Spa Slut: The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental San Francisco

Forget Rice-A-Roni and Ghirardelli Chocolates, the Spa at the Mandarin Oriental is the true San Francisco treat. It seems like it’s always tough for urban luxury hotels to create a real “destination spa” environment when they are confined to a vertical building. Based on the names and prices, I have gone to many top luxury […]

Spa Slut Finds Mother’s Day Indulgences at the Best Spas Across the U.S. (via HuffPo)

The Spa Slut came out in all her fabulous glory to find the best spots for moms to be spoiled across the U.S. for Mother’s Day.  I had SO much fun writing this piece and of course I got jealous while writing it because I wanted to be at all these spas instead of sitting […]

Spa Slut: Sense, A Rosewood Spa (SF Bay Area) Part 2

Yesterday I made you drool with tales of cucumber water and dark chocolate decadence combined with sweet-smelling amenities like California Woods-scented air and lemongrass bath products — all enjoyed while gazing out of floor-to-ceiling windows facing the Santa Cruz mountains. Welcome to Sense Spa at the Rosewood Sand Hill (about 30 minutes outside of San Francisco).  Read […]

Spa Slut: Sense, A Rosewood Spa (San Francisco Bay Area) Part 1

Can you believe it’s been a year since I’ve written as the Spa Slut?  There’s a reason for that… As much as I’ll whore around at any spa regardless of if it’s getting my shoulders rubbed at the airport or spending $200 on a 50 minute treatment so I can experience what locals consider a […]

Spa Slut: Mzia Shiman Spa in NYC

I heard about Mzia Shiman Spa via GiltCity. While other flash sites like Groupon and Lifebooker can be a bit of a crap-shoot (50% off a facial at a nail salon that calls itself a spa isn’t such a great deal), GiltCity has always been discerning when it comes to choosing spas partners.  They take the class up a notch by offering deals […]

Spa Slut: Goddess for a Day (or two) at the Spa Palazzo at the Boca Raton Resort & Spa

Leave your stress and reality at the door of the Spa Palazzo in Boca Raton, Florida. This place  literally transports you to an imaginary world.  Picture yourself as a hedonistic Fitzgerald character in the roaring twenties (the hotel was built in 1926), or become a Spanish queen bathing in your decadent private quarters (the spa was  modeled after […]

Spa Slut: St. Regis Deer Valley Remede Spa

Before this past weekend, I never would have thought I would rate a ski resort spa like the St. Regis Deer Valley Remede Spa (SRDVRS) in Park City, Utah as one of my top 5 luxury spas of all time.  I mean come on, I detest the cold, and I’m certainly no skier (zero coordination).  But I […]

Spa Slut: The Mauna Lani Spa in Kohala (Part Two)

Sitting here with my multiple layers, listening to my pre-war heater’s inner poltergeist bang pipes together, it’s hard to believe I was just in Hawaii a mere ten days ago.  After re-reading Part 1 of my visit to the Mauna Lani Spa, I realized I had forgotten one detail about the spa that I find so […]

Spa Slut: The Mauna Lani Spa in Kohala, Hawaii (Part 1)

How fitting that for my first two “Sunday Splurges” of the year I am focusing on the Mauna Lani Spa on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii?  I want to divide the Mauna Lani Spa into two posts for the pure selfish reason of reliving every detail. Well… not every detail.  I could do without vividly remembering getting […]

Spa Slut: Mandarin Oriental Elbow Beach in Bermuda

So obviously I am not going to make this long… I am enjoying myself too much to sit at a computer typing.  My husband is putting in our football picks for tomorrow so I thought I would type a short update.  It is so beautiful here. The island, the beaches, the people… To die for.  […]
