New Year’s Intentions for a Memorable 2018
Start your New Year off right by experiencing some of Beverly Hills' services and amenities designed to have you looking and feeling your very best inside and out. Following are a few ideas to consider to help make 2018 an unforgettable year.
A New Year For a New You
Reserve a day of rejuvenation at the award winning Spa Montage at Montage Beverly Hills and book the “Day of Indulgence Spa Experience.” Start with a 60-minute signature body massage, followed by a 60-minute Spa Montage customized facial, concluding with a perfectly polished manicure and pedicure. Once you’ve been transformed from head to toe, spend the rest of the day enjoying the spa’s Turkish steam rooms or take a dip in the sky-lit mineral pool, where you can unwind, lounge and relax for a few hours. The spa package also includes a $30 dining credit to be used at The Rooftop Grill.
Beverly Hills is also home to a variety of nail, make-up and hair services for a quick pick-me-up or an entire makeover. Treat yourself with “The Olive” manicure at Olive & June, where the nail specialists take the time to learn about your hands, nails, cuticle health and manicure preferences. The salon is designed with vibrant white walls and pops of warm rose colors, helping you relax while Olive & June’s specialists skillfully tend to your hands and feet. For a full celebrity-style experience, BLOWN on Canon offers a wide range of haircuts, blow-dry and make-up services sure to refresh your style. Get a nourishing Keratin Treatment for your locks, followed by a blow-dry and a full makeover, and you just might find paparazzi giving you a double take as you walk out of the salon. Or visit the Bobbi Brown boutique on South Santa Monica Boulevard to indulge in the brand’s full collection of cosmetics, skincare, beauty tools, fragrances and exclusives. The shop is equipped with multiple makeup stations, a brow bar and even a coffee and snack bar for you to enjoy as you meet with a makeup artist who will help you select the perfect shades and textures for your night on the town.
Renew Your Romance
What better way to start off 2018 than with your special someone? Whisk them away for a romantic getaway at The Beverly Hilton. With deluxe hotel accommodations, premier service and breakfast available overlooking the pool at CIRCA 55 Restaurant, this hotel has all the ingredients to rekindle your relationship. During the day, walk around the city, reserve a couple’s massage or enjoy a picnic in Beverly Canon Gardens. For dinner, head to The Palm and split any of their classic Italian dishes, such as the Veal Marsala or the Linguine and Clams Sauce, both family recipes since 1926.
If you’re craving a more intimate dinner, head over to Il Cielo, which welcomes couples with its tranquil gardens and enchanting ambiance. The restaurant serves delicious Italian cuisine and offers romantic packages that add fresh rose petals, candlelight and a heart-shaped chocolate cake to any dinner reservation.
If you simply want to surprise your better half with sweets, a box of handmade Edelweiss Chocolates is sure to put a smile on their face. A Beverly Hills chocolatier tradition, Edelweiss Chocolates are known throughout the world and are available in gift boxes or individually for that perfect thoughtful gift for the one you love. If baked goods are the way to your honey’s heart, stop by any of Beverly Hills’ sweet shops or bakeries like Sprinkles, Sugarfina or Le Mervetty to find the perfect treat for that special occasion.
Have a Little More Fun!
With our busy lives, it’s easy to lose touch with even your best of friends, so resolve to make 2018 the year you plan more nights out with your nearest and dearest. Head to Citizen Beverly Hills for happy hour, Monday through Saturday, as you enjoy the restaurant’s shared plates and vibrant atmosphere. The restaurant blends a menu of eclectic American cuisine with a bar program that draws its inspiration from the 1960s and features a selection of tiki cocktails and straightforward classics. Reserve a table inside or grab a seat near the open-air fire pit for a memorable night out.
If a relaxed night with fine wines and small bites is more your speed, Wally’s Vinoteca Beverly Hills is the premier place to go. The vinoteca has 100 wines by the glass or you can purchase a bottle from its selection of 2,500 wines carefully sourced from around the globe. Gather your best friends at Wally’s and you’ll lose yourself laughing and catching up over your favorite wines, decadent cheeses and a savory charcuterie until closing time.
