Miami Spa Month is an annual promotional event where more than 30 top-notch resort and hotel spas in Miami offer spa treatments for $99 during the month of July and (usually) August. It is sponsored by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau as a way to lure tourists during the summer off-season, but it's a great deal for locals, too.
Miami Spa Month is a great opportunity to check out lavish hotel spas where the treatments are usually much more expensive. Participants include Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach and Canyon Ranch Miami Beach Wellness Spa, Canyon Ranch Miami Beach. The nice thing is that you get access to their extensive spa facilities, pool and even beaches, so you can make a day of it.

How Do I Get The Best Deals Out Of Miami Spa Month?
Look at what kind of service it is and how long it lasts. Some are 50 minutes, some 60 minutes, while others are 80 minutes. You might also look at how lavish their facilities are whether they have a beach, and what their regular prices are to decide how good of a deal it is.
Why Aren't They $50 Like Spa Week?
