Spa Profile: Burke Williams Spa Santa Monica
Burke Williams Santa Monica, one of 10 Burke Williams locations in California, offers top-notch spa services in a sanctuary of wellness and beauty. Inspired by the traditions of world-class European day spas, Burke Williams is dedicated to relaxation and renewal. Beamed ceilings, elegant rugs and candle sconces set the tone for the soothing spa atmosphere. Mike Essa, General Manager at Burke Williams Santa Monica, gives us an insider’s look at the beautiful Zen-like Santa Monica spa.
Why You’ll Love It: At Burke Williams Santa Monica, our guests love our commitment to creating a long-term wellness relationship. It extends beyond their first visit. In order to customize each guest’s individual needs, our amazing staff excels at uncovering those unique requests.
Key Features: We have a large co-ed lounge for socializing, separate spa amenities for men and women, whirlpools, steam room, dry sauna, cool misting room and private showers. Santa Monica offers private locker rooms for our male and female Beyond members, and two whirlpools in the women’s spa—one for quiet socializing, the other a Zen spa for that silent escape. You’ll also find separate quiet rooms for men and women, where reading, relaxing and silence prevail.
Bonus: We are committed to making sure we provide unique and consistent experiences for all our guests, throughout each day. As we learn what special occasions they are celebrating, we personalize their day by setting aside a private space and provide them with a complimentary glass of champagne and fresh fruit. We call this a “Wow” experience!
Spa Snacks: Our guests always have access to fresh iced spa water, unique seasonal teas, ice cold lemonade and fresh fruit.
Splurge Treatment: I would wholeheartedly recommend any of our luxurious Wetroom treatments where guests can shift into a place of tranquil beauty.
The soothing treatment begins with an exfoliating scrub, then they are cleansed with wheat stalks soaked in exotic essential oils while cascades of warm water immerse the entire body. I invite guests to step in, melt away tension, and then let our Wetroom Treatments transition them into a relaxed, radiant self.
Insider’s Favorite: By far my favorite treatment is one of our Wetroom Treatments—Savannah’s Surrender!
