Spa and beauty
Overlooking fragrant rose gardens and the tranquil Pacific, the Spa offers a relaxing retreat for the bride-to-be and her entourage or a romantic reward for the newlywed couple. Treatments draw on the region's native botanical ingredients to rejuvenate or calm the senses and can be enjoyed in one of 11 treatment rooms. Of these, four are deluxe private suites, each complete with a warming fireplace and a balcony with ocean views.
Packages are available for the bridal party or mother and daughter in the Spa, while groomsmen can take advantage of the Spa to prepare for the celebration with a specialized men's facial, cleansing treatment or massage.
Couples can enjoy lunch and signature treatments in the split-level master spa suite, which features a full ocean-view terrace and a chromatherapy tub. Select packages offer a full day of pampering, best enjoyed after family and friends have departed. A catered dinner with wine served in the suite is a romantic way to end the celebration.
