Gentle ambient music and the splashing of a waterfall into a copper basin score the relaxing services at Fusion Ultimate Couples Retreat. As the name implies, this spa designs its massages almost exclusively for pairs on the principle that the experience can be even better when shared with someone else. An ocean-view suite sets the scene for Fusion's signature oceanfront massages, during which therapists gently work side-by-side on clients' muscles with a blend of modalities. Nine styles, including deep-tissue, bamboo, and candle-wax massage, can be used to address different types of muscle and joint tension. To further aid in relaxation, the spa also houses a private hot-tub and sauna room.
At Kissed by the Sun Spa, relaxation is key. Treatment rooms are surrounded by candles to help create a calm atmosphere as soon as customers walk in the door. The spa’s pampering treatments help clients further unwind, and include custom facials, relaxing massage or lomilomi massages, luxurious scrubs with bourbon and brown sugar, or a facial mask made with natural ingredients such as green tea or oat milk. Resurfacing Solutions facials tackle fine lines and wrinkles, and are tailored for each individual's unique skin type.
Inside an unassuming brick building, Ridgely Retreat takes its name seriously. The multifaceted spa, wellness center, and yoga studio offers mental escapes in the form of hot-stone massages and meditation classes as well as physical relief in the form of acupuncture and chiropractic services. The eclectic yoga offerings range from gentle and Vinyasa classes to yoga dance, wine-and-cheese yoga, children’s yoga, and the newly added aerial yoga. On the spa side, services such as glycolic peels and Fraxel laser resurfacing flaunt a modern edge, though the cherry-blossom facial, detox body wrap, and warm bamboo treatment let clients experience the kind of classic relaxation enjoyed by hedonistic pandas the world over.

Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
