Summer can be a very busy season, so that means it's time to plan a Florida getaway that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I've discovered a resort that has it all: a fabulous spa, luxe accommodations, located directly on the beach, killer views and tons of fun stuff to do!
The Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa is located on the largest stretch of secluded beach in Palm Beach County. On the property you'll find a sparkling oceanfront pool, hammocks tied between palm trees and a 7,500 square-foot spa and salon.
Time to schedule a little pampering!
Michelle Marr, the resort's Director of Spa Operations suggests you start with a relaxing massage. "Our 80 minute Warm Stone Massage is frequently requested because it is truly sublime!" she said.
You are going to melt into spa heaven with this treatment. First, warm coconut milk is massaged into your skin to hydrate and soothe. Then the therapist uses smooth, warm basalt stones to provide heat and relief to sore and aching muscles, using your choice of Pure Fiji coconut and macadamia nut cold-pressed oils. An exquisite foot reflexology completes this unique experience. Ahhhh, sounds amazing, doesn't it?
Michelle also shares her top three summer spa tips:
1. Arrive in Time to Relax:
We encourage all of our guests to arrive early to enjoy our amenities. A cup of organic tea with fresh fruit, a relaxing steam or glass of our signature dark, drinkable chocolate are guaranteed to enhance their spa experience.
2. Take Care of Your Skin:
Wear sunscreen every day! Hydro Peptide makes an excellent UVA/UVB SPF 30 that automatically adjusts to your unique skin tone. A sun burn could prevent you from thoroughly enjoying your spa treatments, not to mention, prematurely aging your skin.
3. Stay Hydrated:
Drinking plenty of water before and after your treatments not only hydrates but helps to eliminate toxins from your body. We also serve Pure Inventions Antioxidant Fruit Extracts at the spa to add to your water. They are sugar and gluten-free and provide an excellent boost to your immune system.
Insider Tip: The resort is offering some great summer rates including a special where if you book two nights, you get the third for free. Yep, free. Or check out their Stars, Stripes and Sandcastles special for the Fourth of July!
