Intense relaxation is always a good thing, unless your hand is on the throttle of a B-52 Stratofortress with an armed Special Weapons Emergency Separation System. Joyously surround yourself with a triad of relaxing services with today's deal to Seven Seas Spa & Salon, a part of the Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort. For $95, you get one signature massage ($77), a Signature Skin facial ($77), and a Diva on the Dash mani-pedi ($42), a $196 total value.
This center of relaxation just opened in December 2009, so the scene inside the salon is pristine. A peaceful aura permeates the air, putting stress-stuffed minds at ease and preparing intensed muscles for a careful detensifying. Your lengthy escape begins with a 50-minute Seven Seas Signature Massage. With deliberate intentions and intense deliberation, your skilled massage therapist will take your consciousness to a blissful plane where your mind can bob up and down like a Q-tip buoy in a sea of cotton balls. After your mind flutters back down into your corpus, your bliss continues with a Signature Skin Elemental Nature Facial.
Each facade rejuvenator is customized based on the specific skin needs of the recipient and lasts about 50 minutes. After a careful consultation with a trained eye that reports its finding to a team of skinologists, your facial begins. Through a series of rehydrations and exfoliations, newborn baby faces slowly emerge from the treatment's cocoon. A renewed glow and desire to be seen will befall your face, completing the second round of your gentle three-pronged attack.
The final process in your total body transformation is a Diva on the Dash mani-pedi. Over the course of about 55 minutes, all 20 nails from your 30 opposable appendages will undergo an overhaul. Finger and toe helmets are hardened to withstand worldly damages, and cuticles are carefully pushed aside to reveal the beauty hiding under creeping vines. A layer of polish is applied, and a soft cherry massage tops the entire satisfying process.
Seven Seas Spa & Salon is so new that clients are waiting for the polish to dry before using those shiny new fingers to type reviews, but the Miami Herald featured the relaxation haven in its "Spa Fancy" column:
- Seven Seas is sleek in every sense of the word. White, lavender and lime hues with modern treatments and fixtures create a contemporary ambience. Sparkling crystal walls and white leather upholstery ooze a hip feel. – Maria Tettamanti
Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon
The color scheme inside Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon transitions from chartreuse to cool blues, as if narrating, in color, the space's shift from the liveliness of the friendly stylists on the hair-salon floor to the relaxation of the soothing spa services. Using all-natural Aveda products, the hair designers snip away and demonstrate the skills they've learned in the educational workshops they attend regularly to keep abreast of the latest cut, color, and styling trends. Equally savvy spa technicians work back in the spa space, lit by royal-blue bulbs and accented by cascading light fixtures and wavy white walls. Inside private treatment rooms, gentle facials and massages immerse clients in soothing scents and sensations as effectively as a hot tub whose water has been replaced with aromatherapy oil.
