At Ame Spa and Wellness Collective at Turnberry Isle Miami, it’s all about getting your relax on. The spa recently underwent a $2.5 million renovation (the hotel is currently under a $175 million redevelopment). The spa features a full menu of state of the art treatments.
“Total we have 15 treatments — 6 facials 4 massages and the rest are all alternative treatments,” said Vanessa Viadero, Director of Marketing.
Alternative treatments like the sensory deprivation tank.
“It’s a salt chamber tank. You float for an hour. It stops all your senses, there’s sound therapy and there is no pressure on joints for an hour. It’s amazing,” Vanessa said.
One particular massage is called the Fijian Ritual.
“This is in our ritual room it’s the $199 price point. You get 100 minutes of treatment. 20 minutes of milk soak, then 30 minute scrub and then 60 minutes massage and head massage and foot scrub, so you’re in here a for a while and its totally worth it,” Vanessa said.
