Sometimes a girl needs a little staycation. Something with a spa. Somewhere not too-too far. Relaxing. Indulgent.
I had the perfect staycation this month at the Four Seasons Westlake Village. A gorgeous property that truthfully seems a little out of sorts in this particular location… but with a golf course could easily become a destination spot.
Less than an hour from West Hollywood, I highly recommend making the drive for a quick overnight. The deep marble 2-person tub alone is worth the trip. Just BYO bubble bath. Or request their intoxicating what-I-can-only-guess-is lemongrass-scented bath cubes.
Make sure to visit the pool, too. Once you make your way through the spa maze, it’s well worth reserving a cabana if you can swing it. Lovely spacious patios surround the pool, fully equipped with daybed, chaise lounges, television, ceiling fan & storage space. You can easily make a day of it out there.
I however had a spa and salon to visit. If you book a treatment, make sure to leave time to experience the spa amenities. Especially the sauna. It’s huge. Two rooms! I actually wasn’t counting the minutes ‘til I could bolt for the steam room. If you’re concerned about losing tone or firmness in your face, treat yourself to the Swift Lift Firming Facial. It’s as effective as it is relaxing—and they’ll do extractions if you want. Yes please.
The hotel is also home to the award-winning California Health & Longevity Institute — a facility with onsite doctors and specialists to help guests achieve individual wellness and total body rejuvenation.
Recently taken over by the Four Seasons, the new Rhythm & Hair salon is modern beauty convenience at its best. Grab a cut, blowout, manicure… it’s all at your fingertips. Heh heh, punny. The stylists use some of my favorite Oribe products, and there’s even a special barber-esque area just for men.
Before I knew it, it was time to return to the real world. Perhaps the time I plan a staycation, I’ll plan to stay a little longer.
