Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Resort Miami, Florida

Lapis Spa is a tropical wonderland of spa goodness located in the Fontainebleau resort in Miami, Florida.  This adults only (18 years and over) luxury spa is exactly what I needed recently.  Lapis spa has been on my spa wish list for awhile, so when I unexpectedly ended up in Miami, it was too good to pass up.  Much to my delight, I was able to reserve a same day Saturday appointment.Lapis Spa Fontainebleau resortI really needed spa time so I gave myself a quick tour, taking a few photos and videos, then I got down to the business of relaxing.

Experience the Condado Vanderbilt Spa in Puerto Rico

I love the complete escape that I experience enclosed in happy spa time.  My mind and body relaxes as I prepare for a wellness treatment to sooth my aches, address specific skin concerns (the main concern is that I am getting old), and enjoy a treatment for both mind and body.  A good friend suggested, “hey let’s try the Condado Vanderbilt Spa” which kicked  off a relaxing day in Condado for food, shipping, afternoon cocktails, and finish our day at the spa.

Condado is a neighborhood of San Juan, Puerto Rico  known for shopping and fantastic food.  After a little retail therapy in the shops across the street, we returned to the hotel to watch the ocean from the Vanderbilt lounge while sipping delightful rum drinks.  Continue reading Experience the Condado Vanderbilt Spa in Puerto Rico

Spa Time at the El Conquistador Resort, Puerto Rico

Girls’ weekend seems incomplete without a little spa time.  Our adventures included exploring Old San Juan, dining, shopping, scuba/snorkel trip, and plenty of beach time. We headed off to the Waldorf Astoria Spa, located in the lovely El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.

My first visit to the El Conquistador resort was last year, but this was my first spa visit.  Each previous resort visit included a scuba dive, how had I not thought to follow up with a massage?  Hmm. Continue reading Spa Time at the El Conquistador Resort, Puerto Rico
