A Local Staycation

By: Laura Reece, Travel Agent and Expert

Staycations are more popular than ever; and we’ve all been working hard preventing COVID-19 from ruling our lives. So why not relax and pamper yourself at some of Florida’s best day spas; most are just a short drive away!

One of the most important parts of a spa holiday is relieving stress. The best spas offer a wide range of treatments and activities to help you achieve this aim. Classes such as Pilates, Tai Chi, and yoga are popular, and therapeutic massages, facials and mud baths complement the self-care rituals. These activities combine to improve your flexibility, eliminate muscle tensions, and improve your overall well-being.

Some of our favorite Florida spas include:

ESPA at Acqualina, Sunny Isles Beach – The first of its kind in the U.S., ESPA features groundbreaking treatments in a stunning, two-story space overlooking the Atlantic. Embracing the legendary European Day Spa philosophy that each visit is a journey, your experience begins with our signature selection of Ayurvedic-infused holistic, restorative and meditative treatments for face and body.

Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, Naples – This modern spa adds complete relaxation to a stay at this venerable hotel, already one of Florida’s most relaxing resorts. A deep-body massage followed by an Espresso Mud Detoxifying Wrap will leave you on cloud nine.

Omni Amelia Island Resort, Amelia Island – The resort’s 20-room, all-natural spa features a meditation garden, plus nontoxic, paraben-free products and services, including a Chill CBD Massage that targets pain and inflammation using full spectrum CBD products and specialized massage techniques.

Eau Spa, Palm Beach – The 42,000 square-foot Eau Palm Beach Spa is the epitome of pure indulgence, with champagne and cupcakes, unparalleled service and the finest amenities. Take a moment to “Pause, Play and Perfect” in the 19 treatment rooms with customized scents, music and lighting. Play with energy and stop in at the Scrub and Polish Bar. Re-invigorate with results-driven beauty treatments that combine the latest technologies, blended to perfection.

Amrit Ocean, Singer Island – Opening in April 2021, this luxury residence and hotel sets itself apart with a multi-layered approach to wellness that elevates the mind, body and spirit. Here you’ll find extensive services and modalities rooted in five pillars of wellness: mindfulness, nutrition, fitness, relaxation and sleep.

If you’re looking for something a bit more technical, consider visiting Lickstein’s Med Spa in Palm Beach Gardens – treatments include everything from relaxing massages, to hydrafacials to eyelash extensions, Coolsculpting and injectables.

And for those who do not want to leave the comfort of their own home, why not bring spa-quality products to you? Image Skincare, owned by local resident Janna Ronert, has developed a line of products with naturally effective, mindful formulas that deliver real results. Enhance your beauty from within with YANA Daily Collagen shots, or improve your skin’s appearance with their award-winning products such as Ageless total overnight retinol masque or their Clear Cell medicated acne lotion.

Whatever route you choose, now is the perfect time to take care of YOU!
