|3. Spa Montage – Beverly Hills, California –The Spa Montage is a large, two story spa located in the affluent Beverly Hills, just blocks from Rodeo Drive.

The spa has 17 treatment rooms with a lavish bathing grotto that is filled with mineral-rich water, and lit above by a skylight. The oasis has a loft-like feel with many places for private lounging in the coed environment. Treatments include a signature 2.5 hr Surrender treatment that is personalized to each guest. Based on the holistic approach, treatments are inspired by water, earth, orchids, touch therapies, and facial therapies.
