Pamper Yourself with Spa Treatments

Nothing sounds more relaxing than sitting under a cabana on the beach, reading a book, listening to music, or enjoying the sound of the waves. In a small resort town like Sunny Isles Beach, however, the white Atlantic sands are only your first stop to having a truly rejuvenating vacation. Your tranquility begins when you book the perfect spa hotel on Hipmunk, and doesn’t stop until you return to the hustle and bustle of the airport.

Saunas, Pools, and Ice

You can find top of the line spa treatments in Sunny Isles Beach both from hotel spas and independently owned day spas. If you want your spa treatment attached to your hotel stay, book a room at the Acqualina Resort and Spa. Not only is the hotel itself luxurious, their spa is truly something to behold. At 20,000 square feet, the spa has been featured in many “top spa” lists, and is filled with the very best in body, skin, and muscle treatments. A Finnish sauna, a heated jet pool with a waterfall, and ice fountains make this an irresistible location for someone looking to relax.

Unique Treatments at Local Day Spa

For those who want a pick-me-up on their beach bodies, visit Solea Medical Spa and Beauty Lounge. Their treatments Lipomassage and VelaShape smooth and firm problem areas, sending guests away with an extra boost of confidence. Indulge in a slimming body wrap, a traditional body massage, or a deep cleaning facial to max out your experience.

Fishing Serenity

After a few days in sunny Florida, you may decide to explore other parts of the beautiful Florida wildlife, and return to the beach the next day. After all, being outdoors and experiencing nature can have a truly rejuvenating experience on the mind and spirit. Visit The Newport Fishing Pier to spend a few hours relaxing with your fishing line in the water. If fishing isn’t your thing, the pier is great for a leisurely walk and panoramic ocean views. Stay at the affordable Days Hotel Thunderbird to be just steps away from the Newport Fishing Pier.

Calm Beauty in Nature

It may be hard to leave the ocean, but Oleta River State Park is worth a visit, as well. Take a kayaking trip through the mangroves and view some of Florida’s most unique natural habitats. The estuary waters are quite calm, so it’s a great activity for anyone who wants to go at their own pace. Picnic tables are available along some of the hiking trails, so pack a tasty snack and enjoy one of your meals in nature. Spot some passing butterflies or a blue heron, one of Florida’s most majestic native birds. The hotel Sole on the Ocean is five minutes away from Oleta River State Park, a perfect location for experiencing all of Florida’s nature during your visit.
