The annual pamperfest known as Miami Spa Month — which actually lasts two months — kicked off Wednesday, offering discounted treatments at 35 Miami-Dade spas.
Prices start at $99 for indulgences including a 70-minute signature chardonnay massage at the Biltmore in Coral Gables; a 50-minute facial at the Miami Beach Edition or a “Pampering with Pooch” massage (50 minutes for human, 10 for canine) at The Betsy — South Beach. Other services are available for $129; prices do not include tax or tip, though some include a glass of wine or bubbly.
Spa month pricing represents a discount of as much as 50 percent.
Participating spas include two that received five stars this year from Forbes Travel Guide: Acqualina Spa by ESPA at The Acqualina Resort and The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami. The promotion runs through Aug. 31.
Miami Spa Month is part of the “Temptations” program launched by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau that also includes foodie favorite Miami Spice, which runs between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30.
