We love traveling to far-flung destinations to recharge and relax. However, sometimes a local escape is more feasible for a myriad of reasons—be it our deadline demands that don’t allow time off or budget limitations. That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to check out the Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles’ Wellness Retreat at L.A. Live in Downtown L.A.
Held quarterly, it’s an amazing daycation that includes a rooftop poolside workout, a 50-minute spa treatment and a healthy (and delish!) lunch from the onsite Wolfgang Puck restaurant. After the five-hour getaway, we both felt amazing—ready to face Monday with a renewed outlook.
All equipment is provided, including cucumber-infused ice cold towels and spa water.
Caveat: Each Wellness Retreat’s theme varies. The one we went to included yoga and meditation. The one in December is fitness-oriented.
Just in time for some pre-holiday pampering, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles is hosting a Holiday Bootcamp on Sunday, December 13.
Greeted with a fresh-pressed juice, the experience begins with a high-intensity, calorie-burning workout session with National Academy of Sports Medicine certified fitness instructor Jenn Glysson. After a series of timed body weight movement circuits, a nutritious lunch awaits guests on the hotel’s rooftop pool deck, followed by an invigorating half hour stretch.
After the workout, your efforts are rewarded with a spa treatment of your choice. New wintery treatments feature ‘sugar and spice and everything nice’ include: Vanilla Chai Spice Scrub, Cinnamon Cider Facial, and the Hot Chocolate Stone massage. Our massages rocked, btw.
This is an awesome gift idea. We can’t think of better way to show some love and TLC to your honey, mom or BFF by sharing an afternoon dedicated to health and pampering.
