Never fear: AskMeFi is here! Can anyone come to the rescue with referrals to kid-tolerant spas or very relaxing hotels/B&Bs within reasonable driving distance of the Bay Area?

My friend: single mom, law student, frazzled from holiday drama with family and the ex. She has the opportunity to leave one of her children with the ex for a few days, on the condition that she keep the younger child with her. She's thinking about just checking into a hotel for a few days, telling everyone she's away, and getting some time to unwind and heal.
Yoga, massage, sauna, steam rooms all a bonus, but meditation in a peaceful natural environment would be lovely as well.
The child she's bringing with her is 15 months old, and is a very well behaved and relaxed kid. I know some hotels and spas will provide child care for an hour or two, but I'm not sure how common that sort of service is in the Bay Area. Using her normal child care avenues isn't really an option. She's concerned about asking friends or the part-time nanny to watch her child while she gets a break as she's not sure what may or may not get back to her rather slimy and very unpleasant ex. He's the sort who has sabotaged previous attempts for her to relax while staying at home if he himself is feeling a bit under pressure at work or otherwise (hence her going to a hotel or staying away for a few nights)
Many thanks in advance for your help...
