Valentine’s Day is about love, sure, but it’s also kind of about indulging, relaxing, and treating yourself—which we happen to love. As the holiday approaches, you could buy that special someone in your life a gift certificate for his or her own spa experience, but you can also get in on the goodness with a couple’s treatment. And if you don’t have a significant other? Practice some self-love and indulge in a solo spa day. The following five spas are ringing in Valentine’s Day with supremely luxe offerings for one or two people.
Take an indulgent two hours to spend, well, time together with this offering (available year-round) from The Peninsula Spa. As part of this romantic treatment, you and your significant other can get side-by-side full-body exfoliations and aromatherapy massages in a private spa suite. Extend the relaxation by booking a Half-Day Spa Retreat, which also includes lunch. Time Together ($720-$780 per couple). 108 E. Superior St, 312-573-6860
Book the “lounging in love” package at the dana hotel and spa for a relaxing and romantic staycation night. The package includes a 50-minute couples massage at the hotel’s award-winning spa, as well as a $100 dining certificate to its acclaimed restaurant, Portsmith, and in-room heart-shaped macarons from Portsmith’s pastry chefs. This festive offering is available from Feb. 9-18. Lounging in love (starting at $419). 660 N. State St., 312-202-6000

You don’t need to have a significant other to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day (or any day, for that matter). Head to Spa@theWit for some much-deserved self-care. This two-hour treatment includes a vitamin-infused massage (full of super ingredients like jojoba, sea buckthorn, and pomegranate) followed by the sweetest pedicure—literally: You’ll soak your feet in water infused with red rose extracts before they get exfoliated and then treated to a cocoa hydrating mousse. This treatment will be available throughout February. All About You Massage and Pedicure ($180). 201 N. State St, 312-239-9402
Another solid staycation option, the LondonHouse’s “Spa and Sparkling” package gives you the chance to spend the night in this endlessly chic hotel and indulge in some of its best amenities. Fuel up with the strawberries and Champagne that will greet you in your room when you check in before heading to the LH spa for some rejuvenation. You’ll get a $100 credit that you can use to treat yourself to one of the swoon-worthy services (like the Warm Honey Drizzle Massage or the Espresso Scrub, Rub, and Chug). This loveable package is available for stays from Feb. 14-18 and Feb. 22-25. Spa and Sparkling (inquire about rates). 85 E. Upper Wacker Dr., 312-357-1200
Through February, book a staycation and go all out with this comprehensive offering from Virgin Hotels Chicago, which includes not only in-room massages for two in the Sir Richard Branson’s flat suite, but also a whole lot of extra indulgences.
