Wellness tailored to guests is the impetus behind W South Beach’s awe-inspiring new spa renovation as it presents the Away Spa by W South Beach—a 9,000-square-foot luxury wellness and beauty sanctuary. Rather than simply offering clients a list of standard services, the lush spa takes true indulgence to new heights with its diverse list of state-of-the-art treatments, as well as the ability to customize your spa day to your specific needs and desires.

“Tell us what your perfect spa day looks like and the Away Spa at W South Beach can create it,” says Kristen Laukaitis, Away Spa at W South Beach director. With its renovation comes a jaw-dropping interior design that breathes new life and lightness into the space. “We flipped the spa concept on its head—moving away from the dark and isolated environments often associated with spas to one filled with light and calm, natural textures,” says Laukaitis.
Utilizing all-natural, imported materials and rich greenery throughout the space, the spa keeps wellness top of mind and reflects the property’s connection to the outdoors beautifully in the serene, airy setting. Spagoers can lounge on the outdoor terrace or relax in the lounge sipping detox elixirs or coconut and chlorophyll-infused waters. Cool off in the eucalyptus-infused limestone steam showers or disconnect from the digital world as you put your cell phone in its sleeping bag and sink into one of the spa’s plush couches in the relaxation area.

Of course, the treatments far exceed typical spa offerings with the option of made-to-measure customizations and personalized rituals. From detox massages to hydrafacials with lymphatic drainage or firming and sculpting body treatments, the menu caters to whichever area of the body needs the most nourishment and love. Rid the travel muscle kinks with the Man Kind Massage or renew and plump your skin with the collagen boosting and lifting facial. If you’re pressed for time, they even offer on-the-go treatments, from the 25-minute massage chair to the Theragun recovery relief or brow shaping services.
At the Away Spa at W South Beach, the ease and tranquility of vacation living thrive and the hustle of day-to-day life finds respite. Relax, let go and let the serene oasis work its magic. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, @wsouthbeach
