Spa File: Luxe Lounge at Spa La Costa

For a great weekend getaway, complete with your girls in tow (or to meet up with your girls who live in southern Southern California) visit Spa La Costa in Carlsbad, just 130 miles south of Agoura Hills. But go Friday late at night if you can, because as I have found, no matter what time you leave on a weekend day, you’re going to get stuck in traffic.

Once ensconced at one of the luxurious rooms on the resort grounds, head over to the Luxe Lounge at Spa La Costa, where you and your besties (or your bridal party, or your friends who are supporting you before you have a baby, etc.) can have your own private lounge at the spa. I mean, how many times do you get together with girlfriends at a spa only to have to share the place with a bunch of naked strangers? Better to wrap yourselves in a luxurious robe and hang out with your closest friends.

Spa La Costa recently introduced the Luxe Lounge as a relaxing private space for small groups.

This chic space was created to take the stress out of party planning for small soirees or celebrations, and can accommodate intimate parties of up to 10 guests.

The already amazing Spa La Costa offers this private space for groups of 6 to 10 people (not just women, but let’s be honest).  You get the use of the room for the day (set hours, contact the spa), treatments right there in the room, a big-screen TV, and food, drinks, and amenities of your choice.

I visited the Luxe Lounge with four of my blogger friends a few months ago. (Here is Candice Kahn’s write up at Fashionably Organized.) We were welcomed with a Bellini bar, a full spread of healthy and delicious lunch items, a candy bar that was done up in shades of pink and white, and the Sex and the City movie playing on the big screen. I’m not gonna lie. I teared up all over again when Big left Carrie at the altar. Maybe it was just the Bellinis…

I was the only dork who didn’t bring my phone into the room. Hello, it’s a spa, a place to relax, so I didn’t want the stress of feeling like I needed to take a ton of pictures. Besides, I was getting a neck and foot massage and drinking champagne at 1pm. Also, we were all in robes and bathing suits, and I figured my friends would all shy away from the camera. I was wrong.
