The best spas in Southern California

I am ALWAYS up for a great spa day!! Make it a day with friends. Treat yourself to a massage, and great amenities after that to relax the day away. I have visited several spas in Southern California and anxiously waiting to try some more. I have come up with a list of the best spas in Southern California for you to refer to the next time you’re ready to relax!! (originally published 4/17, affiliate links present)

Spas in Southern California

Like I said, spa days are the BEST!!

There are so many great ones throughout Southern California, and some you may not have heard of yet….til now!!

If you’re looking for a great deal for a spa day you can take advantage of these spa deals available on an ongoing basis.

What to bring with you to the spa

  1. Robe – if you aren’t keen on wearing community robes you might want to bring your own, this is my favorite robe
  2. Makeup – if you’re going for a massage or facial you’re going to want a shower after that so if you’re going out after you might want to bring what you need to get ready
  3. Sunglasses – if the Southern California spa you’re visiting has an outdoor area (like South Coast or Glen Ivy) you’ll want sunglasses if you’re visiting during the day
  4. Money – I usually just bring 1 credit card and my ID in a small change purse to stick in my locker
  5. Bathing suit – most spas have great jacuzzis you will want to enjoy, do NOT bring one you absolutely love if there’s a mud area like Glen Ivy.

The light colors will turn dark brown or a red brown color and there is NO way you will be able to get it out.
