The Montage Hotel & Resort Spa In Fabulous Laguna California
What was the occasion: For this summer’s Labor Day weekend I continued my usual travel routine which meant getting out of town and enjoying a nice long weekend of R & R in Laguna Beach, California. My dear friend Lindsay, aka The Lunch Belle’s sister Leila was getting married in Laguna Beach so it was the perfect occasion for a long weekend getaway. Prior to the wedding, my cousin and I decided to head down early to spend a day enjoying the fabulous Montage Hotel & Resort’s Spa. My cousin been a bunch and promised I’d love it. She was right!
What was the spa like; We booked a Spa Treatment which lets you enjoy all of the Spa facilities including the private pool (separate from the pool the hotel guests/non spa members use), a gym (with the most spectacular gym view I’ve experienced), as well as the typical spa offerings: Steam Room, Sauna, Hot Tub as well as a very unique Cold Plunge pool.
What is offered after your treatment: After your treatment they recommend a series including 10 minutes in the hot tub, a quick underwater plunge in the cold pool, then 10 minutes outside of the water relaxing and having your heart rate steady. This is suggested to be done 3 times for a total of 60 minutes. I did the routine twice and was beyond refreshed, rejuvenated and restored after my amazing Reflexology Treatment!!
Why visit: For those looking for a fabulous Spa or just a great mini day vacation the Montage Hotel & Resort’s Spa is it. The Hotel & Resort is beyond gorgeous with spectacular water front views, multiple pools and a phenomenal Spa.
How is the service: The service was 5 stars, as expected for the expensive cost of staying at the Hotel or enjoying the Spa. Everyone was extremely gracious, friendly, accommodating and very well-trained. To me, the extra touches the staff and Hotel/Spa team does are what truly set apart a great hotel from a fabulous hotel and The Montage is definitely a FABULOUS Hotel & Resort! If you’re like me and want as much time in the sun as you can get, book a spa appointment later in the day (after 5pm) so you can arrive to the Spa, get a workout in, head to the pool, leisurely hang out and have lunch by the pool and then as the sun is going down head into the Spa for your treatment. It’s beyond a perfect day and I promise you’ll love it as much as I did. 30801 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA 92651. 949.715.6010
