Getting away from it all doesn't have to mean leaving town. Amid the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, Aroma Spa & Sports members luxuriate in spa services. Guests release stress during Swedish massages, rejuvenate their skin with body scrubs, and reduce signs of aging during facial appointments.
But the spa isn't the only thing that makes Aroma Spa & Sports stand out. In keeping with its name, the center houses fitness facilities complete with a workout studio for Pilates, spinning, and kickboxing classes. Elsewhere in the sprawling confines, a pool beckons lap swimmers and a racquetball court helps players work on their serve while quizzing each other on what a racquetball is. The center rounds out its wealth of offerings with a 150-yard golf range with automated teeing equipment available on all four levels.

The palm trees at Royal Vista Golf Club reach high in the clouds, a visual testament to the course's maturation over the past half-century. The course?a 27-hole gem framed to the south by distant mountain peaks?connects wide fairways and small greens in a landscape dotted with sand traps and water hazards. True to the area's rolling topography, many holes stretch over elevation changes that add drama to putts and make carts squeal with delight. Before rounds, guests can enjoy a practice session at the driving range, chipping area, and two practice greens.
