We always like to hear about spa treatments that are a little different, like reiki on horseback, or getting tapped with wooden pegs. The spa at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills offers some interesting treatments, too, like a Biomeditation Therapy meant to remove energy blockages. And for Valentine's Day, they're introducing another.
Their couples' Spellbound Massage, available only February 14–17, uses products containing pheromones—those naturally occurring chemicals that are elemental in occurrences of natural "chemistry."
It's $175–$250 for the 60- or 90-minute versions; on V-Day itself you and your partner can even opt to have the treatment in a "Valentine Suite" decked out with (what else?) candles, rose petals, soft music, and chocolate truffles.
From the spa it's just a few steps to the hotel's fantastic restaurant, Culina, Modern Italian for the special four-course menu ($85 per person) featuring oysters and lobster. (Look for Larry Flint—he's a regular). And from there, of course, you're just steps away from the spacious rooms upstairs overlooking the City of Angels.
