A Social Diva has hella high standards, so when it comes to maxin’ and relaxin’ Miami-style, there’s only one place to go: The Standard, Miami.
Located on Belle Isle overlooking beautiful Biscayne Bay, The Standard offers a Roman waterfall hot tub with an eight-foot cascade of water, a Yoga studio overlooking the bay that is so relaxing you would have to try (hard) to not achieve total Zen, clothing-optional mud baths, and facial and body treatments that put you in touch with your holistic diva.
Oh, and let’s not forget about The Standard’s infamous Turkish Hamam. Just as chill and uber-relaxing as it is luxurious and opulent, the Hamam features communal platforms constructed of heated marble to soothe your muscles — we suggest you follow up your marble layout with a dip into an icy plunge pool, or take a trip to one of the Hamam’s steam rooms, saunas, bath tubs or showers to achieve total relaxation.
Along with all of their splendid spa services, The Standard offers some other amenities that you might not expect from your average spa. We advise Miami locals and visitors alike to hit up The Standard’s Love Life Sundays from Noon to Midnight, rain or shine. Featuring music by Induce and Matt Cash, patrons enjoy drinks and snacks at the Lido Restaurant, bar, poolside or on the deck overlooking the bay. Plus, play The Standard’s world famous bingo (starting at 8:00PM) with almost-famous hosts (Diva tested, and totally fun!), or join weekly Guitar Hero tournaments in the lounge.
WARNING: Staying and playing at The Standard may cause you to raise your expectations so high that nothing else will ever come close to satisfying.
