At Estéban restaurant, guests will enjoy Spanish-California cuidine featuring fresh, locally sourced ingredients and an outdoor patio with a fire pit. The full-service spa is perfect for unwinding and relaxing. Spa Director Dona Helm fills us in on how to get the most out of your experience at The Spa At Casa Munras.
Why You’ll Love It: Guests love our massage services—particularly our couple’s massage in our couple’s treatment suite with private jacuzzi tub. Guests also love the relaxing spa garden, which includes a jacuzzi tub and waterfall.
Key Features: Outside jacuzzi tub with waterfall garden, locker rooms with showers, bath amenities including hair dryers, and four large treatment rooms perfect for couples or for sharing with friends.
Insider’s Tip: The spa always has a special of the month, so be sure to ask what it is. June’s special is a facial, massage or scrub summer special, which is a 45-minute package that includes either a hydrating facial, relaxing sanctuary massage, or scrub! Our skilled technicians will create a sanctuary away from the stress of everyday life. Deep tissue is available for an additional $10. It includes a cheese and cracker plate to enjoy by the waterfall spa, as well as access to the pool and waterfall spa from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. (24-hour notice required). It costs $99 per person.
Spa Snacks: Guests can order from a selection of items from our onsite restaurant, Estéban Restaurant. We also have our special spiced tea available daily.
Splurge Treatment: The Oceana Spa Day (4 hours / $520) is our signature spa getaway package. Wash away your stress and set sail with our Oceana Spa Day. Your voyage begins with a two-hour massage service that includes a seawater wrap and scrub, a 30-minute Marine Mud Foot Detox and a seawater scalp treatment. The last leg of our journey will involve our ultimate 90-minute facial and seaweed-infused wax mask, both with extractions and a plumping lip treatment.
Insider’s Favorite: The Peaceful Body Treatment. Relying on the power of plant extracts and essential oils, this botanically-based treatment deeply relaxes the body while also quieting the mind. Passionflower extract has long been touted as an age-old solution for relieving tension, reducing stress, and even offsetting anxiety. Using potent passionflower paired with fragrant magnolia, this treatment leaves you feeling relaxed and renewed. The service includes a full-body scrub followed by a massage with passionflower balm, creating a peaceful fragrant venture for your skin. 60 min/ $125 (30-minute scrub + 30-minute application of hydrating cream) 90 min / $180 (30-minute scrub + 60-minute application of cream during massage).
There is also the XMF Extreme Facial (90 min./$185), an ultra-pampering combination of a relaxing back massage and a super luxurious facial that leaves your head and neck relaxed and the skin plump, smooth, and lifted! The hero in this treatment is Morio Orchid oil paired with Dictyopteris, a brown algae that mimics hyaluronic acid to instantly volumize deep lines. Our secret to lifting the face and jowls lies within the facial massage techniques that create a muscle response at the ear to elevate tired muscles of the face. A gentle lip exfoliation and mask softens the contours of the mouth, resulting in a kissable, fuller pout. Dive right into serious pampering with this 90-minute treat!
