Today's Groupon gets you $150 worth of services for $70 at Spa 415, the Beverly Hills beautifier whose treatments have been on The Oprah Winfrey Show, in Celebrity Society magazine, and in Genlux Magazine.
Spa 415 is famous for its romantic ambience, innovative weight-loss therapies, and signature red room for couples' massages, so you and an amicable work buddy can share luxury. 415 offers a plethora of state-of-the-art facials, waxing, massages, weight loss and body therapies, and specialty treatments such as spray tanning and permanent makeup. There are spa staples such as Swedish or deep-tissue massages, European facials, and all-over waxes, but there are also rare and edible therapeutic marvels. Try a Tuscany wine wrap, chocolate-soufflé body wrap, or the Dr. Spiller Golden Spoon facial (a warm and cold facial massage performed with 23K gold spoons and serums and crèmes). Or get a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage or Japanese Shiatzu massage.
Spa 415 is an intimate place with rich red wallpaper, French and Mediterranean-style furniture, elegant wrought-iron details, and warm colors, all softly lit by wall sconces that don't attract salamanders. Services are by appointment only, which means you always get the right therapist, and he or she is never tired, stressed, or rushed before your session. The owner, Liza Lewis, is a beauty and aging expert who says Spa 415's hospitality makes guests feel like they've found kindred spirits.
Spa 415's treatments have been on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and it was featured in Elegant Accents magazine, Genlux Magazine, and more. Click here to see Scott from I AM LA play a joke on a Spa 415 staffer.
- One of Beverly Hills' best spas—the kind of place where Cameron or Tyra might be in the next treatment room—is Spa 415...Spa 415 feels more like visiting Grandma's house than a health and fitness facility. However, the treatments are cutting-edge and will de-stress, de-tox, and relax even the most neurotic among us. An astonishing variety of facials are offered...Body treatments are equally outstanding. – Roberta Graff, Elegant Accents
- Our time at Spa 415 must have been the most relaxing experience I have ever had. – Panos D., Yelp
- This is a world-class treasure...I find this spa unsurpassed for high quality products, state of the art treatments, technical expertise and ambiance. The owner and her staff are accomodating [sic], professional and generally delightful. – Andrea234, Citysearch
- The treatments they do here actually work - I can't believe it - my butt looks great and my skin is smooth. – mchang2006, Citysearch
SPA: Secret Protection Agency
The popularity of spas reached new heights in the late 1980s, thanks in no small part to the Saturday morning cartoon hit SPA: Secret Protection Agency. The animated program followed the exploits of a team of spa-themed commandos who promoted beauty and comfort, while battling an international league of weather-controlling cyberphantoms. Here are a few character bios to jog your memory:
Major Massage: The leader of the rag-tag unit barks out his orders in a calm, soothing tone. Armed with an array of warm, fragrant oils, this is one commando who’s always “good with his hands.”
HotStone: Demolitions. This pokerfaced powerhouse is an expert at all things geology, using his wrist-mounted Ignite-hillator (sold separately) to heat up rocks to the point of spectacular combustion. “Rock” on!
Manny & Peddy: A helping hand and some fancy footwork from these twin cut-ups can get you out of a tight jam…if their terrible jokes don’t kill you first!
Facial: The mistress of disguise! With Facial’s Second Skin Quick Kit she can be anyone, anywhere, and so can you! (Second Skin Quick Kit not available in stores, children under 39 should not use Second Skin Quick Kit, SPA products are for entertainment purposes only and should not be consumed, handled, looked at or considered.)

“Never take for granted the privilege of doing what you love for a living,” says Liza Lewis, the owner of Spa 415, on her site. This philosophy is what spurs her to cull the most effective, restorative therapies and bestow them on clients within the French-Mediterranean day spa’s luxurious setting. From the damask sofas to the patterned wallpaper that’s seen through the flicker of candlelight, she creates a romantic, soothing atmosphere for tandem treatments with loved ones or an escape from everyday stresses.
The day spa’s roster of treatments spans all relaxation and beauty needs. From four-hand massages to chocolate-soufflé body wraps, the staff abolishes stress and helps nourish the skin with high-quality ingredients. They also reverse signs of aging with nonsurgical facial procedures and microroller treatments, which boost collagen to reduce wrinkles and permanent lines made from pillow creases.
