While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
South Beach Tans and Spa partitions its newly remodeled facility into two separate spaces: a secluded spa area offering skincare and waxing services and a livelier hallway that opens into private UV- and spray-tanning rooms. Clients can purchase single sessions or monthly packages for regular beds as well as VHO beds, which employ 42 lamps to produce a darker tan.
The company’s aestheticians curate complexions in warm, softly lit treatment rooms with noninvasive skin treatments designed to soften the signs of aging. The spa team also specializes in hair-removal using sugaring paste—a compound blended from sugar, lemon juice, and water—that exfoliates skin while yanking follicles out by the root, ensuring less hair breakage than tweezing or blasts from a freeze ray.

Rounding out their beautifying services are body wraps, lash extensions, and facials, as well as an onsite boutique that offers swimwear, jewelry, hats, sunglasses, and more.
