The beachfront Aquaterra Spa at Surf & Sand Resort is a tranquil oasis. With an emphasis on oceanic properties, the spa features an indoor lounge and treatment rooms, private outdoor relaxation areas and soothing water features. The California coast inspires Aquaterra’s selection of natural beauty and skin care treatments that embody the natural elements of ocean and earth.
The award-winning Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn features an outdoor spa garden and patio area with treatment casitas in which guests can receive treatments outdoors. A saline Spa Pool is adjacent to the garden area and features seven cabanas for relaxation. In 2008, readers of Condé Nast Traveler voted it the best resort spa in North America.
The spas at both properties offer an extensive array of massages, facials, and body treatments. Guests can select from rejuvenating spa treatments such as deep tissue massage, holistic massage, hot stone massage, the Made-to-Order facial, and paraffin treatments, to name a few. They also offer seasonal Made Fresh Daily spa treatments that incorporate specially selected scents and ingredients that complement the seasons of the year. Each Made Fresh Daily experience includes a body wrap, scrub and massage as well as a food and beverage offering and a take home recipe to recreate the spa experience at home.
