Spafinder Staffer: Christi Schaufler, Vice President, Corporate Sales
Miami Spa Month Location: Exhale Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour
Service Received: Magic Facial
Christi’s take on the spa: “Do you believe in MAGIC!? After my visit to The Exhale Spa, I sure do! Five-star luxury service! From the moment I walked in and was greeted by the Spa Director to the moment I left the building, I was impressed with the level of service provided. The valet parking was easy and inexpensive with the spa service validation. I was walked directly to the elevator and shown to the spa by a very nice gentleman. I was greeted in the spa with a tour of each part of the facility, including the relaxation rooms, the fitness rooms, and the outdoor terrace overlooking the gorgeous blue waters. The locker rooms were quaint but had all of the amenities you could hope for. As I lounged around the relaxation room waiting for my service, there was fruit-infused water along with delicious almonds to snack on. If I wanted to, I could have had a warm neck wrap, but opted to check out the terrace for a few minutes and look at the water. Up next, Margo the aesthetician who was going to be giving me the Magic Facial greeted me and asked about my experience so far. She has to be one of the most pleasant and happy people I have met. We made our way to the treatment room where there was a great view of a few palm trees and the water (check out my view in the photo below). She walked me through the entire treatment, including what to expect each step of the way. My Magic Facial treatment was going to be 90-minutes, so I was in for a real treat. It was the best of the best in technology and products all implemented by Margo—talk about someone who is full of skincare knowledge! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. I was beyond relaxed as she went through the different steps. I left glowing; my skin never felt better, and a few days later I am still benefiting from the service. Margo was honest, knowledgeable, and made me feel like a superstar. I would highly recommend a visit here; the service, the location, and the staff are ideal for anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable day. If you have time, take full advantage of the facility, including the steam-room and sauna. I will be back!”
