Enjoy a 48-Hour Wellness Crawl with These Top Miami Spas
Picture this: A 48-hour visit to the vibrant city of Miami. Here, the art captivates, the beaches sizzle and those spas refresh. Spas encourage some serious chilling out (both literally and figuratively) with cooling treatments and eye-catching designs that rival Art Basel. Where would you spend time during your 48-hour spa crawl? We have these top Miami spas in mind.
48-Hour Spa Crawl in Miami
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, knows how to do Zen. And chic. Polish your look in the mani-pedi area. Hit up a yoga, tai chi, qi gong or belly dance class. Reflect in the sauna or steam room. And find balance with one of the thoughtful spa therapies derived from ancient Ayurvedic, Balinese, Chinese, European and Thai traditions. The unique Healing Wave (80 mins; $260) combines singing bowls with a back, scalp and foot massage—and when you book, the spa donates to the Voices for Children Foundation.
A local fave for over a decade, emEna spa is eco-friendly and affordable, two things we appreciate. Set in Miami’s design district, this stylish spa keeps up with the big guys, thanks to its one-stop-shop mentality: part day spa, med spa and hair salon. Try the Fire & Ice Facial (50 mins, $165). It incorporates chilled organic masks and creams, as well as cold, glass globes to enhance circulation and oxygenation whilst reducing inflammation.
Aveda Spa at the Palms Hotel
The spa menu at The Palms AVEDA Spa is a lengthy one, which we love. But what we really adore: All the extra touches the spa presents. These include ZenDays (aka, Sundays with yoga, brunch, beach and spa), as well as the steam-room-and-ice-fountain combo. If you’ve booked a 50-minute-plus service, you gain access to the property’s private beach, pool, steam, fitness and relaxation areas (plus, discounted valet parking) for a perfect spa day.
Stanton Spa at Marriott Stanton South Beach
In the center of SoBe, Stanton Spa takes inspiration from its very (spectacular) beach setting. Ocean-inspired treatments include the Summer Skin Cooler (50 mins, $150), a body treatment that marries lavender and peppermint. The Signature Stanton South Beach Ritual (80 mins, $230)—which includes a sea salt, coconut and algo-monoi scrub and a lomilomi massage using warm sand pouches—sounds like a winner as well.
