Couples Spa Weekend
A couples spa weekend can be very romantic, especially when you schedule spa appointments together or take the time to do your own at-home spa treatments together. Massages are a must-have on a couples spa weekend, and the couples massage can be just what you need to relax your body and recharge your batteries.
Either person in the relationship can plan the couples spa weekend. For a special surprise, a husband or boyfriend may decide to plan this short weekend getaway as time to connect, focus on each other, and relax together. Even if the man in the relationship is not especially drawn to spa treatments and massages, he can participate minimally and then go play some golf while the woman in the relationship relaxes and enjoys all that the spa has to offer. Be sure to discuss your preferences and ideas for a spa weekend before you actually get there!
Some popular romantic spas in the United States include Royal Palms Resort & Spa in Phoenix, AZ; The Spa at The Mandarin Oriental in NYC; Calistoga Ranch in California, and Mauna Lani spa at Mauna Lani Resort in Hawaii. If you are interested in checking out these luxury spa weekend experiences, consider booking a weekend or long weekend at the resort and then scheduling your spa treatments.
