Beauty & the Sea

Abounding in minerals and possessing the innate ability to calm, water is a spa’s top natural agent. Embrace the beautifying, peaceful powers of the ocean during these water-themed treatments:

Waldorf Astoria Spa at Boca Raton Resort & Club

The Waldorf Astoria Spa’s Vichy shower, an experience that involves lying on a massage table while water rains down from shower heads above, provides the sensation of being enveloped in water and the ocean’s spray kissing the body. Go for the full sea effect with the Detox Marine Body Wrap Rainbar Service. In this 50-minute treatment, a bamboo polish exfoliates the skin and a marine algae wrap delivers a detoxifying, hydrating, and firming result. Boca Raton (561-347-4772,       

Eau Spa, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

The Mermaid Treatment at Eau Spa asks guests to embrace their inner mythical sea goddess. Begin by lounging in the Self-Centered Garden, kicking back in the hanging chairs and dipping your fins in the water below. Then, indulge your flippers with a custom-made exfoliating foot polish followed by a soothing foot massage. An aesthetician will concoct a scrub with ingredients from the spa’s Scrub & Polish Bar, like sea salt and sand paired with scents of your choosing. A to-go kit containing your custom polish blend, a loofah, body spritzer, and moisturizing butter ensures the mermaid adventure follows you home. Manalapan (561-540-4960,

The Spa at PGA National Resort

The restorative properties of water are omnipresent at The Spa at PGA National Resort. We recommend the Youth Revelation Facial, which starts with the scent of seaside plant extracts and a Marine Mist. The skin is exfoliated and then a Wrinkle-Filling Wax is applied, targeting lines with hyaluronic acid and marine extracts. A series of Phytomer products, containing seawater or sea plants, completes the facial. Afterward, reap the benefits of swimming in the mineral-rich Dead Sea Pool, or take the plunge into the chilly Pyrenees Pool, inspired by the salty Salies-de-Béarn waters believed to decrease inflammation.
