Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services.

New Awakenings is a warm, inviting oasis where aestheticians expertly revitalize tormented extremities during a deluxe manicure and pedicure. After seating patrons in the upscale treatment room, a specialist will treat fatigued feet to a soothing pedicure. First, a luxurious seaweed-saturated bath and a skin-smoothing seaweed-salt scrub pamper cramping toes; then a hydrating foot-and-leg massage assuages achy muscles with an antioxidant-saturated mixture of vitamins C and E, ginkgo biloba, and heavily buttered Brussels sprouts. The deluxe manicure closely mimics its foot-focused counterpart, rounding out serrated claws, quenching parched paws, lacquering hue-less talons, and massaging hands and arms.
The saying "practice makes perfect" couldn't ring more true for nutritionist Sadhana Bahl, who spent 1,380 hours training to become a licensed paramedical aesthetician. The owner of Adonia Skin Wellness Spa works alongside aesthetician J. Brooke Thurmond, an advanced medical skincare specialist who also clocked 1,380 hours of training, in her quest to develop the skills necessary to treat and correct common skin disorders. Together, Team Adonia tackles everything from rosacea to enlarged pores using advanced aesthetic treatments and products from Image Skincare and PCA Skin. The spa's corrective facials are customized to each client’s skin type, and the signature Indian herb facial uses ayurvedic principles and ingredients such as turmeric, sandalwood, and aloe vera to balance the skin. Bahl and Thurmond also foster glowing complexions by exfoliating the epidermis with crystal or diamond microdermabrasion treatments or with LED light therapy, which uses blue light to kill bacteria and make acne feel so sad it leaves.
