Mark your cal­en­dar for some “me” time! Mi­ami Spa Month is back to soothe, re­store, and recharge your mind, body, and spirit.

There’s no bet­ter time (or ex­cuse) to dis­con­nect than Mi­ami Spa Month (July 1-Au­gust 30). From a sea­side detox un­der the stars to Nobu-ap­proved mas­sages to get you from zero to Zen, this is how we spa in the 305.

ACQUALINA SPA BY ESPA

These are just a few of the bounty of ameni­ties that this state-of-the-art spa de­lights with. Pro tip: book a pri­vate suite for you and your honey to es­cape to nir­vana… to­gether. 17875 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305-9188000; ac­qualinare­sort.com

CAR­IL­LON

From chill­ing in an igloo (true story) to an herbal la­co­nium (a dry sweat

room) and even an on-site func­tional med­i­cal doc­tor, as well as acupunc­tur­ists, holis­tic health ex­perts, and feng shui in­form­ing ev­ery space, there’s noth­ing one of Car­il­lon’s treat­ments won’t cure.
