You need a spa day. We say that with confidence because we need a spa day. After years of living in Miami, we've learned that a spa day is a necessary coping mechanism for Miami life so we pre-empt a passive aggressive attitude and burnout from stress with regular trips to the spa. This is your friendly reminder that you too need to find your zen (more so if you're one of the numerous passive aggressive Miami-ans we've been coming across lately). Close your eyes for a moment and think of a reason you could use a spa day. You probably came up with 20, but stick with the first one or the best one—whichever will help you quiet that voice in your head that has kept you from absolute bliss.
Excellent. Now that we're all on the same page, you need a spa. We're spa aficionados so we've tried several around Miami but, outside of Miami Spa Month, we stick to our list of tried-and-true favorites. The most used and abused one on the list is the Standard Miami because they offer a wide range of treatments, they have one of the best hammams in Miami, and their pool has the best views. The newest addition to the list is The Spa at Conrad Miami.
You may remember Conrad Miami's rave reviews in our summer review of their restaurant Atrio or our Miami Spa Month 2015 picks. Well, earlier this month we stopped by to test out their seasonal treatments and we were blown away. If you're looking to try a new spa or a fun twist on your favorite treatment when you book your spa day, below are three Fall packages available this month only at The Spa at Conrad Miami. The best part? They all include complimentary glass of wine or champagne, 3-hour self parking, and access to the spa, fitness center, tennis courts and rooftop pool!
- Fall Into Balance ($149): one 50-minute pumpkin firming body wrap with full body exfoliation, hydrating body mask and skin firming treatment AND one 50-minute facial with a yam/pumpkin enzyme peel;
