An Urban Spa Oasis at Conrad Miami
By Kara Franker
Escape to a spa oasis located in the heart of downtown Miami's Brickell neighborhood.
Perched 24 stories into the sky, the spa at the Conrad Miami hotel is a great place to unplug from the city's bustling, 24/7 lifestyle.
The 24-hour fitness center features the latest technology in work-out equipment along with jaw-dropping Miami skyline views.
We chatted with Spa Manager Paola Pardo.
Q: What makes the spa such a great place for guests to come and unwind?
Paola: The Spa at Conrad Miami is an intimate, boutique spa that allows private experiences for all guests so they can relax and unwind, without feeling overwhelmed. Our professional spa technicians customize each treatment to best fit the needs of each of our guests. Our spa is located on the 24th floor of the Conrad Miami and the layout is designed to make you feel like you are the only guest in the spa, ensuring the utmost in privacy. Our unique pedicure stations make our guest feel like royalty and our hydro-therapy bath is designed to help guests with sore muscles or just to relax.
Q: Tell me about the Jet Lag Cure. What makes this particular treatment so special?
Paola: Our Jet Lag Cure treatment is one of our signature treatments. Long distance travel is both physically and mentally exhausting, and this treatment works on both of those areas to help the guests recover fully from their travels and the stresses that travel brings. Invigorating dry brushing starts this treatment off to stimulate circulation. This is followed by specialized stretching technique and massage. Carefully selected essential oils are incorporated to encourage relaxation and revitalization.
Q: If you were planning the ultimate spa day for someone, what would it be?
Paola: If we were planning the ultimate spa day for someone, we would recommend our spa day package. This starts off with one of our 50-minute body treatment of choice then is followed by a 50-minute Swedish massage. Following that is a 50-minute Personalized Organic Facial and then a Prim and Polished Manicure and Foot Revival Pedicure. It’s the ultimate in relaxation!
Q: Miami is an awesome place to live, work and, of course, visit. What do you love about the location?
Paola: What I love about Miami is not only the cultural diversity but that you can step out of your door and have everything that you would like to do and anything that you need only a couple of blocks away. Great dining, spa experiences, parks, shopping and most importantly, spectacular views.
