Miami Beach: Just What the Doctor Ordered

January 25, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Miami Beach is earning its reputation as a destination like no place else in the world this winter, as the Northeast and Midwest experience bone chilling cold air with wind chills far below zero.

“What a perfect destination to renew, restore and rejuvenate to begin the new year,” says Grisette Roque-Marcos, Executive Director, the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority. “Miami Beach is poised to welcome the world eager to escape the winter doldrums and put their faces to the sun to thaw out, unwind and relax.”

Start with a simple jog on the boardwalk, yoga on the sand or a reenergizing spa day at any of the luxury spas that call Miami Beach home. Experience an outdoor, poolside massage to ward off the seasonal depression that often sets in with bone chilling winter temperatures. Visitors will find everything they are looking for to reset, re-energize and revitalize in 2014.GOOGLE_DISPLAY_WEB_ADS

Here’s what’s happening on Miami Beach to kick off that renewal pledge:


The Standard Spa Miami Beach – The Standard is a holistic paradise in every sense. Located on Miami Beach’s Belle Isle, the world renowned hydrotherapy spa hotel takes the concept of the “spa hotel” to the next level. Both the spa and the health and wellness programs have different detox programs that will help guests prepare for the New Year.

The Canyon Ranch Miami Beach Hotel & Spa – Not only does the Hotel & Spa provide exceptional spa services but their health & wellness programs go above and beyond services you’ll find at other spas and the 70,000-square-foot Canyon wellness spa is the largest in the state of Florida.


Yoga on the Sand – Free yoga classes are held daily at the 3rd Street Beach in Miami Beach. With a mission to provide affordable and accessible yoga classes to both residents and visitors, guest teachers host a healthy dose of downward dog while the sun sets over the Atlantic. Donations are welcome.

Paddle Boarding at the Standard Hotel – Groups can get an amazing workout while awakening their surfer spirit on Biscayne Bay. This hour-long group session is $40. More information can be found here:

Fly Wheel Miami Beach – Flywheel indoor cycling classes are designed to transform bodies and renew energy. Tucked into Sunset Harbor, the newest Fly Wheel studio is steps away from upscale shops, trendy restaurants and bustling Lincoln Road.

DecoBike – DecoBike is the public bicycle sharing and rental program in the world-famous South Beach Art Deco district and is the country’s first green city-wide public transit program. Riders can dock/park a bike at any station and check out another during the rental period. Hop on the DecoBike and ride to your next location.


Normandy Isle Farmers Market – Arrive early for organic fruits and veggies from Florida’s little known farm district, the Red Lands. Besides some of the freshest (and most exotic!) produce available, the market also has ready-to-eat homemade Peruvian ceviche, empanadas, artisan breads and smoothies. Bon appétit.

Essensia Restaurant & Lounge – Essensia Restaurant follows a farm-to-table philosophy, offering a seasonal selection of wholesome global cuisine with emphasis on premium local and sustainable ingredients from carefully selected purveyors. Essensia’s menu features healthy, flavorful dishes made with produce, meats and seafood primarily sourced from within the State of Florida.

JugoFresh – This South Beach juice bar features organic, cold-pressed juices, superfood smoothies, cleanses and raw and vegan foods. The juice bar is a favorite of celebrity Lenny Kravitz.

With its balmy air, beautiful beaches, sexy nightlife and hot and steamy weather, Miami Beach is certainly positioned well for that renewal getaway starting with a giant dose of Vitamin D. The perfect backdrop for those new year resolutions inspired by a “New Year, New You” makeover, Miami Beach is the ideal destination to start fresh.
