Best Luxury Spa, August 2008
When you visit the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village
, you might want to pack a bag that includes the following: workout clothes for a session in the 14,000-square-foot fitness center, a bathing suit for the adults-only pool, a cover-up for a poolside lunch or a stroll to the orchid hothouse, and drawstring pants for a sunset yoga class in the Chinese pagoda. The tariffs are stiff at this Euro-Asian spa—50-minute massages start at $145—but spend a few hours here, and the cost of PPM (pampering per minute) seems like a bargain. Four hours’ free parking is a nice touch.
