Much like an automobile, the human body requires proper care to stay healthy and good-looking for calendar photos. Maintain your natural mode of transportation with today's Groupon: for $160, you get a couples massage with champagne at Valeo, located in the JW Marriott (a $325 value).
Valeo's upscale spa environment calms the agitated waters of inner harbors with custom wellness experiences for couples with bonds either romantic or amicable. Couples lay side by side on heated warming tables for 50 minutes of massage, melting muscles into the soft, sweet dough that forms the basis of friendship cakes. Recently relaxed twosomes then retire to a private couples suite or semiprivate lounge and each enjoy a glass of champagne, letting the lithe amber bubbles weave into refreshed systems.
Boasting an intuitive staff and an air of understated luxury, Valeo strikes a quiet balance between subtlety and sophistication with gray-green slate floors matched with amenities such as illuminated bathing tubs. Valeo's side-by-side massages can cordon a variety of types of pairs off from the world and are ideal for a mother-daughter outing or an afternoon of quality time with a doppelgänger.
Valeo at the JW Marriott
Valeo’s personal-care consultants take an intuitive approach to spa treatments, loosely organizing their customized, pay-by-the-minute services into different wellness pathways. Within six clarity chambers modeled after Turkish and Moroccan hammams, or bathhouses, heated stone benches warm bodies in repose as skilled staffers apply aromatherapy wraps, detoxifying clay compounds, and other skin-pampering treatments. The Couples Connection suite hosts side-by-side spa experiences for duos, with optional romantic accouterments such as champagne, strawberries, and visits from the ghost of Barry White. The 20,000-square-foot facility also nestles eight individual experience rooms, a yoga room, a fitness club, and a pool, all within the JW Marriott hotel, located steps from sightseeing, shopping, and skyscraper-scaling opportunities in the Loop.
