When you’re busy, finding time to spend with your girl friends can be difficult. It’s easy to lose touch and miss the important moments in each other’s lives. This summer, set aside a few days and take the trip of a lifetime with your favourite ladies to Miami. There are plenty of deals on Florida flights at the moment and it will be a holiday to remember as you spend luxurious days in the sun and exhilarating nights taking in everything the city has to offer.
The best way to start off a girls’ weekend is by indulging in some pampering at the spa. Not only will you feel relaxed and refreshed, but you’ll get to spend quality time with your besties as well. The Aqua Spa at the Delano hotel is one of the best in Miami. It is situated on the roof with ocean views and a Zen-like atmosphere for when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the Miami streets. The spa specialises in mineral treatments and massages, like algae soaks and 60-minute milk and honey massages. A favourite of celebrities, The Standard has a comprehensive spa that combines fitness and relaxation. From yoga to juice detox to tension-busting massages, The Standard’s philosophy of integrated wellness offers just about anything you could want.
After the spa, have lunch right by the seaside at DiLido at the Ritz-Carlton. Inspired by the sea, the cuisine dazzles with a selection of fresh seafood like shrimp ceviche and blackened Mahi-mahi, along with an adventurous tropical cocktail menu.
Miami is well known for shopping and is home to the Aventura Mall, which is the third biggest mall in the USA. Aventura is a one-stop fashion destination, with more than 300 stores including luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Hugo Boss, and Pucci. If you and your friends prefer boutiques to the big name brands, South Beach is an eclectic area of Miami where you’ll find stores selling one-of-a-kind bohemian or vintage inspired pieces.
For a ladies’ night, there’s nothing better than grabbing a cocktail at The Broken Shaker. The drinks are deliciously inspired, with a menu featuring handcrafted, herb-infused cocktails. The mixologists are knowledgeable and can knock you up something on the spot based on your taste preferences. The garden space has a lit swimming pool and twinkle lights that create a magical ambience as night falls. Whether you’re chatting with your friends or mingling, it’s the perfect way to finish off a lively day in Miami.
