Rejuvenate for Spring

Shake off the winter doldrums at one of only 24 Forbes Five-Star spas in the country. The Spa's treatments, exclusively made for The Grand Del Mar, will revitalize your body, mind and soul - offering a fresh start for a new spring season. Spa Director Jim Croghan recommends the following treatments to encourage body and soul to work in balance with the natural rhythms of spring.

•  Herbal Salt Scrub . Aromatic rosemary works in tandem with a stimulating Vichy shower for heightened skin efficiency and pH balancing - protecting and beautifying the skin. (30 minutes: $110 weekdays, $120 weekend)

•  Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) treatments for the face and body accelerate the removal of metabolic wastes and foreign matter via the lymph nodes, boosting immunity. Deep relaxation techniques alleviate stress, while restoring tone and elasticity to the skin. (60 minutes: $195 weekdays, $205 weekend / 90 minutes: $280 weekdays, $290 weekends)

•  Stony Silence . A subtle penetrating heat from this soothing stone massage addresses muscular aches, as well as encourages increased metabolism - melting away stress and tension. (90 minutes: $280 weekdays, $290 weekend)

•  The Spa's signature Renaissance treatment restores stamina, while easing the mind and body. A warm body wrap of mineral-rich mud and aromatic oils is followed by a rest in a free-floating bed. An invigorating rosemary-infused Swiss shower, along with a tension-relieving touch therapy, culminates this rejuvenating treatment. (90 minutes: $320 weekdays, $330 weekend)
