When people escape to the beaches of Tampa Bay, they typically do so with the notion of unwinding in paradise. Here the air is abundant and clean. The waters are gentle and soothing. The aroma of flowers proliferates throughout lush tropical landscapes. ‘Ah, this is the life. This is how it was meant to be lived,’ you say to yourself.
You see, everyone needs some TLC every now and then. Perhaps you haven’t taken the time to care for yourself in some time, or maybe you and your significant other needed some time where it’s just the two of you. Whatever your reason may be for coming to the area, you should embrace it to the fullest and savor every moment.
One of the best ways you can embrace the spirit of the treasured Florida lifestyle is by visiting one of the area’s spas. There are quite a few up and down the beaches, each offering their own unique spin on rest and relaxation. Here are some of our favorites. Take your pick and enjoy this much-needed getaway that will certainly rejuvenate you.
Lemon Tree Spa
The Lemon Tree Spa isn’t just a spa – it’s a holistic wellness center dedicated to the art of peaceful living. You can choose from a variety of facials, skin treatments, massages, waxing, and aromatherapy treatments. A detox wrap helps remove toxins from beneath the skin and promotes cellular energy. A seaweed wrap also flushes out impurities of the skin and reduces water retention. And Organic or European Facial brings out the youth of your skin, while a Spa Glo Treatment gives you a sun-kissed healthy look without hours of being in the sun. They are located in St. Pete Beach.
David Wayne Salon and Spa
The David Wayne Salon and Spa in downtown Tierra Verde is the place to go for hair and nail care on the beaches. Everyone wants to look beautiful in their vacation photographs. Why not go in for a touchup on color, some fresh new highlights, a trim, or even a conditioning treatment to liven up your locks? You can also have a gorgeous pedicure that will look perfect in pair of sandals or open-toe heels. Try their new GELeration manicures, which last for several weeks at a time and pose no harm to the natural nail. It’s a much healthier, more natural alternative to acrylics, although they do those as well.
Jacqueline’s Salon and Day Spa
Get pampered ‘the island way’ with Jacqueline’s Salon and Day Spa in Treasure Island. Choose from massages, body treatments, facials, hair, nails, waxing, and even makeup. If you’re looking to detox and want silky smooth skin, try the Milk and Honey Scrub or the Sedona Mud Wrap. For tired muscles, go for a Relaxation Massage with a Foot Scrub and Hot Stone Treatment. They offer a full array of hair services so you can get all the beauty touchups you need – highlights, color, and cut. You can also explore some amazing add-ons like organic makeup application (perfect for that romantic dinner) or butterfly lash extensions.
