The sea below, the sky above, and the spa right in the middle of it all. Every single element of The Spa at Bacara has been designed to encourage relaxation. Add in the lapping waves of the Pacific Ocean nearby, and you have a close approximation of what it's like to live inside a giant silk pillow.
In the spa's 36 treatment rooms, clients relax with the help of services inspired by classic European traditions or infused with local ingredients. Whether you choose to indulge in a Swedish massage or an exfoliating orange-peel scrub, don't miss out on the private sunbathing area before or after your session.
A few years ago, Marcus and Eva Kettles fell in love at first sight. Not with each other—they were already married—but with an SPX workout they experienced at a friend's studio. Marcus, a Pilates master student, and Eva, a Megaformer trainer, were drawn to how SPX was rooted in Pilates but also introduced new elements. In addition to the toning and flexibility you get from Pilates exercises, SPX's 40-minute circuit-style workouts incorporate strength and cardio training.
Though SPX is at the core of Fit Buddha's philosophy, it's not all the studio offers. Options include indoor cycling classes with Schwinn AC performance bikes and a wellness center with an infrared sauna. The detoxifying sauna can help the body recuperate from workouts with heat designed to ease pain and muscle tension, cleanse the skin and organs, and erase memories of the guy who may or may not have smoked you in class today.
Qui Si Bella Spa's devotion to holistic and eco-friendly products doesn't stop with its organic herbs or eucalyptus-scented steam—even the spa's Kangen ionized water is specially purified to retain maximum mineral content. Rainforest herbs and organic ingredients comprise facials inspired by different world cultures, and scrubs and wraps refresh skin with coconut-milk soaks and botanical-infused scrubbing salts. Qui Si Bella’s staff also massages sore muscles, treats digits to manicures and pedicures, and applies permanent makeup to eyes, eyebrows, and lips. Additional services such as chiropractic, weight management, nutritional programs, and hydrocolon therapy led by Sandra Sphar help round out the spa's menu.
Massage Green Spa is built upon commitment—to its clients and to the environment. Therapists first and foremost listen to clients. Personal preference remains key, whether it's the first appointment, when guests detail what ails them, or any followup session, where client requests guide the massage's pressure level and the inclusion of enhancements such as aromatherapy.
As for the environment, the spa demonstrates commitment through the space's eco-friendly building materials and its use of eco-washed linens and high-efficiency heaters. And thanks to its service to both categories, the spa has earned quite a following—including the title of exclusive massage-therapy clinic of the Detroit Tigers.
