In desperate need of a “me” day? There’s nothing like a day at a spa, especially a resort spa. From a full-body massage to a pedicure or sauna, spa time is much-needed time, especially for those who are constantly on the go. If you didn’t already know it, today’s high-stress lifestyle takes its toll on health and wellness over the long-haul. That’s all the more reason to relax and recoup when you spend a morning or afternoon at any of the best resort spas in the US.

SiSpa, Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa, Palm Beach FL
Youthful skin is far from underrated, and as we begin to age we realize the importance of taking great care of our faces and bodies. Get one step closer to youthful skin and tone your facial muscles through the NUFace Skin Fit Facial paired with marine-based Phytomer skin care. After, try a replenishing Phytomer treatment called the “Sitonic,” which will give your body the attention it deserves, restoring its tone and elasticity. During a Dilo Rescue Wrap, Dilo body gel (made from tropical dilo nut oil that’s rich in vitamins A, C, E, plus coconut oil and aloe) coats the skin, before it’s wrapped in a cocoon. All three treatments at SiSpa Singer Island are priced at $99 from April 1 through May 31.
