A visitor to Diamante Day Spa won?t be hurting for options: between the spa?s 20 different massage styles and 18 distinct facials, clients could be forgiven for having a hard time knowing which treatments would benefit them most. That?s why it?s fortunate that holistic practitioner and spa founder Tara Darlene Diamant? Canhos is not only a skilled massage therapist, but also an experienced lifestyle coach and spiritual consultant. Canhos and her staff utilize this experience to help clients devise the perfect array of treatments. Specialty services encompass mainly Eastern holistic healing practices?chakra balancing, yoga nidra meditation, Tibetan reflexology?which is why it?s fitting that the spa is also home to a zen lounge area complete with fresh fruit, organic herbal teas, and no howler monkeys.
Spa rooms segue seamlessly into nature-inspired amenities at Spa 66, connecting visitors to a waterfall oasis, lush gardens, and vitamin-D-spouting sun. The spa staff uses salves and products crafted from fresh, locally sourced ingredients during their treatments, which run the gamut from peppermint-scented massages to skin-brightening facials. Spa goers can relax and and enjoy many services including the key lime pedicure, ayuvedic shiradhara, and honey herbal moisturizing body wrap.
Coastal Yacht Tours' private Italian yacht plays host to classy, catered affairs along the New River and Inter-coastal Waterway. During cruises, guests marvel at views of million-dollar mansions and bask in the splendor of historic Fort Lauderdale. And when food is served?think shrimp cocktails, gourmet cheese platters, and fresh fruit?they can head into the salon, where plush leather seating and rich wood walls turn any meal into a luxurious experience.
In addition to its general cruises, Coastal Yacht Tours has also partnered with waterfront restaurants to offer a specialty restaurant cruise. Cocktails are served as captains steer toward the restaurant and dolphin waiters rush ahead to put in food orders. Upon arrival, guests are dropped off in front of the restaurant and led to a private reserved table to enjoy their meal before re-boarding the yacht and continuing down the water.
Without a boat, it's hard to water-ski, snorkel, or arrive at a waterfront restaurant in style. Luckily, for people who don't own a personal watercraft, Best Boat Club and Rentals has been renting out a fleet of well-maintained vessels for almost two decades. At locations in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Captiva Island, the company outfits aspiring boaters with everything they'll need for a day on the waves. With their "Water Limo" service, they even furnish guests with a driver, so they can devote their time on the boat more fully to looking for its gills. However, if clients want to improve their skills at the helm, the company's team has them covered there, too, with hands-on powerboat training and a sailing school.
The pastry chefs at Gone Cupcaking Across America share a wealth of gourmet cupcake experience with aspiring dessert artisans, in flavors that include whisked buttercream atop classic vanilla, chocolate, and red-velvet cake bases, and more exotic choices such as Grand Marnier or peaches 'n' cream. At lessons, students learn piping techniques, how to make frosting, and how to make iced flowers without the hassle of fertilizing regular flowers with milk and butter.
