Bamford Haybarn Spa Miami
2341 Collins Ave., Mid-Beach
Tucked inside the 1 Hotel Miami, the Bamford Haybarn Spa is an earthy oasis marked by hand-carved doors and branch shelving. Here, in the nine treatment rooms, Lady Carole Bamford—of Daylesford fame in the UK—applies her global wellness approach to the menu of treatments. Whether it’s a facial, massage, or body treatment, all are guided by Ayurvedic principles, using the brand’s in-house line of organic, natural skin care. Bonus: The herb-scented Bamford candles make wonderful gifts.
1935 W. Ave., Ste. 208, Mid-Beach
JetSet is only studio in Miami that has Lagree Fitness Megaformers, which are pilates-like machines that have gained a cult-like following in recent years. Unlike a lot of pilates classes, you get a fair amount of cardio with your weight training and resistance-based body conditioning. It’s a relentless 50-minute workout that’s not for the faint at heart—which is probably why it’s so addicting. They have another location in Miami Beach, plus outposts in Wynwood, Coral Gables, and North Miami.
Tierra Santa Healing House
3201 Collins Ave., Mid-Beach
The Faena Hotel's Tierra Santa is a burst of color: A rainbow-striped rug runs through the spa’s lobby, which is outfitted with bright Juan Gatti artwork and floral-printed poufs. Inspired by an array of South American (and some South Asian) healing traditions, Tierra Santa has a gorgeous Turkish-style hammam and offers a full wet spa experience (waterfall shower, herbal steam room, wet scrub, sauna, and ice parlor); many of the treatments include ritualistic wellness aspects. The Hammam Rose Ritual is one highlight: During the treatment, as you lie on top of a warm marble slab, a therapist will scrub your entire body for what is likely to be the most thorough exfoliation of your life. Following this, you’ll be covered in ridiculously soft foam and then a soothing clay and later treated to a massage. The Tree of Life Vibrations treatment takes place on a heated sand bed and incorporates handmade Himalayan singing bowls into another supremely relaxing massage. Other massage options are more conventional, as are the facials—the Triple Lift Advanced Facial concludes with the Remodeling Face Machine from French brand Biologique Recherche and seems to make miracles…
