Miami isn’t just for all-night partying, Florida sunshine and endless key lime pie. Instead, take some time out at these luxurious spa retreats.

Besides its world-famous nightlife and sizzling food scene, Miami is also devoted to wellness. Spas can be found in even the smallest hotels – ideal for groups of girls, loved-up couples and anyone needing some me time. These lavish spaces are some of the best, embracing cutting-edge technology and innovative treatments alongside more holistic therapies, including astrology, hypnotherapy and mindfulness.

This sumptuous ESPA spa is made for day-long lingering rather than in-and-out treatments. Offering indulgent body treatments alongside innovative cryotherapy anti-aging techniques, the spa also offers private yoga lessons, a Himalayan salt wall, an in-house nutritionist and a healthy spa menu of salads and juices. Best of all, the outdoor spa pool with its Roman waterfall Jacuzzi makes for dreamy days gazing out to the Atlantic Ocean in between treatments.

Wellness is taken seriously at this North Beach resort. There are over 20 fitness classes every day, a gym with ocean views, a climbing wall and even a wellness menu at the hotel restaurant. In fact, if a treatment is not offered by the spa here, it probably doesn’t exist. Both alternative and traditional treatments are available, including the more unusual IV therapy and quantum energy evaluation. The spa was also one of the first in the country to offer the Botox alternative Jeuveau.
