Our Mission

An apt translation, Bellassima means “very beautiful.” Indeed, our soothing retreat and boutique day spa (soon to be located in La Jolla overlooking a cove of the Pacific Ocean) is warm and lovely. In experienced and highly trained hands, our clients achieve very beautiful results: self-care that’s as good for the soul as it is for face and body.

Now in our new location in La Jolla (next to George's on the Cove), Bellassima Sea Spa is a full-service boutique day spa with a collective team of Licensed Master Aestheticians and Corrective Skincare Specialists. Our tranquil day spa has ultra-chic, ultra-comfortable treatment rooms that use only the finest spa linens and equipment. Bellassima Sea Spa has the latest in anti-aging products and techniques to address all your skincare concerns and deliver superior long-lasting results.
