Trendy South Beach spa turns pampering into a fun art form.. In Short You don't expect an in-house DJ at a spa, but that's what you'll find at this Miami Beach establishment during its "Girls Night Out" promotion on Fridays--complete with a complimentary cocktail. It's noticeably quieter yet still lively the rest of the week, as patrons come in for facials and massage options that include aromatherapy, stone and traditional Swedish. Body treatments include aloe wraps and exfoliating body scrubs. Whether you come to relax or come to live it up, the spa has got you covered.
Avoid, try something else.
Well, where to begin. My boyfriend and I initially made appointments at the spa at the Standard Hotel, but they were having problems with their water (the city was doing maintenance and turned it off) and coudn't do the mani/pedis we wanted. So... even though I had read bad reviews about Le Spa Lancome, it was close to our hotel and we tried it (it was strangely difficult to find a spa for our trip to Miami). Anyway, it was unpleasant from the start. We were practically ignored, the pedicures were not good. Mine smudged twice because the polish was put on too thick. They fixed it once, (before I left the spa), but I didn't want to go back again when it smudged a 1/2 hour later at lunch. I can only speak to the pedicure room, but it did not feel like a "spa". It was like a factory. Uninterested women painting toes. I thought it was really expensive for what we got. Our experience and the few treatments that we got at the Standard were so much better. Take a cab and go there.
This South Beach spa combines ultimate luxury with the experience of the folks at Lancome.. In Short Floor-to-ceiling windows and a white, minimalist decor create a breezy, light-filled space at this cozy corner shop. Lancome's entire product line is right at your fingertips, including skin-care products, makeup and fragrances. Its prime location right in the heart of South Beach means everyone, German tourists, today's "It" girl, flip-flopped locals, stop by on their way to the beach.
As I walked down the worn stairs of Lancome's Spa, I realized that I just woke up from a nightmare. How can people be so rude and incompetent when a beauty treatment should be a DREAM not a NIGHTMARE? I had to wash the grease from my face the moment I got home.
This was the worst spa experience ever. From the rude receptionist to the unskilled facialist. I was abandonded several times during the facial and wasn't sure if she was finished or not. No one addressed me by name. It was so impersonal and cold.
