Vi La Vita Spa is located at the Vintners Resort in Santa Rosa. Begin your visit with time in the steam sauna to open your pores and clear your mind before finding your way to the relaxation lounge to prepare for your treatment. The serene spa features all of the traditional services like aromatherapy massages, body scrubs, and rejuvenating facials, but they also offer intriguing add-ons to these treatments like a lavender foot massage. The spa offers blissful couples packages that allow you to relax on a private patio with a glass of wine post treatment, but also is ready to host groups for private experiences so you can all celebrate together. The best part is, when your treatments are done, you can continue your rapture in the indoor Caldarium and enjoy a soak in the heated pool or catch some sun by the stunning outdoor pool.

Calm Spa makes calm a way of life. You can expect unhurried massage treatments, luxurious linens, and customized enhancements.

Try the Skin Repairing Rejuvenation Massage which uses Bindi Ayurvedic Oil to nourish and repair your skin and includes a gentle foot scrub. Or book the Cocoa Butter Bliss Body Wrap for gentle exfoliation followed by a cocoa butter massage and finished with being cocooned in a warm wrap for deep relaxation. To make your experience extra special, you can add enhancements to any treatment, such as an aromatherapy scalp massage, a dry brush treatment, or cupping.

Kenwood Inn and Spa is a dreamy Mediterranean-style hideaway in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Tucked into a hillside overlooking expansive vineyards in Kenwood, it’s the perfect place to get away from it all. For a customized experience, book the Valley of the Moon Massage where specific massage and aromatherapy oils are chosen for your needs. If you’re in desperate need of some R&R, book the Ultimate Bliss Massage, a two-hour treatment that targets problem areas and specific aches to rejuvenate your body and mind. No matter which treatment you choose, be sure to enjoy one of the three heated pools with waterfalls to top off your day of indulgence.

No trip to the gorgeous Sonoma Coast is complete without a visit to The Spa at Bodega Bay Lodge. Their soothing spa has just what your body needs for ultimate bliss, including in-room treatments if you are staying at the lodge. Situated on the coast, it’s only natural that they offer the unique Ocean Shell Therapy Massage, where the heat and cooling shells provide relief from joint and muscle pain as well as deep relaxation. Keeping with the coastal theme, the spa also features a Sea Enzyme Facial that uses a seaweed enzyme and green tea mask to detoxify the skin followed by clay from the Pacific Ocean to replenish it, and as a nod to Wine Country, there’s also a Cabernet Grape Seed Scrub to exfoliate and renew your body. For those looking to make it a full day of coastal enjoyment, the spa has multiple spa packages worth noting.

Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary
Get completely lost in a zen-like state at Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary.

When booking a spa day, sometimes you want to make it just that… a full day, and no one makes it easier to get completely lost in a zen-like state than Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary. This Japanese-inspired spa in Freestone is located on five acres of creekside property with five different Japanese gardens to explore before or after your treatments. Stroll through the meditation garden, private pagodas, field of hammocks — talk about keeping that floaty post-massage feeling going — and the Japanese tea garden where you can enjoy a traditional tea ceremony. Unique to Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary is their therapeutic Cedar Enzyme Bath. Sink into a tub of fragrant ground cedar and rice bran, along with living enzymes, that work to improve circulation, relieve muscle and joint pain, and cleanse the skin. Follow this up with a massage in one of the outdoor pagodas to really commune with nature while being treated or experience a facial with their organic, local skin products.

While The Spa is located at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort in the city of Sonoma, you need not be a guest to enjoy its amenities. Begin with a visit to the barrel sauna to open your senses. Any booking at the spa allows for access to hot tubs, soaking pools, and the option to book a private cabana in the spa garden. Visiting with a group? Book a SPA’rty and add a Champagne toast to start the day, followed by savings on various treatment add-ons. Try the Celestial Renewal Body Ritual for a blissful and transformative treatment including a body scrub, heated herbal poultices, and a CBD massage. Or book a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage for replenishing nutrients to the skin and muscle relaxation. If nothing else, be sure to pop in to their Spa Boutique to pick up some favorite local products to bring your spa experience home.
