As much fun as a spa weekend can be, if you can shift the pampering to a weeknight, the savings are huge at some big-city spas. From San Francisco to Atlanta, happy hour-style spa specials mean general price reductions as well as mini-treatments for a fraction of the price of full-length ones. Here are four great promotions:
Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia
Nestled in one of the country’s best spa cities, Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is attempting to entice visitors after 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. That’s when, as part of the Afternoon Escape deal, you can get a 50-minute Classic massage or Transformation facial for $99, a drastic reduction from $159 on weekends and $149 during other weekday hours. The hyper-local spa — inspired by Morocco’s desert — culls its Joyambrosia signature scent from a cactus flower that blooms only under a full moon planted right outside the spa entrance.
Hibiscus Spa at Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa
Head to the Strip on a weekday and you’ll cash in on savings at Hibiscus Spa, a tranquil 10,000-square-foot retreat within Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa. From Monday through Friday, those looking to relax can choose two or more from a collection of six specials.
