Valentine’s Day used to mean chocolates, roses, and dinner out. The Big Three are still the order of the day–but the setting is a little different.
Instead of dressing up, couples are undressing and trading in their stiff date-duds for soft white robes. At Preston Wynne, guys and gals can spa together in three “Duetto” suites: massage, pedicure and sauna. Though many spas separate the sexes, Preston Wynne is one of the few facilities where couples spa together.
Couples Massage is the most-requested Valentine’s Day spa date. The Stone Rose Massage combines warm rose oil and hot stones for a soothing and nurturing experience. Opt to soak together in the Balneotherapy tub prior to your massage, and choose your “bath cure” from an array of therapeutic blends. Or relax in the spa’s Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, which provides pain relief and stress relief, not to mention an epic, detoxifying sweat. The Sauna Therapy Suite includes its own private shower, a little luxury that couples appreciate.
Try doing that in the middle of dinner out!
Follow that stress-melting sauna therapy session with “Chocolate and Roses,” the newest facial on the Preston Wynne Spa menu. No mere Valentine-themed service, this treatment employs a ridiculously delicious-smelling chocolate-and-fruit enzyme to exfoliate, and concludes with a soothing application of the spa’s new OrganiCures AcquaRose creme, which nourishes skin with organic rosewater, GLA-rich evening primrose oil and anti-oxidant packed rose hip seed oil.
The newly remodeled Duetto Pedicure Suite fulfills every woman’s fantasy: for her guy to get a pedicure. (Sandpaper soles and haphazardly-trimmed toenails just aren’t the aphrodesiac they used to be, fellas.) No roaring, vibrating, mechanical-bull pedicure “thrones” here, just two comfy recliners dim lighting, and skillful nail care specialists who graciously pretend that they can’t hear you snore.
If that’s not enough chocolate for you, the spa’s Valentines Gift Card Special is a petite box of artisanal Saratoga Chocolates with a purchase of $150 or more. Saratoga Chocolates is considered one of the top chocolatiers in the Bay Area.
During Valentine’s Weekend, from Thursday the 13th through Sunday the 16th, the spa is serving special complimentary refreshments, including sweets, fruit and cheese, and bubbly. Space is very limited, so calling for reservations is best: 408 741 5525. The spa’s helpful concierges can be contacted via e mail too: email@example.com.
