A seaside wellness resort offering nontraditional spa therapies like never before. Launching this fall, Carillon Miami Wellness Resort will offer Miami locals a new treatment coined Salt Float Bath Therapy, using 800 pounds of salt and allowing the body to recover from stress and pain. By resting in a deep recreational state, blood flow will be stimulated through muscle tissues and natural endorphins will be released, giving out alpha waves associated with relaxation and meditation. And if you find it impossible to retreat from this ultimate escape, splurge on a 3-minute Cryo-therapy treatment which utilizes old age science—combined with cutting-edge equipment—to relieve fatigue, soreness, and inflammation, and accelerate metabolism for weight loss. 6801 Collins Ave., 305-514-7000

A chocolate lover’s dream, staycation goers can satisfy their sweet tooth, rest and relax, and leave smelling—and tasting—utterly delicious and tantalizingly scrumptious. 1901 Collins Ave., 305-695-3100
Fall down the rabbit hole at Alan Faena’s imaginative wonderland and set foot into the Tierra Santa Healing House donned with one of the largest hammams available on the eastern seaboard. Spanning 22,000 square feet, this utopian destination situated in Miami Beach features shaman-developed body-healing rituals that are just as magical as Faena’s madcap world of beloved entertainment and highbrow culture. Special to Tierra Santa Healing House, we suggest pampering yourself with the unique Hammam Rose Ritual that begins on a rose quartz-infused marble slab using lemongrass and mimosa scrub. A personalized cleansing ritual, this aromatic and jasmine scented journey will purify the body and calm the senses with ingredients like volcanic clay, calendula, and precious rose oil. 3201 Collins Ave., 844-798-9716

And if you can’t get enough of these sacred minerals, then we recommend splurging on the 24 Karat Gold Facial that repairs and firms skin using the anti-aging powers of gold. 2341 Collins Ave., 305-604-6792
