What Are the Best Spas to Recharge at After Art Basel


5 Post-Art Basel Spa Treatments to Bring You Back to Life

By Carla Torres | December 8, 2015 | Lifestyle Style & Beauty

Basel has officially come to an end, but your body will be paying the price for all that nonstop drinking, eating, and partying this week. To help you recover as quickly as possible, we found five effective treatments to sign up for right now.

Deep Sleep at Carillon Miami Beach

Carillon Miami Beach Spa

Catch up on all the sleep you missed out this past week with Carillon Miami Beach's deep sleep treatment. One hundred minutes of nirvana begin with a full body scrub and plant-based mud and oil exfoliation. From there, you'll be cocooned inside a warm-dry flotation spa bed (think water bed except you'll feel like you're being encapsuled in clouds), where you'll inevitably fall into a deep slumber for what seems like an eternity. Afterward, you'll rinse off and finish with a full body massage to balance out your nervous system and ease your overactive mind. Since you'll most likely not want to do anything after the treatment other than relax even more, we suggest the hotel's spectacular spa facilities including the igloo, crystal steam room, and herbal laconium. 6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-514-7000

Raindrop Therapy at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach

Ritz Carlton Spa

Feel the endless healing and detoxifying benefits of nature first hand as 11 different essential oils (from thyme and oregano to basil and peppermint) are dropped like rain along the spine and then massaged into your muscle tissues, specifically the hands, feet, and neck. Hot compresses are then applied to the body for greater absorption (lasting five to seven days) and overall relief of tension. 1 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach, 786-276-4000

Power Napping at The Miami Beach EDITION

The Miami Beach EDITION Hotel

We know we know: you spent so much time at Edition this past week the mere thought of going back there alone brings about exhaustion, but we bet you didn't engage in any aromatherapy relaxation or power napping while you were dancing the night away. Head back to the Edition's swanky yet serene spa for both and build your own massage while you're at it (the power nap is only $25 when you undergo any other service). Fun fact: twenty minutes of power napping is equivalent to four hours of sleep. Adios eye circles. 2901 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 786-257-4500

Hot Roc Massage at Eden Roc Miami Beach

Eden Roc Spa

Surrender to every tense muscle in your body and let it melt away with the Eden Roc's hot roc massage. If you've never had the absolute and warm pleasure of indulging in a hot stone massage, this will set the bar pretty high. Pro tip: we highly recommend booking the treatment for 80 minutes. 4525 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-531-0000

Post-Basel Basil Facial at Rik Rak Salon Boutique & Bar

Rik Rak Salon

What your face really needs after Basel is basil. A whole lot of it. And maybe a massage. Enter Rik Rak's post-Basel energizing basil facial, which starts with a botanical cleanser and scrub followed by a gentle serum massage and finishes off with a basil mask that'll tone, soften, and feel you leaving and looking as if it were three Basel's ago. 1428 Brickell Ave., Miami, 305-371-5577
