Bliss Spa - The W Hotel Review

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Earlier this month, I took a pamper day to relax my mind and body after some stressful weeks. After perusing the list of offered services, I finally decided on a warm lotion manicure and a elemis exotic lime & ginger salt glow body treatment. 
The closest Bliss Spa near me is in the W hotel in downtown San Francisco. Currently, it's under a lot of construction, but thankfully it wasn't intrusive on my spa experience. Since my appointment was in the evening, the spa was quiet and almost empty, which was great to put me in a relaxed mindset. After changing into a robe and some little slippers, I headed to the lounge for some fruit infused ice water and to indulge in the array of snacks, which included delicious mini brownies. Finally, it was time for my first treatment, the elemis exotic lime & ginger salt glow. The treatment consists of 'a light body brushing, warm Japanese Camellia Oil drizzling, and top-to-bottom buffing with Elemis's lime and ginger-tinged salt scrub. Skin is left soft, smooth and read for the 'lime'-light.' This was a great treatment to get before my beach bound vacation to ensure I looked my best. It also was great to just relax my mind for an hour. After my body treatment, I took another little break in the lounge area to drink up some more water, which I was urged to do after my salt treatment. 
Next up was my warm lotion manicure. I sat down with a cup of hot orange tea and was handed a remote and a pair of headphones. Happily sated with my tea, I was even more excited to find that the spa television was playing all of season 6 of Sex and the City. After I inwardly squealed in delight, I chose my polish, Essie's Bikini So Teeny blue, and sat back to enjoy Carrie's trip to Paris and final reunion with Mr. Big. 
My overall experience with Bliss Spa was amazing! I'll have to be on the lookout for more deals on their services because I walked out a very happy camper and felt completely refreshed.
If you know of any other great Spas in San Francisco that I should try, let me know in the comments below!
