Spa Month Preview: Lapis at Fontainebleau

There are a few dates that I look forward to every year: Miami Spice in the fall and Spa Month during July and August. I've been counting down the days until June is over because it's the perfect time to get some of the hottest treatments at great prices. We put in so many hours at work, looking after our children and families, and taking care of the house that many times there is no time left for ourselves. Well it's time to change things ladies and gents!

Yesterday I visited the Lapis Spa located at the legendary Fontainebleau Hotel (4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida) to preview one of the treatments that will be available during spa month: the Classic European Facial. This was my first time EVER getting facial so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I have relatively great skin, I make sure to use SPF if I'm going outside, I wash and care for my skin with a wide array of products, and I do my best not to fall asleep with make-up on. But even if you think you might not need a facial, there are a lot of impurities hiding under the skin that you might not be aware of.

My aesthetician was Amanda, who I highly recommend. She was the perfect combination of professional and friendly during our session and she had answers to every question I would throw at her. During the 50 minute facial, Amanda cleansed, revitalized, and toned from my face to my decolletage. Amanda explained how beneficial a facial is for both women and men no matter if your skin is dry, normal, or combination. The process helps to hydrate and normalize skin with high quality products and revolutionary tools.

Most of the products use essential oils that not only help your skin, but it also activates the senses and helps transport you to a special place of relaxation. Normally $135, during July and August you can get the European Facial for just $99 (not including tax and service charge). That special man in your life need not be forgotten. Lapis Spa has the Refuel Facial for Men available for $99. That includes a pure collagen cleanse, a blue algae gel mask, AND a pressure point foot massage & scalp massage.

Many of their most popular 50 minute massages are also available for $99 including: Swedish Rub Down, Hot Stones Rock, Bamboo Fusion, & Mommy's Bliss Massage which caters to expectant mothers in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. If you and your partner want to enjoy a 50 minute Couple's Massage together, they have a special room to accommodate you  for either a Swedish Rub Down or a Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage for $258 per couple. 

When you reserve your treatment, you will also have access to Lapis Spa's invigorating water therapies including: the elements rain tunnel, the eucalyptus infusion steam room, the energy deluge shower, the bleau rain room, and the mineral co-ed room. (Photos below)

If you spend the day, stop by my favorite lunch spot La Cote (I always order the Lobster Roll & Red Sangria!) or Scarpetta (the polenta and pici are to-die-for) for dinner.

Don't wait to book your reservations. With these prices, appointments will book up fast!! Call 1-(866)-750-4772.
