Best Day Spas & Hotel Spas in West Hollywood
Whether you’re into ancient remedies or high-tech treatments, you can try all the hottest wellness trends in West Hollywood.
If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that self-care isn’t an indulgence — it’s a necessity. Luckily, West Hollywood has gotten the practice of self-care down to a science. Here you’ll find luxe day spas that cater to movie stars, skincare pioneers who are redefining the beauty world and wellness concepts that blend age-old techniques with cutting-edge advancements.
Pencil in some relaxation at these day spas and hotel spas and you’ll leave feeling — and looking — like a million bucks.
Dr. Barbara Sturm
If you want to try the same facial treatments the stars get before big events, head to Dr. Barbara Sturm’s exclusive West Coast location in West Hollywood. Sturm has become a hot name among skincare heads, and her high-end, science-based products play a role in every treatment.
Must-Try Treatment: To get the flawless red-carpet glow of stars like Zoë Kravitz, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, go for the Exoso-Metic Growth Factor Facial, which pairs microdermabrasion and microneedling or microchanneling with Sturm’s innovative serums to help sculpt, smooth and regenerate the skin.
Remedy Place aims to connect people through healthy living, with communal spaces that feel more like a stylish hotel than a spa or gym. Remedies offered here include lymphatic compression, vitamin IV drip, acupuncture and hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy, which infuses the body with 50% more oxygen to speed up healing and reverse aging. Afterward, sip a mocktail at the non-alcoholic bar with fellow wellness lovers — it isn’t called The World’s First Social Wellness Club™ for nothing!
Must-Try Treatment: You’ll feel like one of Remedy’s celebrity clients, which includes Drake and Kim Kardashian, when you visit the Ice Bath Studio. Immersive breathwork and guided plunges into 39-degree water are meant to build resiliency and stress-test your body. Chase it with a detoxifying session in the Infrared Sauna Suite.
Full of blush-pink tones and smooth curves, the Los Angeles spa of facialist and skincare maven Joanna Vargas is a frequent stop for celebs (her sprawling list of A-list clients includes Julianne Moore, Mindy Kaling and Karlie Kloss). In addition to her coveted facials, the spa offers numerous massages, collagen-boosting LED therapy and tech-enhanced body treatments to make your skin glow in your most revealing ’fits.
Must-Try Treatment: The cat’s out of the bag on celebrities’ favorite Joanna Vargas treatment, and it’s the Triple Crown Facial. Combining microdermabrasion, microcurrent and oxygen therapy, the facial has become the go-to for celebs before walking the red carpet.
Touting itself as the “solution to modern living,” Pause Studio offers some of the most buzzed-about treatments in the wellness industry. Experience weightlessness and heightened awareness with saltwater float therapy; improve lymphatic drainage and decrease pain and soreness with compression therapy; or try out cryotherapy, which promises to burn up to 800 calories in just three minutes while destroying fat and cellulite.
Must-Try Treatment: Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is found in every cell in the body and plays a crucial role in mitochondria function, but our natural levels decrease as we age. Pause Studio’s NAD+ IV Therapy delivers a supplemental dose, packing benefits that include improved brain regeneration, restored muscle function and energy levels, and boosted mood.
Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa
Danish skincare legend Ole Henriksen has become a household name thanks to his best-selling product line. But even beauty aficionados may not know about the brand’s exclusive spa inside Sunset Plaza. Kris Jenner has been a loyal client for more than 30 years.
Must-Try Treatment: Ole Henriksen’s facials are in high demand (especially during awards season), but if it’s relaxation you crave, go for the Moroccan Bath Ritual. Celebs like Vanessa Hudgens sing the praises of this soothing treatment, which includes an effervescent soak, LED lights, aromatherapy, a chilled cucumber eye mask and a glass of bubbly — all set against a wall of flickering candles. You can do the treatment individually or as a couple, and there are several add-ons to make the experience even more luxurious, such as a sea-salt-and-sugar body scrub or a CBD bath bomb.
With a cult following for more than 50 years, Face Place has gotten luminous, lifted skin down to a science — so much so that the spa has become known as a best-kept secret among celebrities. As the name suggests, facials are the big thing here — though the spa also offers waxing, reflexology and medical aesthetics for top-to-bottom rejuvenation.
Must-Try Treatment: The iDerm Deep Skin Ionization Process is Face Place’s signature offering. Based on technology first introduced in 1937, the treatment combines extraction with galvanic current to improve skin tone and firm the skin, among myriad other benefits.
Dermalogica West Hollywood
You may have a few Dermalogica products on your bathroom counter, but this is your chance to let the brand’s in-house aestheticians work their magic on your skin. Founded in 1986, Dermalogica products are certified cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan, and the brand has been “clean” since the start. That’s one reason why Dermalogica is used by more than 100,000 skin therapists in hundreds of spas around the world.
Must-Try Treatment: If you deal with fine lines or acne scarring, try the Dermaplane facial. Using an exfoliating blade (don’t worry — it’s a painless procedure), dead skin cells and hair are removed to help brighten the skin’s surface.
Offering facials, massages and packages at a range of price points, this Sunset Strip day spa is a soothing respite during your stay in West Hollywood. A highlight of Restored’s menu is Brazilian lymphatic drainage, a method that “cleanses” the lymphatic system to detoxify the body, boost the immune system and reduce bloating. (It’s also touted for its ability to speed along the plastic surgery recovery process.)
Must-Try Treatment: Celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Meghan Markle swear by face yoga, and the Restored Facial Yoga & Treatment is the perfect way to dip your toe into this hot wellness trend. Along with a cleanse and mask, facialists use massage techniques and gua sha to release tension and sculpt the face.
The Spa at The West Hollywood EDITION
Tucked inside one of LA’s newest luxury hotels, this spa fosters the relationship between inner health and wellness with outer beauty. The expansive menu has something for everyone — from relaxing massages to sound baths and infrared therapy.
Must-Try Treatment: The Glow Facial promises to lift and firm your skin to a “new level of complexion perfection” thanks to non-invasive Jet Peel technology. Add on LED therapy or a NuFace microcurrent treatment for even more lift.
SPA at Sunset Marquis
This effortlessly cool hotel just exudes that “rockstars and models” vibe. Inspired by the many celebrity guests who have slumbered here over the years, the cheeky spa menu bears plenty of music references. Insider tip: Bring the spa to your room with the In-Villa Kaleidoscopic Bath Experience, which turns your tub into a colorful work of art with a selection of aromatic bath bombs.
Must-Try Treatment: From the Wellness Rituals menu, the Stairway to Heaven is meant to promote deep and restful sleep. Nestle into a cloud-like cocoon of pillows, linens and weighted blankets for a parasympathetic massage designed to reduce stress and anxiety. For the finishing touch, a rose-quartz foot massage is sure to hit all the right notes.
Pendry West Hollywood is a dazzling Sunset Strip boutique hotel known for its whimsical touches — like the in-house bowling alley and poolside Moët & Chandon vending machine. That thoughtfulness continues at Spa Pendry, the hotel’s on-site wellness sanctuary. Their state-of-the-art approach allows guests to design their own journey in a calming, healing environment.
Must-Try Treatment: If you’re traveling with your S.O., spring for the Moment in Time package, which includes a Pendry Signature Body Polish and 60-minute couples massage. A real highlight, the body polish is a rhythmic, full-body ritual that incorporates natural aromas like jasmine, eucalyptus, lavender or rose geranium.
Bamford Wellness at 1 Hotel West Hollywood
Rightfully described as an “urban oasis,” 1 Hotel’s luxurious West Hollywood outpost will lull you into a sense of calm as soon as you enter the lobby. The entire concept here is wellness and sustainability — a theme that continues at the hotel’s in-house spa, Bamford Wellness, devised by British organic wellness pioneer Carole Bamford.
Must-Try Treatment: If you’re looking to relax, the Bamford Signature Treatment is the best place to start. This whole-body experience includes a foot-bathing ritual to draw toxins from the body; Japanese shiatsu massage to unblock the body’s energy channels; Swedish massage with warm Himalayan stone to release tension; a face and Indian head massage to calm the mind and increase circulation; and assisted yogic breathing to oxygenate the body.
