Plan a Perfect Valentine’s Day in South Calgary: Date ideas for you and a loved one

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching – are you ready?

We encourage you to spend the day pampering yourself by making time for your favourite self-care ritual, and/or in the company of someone who simply puts a smile on your face – whoever that may be! We’ve put together a list of date ideas in South Calgary to inspire you to spend Valentine’s Day doing the things that bring you joy, while appreciating some much-deserved me time.

Feel pampered at the Spa…

What’s a better date than a relaxing time spent at the spa? This month, Soma is offering its Couples Hammam for $150 (regularly $200). The treatment is an intimate and enjoyable experience where you and your significant other receive a traditional Turkish body cleanse and massage. The 75-minute treatment starts with each of you taking turns having a ‘kese’ wash and essential oil footbath. Then, the certified Aesthetician will give you privacy to apply a sea salt scrub exfoliation. The treatment is finished with a full body rinse and body butter application. After experiencing the Hammam cleanse, you’ll walk away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and happy to have spent the time relaxing with your partner.

Don’t have a partner this Valentine’s Day? No need to fret. The day is also the perfect time to recognize the love you share for your friends! Call up your best gals and invite them to celebrate gal-entines with a manicure and pedicure while sippin’ on some bubbly at Soma! Appointments can be made online or by phone at 587-471-2496.

Indulge on a Lunch Date…

Good food and and even better company are simple pleasures to indulge in this Valentine’s Day. Visit Starbelly, a contemporary casual restaurant located in the heart of Seton. You can always expect a well-curated seasonal menu, featuring locally sourced high quality ingredients from mindful Albertan farmers and suppliers. We suggest sharing a few appetizers and saving room for dessert! Reservations can be made online or by calling 403-570-0133.

Get physical in a Fitness Class…

Get you heart pumping fast this Valentine’s Day in a fitness class! Join in at an Orangetheory Fitness class where you’ll combine treadmill training, rowing, and weights in a fun and communal environment guided by certified trainers. Alternatively, attend a barre class at Barre Belle, where you’ll combine dance training, with strength and cardio sequences to make you S-W-E-A-T.

Currently, Soma clients can receive 10% off auto-renew memberships and 10% off 10 + 20 barre class packs at the Auburn Bay Barre Belle location. All Barre Belle clients can receive 10% off services and treatments at Soma Spa. These discounts are to be applied on in-store purchases only.

Spend the night out at the movies…

Valentine’s Day can be spent enjoying dinner and a movie at Calgary’s first upscale Cineplex VIP theatre located in Seton. The VIP section of the theatre is set up for adults only, where there’s a bar with featured cocktails, craft beer, and a full menu filled with delicious culinary sections to choose from. Servers are available in the auditorium at all times throughout the movie to take your order and deliver it straight to your comfy seats.
