South Beach is known for its signature art-deco designs, pristine beaches, and energetic nightlife. Taking a cue from that dynamic locale, the staff members of South Beach Tanning Company have decorated their various locations in the spirit of South Beach and pride themselves on their upbeat, lounge-like vibe. Inside each salon, cheery lighting and bright purple, blue, and red walls augment the high-quality equipment and shelves of handpicked lotions, and high ceilings stop newly acquired tans from floating off just-bronzed bodies.
Planet Beach is a one-stop-shop for beauty and wellness. Members can stay bronzed all year long in the UV tanning booths and recharge any solar-powered body doubles. But one of the highlights of the studio is the futuristic Contempo Spa onsite, a self-serve spa machine where you can push a button to receive a number of spa services without the need for an attendant. The machine's HydroMassage bed helps alleviate muscle soreness with targeted waves of heated water. Other DIY services available: 15-minute teeth whitening procedures and Lumiere.
