Spa-style Pampering for TwoYou've put in your time, you've worked hard and you've fulfilled all your responsibilities. Isn't it about time you rewarded yourself with a spa getaway for just you and your partner? If it is, check out this list of best spa vacations for couples.
Although the historic River Walk area is filled with day spas, the most luxurious of the bunch is located just outside the city in the surrounding Hill Country. As you and your partner drive through acres of fragrant wildflowers, you'll understand exactly how the Windflower got its name. Located on a Texas ranch, this day spa caters to its guests with custom-formulated treatments inspired by the flowers and herbs that are native to this region.
The Windflower - San Antonio, Texas
As you relax on the grounds of the Windflower, your cares will drift away. You and your partner can choose your indulgence from the services menu, which is designed for both sexes. Depending on your individual tastes, you'll partake in spa treatments like the Bourbon Bubbler or the Urban Cowgirl. Later, you can relax on the lawn as you soak up the sun and enjoy the atmosphere. You'll leave looking and feeling your best.
It's easy to see why this is one of the best spa vacations for couples. Inspired by the French-Polynesian Islands, Le Petite Retreat was one of the first spas to offer specialized couple's treatments. It allows you to enjoy the experience in the same room. Whether you're interested in a couple's massage or private bathing in a relaxing indoor/outdoor environment, you'll never be separated during your spa treatments, unless you want to be.

Imagine ending your day with the Couples Champagne for Two add-on. After your massage, immerse yourself in a copper tub and enjoy sipping champagne with your significant other. The spa enhances the cozy atmosphere with the light of dozens of flickering candles. This could be the first step to one of the most romantic nights of your life!
Of course, you'd never want to end a day like this in a crowded hotel. As a perfect finish to the perfect day, return to a luxury Los Angeles vacation rental home to continue your evening of pleasure in private.
If you'd like to enjoy the most relaxing couple's spa in all of New York City, plan on spending time at Faina. Although this spa also offers signature spa treatments designed just for men, the pampering experiences intended for couples are too good to pass up.
