No matter how you celebrate Valentine’s Day or who you choose to spend it with, everyone should take a day for some pampering. Plenty of places in San Diego are offering luxurious packages to make you or your sweetheart feel special.

  • As an ode to the sadly missed “Sex and the City,” Kin Spa at Manchester Grand Hyatt offers its Carrie and Mr. Big Couples Massage. The 50-minute massage for two includes two complimentary cocktails while taking in the beautiful view from the top of the Hyatt.
  • Spa at Rancho Bernardo is offering a couple of sweet-sounding spa splurges. The Chocolate Lovers Treatment is a decadent 80-minute session that includes a chocolate chip scrub, chocolate wrap, and chocolate massage while being served a glass of champagne and a chocolate sweet treat. Guests can also choose the Heavenly Meltdown Pedicure which involves a butter brulee milk soak, sweet cream salt scrub, sundae best chocolate softening mask, and sweet cream body milk lotion. Such a sweet treat for the feet!
  • Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa's Ocean Crest Spa offers a Valentine’s Day Couples package that includes their special merlot scrub pedicure for two in a private setting while enjoying a glass of wine. You can also schedule a Spa Package for Her which includes a full dry body brush followed by a chocolate wrap and a Osea slow aging facial. After that, ladies enjoy a chocolate pedicure that uses a crystal scrub followed by a chocolate mask and foot and leg massage. All of which is enjoyed while sipping champagne and eating chocolate covered strawberries. But don't worry, guys aren't left out. They can enjoy the Spa Package for Him which includes a 50-minute aromatherapy massage followed by an Exclusive Om4men Facial (customized for each person’s skin type). Following this is a chocolate pedicure, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.
  • Since Valentine’s Day lands on a Friday this year, plan a staycation at THE US GRANT HOTEL and enjoy specially-planned offerings such as a one-hour massage class for couples and a couples spa gift of massage oil, bath salts, and aromatherapy candles. There is a four-day advance purchase required.

Sweet deals in San Diego sounds like a great way to celebrate this Valentine's Day! Have a favorite splurge-worthy spot? I'd love to hear from you!
