Vacation is the time to indulge, and there’s no better place to do just that than at a spa. At The Spa at Pelican Hill, guests are immersed in the ultimate best in individual care — treated to renowned global therapies containing only natural and organic products.
When guests arrive, they are transported to the Mediterranean through exotic, calming sounds and scents. There are 22 private treatment rooms designed for deep relaxation. Guests are asked to share their personal goals for their spa experience — whether that be to replenish their bodies with rejuvenating treatments, invigorate their bodies with strengthening therapies, restore balance and detoxify, energize and boost immunity or simply relax, unwind and relieve stress.
The spa offers an array of facilities including men and women’s Acqua Colonnades with herbal steam rooms, saunas, whirlpools and soaking tubs; a state-of-the-art fitness center; full-service salon; Barber Chair Lounge and boutique. Another luxury: the fact that many of the plants, herbs, extracts and botanicals used are natural, organic and locally grown in California. Many are seasonal as well, including figs in the fall, pomegranates in winter, honey in spring and lavender in summer.
With traditional rejuvenating treatments and heralded therapies from around the world, The Spa at Pelican Hill is focused on expanding the traditional definition of a “spa.” There’s a professional naturalist on staff who conducts everything from nature hikes to horticulture classes. Along with luxurious treatments, guests can take part in a variety of classes and activities such as Restorative Yoga in the Movement Studio, daily hikes along Crystal Cove’s bluff-top trails and Sunrise Boot Camp overlooking the ocean.
And for those looking to escape for more than an afternoon, the spa offers year-round Balanced Wellness Retreats with personalized one- or two-day “Build Your Own Retreats.” Focus on really slowing down and transforming your mind, body and spirit with these retreats, which include motivational interactive discussions, instructor-led exercise sessions, nutrition planning, cooking demonstrations and spa treatments.
So whether you choose a massage, a hike along the ocean or a weekend retreat, The Spa at Pelican Hill is guaranteed to transport you to relaxation, rejuvenation and peace of mind.
