August 10, 2014 | by Lane Nieset | Style & Beauty
Gather a group of girlfriends and spend the day at one of these beauty destinations offering specials for Miami Spa Month.
The relaxation room at mySpa.
Throughout August, mySpa at the InterContinental Miami is adding one of its signature treatments to the Spa Month menu: the 80-minute Urban Warrior. Perfect for your girlfriends who've been feeling stressed lately, the treatment uses methods that once helped heal ancient Thai and Hawaiian warriors, like steamed herbal compresses to combat muscle tension and a mixture of lomilomi massage and Thai stretching to leave you feeling rejuvenated. 100 Chopin Plaza, Miami, 305-372-4444
Take a personal day from work and head to Lapis, the Spa at Fontainebleau for a workday special available Monday-Thursday. Our pick is the 90-minute Take a Load Off My Back Massage with an Organic Renewal Facial and Lapis Mineral Soak. The treatment starts with a 25-minute deep tissue massage to get the kinks out before moving on to a 25-minute facial with vegan products (sans gluten, parabens, or nut oils). End the experience with a mineral soak and join your friends at La Cote for the spa lunch special. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-4772
There's nothing like girl talk over a good mani and pedi, and ELLE Spa at Eden Roc Miami Beach has the perfect package. The 105-minute ELLE Signature Manicure and Pedicure hydrates and softens your skin with a custom blend of warmed avocado oil, pomegranate extract, and essential oils like verbena, mandarin, and jasmine. After your treatment, take advantage of the spa’s amenities and head to the sauna, eucalyptus steam room, or sensory shower. 4525 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-5585
If your group is looking to stock up on spa products while indulging in a treatment, book the Sheer Bliss: Spa and Shop treatment at Bliss Spa at W South Beach. The 75-minute treatment is a body buff that exfoliates and smooths skin and includes a carrot mulch and hot oil rubdown, a warm milk and honey drizzle, a wrap, and a sesame seed and sea salt scrub, ending with a Vichy shower. After getting pampered, go for a Bliss product shopping spree (included in the special) with the girls. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-938-3123
Join a friend at The Spa at The Setai by THÉMAÉ for a 60-minute Asian Fusion Massage for Two that uses the Paris-based brand's products crafted from four types of tea. Relax in one of the spa suites with a calming treatment that targets built-up tension. The massage ends with a gift for both of you: a bottle of Gold Shimmering Dry Oil to give your skin a healthy glow. 2001 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-520-6900
