A flock of macaws soars across a bright blue sky, a leopard dips his toes in a serene pool, and jungle vines wind their way through the canopy overhead. This may sound like a hot vacation spot, but it's actually the décor where you're more likely to prep for your next vacation: Boca Tanning Club. Founded in 2002, Boca Tanning Club's tropical-inspired design permeates all of its locations and so does its commitment to customer satisfaction. Its salons feature top-of-the-line equipment and the convenience of 24-hour service, allowing clients to make the sun jealous by tanning in the dead of night. The warming rays of a stand-up booths and Ergoline high-pressure beds impart skin with a deep, long-lasting tan. For UV-free color, Boca Tanning Club also offers spray tanning from Norvell and VersaSpa.
With more than 140 locations nationwide, B-Tan's tanning-booth technology and UV-free spray tans bronze the skin of people coast to coast. Its ultra-high-powered booths, such as the HT60 or HT54, ply skin with UV rays to build a tan quickly in short sessions. Alternatively, the sun shy can bask in the bronzing mist of Mystic Tan machines. After a few spritzes, the machines coat bodies in a streak-free color up to five shades darker than their natural skin tone.
The reflections of fluorescent lights sparkle off glossy floors at Electric Sun Tanning Salons, but the vibrant interior is not the space's most notable use of light. The salon boasts a fleet of tanning beds with five different levels of bronzing intensity for tanners of all complexions. For a UV-free alternative, guests can enter the standup booth of the VersaSpa spray-tanning system, which coats bodies in an even, natural-looking tan.
The airbrush artists of Golden Mobile Spray Tan use their special airbrush-tanning equipment to create masterworks of healthy, radiant, muscle-tone-enhancing color on clients from head to toe. The spray techs arrive to patrons' chosen destinations in Hartford or Middlesex Counties and beyond, ready to glaze bodies with UV-free color in preparation for big events, photo ops, and bikini-clad excursions. Techs adjust the color of the organic, botanical solution that can be customized to clients’ skin shade and desired depth of tan.
For first-time tanners, a skin type analysis helps determine what level of glow suits their natural complexions best. Airbrush artists enhance appointments with comfort-focused details, including hair caps, feet protectors, and a privacy pop-up tent to ensure sprays bronze skin and not furniture. Once applied, spray tans develop within five hours to a radiant glow that doesn't require an honorary degree from a lightning-bug university.
When it comes to tanning, one technique does not fit all. The bronzing experts at Body Heat Tanning know this and take time to work with each client to determine his or her particular tanning goals. They also pay close attention to skin type to ensure a safe, customized bronzing program. Along with a variety of high-performance UV beds, Body Heat Tanning also offers airbrush spray tans, which are applied by certified pros for a bronze that looks fresh from the beach.
A waterfall babbles over stones and splashes plants outside. Inside the themed private rooms set the scene for massage and holistic therapies. Touch of Class Day Spa's serene decor and skilled technicians have caught the eyes of many. Even former Coral Springs mayor Scott Brook praises the place, echoing the state emperor in saying, "I love coming to Touch of Class. I love everything about the place from the moment I walk in: The fragrance is wonderful, the service is excellent."
The spa specializes in couples massage, though it also offers custom and clinical facials, body wraps and scrubs, and waxing. Duos can settle down for a side-by-side massage in the garden-themed couples room or step into the second floor's Moroccan couples room, where swaths of vivid fabric billow out from the ceiling. Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese, and Thai treatment rooms also swaddle clients in exotic patterns and ambiances.
