Puddingstone's panoramic views provide eyefuls of the San Gabriel Valley's rocky ranges from every perspective, whether it's the mountains' natural grandeur or their reflection off the placid waves of the resort's namesake lake. While its picturesque plateaus set breathtaking scenes for weddings and other special events, the resort's 20 semiprivate hot tubs are its premier attraction. Nestled within its own cabana—complete with a private changing room, CD player, and controls for water temperature and light—each of the open-air hot tubs instantly conjures romance and relaxation. As candles flicker and sparkling cider chills on the surrounding deck, bathers take in beautiful views of the sun setting over Puddingstone Lake and the valley below. Hot-tubbers may bring a cooler and basket of snacks to enhance the evening, so long as containers aren’t made of glass and patrons wait at least 30 minutes before swimming laps.

The epidermis experts at Kirana Day Spa pamper dull dermises with all-natural, organic products. Clogged countenances can rid themselves of deadbeat skin cells with the 70-minute Ageless Beauty facial ($75), which harnesses the exfoliating power of organic apples, grapes, and naseberry, along with two herbal masks, to increase blood flow, detoxify skin, and reveal the secret location of Davy Jones's bathroom. Peepers also receive a fine-tuned perking with an anti-aging eye exfoliation ($20), which evicts ocular blemishes such as wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles brought on by sleepless nights spent mulling over tactics for tomorrow's three-legged race. The pampersperience also includes a soothing massage for the face, shoulders, and arms.
The word friends is featured prominently in the decor at Now & Zen Salon & Day Spa. It sits above a mirror in a softly lit treatment room, and it hangs in a picture frame on a light-blue wall. This emphasis on friendship is a reflection of how the staff members view their clients. They welcome visitors with warm smiles and make them feel at home by reminding them to load the dishwasher. During treatments in private rooms, massage therapists work out pain and stress using hot stones and deep-tissue techniques. Elsewhere, aestheticians wax away unwanted fuzz and use facial peels to smooth complexions.
Under the supervision of Dr. Bryn Henderson—a doctor of osteopathy—Flawless Med Spa's licensed aesthetician and registered nurse combat signs of aging with advanced medical and cosmetic treatments. On the aesthetic side, clients can brighten and soften their complexions with an exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment, hydrating Intraceuticals oxygen infusion, or dry-ice acne slush treatment known as cryotherapy—which exfoliates the skin with liquid CO2, rather than the classic cherry flavor. Alternatively, medical-based procedures include slimming waistlines with an HCG weight-loss program and shedding unwanted hairs with lasers. Flawless Med Spa further encourages healthy, glowing skin by using Obagi and Ayur-Medic skincare products as well as providing complimentary consultations before each treatment.
Wild Earth's sugaring treatment uses a soft, all-natural, sugar-based paste that adheres just to hair, and because this paste is gently patted onto the skin and peeled off in the direction of hair growth, it's substantially less uncomfortable than traditional waxing. It's also more effective because fewer hairs break in the process and are therefore removed completely from their follicle foxholes. Wild Earth's sugaring mix is body temperature—not scalding hot—and completely sanitary.
