Top Romantic Spas in the World
Few Champagne toasts take place in more sublime settings than Montage Laguna Beach's Studio Restaurant, where the sun sets beyond the bluff on this 30-acre oceanfront estate. One venue that rivals it is within an Arts and Crafts-style beachfront bungalow (with a balcony); another is within the extraordinary VIP spa suite within the resort’s 20,000 square foot spa. This, the largest suite, is also called The Gallery and it has a fabulous outdoor garden, a soaking tub and twin tables where couples can enjoy a Togetherness Massage (and the option to switch therapists during the massage). The whirlpool within the lounge is half indoors and half outdoors in the shade of a pergola. Here, where the ocean influences many hydrotherapy treatments, there is a full fitness menu, though the stairs down the bluff to the beach might be enough for some. Nearby, there's the artsy coastal community of Laguna Beach and all of Southern California's enticements.
