It's Miami Spa Month through the end of August (yes, it's technically two months long), which means it's easier to upgrade your Miami hotel stay with a little pampering. Most treatments on the Spa Month menu are $99 (plus tax and gratuity), with some higher-end services at $129.

One South Beach hotel in particular has extended its spa month specials to the entire family, with treatments for kids and even pups available. The Betsy South Beach, the nicest hotel located right on Ocean Drive, welcomes guests with little ones and four-legged friends to its Zen-like Betsy Wellness Garden, Miami’s only open air rooftop spa, to try one of these custom treatments.

Hyatt Adds Marilyn Monroe Theme to Several Resort Spas

June 22, 2015 at 7:39 PM | by | ()

More than 50 years after her death, Marilyn Monroe is still a beauty icon. So much so that Hyatt Resorts around the country in locations like Maui, Monterey and Orlando are partnering with Marilyn Monroe Spas and adding the themed spas to select properties. Along with treatment rooms, the spas have “glamour rooms,” a social space where gals can have their makeup and hair done in a fun, lively atmosphere.

The New Spa at the Grand Hyatt Playa Del Carmen Is Totally Shamanic

  Site Where: Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Is it one of those floatation tanks? A hidden blue lagoon? A shaman’s watering hole, surely?

None of the above – it’s the Cenote Spa at the forthcoming Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen on Mamitas Beach on the Riviera Maya, which opens on Monday.

The look is inspired by cenotes – the swimming holes found all over the Yucatan Peninsula. A swimming hole with added massage? Yes please!

This Spanish Hotel Has a 'Spa Sommelier' to Help Guests Pick Their Treatment

The historic Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine hotel is located in a restored 12th-century abbey and winery in Spain’s Duero winegrowing region just one hour by train from Madrid, and we think that they want to get you a wee bit tipsy for your next spa treatment.

The hotel is opening its new El Santuario Spa on July 1 and its signature oenotherapy treatment menu includes a Spa Sommelier to help choose the treatment that’s right for you.

And this is how it works.

Virgin Hotels Unveil Their Spa Concept at The Virgin Chicago

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 203 N. Wabash [map], Chicago, IL, United States, 60601

Virgin Hotel Chicago is the hotel that keeps on, er, hotel-ing. Not long after opening its rooftop extravaganza and its spunky diner concept, the Virgin has now unveiled its five-treatment room spa, simply called The Spa at Virgin Hotels. (We think Spa Virgin would have worked just as well. #thatjustus.)

Geared towards "business travelers and busy locals", the spa treatments are completely customizable from the amount of time of the treatment (30, 45 or 60 minutes) to the primary focus (anti-aging, sore legs, manscaping, etc.)

The menu features both massages and body treatments as well as facials, nail services and waxing (the latter two are called "Nailed" and "Stripped", FTW.) The Spa also features a unisex hamman for which day passes to this can be purchased for $15.

With Red Flower's Palo Santo toiletries in the guest rooms, it's no surprise that there are Red Flower products and specialty scents are used in the massages, body treatments, nail services and some facials. Massages start at $55 and go up to $120. Meanwhile, EmerginC (not to be confused with the powdered vitamins you add to water) and their scientific organic products are used in most of the facials including the 60-minute Peel and Glow ($120) and the 30-minute Be Glowing mini-facial ($55.)

Hula Hoop Your Way to Fitness at The Berkeley

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Wilton Place, Knightsbridge, London, United Kingdom, SW1X 7RL
June 2, 2015 at 12:05 PM | by | ()

If we’re talking hotel classes, May was all about mindfulness sessions. But mindfulness is already so over; June is for hula hooping. Specifically, hula hooping over the rooftops of London – or, more specifically, at The Berkeley.

The classes are being run in conjunction with HulaFit and promise to burn 600 calories in an hour-long session – all the better to reward yourself afterwards. And the reward comes swiftly – you’ll get access to the pool, and lunch beside it, as well as calorie-free views of Hyde Park and Knightsbridge.

Bit by bit – or painfully piecemeal, depending on your perspective – the details on what to expect at Hotel Ritz Paris when it reopens towards the end of the year are coming out. We’ve looked at the hotel in various stages of its réhabilitation (last time was late February), which began nearly three years ago.

Only In Hawaii Will Your Massage Mimic the Rhythm of the Ocean

June 1, 2015 at 10:30 AM | by | ()

The Westin Resort Ocean Villas in Kaanapali Beach in Maui is a full-service resort comprised of villas equipped with the comforts of home like a kitchen and washer and dryer, which makes vacationing here easy breezy. For a small fee, the kitchen can be stocked with groceries before guests even arrive, and the onsite community barbecues make grilling up a meal a less expensive option than eating out every night.

And here's our suggestion on how to use those savings.

Your Body Will Say Mahalo After a Visit to the Anara Spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 1571 Poipu Road [map], Koloa, Hawaii, United States, 96756
May 27, 2015 at 2:10 PM | by | ()

There’s a reason the Anara Spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa routinely makes top spa lists – it’s simply fabulous.

At 45,000-sq.ft., it’s the largest on Kauai and each treatment suite opens up into its own tropical garden. So while you are being massaged, polished and scrubbed, the birds are chirping, the breeze is blowing and you actually know you are in Hawaii, unlike some staid, common spa treatment rooms where you can’t tell if you're in Hawaii or North Dakota.

The Only Thing Better Than a Safari Might Just Be a Spa Safari

May 19, 2015 at 9:00 AM | by | ()

The view from your bale

Safaris and spas – two hotel-related things that we either love (the latter) or know we would love (the former). So we’re all over the Spa Safari that Nihiwatu on Sumba - an island in the Indian Ocean 250 miles south-east of Bali, and an hour’s flight from Denpasar – will launch next month.

It’ll take an entire day, the spa safari, crossing the island to Nihi Oka, a clifftop bale (traditional open air pavilion) overlooking the ocean below. You can get there either by foot (90 minutes) or – the luxury option – by car. Because why would you work up a sweat when you’re about to get slathered in fine oils?

Why You'll Want to Click The LINQ for a Spa Treatment in Vegas

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], Las Vegas, NV, United States, 89109
May 11, 2015 at 6:07 PM | by | ()

Downloading has never been easier.

When we unveiled the new rooms at The Linq Hotel & Casino last October, we were impressed with the property's tech-centric amenities (aimed at millennials, of course)-- items that many other hotels in Las Vegas don't usually pay attention to, such as WiFi hotspots in each room and TVs that allow guests to order room service or request items from housekeeping. The LINQ has an app for the guest room experience too.

Downstairs at the 3535 Bar, the tech amenities continue with a color-changing LED vortex that rises out of the bar and phone chargers at every seat. There's even a mobile check-in service available (and which you should definitely take advantage of during peak check-in time.)

But of all places to ditch the tech, you would expect The LINQ to do so in the spa, right? Nope, not here.

Ladies Who Lunch Become Ladies Who Meditate at the Connaught

London’s Connaught hotel has been busy recently. It opened a smashing new Champagne Room. Its chef, Hélène Darroze, was just named the Veuve Cliquot World’s Best Female Chef. No wonder it needs to calm down.

Hot on the heels of Trump SoHo launching meditation lessons, the Aman Spa at the Connaught is doing the same. However, it’s going one better than Trump – its daily classes are free.
