There is no shortage of spa experience opportunities during Miami Spa Months, which runs through Aug. 31. One of the “must experience’’ spas during this time – or any time of year – is Acqualina Spa by ESPA.
Located in the Five Star Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, Acqualina Spa by ESPA is one of South Florida’s top spas, featuring 11 treatment rooms, crystal steam rooms (my favorite), Arctic ice fountains, Finnish saunas, Experience Shower, and relaxation lounges with Himalayan salt walls. The co-ed, outdoor sun deck includes an oceanfront swimming pool and Roman waterfall Jacuzzi. The Spa lunch menu includes a Bento box, along with champagne and wine.
There’s really no better way to experience Acqualina Resort & Spa, which sits in 4.5 acres of beach front, than at Acqualina Spa by ESPA, particularly with the resort’s Florida Resident package that includes 15 percent off best available rates based on a two-night minimum stay. For those who don’t opt for overnight, the Spa Months special allows guests to stay for a full day of luxury.
“It gives them kind of a staycation,” said Spa Director Catherine Davalle.
The resort’s two Spa Month offers are a 50-Minute Swedish Massage featuring essential oils of Sandalwood and Rose Geranium ($139); and 50-Minute Summer Firming Facial ($109) that specifically concentrates on reviving the skin’s natural moisture and pays particular attention to the delicate eye area, helping to minimize the appearance of fine lines. A scalp massage completes the treatment.
“Everybody likes a good massage,’’ Davalle said. “This is a good opportunity to enjoy a full body massage.
“We have people coming back each month and getting the massage and facial. It’s an opportunity for people to splurge and make it a great spa experience.’’
