Need a break from sightseeing? Slip off to one of these soothing spots for an hour of bliss.

After a day or two of walking Savannah's cobblestone streets, indulge your tired muscles at one of its fine spas. You don't have to spend a lot of time or money, just treat yourself to something special. And remember, you deserve it.

Vanilla: A Downtown Day Spa

Where: 1 East Broughton Street; www.vanilladayspa.com or (912) 232-0040.

Specialties: Deep-tissue massage combines soothing strokes and intense muscle work for athletic body types ($75 for an hour). The Lunchtime Express Facial ($45) includes cleansing, steaming, and a soothing mask.

Savannah Day Spa

Magnolia Spa

Atmosphere: Nestled into a corner of the hotel’s atrium, Magnolia offers serene locker areas complete with sauna and steam rooms.

Specialties: Try the AromaStone facial ($100) that massages with warm and cool smooth stones. Walk out all aglitter from an 85-minute Golden Body Ritual ($135). After exfoliating and massaging your body, the therapist lightly rubs gold-flecked body oil into your skin and dusts you in a shimmering powder. You’ll look―and feel―like a million dollars.
