There are few experiences more indulgent than a relaxing and rejuvenating visit to a spa. From facials to seaweed wraps and aromatherapy treatments, nothing says unwind like a hotel spa.

In South Florida, an abundance of resorts offer the promise of relaxation at their in-house spas which feature calming atmospheres, expert massages and lavish surroundings.

These are some of the top-rated hotel spas to visit in South Florida.

The Ritz-Carlton, Naples

Ritz-Carlton is one of the most important world-renowned brands associated with luxury and their resort in Naples is no exception. For the ultimate in personalization, schedule a “Time is the Essence” treatment with a therapist who will tailor a spa experience catering to your specific needs. You can also opt for special enhancements like the Moroccan Oil scalp treatment, dry skin brushing or LIFESTAGE anti-ageing boosters.
