Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydromassages to oxygen and UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Moisturize with a 20-minute session in the hydro-derma-fusion pod, which bathes clients in infrared heat and nutrient-rich steam, cleansing the skin and readying pores to absorb products. Vibration massage and aromatherapy enhance the experience inside the SlimCapsule, a weight-management tool that also attacks muscle aches and pains.
Mystic spray-tan booths spritz skin with UV-free bronzer (a $18–$24 additional fee/bronzer cartridge), and teeth-whitening stations brighten choppers by pairing peroxide with LED lights (a $99 additional fee/teeth-whitening kit). A staff of helpful spa assistants is always on hand to answer questions, help first-timers use the machines, and keep things safe and comfortable. Call ahead to make appointments; services are subject to availability.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all of the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
