1. Acqualina Resort & Spa

PSA: Miami is home to the best waterfront hotel in the country. This is no joke. Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles was voted No. 1 by USA Today readers—for the fifth consecutive year!—and we couldn’t be prouder. That’s not all: The hotel includes a 20,000-square-foot spa with ocean views, state-of-the-art treatment rooms and a healing heat and water ritual area. Did we mention the four pools and the red umbrella–lined private beach spanning over four acres of coastline? It’s no wonder this place is racking up the accolades. We’re suddenly inspired to book a spa-cation.

2. Spa At The Eau Palm Beach

Head just a bit farther north and spend an afternoon at Eau Spa, a 42,000-square-foot oasis complete with steam rooms, whirlpools, saunas, bath lounges and bottomless sparkling wine and cupcakes (yes, cupcakes!). Be sure to take advantage of the Scrub and Polish Bar, where you can create a personalized blend of aromatic herbs, oils and sea salts.
