Lady Spa Spa Loves Miami Spa Month

Greater Miami and the Miami Beaches are home to some of “Best Spas in America,” and during the months of July and August guests to the area can indulge in rejuvenating special treatments for as low as $99.

To me its all about the Spa experience. In addition to the treatment offered and a quality service, I want to feel like I am on a day-long vacation  so when making spa appointment decisions, I also consider if there are extra perks that allow me to enjoy a full day of total relaxation PLUS the treatment.

Here are a few of my favorite standouts from this year’s Miami Spa Month:

THE PALMS HOTEL & SPA
The Palms Aveda Spa

What: Their Rejuvenate & Glow Package includes a 30 Minute Hydrocapsule Salt Scrub and a 30 Minute Elemental Nature Massage or Facial. For a full 80 minutes of bliss, the Head to Toe Revival sounds great wtih a 30 Minute Elemental Nature Massage or Facial in addition to a 50 Minute Stress-Fix Pedicure. If you want to splurge and spend a little more time on yourself the $129 Total Body Rejuvenation package cannot be beat with an 80 Minute Elemental Nature Massage followed by a 15 Minute Warm Oil Infusion Scalp Massage.

The Extras: The Palms is one of the only spas in Miami with Hydrocapsule technology and all-day access to the pool the day of your treatment (most of the nice hotel pools are off limits unless you’re a guest). As an added bonus, Spa treatment rooms are equipped with docking stations for iPods and individual music channel controls to customize your sound choice for each treatment.

The perfect location for spa day retreat, be sure to lunch at the garden-to-table Essensia restaurant. Ahhh.. I cannot think of anything better than lounging by the pool with a  ‘conscious cocktail’ in hand. These hand crafted, signature libations are made with fresh fruit and herbs grown in Essensia’s Organic Chef’s Gardens.

TRUMP INTERNATIONAL BEACH RESORT
Aquanox Spa at Trump International Beach Resort

What: Trump International is offering multiple $99 options including your choice of a 75 minute Total Relaxation Massage, Grapefruit Body Polish or Seaweed Collagen. That’s a good amount of time to submerge yourself in a true euphoric state!

The Extras: Completely new and renovated locker rooms feature a Finnish sauna, eucalyptus steam room, digital showers, lockers, luxurious robes, and spa slippers. A redecorated Relaxation Lounge features comfortable leather seating, beverages and light snacks. Bring sneakers along to work out in the state of the art Fitness Center. Then get some sun bathing in with access to the exclusive Beach Club. Discounted $5.00 valet parking is also offered to Spa Month guests.

FONTAINEBLEAU MIAMI BEACH
Lapis Spa, the Spa at Fontainebleau

The What: Choose from your choice of $99 – 50 minute treatment options like a Swedish Rubdown Massage, Hot Rock Massages, Mommy’s Bliss Massage, Pore Perfecting Facial or a Men’s Grooming Facial. A variety of weekday samplers and a couple massage for $129 are also offered for Spa Month.

The Extras: Miami Spa guests can immerse themselves in over six different water elements including mineral pools and infused steam rooms. Then they can spend the remainder of their day lounging pool and beachside at the perfect spot on Miami Beach. Just this mineral pools experience is worth the cost of the $99 treatment. It is something you need to try at least once in your lifetime.  Unforgettable, I simply cannot wait to go back some day to try it all over again.

View the full list of participating spas here. Don’t forget Miami Spa Month comes but once a year experiencing at the end of August so be sure to schedule your treatment today. You deserve a day long vacation. Doesn’t everybody?
