicure & Pedicure.
