Miami Spa Month is an annual event where top-notch resort and hotel spas offer spa treatments from $109 to $159 during the months of July and August. In 2016, participating hotels included The Betsy-South Beach, Mondrian South Beach, Delano South Beach, The Setai and Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel.
It's a great opportunity to check out lavish hotel spas where treatments are usually much more expensive. The nice thing is that you get access to their beautiful spa facilities, pool and even beaches, so you can make a day of it. Miami Spa Month is sponsored by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau as a way to lure tourists during the summer off-season, but it's a great deal for locals, too.
There is no limit to the number of treatments you can get, and you actually have a few months because some spas offer them from July through September. It's a good idea to try treatments that complement each other like facial, a body treatment, and a massage (though it's hard to get too much massage). When tipping, consider the original price of the service and tip accordingly. Tax is also usually added.

The Betsy’s Wellness Garden and Spa featured several treatments inspired by poetry, to fit in with the hotel's commitment to philanthropy, arts, culture, and education. A massage called "The Road Not Taken" is described as an "unconventional journey that connects the inner and outer worlds, the physical and the spiritual."
The massage initiates from the feet up, focusing on the connective tissues and muscular paths between various parts of the body. The line of poetry that inspired the treatment is from Robert Frost: “I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference.” The only fully outdoor spa on Miami Beach, The Betsy's spa featuring unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean.
