As far as hotel spas in the Greater L.A. Metro area go, this luxurious establishment belongs to the cream of the crop. The environs are hushed and posh at the 11,000-square-foot spa retreat of Chuan Spa at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena. Offering thirteen rooms, including a couples suite, the elegant spa's pièce de résistance is the Chuan Body + Soul corridor, featuring treatments based on traditional Chinese medicine such as the “Tao of Detox” (exfoliation, algae wrap, acupressure massage and facial). While the spa’s extensive menu boasts facials, peels, microdermabrasion, manis, pedis, hair services and more, we recommend booking one of the unique and healing Chuan Body + Soul therapies; especially considering that The Huntington Spa is only one of two hotel spas in the entire U.S. to offer these. Arrive early and linger in the whirlpool, sauna and steam room prior to your appointment. Of course, rather than heading back out into LA traffic, the cherry to top your easy afternoon would be heading straight to your luxurious suite and ordering room service! So go ahead and splurge!
