Miami is a pampered city, figuratively and literally. There are endless perks that come with living in a town that touts so many incredible hotels and resorts, and one of those is access to world-class spas. Here, you can wrap yourself in 24-karat gold, clear your chakras through bodywork and a good saging, lather yourself in gooey guava or sweat it out in a luxurious Turkish hammam. If there’s an up-and-coming treatment, rest assured you can find it here—otherwise, your next Swedish massage is probably just a block or two away. From South Beach to the Gables, these are the best spas in Miami to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and recharged.
