The Nob Hill Spa inside the Scarlet Huntington is a perennial pick on every best-spas-in-San-Francisco list. Sleek facilities. Jaw-dropping views. What's not to love? When you want a day of luxe pampering, this will always be a contender. Luxury, however, doesn't come cheap. So if your credit card limit is the only thing coming between you and one of the Nob Hill Spa's signature treatments, you'l be delighted to hear that the spa is turning back the hands of (pricing) time for one day only.
This week is the spa's 15th anniversary. To celebrate, it's offering a flashback to 2000, honoring original pricing on all-time favorite services such as the Longevity Relaxation Massage ($110, usually $135), Organic Lavender Sugar Scrub ($110, usually $140), and European Facial ($120, usually $145). The catch? Early-aughts pricing is only applicable on Thursday, January 15th.
If you can't make it on Thursday, Nob Hill Spa is also offering spa series packages throughout January for $1,100 in the following combinations: ten 50 minute massages, ten 50 minute facials, and ten mixed treatments (five massages, three facials, and two body treatments).
To save you the trouble of opening your calculator app, you would save $250 by purchasing a ten-pack of massages, or $350 when purchasing a ten-pack of facials, which is an improvement over the regularly-offered six-pack series. Of course, the multipack assumes that you have $1,100 that you want to commit to spa treatments right now, which is pretty steep. But if you're in a treat yo-self mood, this is a way to save a little while splurging.
