Locally, nothing screams "treat yo' self" or "live your best life" more to me than lounging in a hillside hot tub at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort and Spa in Avila Beach. As if providing the chance to bask in luxurious, on-site mineral water wasn't enough (whether by reserving one of the resort's private hot tubs or its famous Oasis Waterfall Lagoon), Sycamore also offers top-notch massages and facials. Appointment availability for either service can be viewed on the resort's website, which describes the venue as an invitation to "leave stresses and distractions behind while opening the mind and body to pure engagement with our healing atmosphere."
