Table of Contents

Life’s everyday hustle can take its toll, even if you love your job and home area. Washington, D.C., has you covered when you’re ready for a spa day with some serious downtime and pampering. There’s something to help everyone relax and plenty of salons and spas in D.C. to choose from. Here are just a few of the area’s top rejuvenation spots.

Our Top List of D.C. Spas


Bliss is one of the newer spas in D.C. It was founded in 1996 on a belief that “inner happiness leads to outer beauty.” Its “transforming skin wellness” line helps clients put their best faces forward through products that are certified cruelty-free and meet exacting European Union standards for purity – and all at prices that won’t break the bank. Bliss offers plenty of in-house treatments — facials, massages, scrubs, waxing, nails, and laser hair removal — in addition to a full range of take-home products for skin and hair care.

Bliss is in convenient proximity to many of our apartment locations. It is about a mile west of the 1600 Apartments and less than 2 miles from The Rocksboro Apartments, the 1830 R Street Apartments, and The Rodney. Bliss sits about 1.4 miles east of The Circle Arms Apartments.
