At Aviara Spa, wellness is personal. Spa director Kyra Johnson’s revolutionary new concept brings the client directly the into creative process. The highly-skilled therapists are committed to personalizing wellness rituals, inviting guests to create their very own spa experience within 60 or 90 minutes. After a brief consultation, Aviara Spa therapists will recommend a customized treatment tailored to each guest’s specific needs. Whether it is a therapeutic massage, rehydrating body wrap, and an anti-aging eye treatment, or an invigorating sports bath followed by a foot cleansing treatment, no two treatments are ever alike.

Immersed in the peace and natural beauty of coastal Carlsbad, Aviara Spa features a sun-drenched solarium lounge, expansive fitness center, indoor whirlpools, sauna, and steam rooms. An exclusive indoor/outdoor suite epitomizes the ideal setting for a romantic escape, girlfriend getaway, anniversary, or bridal shower. Following treatments, guests are invited to retire to the adults-only Tranquility Pool for reflection, light fare, and majestic views overlooking the Pacific. (760/603-6902, www.parkhyattaviara.com)
