You know you’re in for royal treatment when the first thing you encounter on your spa visit is a grand, Taj Mahal-style relaxation area with vaulted ceilings and gilded paneling.
A few blocks away from Beverly Hills’ famous Rodeo Drive, Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Spa Montage Beverly Hills reflects its swanky neighborhood by not only wowing you upon entry but by offering the latest skin and body innovations with exclusive luxury lines like English fragrance-maker Lola’s Apothecary and beloved Swiss beauty brand L.RAPHAEL.
With amenities like a 20,000-square-foot facility with rooftop pool access, a well-appointed gift shop with an extensive line of premium skincare products and a full-service salon by celebrity colorist Kim Vo, this is an easy spot to love. However, even with those polished perks, the following are our favorite things about Spa Montage Beverly Hills:
New Signature Treatment
Pure Bliss — a new signature treatment available at six Montage hotels, including Los Cabos — is an aptly named service.
Part of an exclusive partnership between Montage and U.K.-based, all-natural aromatherapy brand Lola’s Apothecary, the 90- or 120-minute body treatment includes a salt and sugar body scrub, a milk bath in a warm body wrap, a scalp and body massage, and a cooling crystal facial. And the best part: you don’t have to move — all of it is done on the massage table so you can relax undisturbed during the entire indulgence.
Customize your pampering with Lola’s Apothecary essential oil fragrances like Monsoon Paradise (jasmine and citrus with 24-karat gold), Sweet Lullaby (vanilla, orange and ylang-ylang) or Delicate Romance (rose, geranium and sandalwood). We recommend requesting Parker, a 10-year seasoned pro with expert technique and gentle demeanor.
Glamorous Coed Space
When planning a couple’s spa day out in Los Angeles, it can be a challenge to find a facility where you can actually spend some quality downtime together. Not so at Spa Montage Beverly Hills.
At the heart of the spa is a glimmering coed area with a large mineral soaking pool and luxurious cream-colored loungers. Linger in the sumptuous space while dining on healthy light bites, such as a farmers market veggie wrap, avocado toast or kale salad.
If you forgot your swimwear, don’t worry — complimentary disposable bathing suits are provided by request.
Your Personal Spa
Because of the sheer size of the 17-treatment room Spa Montage Beverly Hills, the scene is serene even on a busy day. It feels almost like you have the place to yourself. The fabulous private napping beds in the lounges certainly help in providing a sense of calm.
Should you find yourself alone in the locker rooms, that’s a great thing. Unwind further pre- or post-treatment in men and women’s facilities that have everything you could dream of for destressing, including a whirlpool, a Turkish steam room, a redwood sauna, Swiss showers and a fireplace-lit lounge with tea and nutritious nibbles like almonds and dark chocolate.
