I went on vacation at the end of June 2014 with my girlfriend to Newport Beach. Along the way I surprised her with a couples massage at Skinsations Spa. I was nervous and worried because I have never set up a Spa day and had no clue as to what I was doing. I called a couple days before and set up a couples massage. When we arrived in the parking lot let me tell you, I got worried because this place did not look like much from the outside! I guess it is that whole never judge a book by it's cover cliché because from the moment we walked in it was wonderful! The reception area had a nice welcoming feel to it with soft music and a water fountain. The receptionist were very helpful and walked us through filling out the first time guest paperwork. Once we were ready, they walked us to the back and from the moment we stepped through the door into the massage area, it felt like we were transformed to a peaceful island. The lighting, music and décor was so relaxing and welcoming. They have free snacks and drinks for you to have at anytime. A makeup and styling area for your lady when she is done and ready to leave. Separate areas for what type of treatments you are getting. It was a first for both of us getting a massage and we loved it. After changing we entered a room and enjoyed hot tea while having a foot soak. After our soaking our massage therapists came and led us to the couples room. They are separate but right next to each other and it has blinds and a window so we could see each other and talk if we liked. We both enjoyed our massage. This Spa is very professional and polite to privacy. They make sure your mid section is covered the entire time. The aroma of lavender was very relaxing during the massage. After the massage you are taken to a nap room with soft cushions and can relax until you want to leave. All in all we both give this place five stars. It was by far a wonderful experience we would both like to have again. I recommend Skinsations for anyone looking for a relaxing and stress free time. When you leave they have a card and thank you note from the therapist along with a gift for you. We will definitely be returning here on our next trip out to the beach!
