While Mercury Retrograde has often been a scapegoat for unexpected mishaps and communication breakdowns, it’s also a time for reflection and realignment. This astronomical event, which occurs three times a year, isn’t just a chaotic period but an opportunity for personal growth.

The Hotel Californian, an epitome of luxury nestled in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, has harnessed the transformative power of these planetary shifts to offer a unique experience: the Mercury Retrograde Spa Package.

Mercury is due to make its backward dance again from August 23 through September 14, 2023. But don’t fret over travel delays and miscommunications. The Hotel Californian has got you covered.

Unwind and Recharge with The Hotel Californian’s Luxury Spa Package

The Mercury Retrograde Spa Package, or ‘Recharging in Retrograde‘, is specially designed to help guests find balance and tranquility amidst the cosmic chaos. Tailored to coincide with the retrograde periods, this package is more than just a standard hotel stay – it’s a therapeutic journey for the soul.

Inclusive of a Chakra Meditation Massage at the Majorelle Spa, inspired by the exotic allure of Morocco, this package pampers guests with an immersive sensory experience. The custom aromatherapy design consultation further promises an intimate session for curating personalized fragrances that mirror your mood and aspirations.

Fulfilling the mantra of mindful luxury, The Hotel Californian also allows a late checkout up to 2pm, foreseeing potential retrograde-induced travel hiccups. The meticulously curated welcome and nightly turndown amenities, featuring grounding mantras and yoga poses, serve as gentle reminders of balance and tranquility.

Harness the Power of the Full Moon at Djinn

For those visiting during a full moon in the retrograde period, the hotel’s signature bar, Djinn, hosts the ‘HOWL’ – a full moon-inspired event series. From Tarot card readings to Runes consultations, guests can gain a personalized insight into the mystical effects of the retrograde. It’s the perfect opportunity to glean a deeper understanding of one’s celestial journey, all while savoring the hotel’s elite hospitality.
