There’s only one thing better than a relaxing spa day, and that’s a relaxing spa day just steps from your bed. Next time you want a way to treat yourself, look no further than these luxurious hotel spas—all which have earned four and five stars from Forbes Travel Guide.

Five-Star Spas

The five-star Remède Spa Bal Harbour, at The St. Regis Bal Harbour, has 11 treatment rooms, a Vichy rain shower, a Finnish sauna and an aromatic steam room. A sleek and contemporary design invites you in, while extra touches—like heated marble floors, cashmere throws, an indulgent spa menu and poolside cabanas—make you stay.

Another five-star spa is The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, which has just 11 treatment rooms and six VIP suites spread across three floors. As soon as you walk through its doors, you’ll be welcomed with a cool raspberry hibiscus tea and a chilled towel. Enjoy both on a teal chaise lounge in one of the many the relaxation areas. For the ultimate serenity, start your treatment with a dip in The Kohler shower. This state-of-the-art experience has adjustable jets, sounds and lighting that can simulate a range of different environments.

The third and final spa with a five-star Forbes rating is Acqualina Spa by ESPA, a 20,000-square-foot retreat inside the exquisite Acqualina Resort & Spa. The epitome of serenity, it has 15 state-of-the-art treatment rooms, healing heat and water rituals, different relaxation lounges, the private Royal Spa Suite, a healthy spa menu and an outdoor terrace that looks out at the Atlantic Ocean.

Four-Star Spa

Steeped in Asian elegance, a visit to The Setai, Miami Beach feels like an escape in itself. Book a massage at its tranquil, four-room The Spa by THÉMAÉ and you’ll experience serenity like no other. Rated four stars, this secluded spa invites you to treat yourself to Balinese massages, bamboo body scrubs, full-body “ceremonies,” rejuvenating oxygen facials and more.

Indulge In These Other Luxe Spas

It takes a lot to be of Ritz-Carlton caliber, and Exhale at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, South Beach has it. Spread across 10,000 square feet of oceanfron space, this spa has its own full-service gym and gym classes, fitness boutique, nail salon, sauna, steam room and separate men's and women's relaxation areas. Each of its private suites are actually designed as meditative spaces, where the sound of crashing waves and rustling palms help spa-goers fully disconnect from the hustle and bustle of reality. A visit here is a wellness journey for your mind, boty and soul.

Aside from its distinguished location inside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Lapis at the Fontainebleau is most known for its ethereal water journey. Offering 30 treatment rooms, this 40,000-square-foot spa has a 75-foot mineral pool, mineral water jet bath, rain tunnel, eucalyptus infusion steam room and a relaxing deluge shower, all of which will relax, rejuvenate and purify you as you start your spa experience.

Drift off into a world of relaxation at the Aquanox Spa at Trump International Beach Resort, which has six soothing treatment rooms. Steeped in luxury, the 8,000-square-foot spa offers every kind of experience guests could want: like a milk and honey body polish, different massages, hydrating facials, scalp treatments and more.

Home to the largest European-inspired thermal experiences in a beach setting, The Spa at Carillon Miami Beach follows the European Wellness Spa tradition of cleansing, warming and aiding relaxation. Focusing on holistic wellness, guests can go here for health lectures and seminars, consultations with the spa’s medical director, multi-day wellness retreats, aromatherapy steam rooms, a Finnish sauna, an open-air HydroSpa and more. When you’re not being pampered, take one of the gym’s more than 200 fitness classes or find your own personal paradise on the spa’s open-air deck.

As if there weren’t enough reasons to visit the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, its phone-free Spa is truly one of a kind. The 15,000-square-foot facility has six treatment rooms, two spa cabanas, a Turkish hammam, a sauna, a steam room, a boutique and a state-of-the-art gym. Inspired by its Surfside surroundings, the spa’s Joseph Dirand design feels a lot like a beach cabana with white detailed wood paneling, rattan elements and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Head to the basement level of The Miami Beach EDITION and you’ll find an 18,000 square-foot oasis of tranquility: The Spa. It has EDITION written all over it—in its signature scent, curated music, custom daybeds draped with vintage Moroccan rugs and the candle-lit Relaxation Lounge. There are nine treatment rooms, including a custom hammam room, a Beauty Lounge, and a detox room with a steam shower and an infrared sauna. Fitness gurus will want to take advantage of the 24-hour gym or RoyaFit yoga experiences, beach boot camps, fitness classes and tailored personal training programs.

A visit to Miami's first South American-influenced spa, the colorful Tierra Santa Healing House, starts with handcut Tierra Santa soap and a therapist-guided ritual through powerful, rejuvenating showers. Spread across 22,000 square feet, the spa takes up the entire third floor of the Faena Hotel Miami Beach. It has the largest double-height hammam in Miami, an herbal steam room and a tepidarium with heated stone beds. When you want to get a workout in, try the spa’s state-of-art gym, 1,000-square-foot movement studio or daily outdoor fitness classes. Like its surrounding hotel, details here are important—like a larger-than-life rose bouquet at the entrance, walls covered with paper art installations by Manuel Ameztoy and Juan Gatti floral murals.The spa’s own product line, made with ingredients from the Amazonian rainforest, is an added perk.
