It’s Miami Spa Month

Every July, a beautiful thing happens. Spa treatments become affordable, thanks to Miami Spa Month and The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. The best part, the word “month” is actually a fib. Miami Spa Month runs from July 1 to August 31, which is more like Miami Spa Month + bonus month thrown in. With treatments at just $99, there’s a lot of massages to be had, manis and pedis to procure and new spa locations to try out. And a whole 60 days in which to enjoy them.

I started my Miami Spa Month adventure at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau. The journey began with a Swedish deep tissue massage. Afterward, it was off to the water journey, complete with heated mineral pool, massaging rain shower, hot tub and eucalyptus steam room (all thrown in for your $99). The rain room, where you endure warm rain pelting your aches and pains with just the right amount of pressure while lying on a marble slab, was by far my favorite part. And I was lucky enough to run into fellow blogger Kelly Saks of Kelly’s Kloset, so we got to share the spa experience together. With couples massages on the menu, you can also bring a friend along and enjoy the day with a pal. Find the list of spas and services here. Summer in Miami just got that much more tolerable.
