When you need a battery recharge in the Puerto Rican capital, there are some truly star spas to revive your post-partying limbs. Are you going to take it lying down? Of course you are.

The Puerto Rican capital likes to live it up, but it also knows you’re here to relax and recharge. Which explains the wide choice of spas in the city – depending where you book you’ll find newer treatments (hydrotherapy, oxygen bars, LED light therapy) as well as the traditional massages, manicures and pedicures. Whether you’ve come to Puerto Rico specifically to flop in a pamper-zone, or merely need an afternoon’s rejuvenation, we know the best spas in San Juan – and if you want to overnight here, you can book your stay with Culture Trip.

The Spa at Condado Vanderbilt – one of the top-rated spas in San Juan – majors in face and body treatments, couples sessions and body wraps. The rooms are therapy in themselves, all calming grey marble walls and floors, and the steam room, as well as the dry and wet sauna, have legions of fans. This spa is one of the luxury Condado Vanderbilt hotel’s main draws, and among its special treatments is the Hammam Ritual, an experience that borrows from an ancient purification ritual – featuring dry exfoliation and a moisturizing bubble shower.

Spread over one floor of the city’s five-star Fairmont is this temple to wellness, popular for its CBD massages and especially its varied facial treatments.

The tagline here is “where heaven meets earth, water meets wellness, and rest meets rejuvenation.” They’ve got a point – the lobby is celestial, brightly lit with soothing blue walls, and the spa services are divided into three sections: rest, rejuvenate and restore. The rest services include a Heaven on Earth massage with a full-body wrap and your choice of Swedish or deep tissue massage. Rejuvenate services include three types of facials, and the unique “rebirthing” waterology experience falls under the restore services.

Ever heard of a dual-purpose spa and cocktail lounge? That’s the deal here, on Calle del Cristo in Old San Juan. The spa radiates character, all black and white marble floors, earth-colored walls and vivid hanging lanterns. Services range from manicures and pedicures to facials and body waxing. Arrive fashionably late and you can slide into after-hours cocktails with the locals, getting your nails buffed as you sip on a mojito from the bar, or order some tasty pho.

Euforia

We’re always drawn to this upscale stand-alone spa in Condado – it calls itself a Beauty Cafe, which means freshen-ups for men and women and, crucially, cappuccinos, bakery bites, juices, wine and champagne. The snazzy purple-and-white interior radiates fresh appeal, and there are seemingly limitless manicure and pedicure treatments – try a jelly pedicure, soaking your feet in wonderful warm, wobbly stuff, rich in natural oils and plant extracts.

Corpo Bello Spa

Just beyond Old San Juan, Corpo Bello Spa is the place for expert skin treatments – laser hair removal, for instance, and laser facials. The spa is also a hit with its thermal whirlpool tub and sauna. Massages push the boat out with special numbers including a three-hour couples massage, destined to leave you and your partner like putty. Short on time? Book the 2-hour mini day spa – you’ll get a massage, hydrating facial, whirlpool-tub soak and a glass of champagne.

The Zen Spa Oceano is the big pull at the upscale Caribe Hilton resort in San Juan, with a spa menu big on familiar services – with an added twist. Take the Perfect Duo: it’s a combination aromatherapy Swedish and Shiatsu massage. Or how about a body wrap called Paprika Twist that uses the localized spice to treat cellulite? Earth tones typify the decor, with splashes of emerald and gold – and of course it doesn’t hurt that the spa occupies an iconic San Juan hotel.
