With all of the chaos of the holiday season, it’s essential to make time for yourself and have a total self-care moment. The LA Girl definitely needed a mental pause after all of the fantastic events and festivities that were happening this month, so we decided to head straight to the doors of LA’s coziest day spa, Larchmont Sanctuary Spa, for a special holiday treat!
Located at 331 N Larchmont Blvd in Larchmont Village, our team bundled up and prepared for a day of rest and relaxation, and we did just that! We are still obsessing over our experience and we just had to share all of the fantastic services and qualities that this hidden gem has to offer.
Pro Tip: The ease of parking in one of their four storefront parking spots just added to our carefree morning, because every LA Girl reader knows, in Los Angeles, that is pretty much unheard of.
The Cozy Atmosphere
Larchmont Sanctuary Spa sits cozily in a 100-year-old home that is painted orange from top to bottom. After parking in one of the convenient front-row spots, we headed through the doors to experience a variety of skincare goodies, candles, and adorable holiday decorations. All of the products in the front are women-owned, hand-curated, and of course, beneficial to overall skin health! Spa Director, Bevin Hamilton, warmly welcomed us with refreshments, small snacks, and gave us a mini tour of the incredible revamped space. The interior design gives off a homey, comfortable and chic woodsy cabin-like vibe. We felt like we were in a holiday Hallmark movie! It was renovated right before Covid and took on this new approach of offering an indoor-outdoor spa concept. Plus, the scent of eucalyptus and lavender that filled the air centered our minds and spirit for what was yet to come.
Every client at Larchmont Sanctuary Spa changes into a long and very plush white robe and comfortable slippers, then led to the tranquil and serene waiting area that is currently decked out in festive Christmas decor and features a luxe warm-lit fire place. We sat and drank mimosas as Bevin chatted in detail about our services.
Pro Tip: Although it is a phone-free area, we discovered that the wifi is called “The Happiness Network,” and now we understand why. You will experience pure bliss after treating yourself to services at this gem.
A Service for Everyone
No matter what type of service you are looking for, our bet is Larchmont Sanctuary Spa offers it. With a variety of facials, massages, detox treatments and more, they will cater to your specific needs and skin goals. In fact, they are very popular and well known for their Couples Packages, which can include a luxurious and intimate bath in their unique copper tub. Date night anyone?
Here’s what we loved! Each member of The LA Girl team received one of the best customized facials we’ve ever experienced. After a consultation by one of Larchmont Sanctuary Spa’s fabulous estheticians (& we mean TRULY fabulous!), we each had a curated facial treatment that was based on our skin care needs and concerns. Some of us were introduced to a double cleansing, a lactic peel, ultrasonic treatment and relaxing jelly mask to really make our skin glow.
Our estheticians were so lovely and had walked each us through every step of the facial process, to make sure we were comfortable throughout our treatment. After our facials, we individually spent time in a 15 minute heated bubble bath surrounded by rose petals and our mimosas within reach. They also have a full sauna to detox your body before your service. Finally, we were given a bag of goodies and samples that replicated what was used during our facial treatments and to ensure we receive the same benefits in the comfort of our own homes.
Run, don’t walk to this hidden oasis in LA, because you’ll never experience a day spa, rather a SPA DAY quite like this!
