After a long, miserable, and snowy winter, we are finally seeing signs of spring in New York City. It’s been sunny and above 50 degrees for the past few days, and I’ve definitely got spring fever. So have the folks at The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn. They’re getting spa-goers into the spirit of the season with a selection of springtime specials.
The Spring Spa & Lunch Package ($140 Monday-Thursday; $160 Friday-Sunday) helps spa-goers shed their winter skincare woes with a 50-Minute Facial or Massage, a Detoxifying Back Masque, and a scrumptious Spa Lunch. They’ve also unveiled their springtime Made Fresh Daily ($150, 80 minutes) experience, which is available through March 31. The Avocado & Rosemary session includes a scrub, wrap, and massage using ingredients culled from the region. The spa is also bringing back its Sample the Spa event, which occurs several Sunday afternoons in April and May. For just $99, guests can partake in three 15-minute spa treatments that are each paired with a flirty springtime beverage.
Rancho Bernardo isn’t the only spa offering springtime specials. We’ve highlighted some spectacular spring-inspired treatments in our April issue, so be sure to check out the In Touch Menu section for a selection of tantalizing treatments.
