Surprise your significant other with a rejuvenating day, filled with candles, a couples massage and stunning views. The Dallas-Fort Worth area plays host to a plethora of relaxing retreats, which meet these romance requirements. To help you narrow down your options, we've handpicked five spas who've created treatments with couples in mind.
Luxury for Lovebirds
“Massage allows your body to produce and release more OxyContin, a natural substance sometimes called ‘the love hormone,’” the Riviera Spa states. Which explains why it offers a luxurious couples massage experience, centered around cementing bonds and renewing “the spice in a romantic relationship.” Partners are invited to book a 50- or 80-minute session at the boutique day spa. Once they arrive, the twosome will make their way to a suite dripping with candles and rose petals, where they can relax with a massage and lounge beside a roaring fire.
A Pampered Pair
Located on the fourth floor of the Omni Dallas Hotel, the Mokara Salon & Spa is the perfect place to spend a pampered day with your partner. Each treatment starts in its relaxation room, which boasts phenomenal views of downtown. During a couples' massage, Mokara claims its “therapists’ expert touch will encourage new heights of relaxation while strengthening your closeness.” The soothing treatment can be enjoyed from 20- to 100-minutes. Lovebirds who book a treatment Monday through Thursday can head to the rooftop and take a dip in Omni’s heated, therapeutic infinity pool to top off their date.
Treatments for Two
“Share the love” at Green Lotus Spa & Retreat. The spa is well-known for its focus on holistic wellness and treatments from around the world. In addition, Green Lotus is recognized for its eco-conscious practices—such as its paperless system and using a wind turbine for power—allowing couples to feel good about feeling good. Couples who purchase its Share the Love treatment will experience a traditional Swedish massage alongside the person they love most. 50- and 80-minute sessions are available. As Dallas’ first completely eco-friendly spa, Green Lotus invites couples to come by and learn the benefits of “green” living.
A Massage With Your Mate
Indulge alongside your partner at the V-Spa, located inside the Verandah Club at the Hilton Anatole. Here, visitors can pair up for a massage of their choice. When selecting a treatment, why not look for a classic romantic element: wine? Choose the Vino-Therapy Massage, a Swedish massage paired with a Chardonnay grape seed oil. Tandem sessions are 50- or 80-minutes and vary in price, depending on the treatment chosen. Couples can also go their own way for face and body treatments, such as the Gentleman’s Facial or a seasonally-themed wrap.
Calm Beside Your Companion
Uptown Dallas may be bustling; but lovebirds nestled inside The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas experience nothing but serenity. Whether you and your partner are looking to have a stress relief, deep tissue, relaxation, naturally nurtured or reflexology massage, the Ritz has a tandem massage to fit the bill. Sessions range from 50- to 80- to 100-minutes and are held in a VIP room for two. Couples who’ve spent every minute together since arriving in Dallas may choose to book separate Texas inspired treatments, such as Dean’s Margarita Salt Glow (also available in the couples suite) or the Texas Transformation—meeting up immediately after for more time together, of course.
