Rejuvenate Sun Spa's pampering professionals aim to heal and beautify beleaguered epidermises with a suite of skincare and tanning services. Over the course of two spa visits, enlist one of these seasoned staffers to perform some of their impressive restorative feats, such as enswathing your edifice in a revivifying body wrap or reciting the entire Gettysburg address in pig Latin while shepherding you to one of their tanning beds equipped with state-of-the-art green glow bulbs. During a visit, clients can also hop into the Hydration Station spa unit, an LED-emitting apparatus that gently bathes the body in heat, vitamin-infused steam, and light waves to evict toxins and loitering skin gnomes. Or go for the Lumiere Light Therapy photofacial, a noninvasive, procedure employing red-light particles that may help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, perform first aid on sun damage and small scars, and aid in healing unsightly acne.

Boasting more than 2,000 brands of wine, Vineyard Gate provides an Eden for oenophiles as well as an ideal place for tannin tenderfoots to cover acres of unexplored fertility. Venerable vino aficionados help pick out wine that pairs perfectly with each client's palate and lifetime supply of space meals. Vineyard's selection spans both the far ends of the Earth and the budget: for less than $30, sample the crisp, fruity 2007 Sacha Lichine VDP blanc ($9) or the 2006 Waterbrook cabernet sauvignon, with hints of ripe cherry and currant ($21). This Groupon can also go toward a splurge on more swanky spirits such as the 2004 Château de la Tour Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Burgundy, an elegant elixir with a mouth-coating finish ($106). Vineyard also offers a variety of sparkling wines, roses, champagnes, and half-bottles for the more temperate tippler.
