A pumpkin latte hydrating European facial? A fruit-forward treatment with matching martini? Here are a few seasonal restorative spa offerings that have us saying ahh for fall.

There’s never a bad time to indulge in self-care and personal pampering, but this fall, a slew of seasonal and signature treatments will go a long way toward helping you achieve inner bliss. First up, The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Houston celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a series of Pampered Pink Treatments. Book a Polished Pink Pedicure or Polished Pink Body Scrub ($80 to $150) and 20% of the proceeds will be donated to the MD Anderson Cancer Center. At Hiatus Spa + Retreat, October’s in-season offering, the Plum Crazy treatment ($195), involves a fresh plum and violet essence exfoliating mask, a Vichy shower and aromatherapy massage using frankincense, elemi and angelica flower, topped off with a sake plum wine martini. New at Spa by Alessandra is its three-hour Fall Into Relaxation package ($455): Mimosas or Champagne on arrival, a 60-minute custom massage with brown sugar hand or foot scrub, a pumpkin latte hydrating European facial, and an arctic berry manicure and pedicure. For a little extra TLC: Through November, The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa’s Autumn Awakening Weekend staycation package (rates approx $400) includes a private Autumn Equinox Yoga session, 50-minute Tension Relief Cocoon Body treatment involving self-heating marine mud at its resident Trellis Spa, chai spice smoothie from the Center Court Café and access to The Houstonian Club.

And for the overstressed gent, The Spa at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston’s On the Rocks manicure or pedicure ($50 to $65) includes hand and foot exfoliation, an acupressure massage, a nourishing foot wrap and nails trimmed and buffed, with a side of scotch (order up the hotel’s newly acquired Highland Park 1968), bourbon or tequila, of course.
