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, runs until the end of August. This year's range of services and amenities includes 24-karat gold facials, CBD massages, personal cabanas, fitness classes, and free champagne.
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 2019.
