THE SPA AT FOUR SEASONS HOTEL AT THE SURF CLUB
This luxury hotel is located in the Surfside neighbourhood of Miami (fourseasons.com). It’s a mere 20-minute drive north of the buzzing South Beach precinct but the serenity is other-worldly. The sound of crashing waves echoing along its stately hallways certainly helps but it’s at the spa that this hotel really delivers on Zen. A seamless symphony of white shuttered windows and relaxing lounges, crisp robes and plush linen, the tranquil space offers regular yoga and meditation workshops, a dedicated steam room and sauna, plus a bevy of treatments – from a 90-minute anti-ageing facial to two-hour-long stressrelieving hot-stone massages. There are a number of highly specialised therapies, too – a hand-regenerating ritual that takes away the signs of time from your mitts, say, or the slimming and sculpting treatment that features a rigorous massage.
