Lemon And Honey Day Spa
It’s honestly a toss-up which of the services this cute spa offers is the best. Everything they do, from the relaxing facials to the relaxation room with its warm blankets, foot soak, and relaxing cup of tea, is top-notch.
Lemon and Honey has a straightforward pamper-you policy that shows in everything about the spa, from the soothing color scheme to the Eminence-brand facial products and the high-quality essential oils to soothe body and soul during your treatment.

This hidden gem has picked up on the arty vibes that nearby Bowers Museum gives off… it’s an amazing oasis of tranquility that looks like it’s more at home somewhere in a Shangri-la fantasy than in Southern California.
But if it was in Shangri-la, you’d have to book a ticket to Tibet to go there… thankfully, you just have to hop over to Santa Ana.
Montanya Spa’s mission is to help you achieve the perfect balance of beauty, balance, and well-being. This business is located in a beautiful converted house, which allows Montanya to have something not every day spa has… a tranquil patio overlooking their zen-inspired garden for you to relax in.
Montanya Spa is an all-inclusive spa experience, and you get the same high quality of service whether you book a 30-minute petite refresher facial or take a Day Trip to the Heavens. It’s a little piece of zen paradise right here in SoCal that’s easy to afford and even easier to find.

Aarna Spa at Pasea
The Aarna at Pasea is a true resort spa, since it’s attached to the famous Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach. And if you’re looking for true luxury, you’ve definitely found it.
The Aarna Spa is a 5,800 square foot oasis of tranquility that locals and hotel guests alike can enjoy. The elegant facility has valet parking, its own private garden with water feature and private cabanas, a relaxation lounge that will melt your stress away just looking at it, and men’s and women’s facilities. Enjoy the sauna, tranquil eucalyptus steam room, and a salt-water whirlpool (hint: don’t wear a new bathing suit in the saltwater, as the fabric will fade).
Everything about the Aarna Spa is calculated for maximum positivity and relaxation, from their choice of tasty snacks and heated massage tables to their soothing Balinese décor, but their massages are equally amazing.
Aarna Spa offers a full menu of interesting stone and salt massages, such as the Lavender Dream massage where you get a full-body exfoliation with Turkish salt crystals and lavender, then a neck and shoulder massage with lavender oil and warm stones. Service is friendly and professional with all the skill you’d expect from a luxury spa.
