Dubbed “the most beautiful spa in America” by Martha Stewart, Lapis the Spa at Fontainebleau is a lavish retreat designed with guests’ well-being in mind.

This 40,000-square-foot, two-level spa showcases the restorative qualities of water to craft luxuriating experiences. This popular Miami Beach spa boasts an impressive 30 private treatment rooms, invigorating water features and a co-ed pool to offer guests stress reducing and anti-aging solutions.

Lapis Ritual Water Journeys

Included in all spa services is a Lapis Ritual Water Journey. From a dip into the immersion mineral water jet bath to a plunge in the energy deluge shower to a detox in eucalyptus infusion steam to an invigorating stint in the Bleau rain room, guests are urged to take advantage of these service enhancements before and after treatments.

The spa treatment menu is extensive and is categorized as Bleau Ocean Luxuries, Body Renewal, Massage, Facials, Ayurveda, Bride Packages and Hair & Nail.

Bleau Ocean Luxuries services are done in the privacy of spa suites with breathtaking views of the ocean. In the luxe suites, guests can share a massage or a facial, soak in a jetted, scented tub or enjoy other luxurious treatments ensuring complete physical and mental relaxation.

Body Renewal treatments are ideal for patrons looking to ease everyday tension and boost the body’s restorative powers. Water is used in conjunction with various body treatments to help circulation, cell regeneration and tone sore muscles.

Massages are offered as typical basic services and as elevated experiences like the Four Hands massage where two knowledgeable therapists work in unison to provide a Swedish massage resulting in a pure relaxed state.

Facials can be booked as standard pore-refining treatments and age-defining techniques like microdermabrasion and gentle stimulation with the use of microcurrents. Every facial includes a hydrating hand treatment.

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning life and knowledge. It’s one of the oldest natural sciences in the world. Lapis’ collection of Ayurvedic services improve overall well-being and help rid the body of harmful toxins.

Bride Packages aim to bring complete relaxation for the bride and the members of her bridal party before the anticipated wedding takes place. From massages to body scrubs to hand and foot treatments, these services are meant to have a calming effect.

Hair and Nail services range from basic haircuts and manicures to hair extensions, gel polish and jewel-studded toe nails.
