Beachfront bliss in Bal Harbour
10 Treatment Rooms
Bathed in a neutral beige-and-white palette, the 10,000-square-foot The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami is its own calming getaway within The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami. Forget about those spas that try to soothe you with sounds of the ocean — this spa is the real deal, thanks to its views of the water from the treatment suites and its outdoor oceanfront terrace.
Ease your tired feet in the serene, white-curtain-clad foot therapy lounge, and follow it up with a manicure and pedicure to get you ready for Miami Beach nightlife. If your body needs a little love the next morning, detox with a facial, like the Rice Flower Polishing Facial (rice sops up excess oil, papain banishes dull skin and a face massage relaxes you) or a massage — our favorite is the hot stone. On top of rubbing away your stress with heated basalt stones, your therapist will massage your face with hot and cold stones. If you like the idea of a facial massage as part of your treatment, another option is the Pure Relaxation, which includes a Swedish-style rubdown as well. You'll also be able to choose from massages like the therapeutic deep tissue, anti-aging, prenatal and couples options.
Check out the list of body treatments, which are specifically designed to rejuvenate and moisturize your skin. The most indulgent is the 100-minute One, with a full-body exfoliation, relaxing bath, hydrating cocoon and customized rubdown, along with a Lifting Eye Complex treatment. You’ll get your gleam back with the Sea Salt and Aloe, a 25-minute service that starts with a water mist and is followed by a sea salt buff and moisturizer. The 50-minute Vitamin Infusion Treatment focuses on removing your dead skin cells with exfoliation and plumping skin with an application of a super rich vitamin-enhanced moisturizer. These will get your prepped for the beach in no time.
Men are not forgotten at The Spa. In addition to various massages that are equally effective on men as they are on women, there's a gentleman’s rejuvenation facial created specifically for the guy in need of a little extra nourishment. The facial is 25 minutes and caters to athletes and businessmen. It uses a combination of products and massage techniques to soothe tired skin and get it looking refreshed again. Men can also request manicure and pedicure services and work with the spa concierge to custom-create a service that fits his individual needs.
