In our opinion, all you really need for a "summer body" is smooth, healthy-looking skin and pretty toenails. Luckily, many Dallas spas agree, so they are offering summer-only specials that conjure up thoughts of ocean breezes and tropical drinks.
Take advantage of the treatments at these seven spas:
Treat yourself at Bellacures at Preston Center, where the staff brings the beach to Dallas. The Los Angeles Beach Sand Manicure and Pedicure service includes coconut lime verbena warm hand and foot soak, sand scrub with grapeseed oil, minty clay refreshing mask, coconut oil massage, and coconut butter cream. Also enjoy a complimentary Green Goddess Juice from Roots Pressed Juices.
The manicure is $40, and the pedicure is $50 during June and July.
With a holistic offering that includes barre, yoga and core fusion classes along with a variety of spa therapies, Exhale Dallas is a one-stop-shop for a getaway without leaving town. Exhale’s Summer Slimdown is a great way to get in shape this summer while grabbing some great discounts and exclusive swag. Sign up for a package of 12 classes with two bonus passes to use or share for $250, or 24 classes, plus four bonus passes to use or share, for $350.
Each class package includes 10 percent off boutique purchases through September 6, plus a swag bag complete with summer goodies and Exhale fitness apparel. Schedule a facial or deep tissue massage to round out your experience.
Hiatus Spa + Retreat
Go on an 80-minute vacay without leaving Dallas with a visit to Hiatus. Try the refreshing Watermelon Crush in July, featuring a scrub of organic cane sugar, watermelon seeds and mint, complete with a vivacious Midori cocktail to finish the experience.
In August, the full-body Key Lime Pie treatment will leave guests feeling fresh and energetic. Celebrate the heat of the season with September’s Firefly retreat with warming spices of Masala Chai, ginger, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Get them while they last: Monthly retreats feature limited-time treatments for $195.
Mokara Spa at Omni Dallas
Talk about a sweet escape: Mokara Spa has recently launched two honey-inspired treatments to celebrate the new honey-centric menu items available at Omni Dallas Hotel. An organic pampering experience awaits with the Honey & Wild Berry Sparkling Facial. The beneficial properties of the antioxidants found in organic fruits, vegetables and herbs infuse this $100 twist on Mokara’s summer facial.
In the mood for a head-to-toe experience? Try the Honey Mandarin Massage: a classic Swedish massage enhanced by custom-blended aromatherapy oils of mandarin and honey for hydration and complete relaxation for $105. The specials are available through Labor Day.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa
When everyone else is stuck behind a desk, sneak away to the Ritz-Carlton Spa during June and August. The spa is offering its annual $99 massage/facial special that treats guests to either a 50-minute Ritz-Carlton Signature Massage or a 50-minute Organic Facial, complete with customized attention to the guest’s skin type and needs.
In July, try the 50-minute Migraine Miracle: a massage that combines aromatherapy, pressure point therapy and cold therapy to dramatically reduce headache symptoms. In the mood for something a little sweeter? Sample the brand-new Honey Butterscotch Rum Manicure-Pedicure. It starts with a soak in nectar milk and a delicious butter rum scrub before finishing off with a silky-smooth Ginger Sorbet Body Milk that will leave digits feeling smoother than a fine cocktail.
Well & Being Spa & Salon at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas
The services at the newly revamped Four Seasons spa might be the most splash-worthy specials this summer. Enjoy a watermelon-basil vodkatini sugar scrub polish and a whipped citrus-vanilla shea butter cream massage during the Watermelonade Massage and Body Refresher for $140.
Give your hands and feet the attention they deserve with the mani-pedi combo featuring an antioxidant-rich citrus-cilantro soak with a grapeseed and olive fruit oil blend. Enjoy the same sugar scrub and massage offered with the Watermelonade Massage and Body Refresher when you indulge in the Watermelonade Manicure and Pedicure. The 25-minute manicure costs $50, while the 50-minute pedicure costs $85.
Both treatments are available June 1 through August 31.
ZaSpa Dallas at Hotel ZaZa
