A special spa experience in San Deigo
Looking west, head to the coast just above San Diego for a new look at old La Costa.
The La Costa Resort and Spa might be credited with starting the spa craze back in 1965. It was the first U.S. resort with a full-service spa and suddenly women were joining their husbands on their “boys weekend” golf getaways for some no-nonsense muscle pounding within a setting of Italian statuary, water features and flowing artificial grapevines.
Today, La Costa is still a place where couples can come together and find their own happy place. Much has changed since the days of the boys club and ladies’ lunches but you and your lover may find your personal escape in the new La Costa style.
Getting to know the modernized version of this historic spa
Today, the prestige golf tours remain but spa has undergone a minimalist transformation. Gone are the treatment stalls and floral cascades and in are the stress-busting 28,000-square-foot Spa at La Costa.
The Spa is an homage to feng shui with an indoor/outdoor waiting lounge that opens onto gardens, a health-focused café, and an adults swimming pool with Roman waterfalls to beat into submission any aches or shoulder cramps a treatment may have missed.
The spa’s 42 private treatment rooms include two coupling lairs or uberluxe VIP suites.
The spa menu offers everything you would expect from a luxury destination spa. The Coastal Stone hot and cool stone massage using the geology of the Pacific Coast; or the signature La Costa Custom employing a blend of techniques and oils customized to the body’s needs. Of course there are also cutting edge body cleanses and a more traditional salon to see to your beauty needs as well.
Are La Costa’s rooms inviting for romance?
The rooms at the La Costa Resort and Spa are spacious (starting at $250/night, on average), now with a Spanish colonial core and upgraded with sleek and comfortable furnishings. They don’t scream sexy boudoir but there’s nothing to distract from your lover’s needs either.
The ocean’s edge lies minutes away, walk able, uncrowded, necessary. A resort shuttle makes the rounds frequently.
San Diego, too, is a short roll down the freeway. But La Costa leaves little to the wanting – except more time.
