Greater Fort Lauderdale makes for the perfect place to slip away for some R&R, and there’s no better way to reset and feel rejuvenated than a spa day—or, better yet, a spa weekend. Take your pick of pampering at the variety of destination day spas, resort spas, or wellness centers that embrace holistic and alternative remedies to help relieve stress and have you feeling recharged and renewed.
You’ll find day spas around Fort Lauderdale and in the neighborhoods spanning in either direction along the coast, from cryo spas and ayurvedic wellbeing centers in Hollywood to med spas in Dania Beach and IV vitamin lounges in neighborhoods out west, like Pembroke Pines. And from August through September, you can take advantage of Spa Days with $99 LauderDeals at some of the top spots around town.
If you’re looking for a day of luxury, where you can linger for hours and be just steps from the sea, the region’s many resort spas serve as the perfect retreat. Self-care is a priority at the elegant Evara Beach Spa inside Auberge Beach, where the wellness center and med spa incorporate natural elements like sea, salt, and sand in its vitality rituals.
At the ocean-inspired The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Fort Lauderdale, Florida-centric ingredients like citrus play a key role in rebalancing and harmonizing massages, while at the rooftop PURE Spa at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, you can soak up sweeping views of the Atlantic after indulging in Scandinavian-style treatments in a space that’s the definition of hygge.
Beachfront spas dot Greater Fort Lauderdale’s 24 miles of golden shores, and many are destinations in themselves. Take Margaritaville Beach Resort on Hollywood Beach, between the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway, where the full-service St. Somewhere Spa features a scrub room and fitness classes, or The Diplomat Beach Resort, where you can lounge in a cabana by the beachfront pools post-treatment. Nearby in Hollywood, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Rock Spa is a full-service retreat that spans 42,000 square feet and includes dipping pools and dry and wet lounges.
Whether you’re staying in Fort Lauderdale or in one of the neighborhoods further west, like Weston and Pembroke Pines, Greater Fort Lauderdale offers plenty of comfortable accommodations where you can relax in the most serene of settings, basking near the sea in South Florida’s sunshine.
