The Ultimate Spa Weekend in Delray
April 21, 2014 | by beth landman | Pursuits
Flotation tanks, detoxifying juices, high-tech blow-outs, cuisine for wellness, oceanside villa accommodations—the gang's all here.
Kick back with WiFi and chair-side iPads at Cloud 10 Blow-Dry Bar and Hair Salon.
Delray may be a great town for revelers, but it’s also ideal for a "spa-cation." Here's where to hang your hat, and your spa robe, on a weekend visit.
STAY: Villas by the Sea at Marriott Delray
These oceanview villas have their own pool and concierge, and run up to $2,000 per night. (No wonder Donald Trump Jr. was spotted hanging out in the lobby.) The new luxury accommodations are ideally situated, adjoining both the fitness center and the jewel box spa, which offers a full array of massages, scrubs, facials, and wraps. 10 N. Ocean Blvd., Delray, 1-888-236-2427
PRIMP: Cloud 10 Blow-Dry Bar and Hair Salon
Each styling chair is replete with an iPad and WiFi, and shampoo chairs have built-in shiatsu massage. Blow-outs and makeovers are $40 each, but the salon offers a full range of hair and beauty services, as well as free-flowing Champagne and chardonnay. 32 SE 2nd Ave., Delray Beach, 561-303-3000
Husband and wife team Jacqueline and Matthew Sheridan offer a full range of refreshing and nutritious organic, cold-pressed juices. We like the Detox Rox (chock-full of greens, coconut water, lemon, and ginger) and the Intuition Smoothie, made of kale, oat milk, almond butter, cinnamon, honey, and banana. Located in the Pineapple Grove section of town, the bar also serves homemade gluten-free snacks like banana bread and vegan brownies. 6 N.E. 5th Ave., Delray, 561-278-6122
Restaurateur Burt Rapoport has added an “Eat Well, Be Well’’ menu to this modern American restaurant, which has a lush outdoor patio. Dishes like citrus marinated mahi with wild rice-quinoa pilaf and lemony steamed veggies are listed with calories, fat, sodium, cholesterol, carbs, sugar, fiber, and protein. 16850 Jog Road, Delray Beach, 561-638-1949
Whether you attend a Qi Gong class, chill out in a flotation tank, indulge in an acupuncture facial, seek astrological counseling, or simply read a book while sipping banana graham cracker tea, you will enjoy the zen vibe of this holistic haven. 103 Northeast 2nd Ave., Suite 103, Delray, 561-455-2147
