Romantic Spa Getaways for Two

There’s still time to book a spa weekend in honor of the day of love!

Valentine’s Day is extra special this year, because it just so happens to fall at the start of a long weekend—(for most), with Monday being President’s Day.  The big day is sneaking up on us—it’s already next Friday, but that still leaves you just enough time to surprise your sweetie with a romantic weekend getaway. Jet set to Arizona, California or even Rhode Island for a relaxing weekend and a celebration the two of you will never forget.

To spice up your escape even more, throw a little spa into the mix. To help you get planning (hey, we’ve already acknowledged the time crunch here), we’ve rounded up all of our gorgeous hotel spas that are offering SPA DEALS this month. It’s the perfect opportunity for you and your honey to sneak away for a long, relaxing, love-filled Valentine’s weekend!

Spa Spotlight: Faina European Spa

16 different types of facials and more are offered at Faina European Spa.


For 25 years, Faina European Spa in New York City has helped New Yorkers look their absolute best. The spa offers massages, microdermabrasion, manicures, pedicures, face treatments, body treatments (wraps and scrubs) and of course, facials. 16 different types of facials as a matter of fact.

There’s everything from a Collegen-02 facial to an age-defying facial and yes, even a chocolate spa facial. Time Out New York stated that Faina’s was “One of TONY’s favorite escapes.” New York magazine agrees, “…A unique dash of old-world charm and a no-nonsense approach to beauty, and you have a day spa experience you’ll never forget.” Vogue weighed in and said, “Faina’s facials are known city-wide; she will unclog your pores, get rid of surface dirt and dead cells, and restore a healthy, youthful glow to your complexion.”

Extreme Bride Weight Loss

Bikini in action

Of course every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. There’s the standing up in front of all your family and friends in white, the photo evidence that may outlive your marriage and that dream dress that you just HAVE to fit into which you may have optimistically ordered a size (or two) too small. But how far would you go to make it fit?

You’ve heard of cleanses and detoxes, but by way of a feeding tube? The New York Times recently released an article featuring a relatively unknown and controversial new weight loss plan that brides-to-be are choking down. The diet uses a tube that goes through the nose and down the esophagus into the stomach to provide all nourishment, with no carbohydrates, for 10 days, supplying around 800 calories a day. Body weight is lost quickly, at times alarmingly quickly, through ketosis, the state in which the body burns fat rather than sugar.

While the side effect may be weight loss, a lot of other side effects come with a diet this extreme. “Any extreme low-calorie diet is associated with side effects, kidney stones, dehydration, headaches,” said Dr. Louis Aronne, the director of the Comprehensive Weight Control Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. “If you lose muscle mass and water, what’s the point of that?”

This bridal accessory costs $1,500 for 10 days, which includes a screening and the equipment. There’s also the price of having to wear the tube in public. We think that trying on your final fitting with a tube down your nose seems unpleasant and won’t warrant the same joyful tears you would hope for.


For women looking for a healthier quick slim down try the following #50dollartreatments that won’t leave your bridal party questioning your mental state.

Everything Seaweed Spa Week Treatments

Seaweed is one of the most sought after spa treatment ingredients for many reasons. Not only does it cleanse your skin and leave you glowing like a light bulb, it’s also beneficial to your health. This Top Treatment Trend contains Alga polyphenols and Carotenoids which are both strong anti-oxidants. The plant is also rich in minerals, amino acids and vitamins. One of the major perks of seaweed is that it’s highly anti-bacterial and rids the skin of acne toxins. Seaweed-infused treatments like body wraps and and facials can ease pains like arthiritis, detoxify the body and improve circulation, all while firming and smoothing the skin.

You’ve got the beauty and health facts, now book your seaweed spa treatment for $50. (West Coast/Chicago until tomorrow, everywhere else Oct 11-17). We’ve highlighted a few of the treatments below but click here to view more options in your area.
