Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only book on the subject fully illustrated with color photographs, this wonderful introduction to taking the waters is both a practical travel guide for visitors and an inspirational picture-book that is a joy to peruse. From exclusive spas to quaint historic hot springs, Beautiful Spas and Hot Springs of California covers more than 20 heavenly retreats. Author Stanley Young reviews the philosophy of each, from opulent European-style spas that offer indulgent pampering, to fitness spas that add exercise and movement classes to the mix of massage, aromatherapy, facials, and body wraps. Melba Levick's photographs capture the natural beauty of the baths, and the spectacular surrounding landscape. From the North Coast to the Mojave Desert, these are the hideaways where magic happens.

Book News Annotation:

Describes 21 hot spring-based spas and retreats throughout the state, from affordable to exclusive. A bit heavy on promotional adjectives, but the lush color photos do make mud look amazingly tempting. A map showing the spa locations would have been helpful.
