We stayed at the Monterey Plaza Hotel for a long weekend (from Thursday to Sunday) to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. I made reservations for a couples massage prior to coming to the hotel for Saturday. After checking in to the hotel, we arrived to our room and went back down stairs to explore the hotel. On the way, I... More

Lovely spa with great offerings. Very nice people and practitioners. My daughter had a facial and my husband and I had massages - we all left feeling better and relaxed. The amenities are lovely and for a hotel spa I thought the pricing was very good. If you're staying at The Plaza you would be missing out if you didn't... More

I have had numerous treatments in the Vista Blue Spa over the years, all have been exemplary. Just recently (yesterday) I enjoyed a Signature Facial from Darlene, it was AMAZING! It turns out that Darlene is also a gifted massage therapist and you can really feel her skills during the facial treatment. Not only did my skin benefit from her... More

My hubby and I were staying at the Plaza and decided to treat ourselves to the Vista Blue Spa. Hubby had the facial and back scrub while I had the Bliss on the Bay (the name itself is wonderful isn't it?). It was superb - Angela WAS THE BEST! The only reason I'm giving a 4 stars is that the...

My wife and I had a couple's hot stone massage which was easily one of the vest either of us has ever had. Then we took a soak in a private tub for two. After, we sat by their two rooftop hot tubs overlooking the bay. We took a steam and ordered food and wine. We will absolutely use them... More

After a nice lunch at Anton & Michel, we headed over to the gorgeousMonterey Plaza Hotel & Spa for a couple's bath soak. The bath is 50 minutes long and has beautiful views of the bay from the jacuzzi tub. Fresh fruit, teas and lemon water is available during your soak and afterwards you have access to the rooftop jacuzzis... More
