Aveda Spa at The Palms Hotel


With its private beachfront, flowering foliage, and seaside swimming pool, the AAA Four Diamond-awarded Palms Hotel & Spa is a relaxed, tropical retreat just minutes from South Beach’s pulsing action.
At the center of this sophisticated Miami Beach–based oceanfront property is its commitment to wellness and inspiration from nature. Award-winning natural gourmet cuisine is served at the hotel’s signature Essensia Restaurant, and the on-site Aveda Destination Spa, a full-service spa, salon, and retail center, combines all-natural services with chic touches like outdoor spa cabanas and in-room iPod docking stations, allowing guests to control their own tunes during treatments. Guests of the spa, a 2010 Spafinder Wellness 365™ Readers’ Choice Awards recipient, have access to The Palm’s tropical gardens, heated pool, and sandy beach.
