Magazine Spring Event , which yours truly never misses, was certainly a star-struck affair featuring headliner spas and cosmetics companies gathered at the posh Montage Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Huntingon Spa at the Langham Huntingon formerly a Ritz Carlton (where I’ve spa-ed happily in the past), talked about the spa’s facelift and the Chaun Body + Soul philosophy that incorporates traditional Chinese medicine (acupuncture and cupping) for a holistical experience. www.thehuntingtonspa.com.
Until last night I was unfamiliar with Kohler Waters Spa. I’d heard of the company but dnot the spa which is actually 10 years old and focuses on, you guess it, water treatments that cleanse the mind and body. www.destinationkohler.com.
One healthy getaway I am very familiar with, The Spa at The Grand Del Mar, touted the variety of natural therapies gleaned from resources of near by Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve (which we checked out and hiked through on our last visit). This is one fab spa with top notch treatments. www.thegranddelmar.com.
And the host hotel, Montage, escorted guests to their spiffy spa for a salubrious hand, exfoliation treatment.
