The Montage Beverly Hills is offering a variety of options to celebrate the day of love, including a stay in its super posh digs with its Romantic Retreat hotel offer, which includes luxurious accommodations, chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne upon arrival, complimentary access to Spa Montage Beverly Hills, breakfast in bed or at The Rooftop Grill, and overnight valet parking.

The second option is a tongue-in-cheek homage to love through cocktails. The Bar welcomes guests to enjoy the “Opposites Attract” specialty cocktail duo featuring “The Heart” and “The Spirit”—both, playful twists on classic libations— as well as Cupid-approved culinary favorites including caviar, oysters and sweets such as Milk Chocolate Espresso Soufflé and Yogurt Panna Cotta. There will be live music to enjoy to sweeten the experience.

Then, The Restaurant is offering a  four course prix fixe dinner menu laden with rich and decadent offerings such as leek and potato cream soup with black truffles, seared scallops, beef tartare, Chilean sea bess and filet mignon. Dessert is called “Chocolate Obsession.” Enough said.

And finally, relaxation is the name of the game at Spa Montage Beverly Hills featuring L. Raphael (a completely decadent, absolutely fabulous Swiss beauty brand), where guests can “sweeten” any traditional massage, manicure or couple’s treatment with a luxurious upgrade: each treatment begins with a rose-scented inhalation to calm the mind and balance the mood, followed by a moisturizing chocolate-infused lotion designed to stimulate circulation and deeply hydrate the skin. Post-treatment, kick back with a glass of champagne and decadent chocolate truffles.

The Four Seasons Los Angeles has not one but three ways to celebrate this Valentine’s Day. For something unique, attend the Love Awakening event. After opening up to love, participants will be able to energetically invite in and attract their ideal romantic partner, remove the obstacles and negative patterns that hold them back from high levels of love vibrations, and deepen the intimate connection with their partner. The event begins with Deganit Nuur, a clairvoyant intuitive and meditation instructor, guiding participants in retraining the brain to accept and receive the intimacy, support and passion that they deserve and continues with Nish Fox, a sound and energy healer, who will then offer a healing breathwork sound bath. After the heart has been opened through the 90-minute session, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a conscious cocktail and bottle their euphoria up in the creation of a custom love potion made of therapeutic essential oils.The even will take place at 5:30 pm on February 14.

Then, the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is offering the 1,000 Roses Facial, which transforms dull, fatigued skin into glowing, rose petal freshness. The facial begins with aromatherapy grounding and a two-step rose quartz cleanse, followed by a multi-dimensional exfoliation process and a massage with biodynamic Bulgarian rose actives. The facial ends with  a customized, skin-specific application of KYPRIS serums and golden beauty elixirs.

Last but not least, Luca Moriconi, the Chef de Cuisine at Culina, the Four Seasons’ signature restaurant, is serving a five-course prix fixe menu of sangria, an oyster cupid amuse-bouche with freshly shucked oysters and aphrodisiac condiments, followed by a choice of lasagnetta (black mussels and artichoke lasagna) or asparagus risotto and main courses of Sogliola E Zucchini, baked Dover sole filets or Gallina al Tartufo (roasted Cornish hen).
