Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Wake to a more soothing world with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a one-month spa membership at Planet Beach (a $169 value), valid at the Boise location on West Overland Road, the Meridian locations on North Eagle Road and South Meridian Road, and the Nampa location on Caldwell Boulevard.
Planet Beach's expert spa technicians coax inner beauty to the surface with an assortment of beauty-boosting services that focus on overall health and wellness. Like fitness gyms and Richie Rich tree-house clubs, Planet Beach has a membership system that grants access to numerous luxuries at the spa, discounts on products, and access to in-house dieticians and specialists. Revive dull complexions by stepping into the Mystic Spray tanning booth for a full-body bronze, or brighten up a set of chompers with teeth whitening. Members can also restore their faces to factory settings with a slew of machine-based procedures such as the UMO facial that improves skin elasticity and reduces fine lines.
Walk the path to healthy lifestyles with online personal nutrition coaching, an online wellness coach, and exclusive guided meditation services in which an encouraging staff helps pupils internalize calming mantras such as "Om" and "Come on, Eileen."
Additional products may be required for certain services but are not included in this Groupon.
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 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 in order 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.
