After walking through the expansive Lapis boutique, you’ll approach the reception desk and waiting area at Lapis The Spa at Fontainebleau. Waiting area is a bit of a misnomer, though, since there isn’t any seating in this marble nook, and you won’t spend more than a few minutes here confirming your appointment or processing your bill. Rather, after checking in, you’ll be whisked off to the locker rooms and given a tour of the spa, which includes many active wet areas as well as several spots for quiet relaxation. If you’re visiting the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa as a couple, you might want to wait for your treatments on the lounge chairs next to the essence mineral pool, since that part of the spa is coed. But if you’re spa-ing solo and are awaiting your pure oxygen infusion facial, we recommend the relaxation lounge whose glass door is emblazoned with the phrase “silence is golden.” Here you can lie under a fuzzy white blanket while reading the latest issue of Town & Country accompanied only by tranquil music. An attendant will come for you 10 minutes before your session begins to escort you upstairs to the treatment rooms. The upstairs, white-on-white waiting room is cheery and bright, with glimpses of the ocean from behind the sofa and a shelf of art books to peruse. You likely won’t stay here too long, but should you find yourself thirsty, a small kitchenette offers refreshments. With so many comfy waiting areas available at Lapis Spa in Fontainebleau Miami Beach, you might just find yourself happy to have some down time.
