Serene seclusion in Miami Beach
9 Treatment Rooms
If it’s a secluded moment near South Beach you’re after, then head to The Spa at the Miami Beach Edition. While it may be set inside one of Miami’s most-talked-about new haute spots, the spa is as close to Eden as you'll find along the always-abuzz Collins Avenue.
Located in the bottom level of The Miami Beach Edition (but on the opposite side of the hotel’s Basement nightclub), the beautifully designed 1,800-square-foot spa is simple yet modern (Tracy Lee, whose TLee Spas created striking spots like Spa Botánico, helped with the design). A glistening marble white staircase leads you to clear-glass French doors with the word “Spa” spelled out in metallic letters just to the left of them. Inside, you can’t help but succumb to serenity. Specially curated music and Edition’s signature scent fill the air. Once past the foyer and boutique retail shop area up front, you'll make your way down a long, dimly lit corridor that leads to the rest of the spa’s areas, none more head-turn-inducing than the central Relaxation Lounge. With custom-designed daybeds surrounded by drapery and vintage Moroccan rugs, the candle-lit space is a destination onto its own; without question, you will want to make time to bliss out here pre- or post-treatment.
The Miami Beach spa features nine treatment rooms, including a custom hamman room; a Beauty Lounge for nail, hair and makeup services; a detox room with a steam shower and infrared sauna; and a fully stocked boutique. Next door is the resort’s 24-hour, aptly named “Gym,” which offers state-of-the-art cardio, weight and strength equipment and an array of outdoor classes from professional trainers at V Art of Wellness (the company is headed up by celebrity trainers Tracie and Christopher Vlaun), including body chiseling, yoga and beach boot camp (a favorite of ours).
The intentionally streamlined menu is simple and to the point, making it easy to customize your massage, body treatment or facial. The signature Build-A-Massage option lets you choose you’re your preferred “Touch” (options range from gentle to therapeutic), “Style” (flowing or energetic), and “Oil/Location” (unscented or even nut-free). If you’re unsure, ask for the standard Edition House Massage that comes with a firm hand, gentle oils and just the right amount of tension relief.
After a long night out on Collins, the Reboot body treatment is the perfect way to recover with a steam, a body mask, a sauna sitting, and hair and scalp massages. Should you feel the need to hydrate, brighten and clarify your face with a Oxygen Infusion facial that’s designed to cool and calm, plump and firm, your skin will look smooth and glowy for the next night of fun. On top of all of that, each room is outfitted with an iPad so you can further mood-set with a customized playlist, too.
The Relaxation Lounge also offers its own menu of quick fixes that you can add onto services, including the always-popular “Power Nap” (a Biotic Wave machine makes the body feel like it’s taken a four-hour nap in just 20 minutes), oxygen and aromatherapy services, and soothing hand and feet treatments.
