New Spa Opens at Westin Diplomat

By: Kara Franker


With a prime beachfront location and magnificent views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa is celebrating the grand opening of its new spa and state-of-the-art fitness studio. 

Among the first things I noticed as I entered the 14,000 square-foot spa were the soft hues of blue and green -- just like the sea. One of the coolest design elements in the new facility is the wall of rain in the middle of the relaxation room. The sound of the water is so relaxing that I could have easily fallen asleep! 

Try the Energizing Scrub (20 min, $70) which uses a personalized aromatherapy body wash and natural exfoliating olive grains to leave the skin feeling smooth and the mind energeized. Or book the Heavenly Spa Signature massage (50 min, $140; 80 min, $210) and you'll slip away into heavenly bliss.

When you're ready to hit the gym, the new two-story workout facility has every cardio machine you can imagine, as well as free weights and yoga classes. 

Insider Tip: Thanks to the resort's New Balance Gear Lending program, you can leave your workout clothes at home and still try the new facility by borrowing athletic shoes and apprael for a small fee of $5. 

One of my favorite spaces in the new spa is the Spa Cafe, where you can admire the crashing waves through floor-to-ceiling windows, while you nosh on healthy salads and sushi. So after that spa treatment and yoga class, make sure you refuel and enjoy the beautiful view of one of Florida's fabulous beaches. 

If You Go: The "Westin Soothe Package" starts at $309 per night and includes spacious accommodations, a welcome spa amenity, $50 spa credit per stay, daily complimentary breakfast for two and a late 4 p.m. check out time. Book your stay by calling (954) 602-8400 or visit the resort online at Make sure you use the code "SPKG" when purchasing the package.
