Sure, a massage sounds great, but why not try an elaborate and unique treatment that goes above and beyond the call of pampering. Sit back, close your eyes and let the experts work their magic.

Chicago Exotic Spa Treatments


Elysian Spa & Health Club

11 E Walton St, Chicago, IL 60611

Experience pampering (and much-needed detoxing) from head to toe with the Elysian cleanse. The two-hour spa treatment doesn't miss a spot with its full-body steam and exfoliation, lemon and rosemary sea-salt body scrub, rain shower, massage with seaweed gel and full body wrap, plus a facial, eye treatment, foot massage, scalp treatment and full-body moisturizing treatment. ($330)


Spa at Trump

401 N Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60611

Feet have never felt so neat. The 60-minute Crystal Divine pedicure starts with a callus-removing serum, aloe vera mask and sugar scrub and is followed by a quartz-infused oil massage before your toes are buffed and polished to perfection. And they should be, for the price tag that comes with it. ($90)


Red Door Spas

919 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611

Try out a star treatment with the dual-tip microdermabrasion treatment--which uses real diamonds and crushed flower petals to achieve the ultimate in smooth skin perfection. Your skin will feel smooth as a baby's bottom. ($175)


Spa At Four Seasons Hotel

120 E Delaware Pl, Chicago, IL 60611

The luxe Perle de Caviar Facial employs an exotic formula of real caviar and pearl proteins that hydrate and smooth the skin, nurturing a star-studded healthy glow. Afterward, enjoy a glass of Champagne and caviar canapes in the spa's relaxation lounge to cap off the day of luxury. ($140)


Peninsula Spa Chicago Hotels

108 East Superior Street, Chicago, IL 60611

The Uplifting Mint Experience is the ultimate treatment for the senses. After a ceremonial foot ritual using mint grown in the Midwest, skin is buffed to silk-like smoothness with a mint and apricot kernel body scrub--and that's just the beginning. Stress-relieving massage techniques are combined with mint-spiked oil and a relaxing head massage to ensure there's no way you're leaving that spa with an ounce of tension left in your body. ($295)
