People naturally feel romantic when they’re bathed in mood lighting, whether it’s the twinkle of fireflies, a full moon in a starry sky, or a slow, glowing flow of lava oozing through a downtown thoroughfare. Heat up the mood with today’s Groupon: for $139, you get a couple’s spa day at Spa Vargas, located in the Hilton Chicago Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale. The spa day includes:
- A 50-minute Swedish massage (a $90 value per person)
- A 25-minute balancing petite facial (a $60 value per person)
- One mimosa each (a $4 value per person). Non-alcoholic beverages are also available.<p>
Cooing couples eager for an afternoon of self-celebration are immediately arrested by Spa Vargas’s aromatherapy-laden waiting room as they embark on a side-by-side relaxation excursion. Segueing to the rose-scattered dual suite, significant others or hero-sidekick duos are treated to a 50-minute Swedish massage, in which tensions are coaxed from backs with sweeping rhythmic motions. The 25-minute balancing petite facial is customized to skin type with all-natural products and helps to control oil production while exfoliating the head’s frontispiece. Twosomes can toast to full use of the spa’s complimentary jacuzzi with a fizzy glass of mimosa, a brunchtime favorite that combines the elegance of champagne with the technological triumph of pulverized oranges.
Spa Vargas Wellness
The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
