Last weekend was spent at Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach and it was divine! They have beautiful facilities. The Spa was my favorite part, I would definitely revisit for the Spa alone. The massage was great but what they offer in the Spa is better. They have all types of things I’ve never seen before. Most spas will have the saunas, steam room, and hot tubs. This place had, herbal steam rooms with added humidity and the room was beautiful with amazing tile work. They also had an igloo. Where you stand and the aromas are cold and sprinkle from the top (this was my favorite). In addition to these you could also step into a shower that had “thunderstorm” and other unique settings that really felt amazing. I would highly recommend it.
As far as the beach service, the guys who set up your chairs, towels and umbrellas, they were spot on and great! I did however order a drink from the beach server and waited an hour and it never came. So the service there wasn’t so great.
Room service was fast and the food was great! The women who delivered it was so sweet and made it extra special for me. She went out of her way to make me a mimosa! 🙂
I also took a few of the yoga classes they provided (which there were AWESOME options for activities including Ayurveda) and the class was great. I am a yoga instructor so I didn’t agree with 100% of the alignment details she taught but her sequencing was great and she was energetic but also calming.
The only thing I really would change is their car/taxi situation. They have to call cabs and it can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. I’ve stayed at some of the nicest resorts in the country and most places have a “house car” or a few that will take you anywhere with in a 5 mile radius or whatever and can also pick you up. It’s first come first serve and it goes A LONG way with the guests. What a small cost for such convenience for your guests.
Their beach was quiet and calming, not a party like you would find further down south beach. It was just what we were looking for. <3
