Relax at a Florida Spa
It’s easy to find rest and relaxation in Florida. With the soft, lapping waves at the beaches, the warm weather, the lush greenery and wildlife along trails and friendly hospitality everywhere you go, finding that happy spot comes naturally.
But if you’re truly looking for that extra dose of TLC, Florida spas are among some of the best in the world and will get you feeling restored and rejuvenated in no time. Whether you’re seeking a hot stone massage, a citrus scrub pedicure, a soothing facial or just a good, long soak in a sauna, spas in Florida have got you covered – in some cases, literally from head to toe.
Those looking for the best spas in Florida can find them all over the state, from funky little boutique spas in urban centers to upscale beachfront hotels.
Visiting resorts and spas in Florida is like being queen (or king) for a day among as a break from sightseeing, shopping, playing, wining and dining. Taking a day, or even a few hours, to yourself for pampering is good for the soul and will take your much-needed vacation to the next level.
Many of the top spas are conveniently located in some of Florida’s best hotels and near popular beaches and retail districts, making it easy to drop in for a nice, long soak, scrub, rub or polish.
One longtime favorite spa among visitors is tucked away in tiny Safety Harbor, which has the oldest continually running spa in the United States and is built around natural healing springs. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation resort has a meditation garden and uses natural ingredients in its masks, massage oils and lotions.
Miami area spas are famously known for being luxuriously indulgent and innovative, including South Beach’s Bliss Spa, which has seven treatment rooms playing upbeat tunes, as well as The Betsy hotel’s beautiful and zen-inspired outdoor spa that operates from morning hours until well into the night.
Many spas offer group packages for couples, wedding parties, corporate events, ladies’ group getaways, expectant mothers and even little ones for a fun mother-daughter mani-pedi day.
A lot of spas also offer a healthy, light lunch as an add-on for those who are planning to spend a half or whole day at their facilities. And those who prefer all-natural products on their skin are in luck. Natural salts, citrus acids from oranges and lemons and other ingredients are plentiful in Florida.
