Miami has been experiencing sweltering heat, oppressive humidity and Armageddon-inspired clouds that bring trembling thunder and afternoon downpours. This can only mean one thing—summer has officially arrived!
For some Miami residents, this time of year is almost too unbearably hot to be outside. This inevitably leads to a terrible case of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) as we troll Instagram viewing our friends over-consuming lobster rolls and rosé on the northeast coast, where summer temperatures are more forgiving.
For those suffering from a case of summertime sadness, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau is providing the ultimate remedy by bringing back Miami Spa Month. Now in its 8th season, this event is the perfect way to beat the heat while indulging in the highest standards of pampering and relaxation. Luckily for us, this promotional event will be running for two months starting July 1. During this time, locals and visitors will be able to take advantage of discounted prices on signature services at luxurious spas throughout the city for as low as $75.
With over 30 participants, we’ve decided to narrow down the list to the top spas that are not to be missed.
Exhale at the EPIC Residences + Spa
Exhale is more than just a brand-it’s an experience. A favorite among locals, Exhale combines boutique barre and yoga classes with transformational spa therapies under one roof. Exhale is offering one of our favorite promotions, featuring MINDBODY classes and trial memberships along with their signature spa services for only $99.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental
