Regulars know it's wise to set aside an entire day for a pampering session at A Lily of Gold Day Spa, because once you get started, you won't want to leave this relaxing Vallejo oasis.

Consider starting your day with a chocolate body scrub, which gently exfoliates dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling fresh and renewed. Next, move on to a hot stone or deep flow massage that will relieve the tension of tight muscles. Maybe you'd also like eyelash extensions, which are also a popular enhancement that many customers choose. Finally, round out your day with a glass of bubbly champagne and a deep purifying facial to eliminate excess oil and to help exfoliate skin. Waxing and sugaring services are also available for the body and face.

Whatever services you decide on, regulars insist you’re sure to receive attentive and friendly care at A Lily of Gold Day Spa.
