About The Standard Spa, Miami Beach

Situated on tiny Belle Isle in Biscayne Bay, The Standard Spa, Miami Beach is an indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy playground that fosters stress-free socializing in a tropical, contemporary setting. With a minimalist design, the holistic hydrotherapy spa hotel provides a stylish yet intimate ambience just blocks from the glitz of South Beach's nightlife and celebrity crowd.

Owned by hotelier André Balazs, the hotel, winner of Condé Nast Traveler's Readers' Favorite Spa Hotel award, features a one-acre garden with do-it-yourself hydrotherapy-based scrubs, plunges, open-air mud baths, and stunning amenities that include a 103° F Roman Waterfall Hot Tub, a 50° F Arctic Plunge, and a 12-foot Falling Water Column. The 12,500-square-foot spa boasts one of the largest hammams in North America, in addition to an exceptional treatment menu of bodywork, massage, facials, and complementary health alternatives.

More than 40 fitness classes are available weekly (including eight types of yoga), and the hotel's restaurants offer healthful Mediterranean coastal cuisine and al fresco dining. The modest guest capacity (a mere 100 rooms) complements the hotel's communal setting.

Customer Reviews for The Standard Spa, Miami Beach (12)

March 1, 2014
This is one of the shabbiest spas around. Perhaps to the day visitor hanging by the pool pretending they are 'It' a good experience is had. But stay overnight and all that will quickly change, from the noise on the property infiltrating windows that needed to be replaced decades ago, to the smell of mildew in the rooms and the noisy air conditioner- all in all felt like I was in a prison cell more than even a semi-luxury hotel. Andre Balasz should be ashamed of himself! Oh, and did I mention the yoga room that smelled like toxic paint? REALLY? There are these things called VOCs and you can get paint that does not have those, so that your students don't have to filter all those toxins through their lungs for the next year! I was told the place was painted 'at least 5 months ago' and it is still off-gassing, not to mention the water damaged floor that is buckling. There was one great thing, I had an excellent yoga teacher this Sat morning.

Perfect getaway close to home
Love love love coming to the Standard in Miami for the spa, yoga, great food and atmosphere. So nice not to be on your own little island, you feel you are much farther away then Florida. Walkable to the beach and other nightlife, though you don't have to leave.

Great Massage, Enjoyed Hammam
I received a great massage here. The massage was very thorough -- not designed for anyone modest. Even though I visited during hotel weather, I really enjoyed the hammam.

Arctic Plunge Pool
The Standard has very different services than you would find at other establishments. That's why I chose this spa over the local spas for my monthly facial. When I saw the menu of services, I decided to check out the Arctic Plunge Pool. Reminds me of one of the spa baths I had while in Vegas, at Caesars spa.

A little awkward but a whole lot of fun
This spa is a bit interesting and tricky. I'll start with the good points. Jacob the therapist was great, this guy knows his stuff and is constantly asking to see how music, sound, comfort levels, etc. are to your liking. The spa has great water amenities including the roman waterfall hot tub, the arctic plunge pool and the main pool. It overlooks the bay and there are small places to just lie down and relax. The hammam is great and the soak tubs and steam rooms are clean and inviting. Now, the part that I feel another guest may not like. The spa is really divided into 3 levels, the 1st floor pools, the lockers on 2 and the spa on 3..so get ready to do a lot of walking around. Also parking here on busy days is a complete nightmare, so don't say I didn't warn you. You should like this spa, I feel it's above average, but also feel the prices are high compared to the competition.

great yoga but not luxury experience
the spa area itself was uninspiring. it seemed dingy and uninviting. everything has an economical feel to it here. the service was really disappointing. staff acted as though i was lucky they were bothering to give me a moment of their time. the rooms were disappointing. i felt like i was at a cheap apartment complex. the redeeming factors were the pool area, which was indeed lovely, and the yoga. i would say this was one of the best yoga classes / instructors i've ever had. it was inside, not out, which was a shame as nothing beats beachfront yoga, but the class made it well worth the lack of scenery!

A little bit of heaven
I had the deep tissue massage along with a scrub at the Standard. The grounds themselves are quite spectacular - lush and tropical - and add an air of privacy. My therapist was Juan and he was terrific. He hit all my pressure points and gave me some suggestions on how to avoid those knots! The treatment felt as if it were 2 hours when it was actually only one! That's how good it was! I definitely recommend this treatment and this spa.

Should be called discount spa based on service & facilities
We went in for a 1/2 day spa experience and ended up more frustrated and stressed out then when we got there. We were scheduled for massages, facials, and pedicures. The massages and facials were both shorted by at least 10 min. from what was promised. The facilities were in poor shape, dirty, dingy and more like a gym locker room than an exclusive spa. The staff was neither helpful nor accommodating. The only reason this spa received 2 stars on any area was the pedicure, which redeemed it a little. That was great, well done, took her time and did a great job (although that is what you pay for...) Overall, the experience was horrible...don't waste your time or your money here. Also - be prepared to pay, parking for a 1/2 day is $20 and that's with their measly validation of $3. The car is also parked 15-20 min. away, so be prepared to wait!

The name say it all
It is exactly what it states... the standard spa... just something to do while killing time. Let alone while on vacation. Visit here just for that touristy experience. Average minus if you ask me

Great friendly service, excellent facilities
Huge hammam, great high power showers, steam room, and a variety of choice for treatments. Outdoor gardens and pool also adds more variety and a beautiful bay view. The mud treatment area is not really private, so not for shy people. Really friendly and helpful staff. I didn't take any fitness classes but have heard great things about their yoga classes. Perfect for a midweek escape!!

LOVE love love the Standard
When you arrive at the Standard Miami you are automatically transported into a posh relaxed environment where people roam freely in their robes. The expansive Hamam area is cozy and surrounded by stainless steel soaking tubs. Outside clay treatments are offered where you lay out in the sun until the clay dries, then jump into the footed tubs and remove the clay. Their take on communal treatments makes this spa extremely romantic if with your significant other or a lot of fun if you're with friends.

Not happy
A little too new agey for my taste. I got a body scrub. it was a barely enclosed room and I heard people talking the whole time. The person also scrubbed too hard and when I got home I noticed marks that looked like rug burns! I can't speak for all the services, but I was quite unhappy with the scrub.
