Miami Spa Month 2017 is already in full swing, but lucky for locals, we’re in that wonderful month of the year (August!) where Miami Spice and Miami Spa Month overlap. From now through August 31, massages, facials, full-body treatments and more at Miami’s most high-end spas start at just $109. And after you’re fully pampered, you can round it out with a $39, three-course Miami Spice dinner at one of your favorite Magic City restaurants. (We recommend our top picks, here.) And stay tuned for the best of the best of Miami Spice in an upcoming post.
Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach
This three-story, 40,000-square-foot spa invites relaxation-seekers to get in sync with the healing properties of nature’s most basic element: water. Before you even get to your spa package, wander through rain tunnels, steam room, therapeutic showers, jet baths and Jacuzzis as part of Lapis’ “Water Journey,” drink a cup of herbal tea in the lounge, or just read a magazine on a plush chaise lounge. From Monday through Thursday, get the Spa Month package and choose from an aromatic 80-minute Swedish massage, an 80-minute silk collagen anti-aging facial, or a 100-minute head-to-toe rescue starting at just $109. Or, step it up a notch with the “Twice the Pampering” package, where you can get two treatments in one day for just $199. Lapis Spa is located at 4441 Collins Avenue. Discounted valet parking costs $15 and is valid for up to five hours. Reservations required.
Tierra Santa Healing House at Faena Miami Beach
Walk into this spa and you won’t know where to look first—this 22,000 square-foot colorful sanctuary is as extravagant as it is serene. For a real treat, get the $199 Bathing Ritual & Tierra Santa Deep Tissue Massage. To start, lather up in your choice of muds, butters, essential oils and scrubs, and then spend time in the wet spa and wet scrub rooms. After that, you can get an 80-minute deep-tissue massage with warm babassu butter, which is used in Brazil to alleviate aches and pains. Tierra Santa Healing House is located at 3201 Collins Avenue. Discounted valet parking is available with spa validation. Reservations required.

You can get a Serenity Facial, a Swedish Massage, or an Island Glow body treatment for $109, or a Deep Massage for $139, but the real treat is the $199 Island Escape Package.

Icon Brickell Spa
It’s hard to know where to look first in this 28,000-square-foot urban spa—there’s a movie theater, a floating library and a water lounge, everything is covered in white marble, and in the midst of it all, a massive yellow chandelier glimmers over a shallow, ankle-deep pool. And just like its décor, the treatments will blow your mind. During Miami Spa Month, you’ll find a list of treatments starting at $109. Choose the 80-minute Hydrafacial for just $139!

The Bamford Haybarn Spa at the 1 Hotel South Beach
This all-white, eco-inspired spa is all about nature. Originally based in the UK, it is currently the only Bamford Haybarn Spa in the entire U.S. During Miami Spa Month, there are a lot of treatments you can choose from, but our favorite is the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Priced at just $139 through August 31, this relaxing and re-mineralizing massage uses warm, hand-carved Himalayan salt stones and signature oils to improve sleep, reduce inflammation and improve overall well being.
