The Herrington Inn & Spa, Geneva

Located on the banks of the beautiful Fox River, the spa at the AAA Four Diamond Herrington Inn (above) is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring the shops and restaurants in the charming town of Geneva, Illinois. Book a diamond-dermabrasion facial to get your skin sparkling clean, or try a therapeutic massage for deep muscle release. In the mood for extra pampering? Ask for The Herrington Delight, which features a chamomile and lavender body scrub, private rainfall shower, full-body massage with muscle-soothing balm and finishes with a body wrap to seal in all that relaxation.

King Spa & Sauna, Niles

Part spa, part social club, this enormous Korean spa just outside of Chicago in Niles, Illinois, has something for everyone. Each sauna has not only its own temperature but also its own mineral compound, from salt to ocher to amethyst. In the gender-segregated spa rooms, you can explore the different pools and book a scrub, massage or acupressure treatment before stopping by the food court for a fresh juice or plate of homemade Korean food. Tired? There’s a movie theater and even a nap room where you can hang out for as long as you like—King Spa is open 24/7.

Kohler Waters Spa at Burr Ridge, Burr Ridge

Experience the healing powers of water at this unique spa 20 miles outside of Chicago in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Start your treatment with a Kohler Bath: The water is enhanced with relaxing minerals and marine extracts, and the music is calibrated to soothe frazzled nerves. Or go to extremes with the Fire and Ice experience. Under a Kohler Custom Vichy shower, you’ll enjoy a full-body exfoliation and carrot seed oil facial, followed by a cooling peppermint ice treatment and a warm and cold rinse and finally a hydrating body butter application. Before you leave, stop by the café for Mediterranean-inspired plates like roasted red pepper hummus with veggies and toasted pita bread, a protein smoothie or an apple butter and cheddar panini.
