ULTIMATE LUXURY DAY SPA EXPERIENCE

FLOAT in Santa Barbara

By Bonnie Carroll

              

 

The most popular of Santa Barbara’s great bliss zones is FLOAT Luxury Day Spa, located at 18 East Canon Perdido in Santa Barbara, California. Natalie Rowe and her partner have left no stone unturned to create their vision of spa bliss at Float. The building is quite spacious within, offering separate dressing rooms with showers for men and women, as well as a bevy of unique treatment rooms and a comfortably chic waiting area, where healthy tea and snacks are served. The interiors showcase clean graceful lines and are done in beige, white and blue. Everything at Float is easy on the eyes and restful to the spirit.

 

The treatments have been designed to provide visitors with an opportunity to de-stress, find balance, feel light and just float. Their menu features a variety of facial and massage treatments, as well as special ritual packages that combine facial and body treatments. Couples can enjoy treatments together in rooms designed with side-by-side tables. 

                                         

 

The spa’s private garden with a reflecting pond and European fountains is available for special wedding parties and groups visiting the spa. It is a beautiful venue for an unforgettable spa day celebration experience. Float can arrange for catered lunches if requested.

 

The Pacific Paradise Ritual is just one of the many delightful 'day at the spa' packages offered, and includes a papaya pineapple exfoliating body scrub followed with a mist of passion fruit and coconut emulsion, and ends with a full body massage with warm coconut & kukui nut oil, given at the clients desired pressure level. Simply Outstanding!  Float also offers a Champagne treatment that seems rather intriguing, and visitors are encouraged to ask about it. The facial menu has everything from pigment balancing to gel peels and the ultimate in nurturing treatments for women and men of all ages. The collagen boost facial is done with rich vitamin serums and left my skin ‘glowing’ according to friends who saw me later. The therapist was a skilled skin specialist who knew how to thoroughly hydrate my skin, leaving it soft and vibrant.

 

The milieu of divine products for men and women include Jack Black, Epicurean, Dr. Dennis Gross and SkinCeuticals which can also be purchased to purchase for home enjoyment. Following treatments at this peaceful and stress free sanctuary it is likely you will begin feeling like a leaf drifting on the current of a peaceful pond. Float also offers gift certificates that can be purchased online. Clearly, a day of floating is a gift worth giving to yourself or anyone you care about.
