If you're in need of rest and relaxation, good news: Miami Spa Month returns July 1. The two-month promotion offers the city's most exclusive spa treatments at discounted pricing.
The citywide initiative, curated by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB), runs until the end of August. This year's range of services includes poolside massages, personal cabanas, facials, hot stones, tea-inspired aromatherapy, champagne-centric treatments, and free fitness classes.
"This year, Miami Spa Month is embracing more than just indulgent treatments," GMCVB president and CEO William D. Talbert says. "Wellness and mindfulness are an important part of the pampering experience, from complimentary yoga to meditation and barre."
Expect sizable savings, such as treatments priced at $109 or $139 for 50- to 80-minute sessions. Because it's difficult to keep track of all the discounts, we did the math for you. All you have to do is lie back and relax. Here are the ten best deals of Miami Spa Month 2018.
