The Best Spas in Miami

13th June 2019 // By Emma Reynolds

Miami might be known for its seen-and-be-seen party vibe, filled with late nights, breezy beachside soirées and indulgent food and drink, but it’s also home to some of the world’s most incredible spas. During your next trip to the 305, reserve a massage treatment to detox before you retox with our definitive list of the best spas in Miami.

Tierra Santa Healing House

Faena Hotel Miami Beach

Each year, Faena Hotel Miami Beach’s Penthouse Suite is a shoe-in on our list of Top 100 Suites in the world. Not only does the hotel have a unique design focus and views over the ocean, its luxe amenities are beloved by its many returning visitors. The Tierra Santa Healing House is a 20,000-sq-ft oasis with healing rituals from Asia, South America and India. It houses healing sanctuaries, including the largest hammam on the East Coast and has shaman-developed Unique Healing Arts body rituals using resins, healing stones and poultices. There’s a unique focus on preventative medicine and holistic wellness; get a consultation with the spa’s in-house doctors. Results-driven technology forward facials are also on the menu, so whether you want to oxygenate your skin or get a resculpting lift through advanced technology, you can do it all. faena.com/miami-beach

Lapis Spa

Fontainebleau Miami Beach

Ocean-inspired treatments and luxurious relaxation areas lead the charge here at Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. From the eucalyptus steam baths to mineral pools to the rain tunnel, it will be easy to spend an entire afternoon lounging in complete bliss. Opt for a traditional stone massage and body treatment or transform your complexion via facials, such as the Three Layer Cool Peel (a medical-grade peel for radiant skin); Cosmetic Micro Needling to stimulate collagen; or the heavy-duted Stacked Anti-Aging Treatment that combines micro-needling, micro-dermabrasion, the aforementioned cool peel and a quick dose of oxygen for dull skin. There’s also the Lapis Hammam Baths here that help to restore tired muscles and increase well-being through aromatherapy, eucalyptus and pine and warm water. fontainebleau.com/spa

The Spa

Mandari Oriental, Miami

Spa Suite

When it comes to service and luxury at the Mandarin Oriental, you know you will always receive it in five-star style. Honoring its Asian heritage, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami infuses ancient Chinese tradition and techniques into their treatment menu. Here, you will also find Ayurvedic, European, Balinese and Thai traditions infused within your body treatments, facials and wellness-focused packages. Here there are 11 treatment rooms with a private shower and six VIP spa suites with unparalleled views over Biscayne Bay. We recommend one of these gorgeous rooms. Don’t miss the unique Digital Wellness Escape that relieves muscle pain in your head, eyes, neck, shoulders, hands and feet from looking at your mobile device all day. The Oriental Qi spa experience also is delightful: It massages the energy of the body’s meridians using essential oils. mandarinoriental.com/miami

Spa

The Miami Beach EDITION

The Miami Beach EDITION might be known for its wild pool parties but once you step foot in its neutral-hued, ambient-lit spa (think: whispy white curtains, fragrant candles, deep couches and dimly lit walkways) you will forget about all the hoopla happening outside. Its multiple treatment rooms are awash in white and pale gold allowing you to focus on nothing else but tranquility. The spa offers Ayurvedic treatments, massages, body scrubs and facials, therapy baths and hair and scalp treatments, as well as makeup and mani/pedis. The hotel has a state-of-the-art fitness center with machines, free weights and plenty of room for stretching, and also offers fitness classes and a lap pool. Take advantage of the jogging and biking trails that surrounds the property or book surfing lessons. marriott.com

ESPA Spa

Acqualina Hotel & Resort

Royal Spa Suite

The quietest hotel on the list, Acqualina Hotel & Resort in Miami is a more family-friendly luxurious resort. If it’s a more toned-down weekend you crave, this is the place to bring the kids for a weekend filled with fun. While here, you’re not to miss the ESPA Spa at Acqualina Resort which boasts more than 20,000 sq ft of treatment rooms, water rituals, lounges and special-occasion suites (like the Royal Spa Suite). We love the HydraFacial MD facial, which cleanses, extracts and hydrates in one go, or indulge in a tailored treatment. Whichever room you’re in or treatment you choose, you will have incredible views of the sparkling ocean. After your treatment (be in a massage or De-Stress Spa Journey), unwind in the Himalayan salt room or relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi with a Roman waterfall. The spa also serves healthy cuisine, juices and beverages for an all-around wellness-focused day. acqualinaresort.com/spa
