Just off Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, this spacious spa offers Old World elegance with a modern touch just blocks from the beach. At over 21,000 square feet, the Westside retreat is Burke Williams' largest outpost and offers additional amenities not found in other locations, such as private locker rooms for male and female guests and two whirlpools in the women's spa — one for quiet socializing and one Zen spa meant for silent contemplation. The luxurious spa's full menu focuses on ancient healing techniques melded with contemporary methods for a results-driven yet soothing and holistic experience. You will also find a sauna, solarium and delicious treats such as mini strawberry smoothies and nibbles of fresh fruit. A variety of massages, as well as manis and pedis, are supplemented by a selection of Burke Williams signature treatments, including the fantastic Anti-Aging facial, a must-try regimen where you will experience actual stem cells blasted onto your skin, a refreshing, cooling and totally unique sensation. We also love the divine-smelling Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Mask. A bonus: this facial gets better with age! Days later, our skin looked even more even, bright and luxuriously nourished.
