Some Great South Florida Spas


I just signed myself up for a day at the spa for two weeks from now (thank you Alyssa for convincing me that this is a good idea) 🙂  I’m so excited!  I haven’t even given myself a pedicure since my half marathon.  So I’m paying myself with interest!  My day at the Maui Spa in Boca Raton is going to look like this:

VIP Spa Treatment
Aromatherapy Foot Soak in the Kipahulu Relaxation Room
The Hana Experience: Aromatherapy steam room, Infrared sauna, The Maui Swiss Shower,       waterfall Deluge and Maui cold plunge pool
Maui Signature Massage
Maui Spa Pedicure
Spa Lunch on the rooftop

A warm ceramic room with heated semi-private seating niches and a starlit ceiling. The soft warmth of the gentle humidity is infused with fresh herbs warmed over a bed of heated rocks. This environment allows for a slow, gentle warming of the body to relax the muscles and improve the purification and detoxification process.

The HydroSpa incorporates a variety of massage fountains and body jets, providing gentle massage to the body at the optimal temperature for rebalancing and releasing tension.

Cool air and three Arctic Mist experiences – menthol, mint and eucalyptus – are enhanced by twinkling fiber optics. The cool, misty air cools the lungs, and consequently the blood, from within.

Radiant-heated loungers designed to relax muscles between thermal experiences surround the
