Where to indulge in a couples spa treatment in Miami

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. Therapies can prove daunting, whether it’s because the treatment is new or just new to 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

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 pre-natal 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

If you want to enjoy every minute of Miami’s fabulous weather, consider scheduling a couples massage on a pool deck or in a cabana. At Ciel Spa at the Delano in South Beach, single treatments can be customized to service two – in an outdoor solarium, no less.

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.

Add On Specials

Don’t settle for a mere massage just because you’re a couple. Elemis Spa, located in the Shops at Merrick Park in Coral Gables, allows you to upgrade your couples massage with a variety of indulgences, including hot stone therapy, hair and scalp treatments and body glosses in private rooms for pairs.

At the unique, Western Australia-based Jurlique Spa in the Mayfair Hotel in Coconut Grove, you can fashion an entire organic, holistic vacation around therapies in the couples suite. In addition to massage, choose from paraffin treatments to detox wraps, with plenty of foot, hand, body scrubs, and face masks in between.

In fact, it’s often said that the couple who peels together, stays together. And don’t assume that just because a resort sounds a certain way to your ear, it won’t offer something for couples. Even sports-centric The Spa at Shula's in Miami Lakes has a Couples Connection special that combines massage with Organic Cane Sugar Body Scrub and Tropical Pedicures for both of you.

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 native Florida orange slices floating in the drinking water.
