The St. Somewhere Spa may be the only place in the world where you can enjoy your lost shaker of salt two ways: by sipping on a classic margarita while having an exfoliating salt-scrub body treatment. But that’s really no surprise, considering the spa is located at the four-star Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort.
The 349-room, Jimmy Buffett-songs-inspired resort, located on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, opened last September; its 11,000-square-foot spa opened two months later.
Inspired by the tropical ambience of South Florida, the newly opened spa has a friendly, relaxed vibe that makes guests feel comfortable from the moment they arrive. And, with 11 treatment rooms – including two designed specifically for couples – as well as steam rooms, a Vichy shower treatment room, rainfall showers and the co-ed Blue Heaven Rendezvous whirlpool and lounge area, there’s something here for everyone.
“We have a high-end spa with a relaxing environment,” says spa director Joanie Bowden. “We want people to see the luxury but have fun as well.”
Available services at the St. Somewhere Spa, which is designed with natural accents and soothing, buttery-yellow walls, range from $35 for a 25-minute Margaritaville Manicure to $220 for an 80-minute Hot Stone Therapy. In-room massages and couple’s treatments are available at additional cost. The spa’s signature Lost Shaker of Salt Scrub, available for 25 or 50 minutes, includes a complimentary margarita with the 50-minute treatment for guests over 21. “It’s pretty unique,” Bowden says. “We try to create the spa menu around the brand.”
The spa has several special offers for local residents looking for a single-day escape. In addition to the usual 15 percent discount for Florida residents, those booking a treatment of $50 or more Monday through Thursday can purchase a pool pass for $25. The pass grants access to the pool areas, typically reserved only for hotel guests.
In addition, the spa features a two-for-one summer offer through Sept. 30: Book a mini-facial and receive a complimentary head, neck and shoulder massage.
St. Somewhere Spa, 1111 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood, open daily 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Call 954-874-4430 or visit margaritavillehollywoodbeachresort.com/spa.
