A day at the spa can eliminate the previous day’s stress, just like journaling before bed or crushing walnuts in your fists while you sleep. Seek soothing respite with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a premier spa day at Seven Seas Spa & Salon, located at the Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort in Sunny Isles Beach (up to a $300 value). The package includes the following:
- A 60-minute Elemental Nature massage (up to a $99 value)
- A 60-minute Aveda Elemental Nature facial (up to a $99 value)
- A spa luncheon with champagne (a $50 value)
- All-day use of a beach tiki hut (a $40 value)
- Valet parking (a $12 value)<p>
Surrounded by underwater-inspired décor, Seven Seas Spa & Salon’s professional aestheticians relax visitors with Aveda Elemental Nature’s eco-conscious philosophies. Pampering kicks off 30–45 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment, as guests relieve tension and smooth out wrinkled tracksuits within a steam shower and relaxation area. After suiting up in slippers and a robe, clients select an Aveda aroma to bolster the one-hour massage, which therapists customize using such modalities as acupressure and reflexology. Next, a similarly personalized facial targets specific skincare needs after an Aveda Elemental Nature consultation detects whether a client’s skin is dry, oily, congested, or hungry.
Before or after the treatments, a poolside lunch tackles hunger pangs with a chef-created salad or sandwich and a bottomless vessel of champagne. Guests then venture to a tiki hut on the beach, gazing into the picturesque sea and contemplating how best to blackmail a whale before retreating back to Seven Seas Spa & Salon’s confines. A candlelit entrance greets customers, and tree-branch and coral-like sculptures imbue natural twists throughout the space. In the lounge area, walls glow with purple and blue lights behind cushy chairs that surround a cascade of dangling, translucent orbs.
Though Seven Seas Spa & Salon sometimes offers discounted rates online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon
The color scheme inside Aveda Seven Seas Spa & Salon transitions from chartreuse to cool blues, as if narrating, in color, the space's shift from the liveliness of the friendly stylists on the hair-salon floor to the relaxation of the soothing spa services. Using all-natural Aveda products, the hair designers snip away and demonstrate the skills they've learned in the educational workshops they attend regularly to keep abreast of the latest cut, color, and styling trends. Equally savvy spa technicians work back in the spa space, lit by royal-blue bulbs and accented by cascading light fixtures and wavy white walls. Inside private treatment rooms, gentle facials and massages immerse clients in soothing scents and sensations as effectively as a hot tub whose water has been replaced with aromatherapy oil.
