Best Florida Spas
Year-round recreation and loads of sunshine make Florida an attractive option for the athletic- and wellness-bound. But, let’s face it; sometimes all you really want is a relaxing massage or facial in the hushed realm of a world-class spa. Florida has more than a few. From the Gulf coast to the Atlantic, Florida's shores include spas that will leave you feeling good inside and out.
Treatment to Try: The Moonlight Massage, offered on full-moon nights, is a 90-minute massage set in the spa’s Oceanfront Sanctuary -- a 400-square foot oceanfront facility with outdoor treatment areas and your own private shower. The treatment starts at sunset and continues as the moon rises over the ocean in the night sky.
Treatment to Try: The Herbal Thai Compress Ritual, with heated compresses filled with herbs such as lemongrass and ginger, applied to the body between massage techniques.
Treatment to Try: The Champagne Shimmer Body Luster treatment uses Champagne oil to smooth your skin and add sparkle to your body’s contours. Drink it up!
Treatment to Try: Swe-Thai Massage blends Eastern and Western practices, such as soft tissue Swedish massage and yoga-inspired Asian techniques, and includes a complimentary ritual bath led by a therapist who’ll guide you through various soaking stations in the mosaic-tiled whirlpool area.
Treatment to Try: The Bamboo Massage plays on the spa’s Asian influences with bamboo sticks applied to the body in a treatment that’s choreographed to move your muscles into relaxing positions and stimulate circulation.
Treatment to Try: The West Indian Lime Scalp and Body Massage infuses your senses with the smell of citrus, meant to invigorate and energize, during an 80-minute head-to-toe treatment. Warm lime blossom and ginger oil are key healing ingredients.
