1. Golden Door

Let sparks fly this Valentine’s Day with an entire evening of indulgence at Golden Door. Start your night in the Japanese formal garden, where chef Greg Fray Jr. will prepare a private dinner for two featuring Champagne, savory wines and beautiful roses. Postnosh, relish in the sumptuous Good Vibrations couples massage, which combines your choice of hypnotic aromas and luminous oils for the ultimate back, neck and scalp treatment. Pro tip: Opt to have your massages beneath the stars in the hotel’s new outdoor Starlight Massage pagoda, built with COVID-19 safety in mind. 777 Deer Springs Road, San Marcos, 760.744.5777

2. Spa Pendry

Whether you’re spending Feb. 14 with your significant other or with your “galentines,” Spa Pendry’s lineup of special treatments has something for everyone. For couples, we recommend the 90-or 120-minute Couples’ Retreat, a sensual rose foot bath ritual enhanced by the aromatics of candles and rose-infused massage oil, which is enjoyed from the lavish couples’ suite. For the Galentine’s Day celebrators, the spa is offering two exorbitant treatments you can’t pass on: The Girlfriends’ Spa Day includes a 60-minute body scrub and Hydrate + Regenerate facial, plus a lunch credit at The Pool House; and, our favorite, the Queen for the Day, a two-hour Pendry Rose Ritual, a 60-minute Hydrate + Regenerate facial, a gemstone and collagen face mask, and CBD therapy, plus two glasses of bubbly, a lunch credit at The Pool House and a discount at the spa boutique. 550 J. St., Gaslamp Quarter, 619.738.7065

3. SKIN in the Ranch

As the only San Diego-based spa offering Biologique Recherche treatments, SKIN is known for opulent offerings. This Valentine’s Day, founder Kris Martone and her expert team of therapists are kicking it up a notch—from luxury skin and body treatments for the happy couple to rose petal and lavender foot massages for the single gals and guys. Even better, each soothing treatment can be enjoyed with a chilled glass of rosé and decadent chocolate strawberries—you certainly deserve it. 16921 Via De Santa Fe, Ste.
