Every element of Tranquility at Doral contributes to its status as a great place to relax. The 2,000-square-foot facility looks every bit the part of a harmonious sanctuary: it’s filled with feng shui–inspired decor, elegant plants, and Buddha statues, and even includes a lotus garden and a patio for special events. Flickering candles illuminate the center's 10 treatment rooms, where aestheticians brighten and firm dry, oily, and aging skin with a handful of facial treatments and body wraps infused with chocolate, sea algae, and black pearl. The spa also offers advanced ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation for the skin, as well as tanning sessions in a standup SunDash 252 Radius booth. To relax before or after their treatments, clients can sip a glass of house wine as a technician sings a really slow version of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
Tranquility Day Spa’s massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians whisk visitors away on a cloud of relaxation with a menu of spa services and packages. The skincare team specializes in facials that remedy a variety of epidermal maladies, such as acne and the effects of aging, and nonsurgical facelifts that rely on enzymes and amino acids to stimulate collagen growth and improve skin's elasticity. The spa's arsenal of body-care treatments includes contouring wraps, scrubs, and eight types of massage, which treat pains caused by a stressful week at work or a long day of avoiding work by hiding the office water cooler.
The studio at Javier's Hair Salon and Day Spa strikes a bold visual impression, what with the black-leather styling chairs, brushed-metal accents, and a natural-wood floor that resembles wave-washed sand—all set against a blue wall. This artistic statement mirrors the approach of Javier Campos and his team—including stylist Pamela Coder— who style women's, men's, and children's hair with salon services such as haircuts, coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments. The staff's expertise further extends to aesthetic and spa services, such as facials, mani-pedis, waxing, and massage.
Kristen, the certified massage therapist behind My Kneaded Touch, believes that therapeutic touch can improve virtually any condition. During sessions held within Bliss Salon and Spa, she dissipates tension with gentle Swedish strokes, roots out chronic aches with deep-tissue kneads, and addresses issues such as headaches or fibromyalgia with more focused techniques. Try a treatment that incorporates warm desert stones if you want an extra dose of pampering or if you're a cold-blooded lizard.
Candlelit rooms create a temporary sanctuary from life's daily stresses at The Lux Day Spa. The spa's therapists tackle pain with a variety of techniques, using deep-tissue pressures to break up adhesions and heated stones to relax tense muscles. There's even a special prenatal massage to help expectant mothers find relief from aches and discomfort. But massage isn't all the spa offers; exfoliating wraps and UV-free spray tans headline a long list of beautifying treatments.
At Velma Coontz Massage Therapy, the healing hands of a licensed massage therapist work away chronic pain and pent-up stress with soothing treatments. Swedish massages reduce joint stiffness and muscle soreness, whereas deep-tissue, trigger-point, and sports massages tackle targeted areas and muscle groups.
