Walking through the inviting open double doors of SpaBlue at Del Mar you can feel your body relax as you are welcomed into a luxurious bright lobby with a sprawling grand staircase. It smells like fresh flowers and citrus and you realize you might want to stay all day in your newfound peaceful oasis. Located on the famous Via de la Valle street of Del Mar adjacent to the iconic race track, SpaBlue has the lavish feel of a grand resort spa, but set in a modern and charming community environment.
What typically sets apart large resort spas is the attention to detail, but at SpaBlue they spare no expense in their attention to detail including their green initiatives. In fact, the spa was awarded “Sustainable Spa of the Year” for 2015 by the Green Spa Network. And its not surprising given their extensive time and energy spent on creating an “eco-luxury” spa experience. From their non-VOC paint to a tree being planted to replace each one that was used in their wood floors, even the most eco-conscious spa goer can endorse and promote this beautiful spa to their friends.
Since their opening in 2014 they have continued to set the bar high and expand their spa menu and amenities including a luxurious full service nail salon, beauty studio and newly opened med-spa with experienced and licensed physicians. Many of the products carried in the spa are brands like Epicuren known for their high quality and natural formulas and they even offer vegan nail polish in their nail salon.
Your options for facials, massages, and body treatments come in every variety and length and the spa will happily cater to your specific requests and needs. If you are in the mood for combining treatments they even offer “The Best of Both” package that includes a full body massage and facial in one rejuvenating 90 minute experience. Capitalizing on our oceans’ natural resources the “SeaWater Pearl Facial” uses a unique combination of seawater pearls and algae caviar to create a cleansing and ultra-moisturizing facial. They offer a full line of body treatments from the island inspired “Tropical Body Polish” that uses papaya and pineapple to the “Detox Treatment” that exfoliates and renews your skin with a warn seaweed mask.
The “Soothing Stones” massage is a popular treatment, especially during the cool months of fall and winter, and for good reason! The smell of the exotic and beautiful massage oil as an experienced therapist gently and purposefully uses natural stones to relax and stretch your tired muscles is intoxicating and rejuvenating to all your senses. As you feel your body and mind unwind with the rhythm of the stones you begin to feel grounded again, as if the stones were bringing you back in tune with nature and the natural rhythms of your body.
SpaBlue at Del Mar should be on your list of spas to visit whether you are a local or a seasonal visitor to San Diego. Treat yourself this holiday season with one of their special spa packages like the “Royal Island Ritual” or “Spa Retreat Package” available through the end of December. Their attention to detail will apply to your experience and you will leave with a renewed sense of self and peace after treating yourself at this five star day spa.
