If you’re looking for the perfect vacation or even staycation, Shutters at the Beach Resort in Santa Monica, California is the perfect escape.  One of the great features at Shutters in their luxury day spa called “ONE SPA.”  Recently, “ONE SPA” added some new Kerstin Florian Treatments to their spa menu, making their selection of offerings even more pampering and luxe.   If you read here, you know I am a lover of Kerstin Florian products and treatments. The products are gentle and organic, offering amazing skincare and revitalizing scents and oils.   The new treatments are all about exfoliation, cleansing, relaxation and renewal, set in the beautiful spa environment at Shutters at the Beach.

“We are thrilled to partner with this renowned, nature inspired line that is refreshingly local while also embodying everything we are passionate about,” said ONE Spa Director Rachel Stacy. “Our Kerstin Florian menu serves as an organic evolution in our continued commitment to innovative beauty, offering guests an experience that goes beyond the external treatment with a transcendent journey from head to toe.”

I stopped by Shutters at the Beach a few weeks ago to receive a press preview of the Kerstin Florian treatments and was thoroughly impressed. I received an amazing hand & arm massage with the Kerstin Florian oils that was perfect for a working professional spending many long hours typing on a computer.


Shutters at the Beach in Santa Monica now has a speciality blue nail polish available from Essie at their spa.

Customer Service Sets ONE Spa Apart
During my visit to Shutters, I had the opportunity to meet with the spa director, the assistant spa director and several of the masseuses.   There’s a dedication to quality and customer service here that really sets this spa apart.  Los Angeles is full of luxury day spas from the Valley to Beverly Hills, there are literally hundreds of choices.   The caring and welcoming attitude of the spa staff at ONE Spa is definitely a competitive differentiator.  The staff is not just trading on the beautiful location or the ocean views, they are really striving to deliver customer service. ONE Spa is busy year round, so if you’re interested in getting a service, book early, especially during the summer vacation months.  It’s a popular location or wedding parties and girls spa day vacations.
