Spa Dossier: California WellBeing Institute
Here are the things that I learned during my visit to California WellBeing Institute:
The property has three components that are all linked together.
- The Four Seasons Hotel
- The Spa
- The WellBeing Institute
-When you drive up to the building, you find it has a bit of an institutional look, but the inside is clearly luxurious. The backyard with pools, waterfalls, gardens, and an authentic pagoda shipped from China transport you to someplace else.
-Four Seasons standards and service lead the way and are seamlessly integrated throughout.
-The spa is lovely and has lots of marble. The treatment rooms have either patios or gardens.
-There are some beautiful couples’ suites, and the relaxation area overlooks a large garden with orchids.
-The spa is run by the Four Seasons, not by the WellBeing Institute.
-The manager of the spa used to manage Spa Mystique, Century City, which is now converting into a flagship for Equinox.
-The WellBeing Institute is managed by personnel from the California Health and Longevity Institute, which used to be in Santa Monica.
-The medical offerings are very extensive and impressive.
Think staying at a luxury hotel, enjoying treatments in a very upscale spa as well as medical tests. At the end of your stay, you have undergone an extremely thorough medical examination and enjoyed a spa vacation.
