The elegant décor and hi-tech treatments make this one of San Francisco's top spas.
Facial services shine bright at this Marina retreat housed in a charming, renovated Victorian. The expanded lobby's rustic hardwood floors, custom-designed light fixtures and original artwork from nearby Dolby Chadwick Gallery draw upon the building's historic interiors. Each of the 10 treatment rooms, which feature specially crafted, ergonomic, heated beds made in France, were redesigned with inscriptions on the doors of inspiring quotes from well-known fearless females. This focus isn't surprising considering that the spa is helmed by the famed mother-daughter skincare team of Galina Rovner and Angelina Umanksy, who have been in business since the '70s. Their treatments combine Old World European remedies with cutting-edge skin brightening and tightening technology, such as NASA-developed LED light therapy. For an extra boost, indulge in a Swiss Oxygen 52 Vitamin Facial ($140, 60 minutes). It features infusing multivitamins that penetrate deep into the skin using pure oxygen after a thorough cleanse and extractions. The hydrating facial provides a pretty payoff to your investment.
