Chicago is known for its bustling energy but sometimes we all need a break. Day spas provide much-needed respite from the chaos, whether it’s just an hour service or an entire day.
Facials, hot stone massages or time in the relaxation lounge can help rejuvenate our tired bodies and brains. Many spas offer additional services such as yoga classes or fitness centers.
If you’re in the Magnificent Mile or downtown Chicago, The Spa at Trump or the Spa at the Peninsula Hotel offer five star service with a five star price tag. Mario Tricoci is conveniently located on the Mg Mile and Kiva Day Spa is just down the block. A 5 minute and easy cab ride away is Allyu Spa in the River North area which features a beautiful meditation area in a natural environment. Just west of the Loop is Kaya Day Spa with a delightful artisanal grocery store on the first floor.
About 30 minutes away, oddly located in a strip mall with a Home Depot and Korean grocery store as its neighbors is King Spa, a traditional Korean Spa that features nine unique saunas for a price that can’t be beat.
Finally, a good 45 minutes away but worth every minute of the trek is Yoga 360 in suburban Frankfort. Granted, you’re out of the city by that point and the question after a treatment here is whether you’re ever going to return.
