Readers' Choice: Where is the Most Relaxing Spa in Santa Cruz?

Here's a perfect Mother's Day gift idea....


What does you mother want most, besides flowers and dinner? A day off at the spa.

Luckily Santa Cruz has some great ones, and a gift certificate to one would brighten her day.

Start with a great view of the Bay and add a 12-page menu of spa possibilities including a Mimosa Champagne Massage, Organic Mud Wrap, Sea Enzyme Facial, Organic Blueberry slimming Scrub & Wrap. Then, if she wants some togetherness, you can meet for drinks or dinner at this luxurious resort.

It's hard to believe this place is downtown, but once you enter, surrounded by a bamboo garden, all cares slip away. There are private rooms, steam baths and saunas and all kinds of massage possibilities.

  You can enjoy private spas and saunas that overlook a beautiful, calming Japanese garden and then choose a  Deep-Tissue, Shiatsu, Cranial-Sacral or other style of massage. Throw in a facial or body wrap and you've achieved that feeling of well within.

Modeled after a Japanese bath house, Kiva has public and private spaces with hot tubs, a sauna and scrumptious gardens. The masseuses are among the Bay Area's best.

  There is a facial designed specially for your skin type and a variety of massage styles such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, and a special Motherhood Massage. Other services include waxing, manicures, pedicures, cosmetic injections, peels, tinting and laser hair removal.

Chaminade is a truly special experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my spa day there last week!
