Martha Stewart didn’t call Lapis Spa “The Most Beautiful Spa in America” for nothing.

Set on the third floor of the avant-garde Faena Hotel Miami Beach, this ethereal, 22,000-square-foot sanctuary boasts one of the East Coast’s largest hammams along with shaman-developed body-healing rituals and treatments. Treat your body (and soul) to a chakra-balancing day pass, which includes intimate yoga and meditation, custom juices and treatments that target your crown (at the spa’s in-house, world-renowned Rossano Ferreti salon), frown (with high-tech facial treatments featuring the super-luxe Naturopathic and Biologique Recherche skincare lines) or heart (with your SO or even your BFF). So, dust off your favorite caftan (or simply buy one at the spa’s fashionable boutique) and become one with the “well” life.

This small-but-mighty facility offers a unique blend of fitness and spa, and its location makes it the perfect place for the city dweller who’s looking to squeeze a workout or a wellness treatment in between meetings or after work. Get your butt kicked in a barre class or ease your mind with some yoga and then let one of their talented therapists rid you of all the soreness with a classic Fusion massage. Unwind further with a dip in the EPIC Hotel pool, which is open to spa guests. The bird’s-eye view of downtown Miami from several of the treatment rooms and fitness studios is a vivid reminder of the distance between you and the stressors of everyday life.

The Standard Spa is currently undergoing a little refresh, but thankfully they haven’t left Miami’s play and pamper crowd high and dry. The signature Hamam is currently closed (they’re keeping mum on a reopening date) but a vast amount of their signature massages, facials and even specialty treatments (astrology readings, anyone?) are available to book within their private spa suites and mud lounge. A day pass for the Standard Spa pool will set you back almost as much as a massage, which includes access to everything in the hotel, so opting for a treatment is really just good business.
