Spend Valentine’s Day on a sensual spa date for two with these ultra relaxing experiences. You can choose to spend one to four hours indulging in luxury on Valentine’s Day. Who needs a fancy dinner when you can spend quality time together on your own private getaway?
Lush Spa is one of my favorite places to go if I really want to feel Zen when I leave. It is not your average spa with a locker room, shower and amenities, but you won’t miss any of these because they get right to business. For a really different, but incredibly soothing and relaxing experience, try one of Lush Spa’s new treatments called Hard Days Night. For any Beatles music fans this is a must do, as it includes a soundtrack of reworked Beatles songs. This is also the first fully clothed spa treatment that I ever experienced, but it’s so relaxing. Put on some fluffy soft cotton pajamas and prepare to have your Hard Days Night turn into a sunny day.
Designed to restore and refresh you, this treatment uses innovative passive stretching techniques and pressure points throughout the body. Your masseuse will stretch and knead your tired limbs into putty by the end of this 75-minute experience. When it’s over you both will sit down for some tea and cookies, and receive a Golden Slumbers Bath Bomb sealed in a colorful bag that says, “Let It Be.” I can’t say too much about this treatment or it will spoil the surprises. Take my word for it that this is a very unique experience.

The new location of Haven Spa has a great Valentine’s Day special called 4 Two. You get 60-minute couples massages and side-by-side chocolate pedicures with this treatment during the month of February. A visit to the new Haven Spa is worth it for the décor as well, which is plush and modern, with soothing mauve, lilac and silver gray tones. I wanted to linger well beyond my treatment just to soak in the atmosphere. Include this escape for Valentine’s Day, or book any time this month to extend the love.
