Time is of the essence, and you just can’t seem to find enough of it for a proper vacation with your significant other. So how about the next best thing, a spa-cation at Chicago’s luxurious Allyu day spa? Pick a nice weekend or call in sick together mid-week (we won’t tell) and book a couples mini retreat, a perfect way to relax together and leave the stress of the world behind. Gorgeous natural elements abound as soon as the two of you step through the door. From the cork floors and reclaimed barn wood tables to walls lined with Wisconsin field stone, the serene setting puts you at ease instantly. Find yourselves speaking in hushed voices as you slip into the soft cotton robes and walk down the hallway to the meditation tent, the first stop on your journey to tranquility. The skeptical look on your partner’s face quickly turns to pleasure as you both enjoy chakra-balancing massages that release tension and create energy at the same time. By the end of it, you’ll both be smiling at how good you feel, and ready to book another spa-cation soon.
