3 Ways to Get Rid of Stress

By: Kara Franker


It's a three letter word that I dream about almost every day. Say the word "spa" to yourself, draw it out nice and long and it sounds like ahhhhhhhh -- which is exactly what you'll be feeling the second you shimmy into that plush white robe, slip on a pair of comfy sandals and indulge in one of these treatments I'm about to describe to you.

1. Let the Rhythm Move You at The Ritz-Carlton South Beach

If you've been following my blog posts as the Entertainment & Luxury Insider for VISIT FLORIDA, then you already know that I've never met a Ritz-Carlton that I didn't absolutely love. I'm obsessed. The same is true for The Ritz-Carlton South Beach. My favorite treatment at the spa is straight out of a Gloria Estefan soundtrack. It's called the Rhythm Massage and it combines the distinct flavor and culture of Miami using Latin inspired music to create a massage that will make you want to dance. My therapist rocked it with a combo of light touches and percussion like beats. Such a fun experience!

If You Go: The Ritz-Carlton South Beach is located at 1 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. Call (786) 276-4000 to book your spa appointment. 

2. Rekindle the Romance at Harbor Beach Marriott

Located on a gorgeous stretch of private beach in Fort Lauderdale, the Harbor Beach Marriott is the perfect place to unwind and maybe even spark a little romance. Escape to this revitalizing seaside oasis and book The Royal Reconnect package -- it's to-die-for. Here's what you'll get: 

  • Off-the-charts pampering for two, starting with a champagne welcome
  • 80-minute tropical tiki bliss massage for two
  • 80-minute revive facials for two
  • Signature citrus pedicures for two
  • Private beach access for the day
  • 5-course dinner for two prepared exclusively by the chef at Sea Level restaurant 

If You Go: Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is located at 3030 Holiday Drive inFort Lauderdale. Call (954) 525-4000 to book your spa appointment. 

3. Detox and Revive at Turnberry Isle

Imagine a grand, three-story spiral staircase that leads to a heavenly place where there's luxury and bliss wherever you turn. It's no wonder that The Spa at Turnberry Isle is always on Condé Nast Traveler’s “World’s Best Spas” list. The Detox and Revive treatment is perfect for times of overindulgence or when you're feeling a little sluggish. The treatment includes a body scrub, scalp and foot massage. You'll experience a combination of zesty citrus oils that will invigorate the system and leave you full of energy. 

If You Go: Turnberry Isle is located at 19999 West Country Club Drive in Aventura, Fla . Call (305) 932-6200 to book your spa appointment. 

Are you ready to hit the spa? It's time to kick stress to the curb and treat yourself to a relaxed Florida vacation.
