Hot List 2008

Voda Spa, Los Angeles

Tel: 323-654-4411

Step off Santa Monica Boulevard and onto the steppes of Russia in this sleek, contemporary bathhouse under a soaring 20-foot ceiling with exposed beams. This section of West Hollywood has long been a Russian enclave, but at Voda a hip mash-up of trendy spa services, such as the Siberian Wild Berry Scrub ($120), is proffered along with the traditional. The Russian banya treatment ($25) is a circuit of saunas, cold showers, and a platza session (the brisk massage with a venik, a bundle of hot-water-soaked oak branches and leaves). Don't forget your bathing suit so you can linger with a smoothie while lolling in the whirlpools and swimming pool (massages, $95–$250).
