Of course, we have private rooms for those one-on-one treatments like facials and massages, but the ethos of our spa is a sense of community and interaction that creates an entirely unique wellness experience.
This sentiment is only heightened and elevated with newly restored features and easy, breezy wayfinding to make your Standard Spa experience stress-free from beginning to end.
So what’s new? Our massive Turkish Hammam, Eucalyptus Steam Room and Sound Showers have been fully refreshed; we revamped The Sauna to be a cedar-clad cocoon with an eye-shaped window overlooking Biscayne Bay (deep enough to sit in!), and we added in an Ice Room with a delightful sofa designed like a Neopolitan ice cream sandwich. The reception area, treatment rooms and Lori Bell’s official astrology headquarters have been fully renovated, the gym has a fresh new look, there’s a completely new, bright-colored stairwell for direct and easy access, and a lounge with Danish daybeds and water views to post up in before or after you do your thing.
As always, The Standard Spa is a choose-your-own-adventure kind of place. But, we know, it can be overwhelming, So our astute spa director, Dennis, put together a guide for how to best experience all these new spaces. Scroll through below for more images and to read on.
Central to our indoor baths is the hamam. Tiers of heated marble are perfect for lying down to melt tight overworked muscles, light stretching, or even a little nap. Inspired by the hamams of Turkey and Northern Africa, we offer several treatments, including our signature Hamam Rub & Scrub, performed on the heated marble.
After the Hammam, take a seat in the aromatherapy steam room. It is both hotter and more humid than the hamam, and the steam is infused with eucalyptus to refresh your mind. For a break from the heat, take advantage of the sound shower room or rain shower with head and body jets just outside the steam room.
Next, check out the Finnish sauna. Constructed of Canadian hemlock, the heat gently releases the natural scent of the wood, subtly connecting you to nature. Lie back and breathe deeply or sit up to enjoy the bay view through the window. The room is the hottest option but with the lowest humidity.
Yes, it’s cold. In a nod to northern traditions of following a sauna with a cold immersion, take a seat on the comfy sofa, shaped like an ice cream sandwich. A few minutes there should have you ready to get back to the warmer areas.
Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation
Ditch the botox, stop the fillers and try acupuncture instead for a natural, healthy “facelift.” Acupuncture’s gentle use of fine needles, microcurrents, and herbs can achieve dramatic anti-aging results, which work from the inside out. Each person shows age differently. Individual life stories, ailments, joys, and successes are reflected like a canvas on our faces. Why not opt to share these experiences yourself rather than having your face reveal them? Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation can help turn back the aging clock. This practice dates to the 9th Century Chinese Sung Dynasty, where it was used as part of the health and beauty regimen among empresses and royal consorts. Facial acupuncture starts with a constitutional treatment, a 5-element assessment to address underlying imbalances – reducing stress, improving digestion and sleep quality, as well as strengthening your immune system. You get to look beautiful and feel great!
