Inside the Ayres Hotel and Spa in Mission Viejo, Athena Spa is a calming oasis with large and spacious cream-colored rooms. The full-service spa upgrades traditional spa treatments with deluxe add-ons. Facials, for example, intensify with the addition of freeze-dried seaweed compresses or the rejuvenating extracts of caviar and pearls. The contents of body wraps appear to be plucked from a five-star restaurant, with ingredients such as crème fraîche, papaya, pineapple-salt mousse, and pomegranate. In their signature massage, therapists don’t restrict customers to a single style of touch, but combine several modalities, including Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue, and the grizzly-bear womp. In addition to these aesthetic treatments, an onsite yoga studio invites customers to relax from the inside out.
