Spa treatments
for couples

These relaxing getaways are just what the Love Doctor ordered. Put a little spring in your relationship step with a romantic couple's spa treatment.

Excellence Playa Mujeres

Excellence Playa Mujeres

About 20 minutes north of Cancun's crowded hotel zone sits Excellence Playa Mujeres. The all-inclusive luxury resort is situated on an untouched stretch of peninsula, between the shining Caribbean and a quiet wetland preserve. It's this serene location that serves as the perfect backdrop to Miilé Spa. An island of relaxation and romance, Miilé Spa is a dreamlike escape characterized by flowing white curtains and neutral tones. Book the "Humanity Ceremony for Two" and you'll enjoy a private ritual in the Mud Therapy Room that includes a bubbling vanilla and orange bath, hand and scalp massage, and hydrating wrap. Arrive early to your couple's spa treatment to enjoy Miilé's signature hydrotherapy circuit, which features an authentic Swedish sauna, Roman caldarium and more.

The Ocean House

The Ocean House

At The Ocean House in Rhode Island, the Atlantic Ocean isn't just a part of your view from the 12,000-square-foot OH! Spa. It's a part of your experience. The spa's menu of seasonal treatments incorporates local ingredients from the ocean and harvest. During the romantic "Time Together Retreat," summon balance and harmony with an invigorating coffee scrub followed by a mineral-rich soak for nourished skin. At the end, a 90-minute massage covers you head-to-toe in wild lime silk oil for energy and tangerine fig cream for a fresh, radiant glow.

The Allison Inn & Spa

The Allison Inn & Spa

The Ever-After Couples Treatment at The Allison Inn & Spa is fit for royalty. Begin your romantic journey with a 60-minute "Delectable Body Wrap for Two" in scents like chocolate truffle and cucumber mint. Blissful pampering continues with a 90-minute couples massage, choice of garden manicure or pedicure, and a spa lunch complete with decadent treats and long-stem rose. Created by Executive Chef Sunny Jin, the spa's light fare includes items straight from the on-site garden. After four hours of total indulgence, lounge on the spa terrace amid Oregon's lush Willamette Valley.

Royal Palms Resort and Spa

Royal Palms Resort and Spa

Named one of the "Top 50 Romantic Retreats" in the world by Travel + Leisure, Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, is a Mediterranean-inspired hideaway at the base of the city's famed Camelback Mountain. With unique treatments surrounding its signature neroli scent, quaint Alvadora Spa exudes Old World charm. Live like royalty during the 80-minute Citrus Ritual in the Acqua Dolce spa suite that begins with an exfoliating body therapy and gently cascading water. Rinse in an 8-foot outdoor waterfall shower before settling into an herbal whirlpool bath with citrus soak. Overlooking a private garden, sip Champagne and ease away tension while the therapist preps for your grand finale – a gentle and hydrating honey and orange blossom massage.

Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat

Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat

Why not turn your couple's spa treatment into a full on adventure? Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat on Australia's Gold Coast is a lux eco compound in the region's stunning heartland that's co-owned by a famous Aussie, Hugh Jackman. Book a spa weekend at Gwinganna and you'll get organic meals and snacks straight from the on-site garden, morning coffee, evening wine, plus educational walks with a resident botanist. And, of course, a $250 spa credit to use on treatments like the Lotus Lullaby, a blissful combination of head, back, foot and hand massage.

What a great way for couples to pamper themselves! These romantic spas look like perfect places to go to relax and get away from it all. My husband and I have our 10th wedding anniversary coming up and a trip to one of these spas would be the perfect way to celebrate. Thanks!

I would LOVE to stay at any of these places with my husband someday! I think if couples were able to have spa days together once a year to relax and get away, people would be a lot happier!
