Lapis The Spa at Fontainebleau

A sleek oceanside refuge in Miami Beach
Lapis The Spa at Fontainebleau is a sleek oceanside refuge located inside Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Guests are far removed from the action at the iconic hotel — the 40,000-square-foot spa features calming rooms outfitted in cool tones and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The complimentary wet areas set this spa apart. Water therapies are incorporated into the innovative treatment menu, which includes gems like the Cleopatra’s Massage (topped off with a milk bath) and the signature Bleau Ocean Voyage, a luxuriant four-step ritual that treats guests to a soak, scrub, massage and wrap.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Without a doubt, the unique and myriad wet areas at Lapis The Spa at Fontainebleau are our favorite aspect of the Miami Beach retreat.

• While there are several couples treatments offered at Lapis, romantic pairs can enjoy any of the Bleau Ocean Luxuries together in a spa suite.

• A lovely selection of healthy snacks and soothing beverages is conveniently placed at the intersection of the quiet relaxation room, the locker room and the immersion mineral water jet bath.
Things to Know
• The best way to get an appointment at Lapis The Spa at Fontainebleau is through its website or by calling the reception desk.

• You can download a spa brochure with detailed descriptions of each service, and even email spa specialists questions about services.

• If you need to cancel your appointment, give the warm staff at least six hours of notice. If you have an appointment before noon, notify the spa the night before for any cancellations.
The Treatments
• The decadent spa features much more than run-of-the-mill massage treatments. If you’re feeling adventurous at the Miami spa, opt for the Bamboo Fusion, a vigorous massage that is performed with natural bamboo stalks for even and deep pressure

• For those looking to really indulge, the Cleopatra’s Massage will fit the bill — it includes a milk hydrobath (legend says the Egyptian pharaoh bathed in milk) and a relaxing massage

• We recommend trying the exotic Russian massage, which combines deep-tissue work with cross-fiber strokes.

• For a classic treatment, the experienced therapists dole out heavenly Swedish massages.

• Other options include a pre-natal massage (Mommy’s Bliss), a customized massage (the Masters) and a massage that uses a self-heating mud pack (Hot Pack For The Back).
The Facilities
• The spa offers five main water elements featuring the sensations of mist, rain and steam to complement and enhance the spa’s treatments.

• For swimming and soaking, you’ll find a warm (92 degrees F), 75-foot lap pool that’s been enriched with minerals and nutrients to energize your body and soften your skin. It’s not very deep, but the jets help massage your limbs and the temperature is ideal for relaxing without overheating.

• If you’d like something hotter, however, go for the immersion mineral water jet baths in the male- and female-only sections of the spa. Clothing is optional here, and you can soak in the 104 degree F heated tub with jets.

• Near the hot tub you’ll find the eucalyptus infusion steam room, a turquoise glass-tiled room where you can inhale the fresh, herbal scent as the toxins leave your body. For added bliss, grab two slices of cucumbers from the bowl near the hot tub and rest them on your eyes as you sit back, letting the steam envelop you.

• The most unique wet areas, however, are those which incorporate shower and rain-like elements. In the element rain tunnel, you’ll encounter multiple jets massaging your body with streams of warm and cool water, while in the Bleau rain room, a blue haze envelops your body as warm showers embrace and massage you.
