I’m always on the lookout for new spas to recommend and I found one this weekend! It’s called Carasoin and it’s owned by the two most charming imports I’ve met in a long time! The couple, Lena and Tom (from Switzerland and the UK, respectively) relocated to L.A. from London and brought an eye for detail that I love. Upon entering the space on Robertson Blvd., behind the Newsroom Café and across from the Ivy, I immediately loved the design. It felt one part French and feminine, one part sophisticated and one part serene. And that’s even before I stepped foot in the treatment room. Tom and Lena meticulously chose beds that gently contour to a woman’s body; beautifully luscious linens; and products from Elemis, including blends to add to your massage oil that can target stretch marks or help detoxify. After spending the weekend moving, I was VERY excited to have a signature massage. The massage therapist informed me that I would feel sound reverberations in the bed from the music (which she could turn off or up if I preferred). She started by dry brushing my body (which helps circulation) and then proceeded with the utterly divine and relaxing massage. They really have managed to create an urban oasis with this spa, the only one of its kind on the busy stretch of boutiques that line Robertson. Stop in while you can still nab an appointment.
