Need a spa getaway on the go? Miami International Airport features two spas inside its corridors — talk about the perfect place to relax and unwind while traveling. Spas are popping up inside airports all over the country, igniting a trend of what’s known as POD, or pampering on demand.
Let’s face it, traveling (especially flying) can be stressful at times, but a massage or even a pedicure could do wonders to ease the anxiety and extend those precious hours of vacation time in Miami. Select airport spas offer semi-private quick massages or completely private full body massages, as well as other treatments like facials, manicures, pedicures and hair cuts — all available on the go.
At MIA, Jetsetter Spa is located in South Terminal H on the second level, near airlines like Delta, United, Air France and other carriers. The spa is situated next to specialty shops and cafes, making it a convenient location to pop in for a quick treatment. If you’re short on time, opt for a 10-minute manicure or a quick chair massage (offered in increments of 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes). If you have more time on your hands, book a full table massage, reflexology treatment or a luxurious spa pedicure.
Another option at the airport, XpresSpa is located at North Terminal D near gate D-10, where you’ll find American Airlines. The XpresSpa Relaxation Lounger allows you to customize your personal massage treatment with the push of a button. Not only do they offer quick massages and manicures, but you also have the option of booking the Xpres Facial: a 20-minute facial that quenches dry and thirsty skin. They offer hair trims, blow outs, waxing and of course, full body massages with head-to-toe relaxation.
Design elements in both spas reflect a sense of tranquility, featuring open floor plans, private treatment rooms, semi-private massage chairs and elegant decor. Focused on transforming the airport environment into a haven of rejuvenation, both Jetsetter Spa and XpresSpa offer the opportunity to eliminate unnecessary travel stress with signature treatments in a relaxing environment.
Ready to seek refuge from the hustle and bustle of air travel? The next time you experience a delay at the airport, shrug it off and head to one of the spas to take advantage of a pampering treatment. Both spas accept walk-ins. Or you can make reservations ahead of time, if you know your schedule. To book an appointment in advance, call Jetsetter Spa at (305) 876-0011, or XpresSpa at (305) 869-3571.
