Just Relax

Miami Spa Month has hit its stride and we couldn’t think of a better way to beat the heat than inside an air-conditioned pampering suite. Check out these me-time deals before they’re gone!

The relaxation is one at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau.

1. Rock Steady
Not your average soul asylum, Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau is a 40,00-square-foot mecca of relaxation that exudes tranquility. Spoil yourself with the Aroma Stone Therapy ($99 for 50 minutes), a treatment that combines warm basalt lava stones and fragrant oils to increase circulation to stressed muscles and induce deep relaxation. All services here include an all-access pass to use the spa’s amenities. Our favorite? The rain tunnel, a walkthrough in which guests are doused with reinvigorating streams of water. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 866.750.4772 

2. Face Time
The visual pleasures are many at the glamorous, Philippe Starck-designed Spa at The Viceroy. Case in point: a “floating” library and a 5,000-square-foot water lounge. Just as spectacular are the services. The Viceroy Miami Signature Facial ($129 for 70 minutes) offers a mysterious mix of ingredients to revitalize the skin and help you put your best face forward. 485 Brickell Ave., Miami, 305.503.4400 

3. From the Deep
Undress, de-stress and let the professionals at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental take you on the ultimate of soothing journeys. The Full Body Detoxifying Algae Wrap ($129 for 60 minutes) uses the ocean plant to exfoliate the skin while raising the body’s temperature, which makes for a revitalized feeling after the treatment. 500 Brickell Key Drive, Miami, 305.913.8332

4. Body Beautiful
At Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa, the services available range from a multitude of health and wellness options to body renewal selections. Our favorite: The Body & Sole Renewal ($99 for 50 minutes), which, true to its name, uses a variety of massage techniques to relax the back, shoulders, legs, arms and those all-important feet. Complimentary with all services is the resort’s Aquavana experience, which includes relaxing thermal cabins, soaking tubs and aquatic environments for all guests to enjoy and linger in for as long as they want. 6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.514.7000 

5. Golden Touch
A little TLC goes a long way at The Betsy Wellness Garden and Spa. The featured Inner Well-Being Massage ($99 for 70 minutes) is a unique experience designed to open the body’s chakras and release negative energy. Additionally, The Betsy Moment of Gold ($129 for 80 minutes) integrates a deep-tissue massage with aromatic oils and concludes with a 24K collagen mask to leave the face feeling youthful and luxurious. 1440 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, 305.531.6100
