Spa at Terranea Resort

Best Massage with a View, August 2011
Is it the ion-charged oxygen? The rhythmic splashing of waves on rocks? The blue on blue of ocean and sky that (almost) never fades from sight? The massage experience inside the VIP treatment room at the Spa at Terranea Resort is certainly the most blissful in the L.A. area. Yes, there is that period of time when, facedown on the table, you can’t see the Pacific undulating beneath the balcony. Otherwise the visual gratification is nonstop, including posttreatment, when spa goers can retire to the adjoining ocean-view terrace, which is outfitted with a windscreen, lounges, and an outdoor shower.
