Hotel ZaZa Houston 

Situated in the heart of Houston’s Museum District, Hotel ZaZa’s in-house spa, ZaSpa, is an over-the-top escape (think gilded mirrors and velvet upholstery with leopard print) designed to transport guests with services to unite the body, mind and spirit. Holistic and modern healing techniques are both used here—the spa has infrared saunas and incorporates botanical products in its customized facials, massages and exfoliating treatments. Whether you opt for the cleverly named massages (prenatal massages are called Who’s Your Daddy; a detoxifying session is titled The Morning After) or the age-reversing facials, ZaSpa promises to have you rejuvenated.

The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa

Just outside of the Loop, near Memorial Park, The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa is a true Texas resort, with historic buildings situated on 27 beautifully landscaped acres. Its spa, Trellis Spa at the Houstonian, has a Mediterranean ambiance in a newly upgraded space.

Trellis offers all the services you might expect: manicures and pedicures, facials, massages and body treatments (like scrubs and body-sculpting wraps), plus packages that bundle several services for a day away. But what makes The Houstonian’s spa special is its Soaking Pools & Garden, an outdoor retreat built for contrast bathing with a hot tub, ambient pool and cold shower, surrounded by plush lounge and rocking chairs, cabanas and verdant gardens. The Tranquility Room and Reflection Pool are restful sanctuaries to be enjoyed before or after spa treatments, and the locker rooms are outfitted with jetted tubs, showers and steam rooms.

Omni Houston Hotel

Uptown's Omni Houston Hotel houses the Mokara Spa & Salon—a reimagined eight-room day spa with a relaxation room and a full-service hair and nail salon. Its sleek, contemporary design of wood and white ceramic elements make it easy to forget the world outside.

In addition to the spa’s relaxation lounge, visitors will enjoy access to the two on-site outdoor pools and a fitness center that features treadmills, free weights and Peloton bikes. Guests can unwind with treatments like facials, massages and scrubs either as individual services or cleverly combined with names like Cowboys and Cowgirls Massages (a couples massage) or Jet-Lag Relief, an invigorating massage enhancement designed for weary travelers.

Four Seasons Hotel Houston

Synonymous with luxury, the Four Seasons Hotel Houston is in the heart of downtown. The hotel spa here is no exception, offering the type of elegance you’d expect from the brand. Its recently refurbished fourth floor is home to the 2,500-square-foot fitness center, adjacent pool with expansive city views and the spa. The spa has a neutral and minimalist feel with plenty of space for guests to feel pampered. Massages range from deep tissue to prenatal, and there’s a range of scrubs on the menu that use scents like rose, citrus and vanilla.

In an area lined with massage chairs, guests can get deluxe mani-pedis or treat themselves to detoxifying facials that use raw, organic plant-based skincare products from Laurel Skin. If you're looking for a romantic spa day package, consider the unique Night Spa option, which gives couples private use of the entire spa from 7-10 p.m. and access to 100 minutes of services including a body scrub and massage, followed by bites from Toro Toro and a bottle of Champagne. You also get to keep the robes!
