Where to indulge in a couples spa treatment in Greater Miami & Miami Beach

No one ever needs an excuse to indulge in a luxurious, soothing massage, facial, mani-pedi or body wrap. This is even more true when you’re on vacation and in the mood to treat yourself. But occasionally, you or your partner might need a little coaxing, whether it’s because the treatment is new to them or you. Don’t be discouraged; be a duo! With a loved one by your side, trying a rubdown with heated bamboo sticks or a detox with Thai herbs is the easiest way to knock out the intimidation factor and, at the same time, up the ante on a romantic getaway.

Get A Room: Hotel Spas

Many of Miami’s hotels have their own signature spas that offer side-by-side treatments. Some even have a dedicated room for couples. For instance, at the storied Biltmore Hotel’s European-style spa in Coral Gables, the couples room leads into a double outdoor shower for extra time together.

At Lapis Spa at the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach, co-ed sections are designated in the Hamman and the Essence Mineral Pool, both of which are ideal for chilling before or after treatments – especially the popular Bleau Paradise For Two, Aromatic Hydrobath and Ocean Sensory Massage, which therapists say simulates the ebb and flow of waves on a shoreline. Or, if two are soon going to become three, schedule the Oh Baby Bleau for Two, a couples prenatal Swedish massage extravaganza.

If a single room or sharing space isn’t appealing, check out The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami. Couples can tailor any of the therapies in a VIP couples suite overlooking Biscayne Bay.

Enjoy The Waterfront

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach, a renowned spa hotel, is praised for its globally inspired hydrotherapy elements: column showers, a Roman waterfall, a Finnish steam room and an Arctic plunge pool. You can book treatments for more than one person, and the very Zen-minded spa, perched on the eastern edge of the Venetian Causeway, even offers waterfront yoga, acupuncture and guided meditation for groups.

Special Treatment

Even if a couples treatment isn’t listed explicitly, don’t hesitate to ask. The number-one credo among spas everywhere is to please, relax and soothe their clients. Miami’s spas have the customer in mind, down to the Florida-grown orange slices floating in the drinking water.
