At Escape Day Spa, luxury relaxation and respite from the outside world is the name of the game. Between the spa’s lush interior–think wood paneled walls, muted lighting, and a waiting room ceiling seemingly designed to mimic stars dotting a night sky–and the full menu of services, Escape delivers on its namesake promise of delivering guests a revitalizing and reenergizing spa escape. Treat yourself to a deep tissue massage, an oxygen infusion facial designed to increase cell metabolism, or a calming deep forest herbal soak (just to name a few of Escape’s extensive treatment offerings), and be sure to arrive early in order to take advantage of the spa’s meditation lounge, tea bar, and relaxation rooms.

Woodhouse Spa takes luxury spa service to the next level with their dedication to providing guests with the most immersive and relaxing spa experience possible. In addition to the luxuriously relaxing waiting room – complete with hot tea (or wine, if that’s more your speed) and plush robes and slippers – this ‘Wellness Sanctuary’ offers more than 70 different spa services. The spa is most well-known for its array of award-winning signature services, which include an 80-minute hydrafacial and a 110-minute all-encompassing mind-body treatment referred to simply as ‘The Woodhouse Escape’; additionally, however, Woodhouse also offers numerous other treatments, including a ‘Lavender Dreams’ sleep-improving massage and an organic seaweed body wrap.

While a slightly lesser-known option relative to many other luxury day spas in Nashville, O.Liv Body Bar is a must-visit for its plethora of unique spa services and its welcoming atmosphere. Located across the Cumberland in East Nashville, this small spa may seem unremarkable from the red-brick exterior; walk inside, however, and you will be greeted with an airy, rustic-meets-contemporary spa getaway that leaves little to complain about. A visit to O.Liv would not be complete without indulging in O.Liv’s signature DIY Mud Lounge–the only mud lounge in the entire state of Tennessee–where you will first coat yourself in organic muds before then receiving a lavender steam treatment. And if you’re searching for more traditional spa treatments, O.Liv has those covered, too, with a number of massage, facial, and body treatments to choose from.

Athenian Luxe Nail Spa

Athenian Luxe Spa‘s mission is to redefine the classic nail salon experience. And redefine it does: in fact, Athenian takes customer satisfaction and relaxation so seriously that once you step inside you may just forget that you’re in a nail salon at all. In addition to the professional-grade manicures and pedicures that will prompt you to wonder why you ever got your nails done anywhere else (the Aphrodite manicures and pedicures even include sugar scrub exfoliations and a massage), this sleekly designed spa haven even offers a full bar serving beer, wine, and cocktails. All guests receive one free glass of wine or non-alcoholic drink with their visit, and a number of other spa services include full complimentary bar service.

‘Reflexology’ refers to a specific type of massage that focuses on reflex points in the hands, feet, and head in order to relieve tension and stress. And no other spa in Nashville does this quite as well as Bucca Reflexology, a specialized boutique spa located just 10 to 15 minutes southwest of downtown Nashville. Each guest at Bucca is treated to the spa’s offering of soothing eye masks and hot herbal tea, and the veteran acupressure message therapists that run Bucca are guaranteed to provide you with foot and hand reflexology treatments that are customized to match your specific needs in order to leave you feeling balanced, calm, and pain-free.

Why not make a trip of it and book a stay at one of the best spa hotels in Nashville.
