For luxury epicures, Spa Radiance, a pampering stronghold on the Fillmore boutique side of town, is an oasis blending both old-world beauty treatments and some of the most bold and innovative spa therapies around.
As soon as you step foot into Spa Radiance, the welcoming ambience -- courtesy of attentive customer service and swanky décor -- outdoes the establishment's's reputation as a one-stop watering hole for the upper crust. Flower-shaped lamps snake out of the ceilings like live plants, and the hardwood floors and rustic shelves stacked with various beauty products give Spa Radiance an earthy but urban feel. Exotic fashion photography is festooned throughout the treatment room hallway, against a backdrop of serene earth tones. -- Nirmala Nataraj
