If you find yourself growing unusually cranky during your white-knuckle commute through Miami’s gridlock, or you realize you’ve become snappy with the barista during your morning cafecito pit stop, it may be a sign from the gods: get thee to a health and wellness mecca. The stress of the 305 could be seeping into your pores — and if that keeps up? Well, it’s not gonna be pretty.

Thankfully, if Magic City gets under your skin, there’s respite for your weary soul at the Carillon, one of Miami’s premiere addresses, housing both private condos as well as a stellar health and wellness resort with ample opportunities for taking care of numero uno.

Thankfully, the Carillon’s luxe services are open to everyone — not merely residents or hotel guests, and this opens up a world of pampering to locals.  In addition to a full-service spa, the Carillon offers a wealth of functional and alternative medicine options, including access to nutritionists and energy workers.

So, what wonders await you?

When you arrive you’ll find yourself on a sprawling waterfront property along Collins Avenue in North Beach, one of the city’s most increasingly beloved neighborhoods. The Carillon’s meticulous property and stylish towers bear a storied history. Designed by renowned architect, Norman M. Giller, and originally opened in 1958, the property hosted the era’s most glamorous stars at shimmering cabaret performances. Today, there’s a quieter, but no less plush vibe.

Once you’ve finished ogling your surroundings, book an appointment to experience any of the following:

Whether your weary muscles need a deep massage, your skin itches for a pick-me-up, or your cellulite needs vanishing, the spa has you covered with an array of treatments featuring Clarins products. We dig the 100-minute Deep Sleep treatment. You’ll experience a full-body exfoliation, unwind on a “floating” spa bed, and melt away every last bit of stress during a nose-to-toes massage complete with soothing plant oils. Zzzzzzzzz.

After your treatment (or before) take advantage of the spa’s thermal experience: a series of rain showers, whirlpools, steam rooms, saunas, and a visit to an “igloo” — yes, you read that right, an igloo. Wander through at your own pace, grow ever more relaxed, and experience total mind-body peace.
