The treatment ends with vibrational singing bowls and sound healing to calm the nervous system.

the epitome of refined luxury.

The Blue Diamond Resurfacing Peel, an anti-aging peel with Blue Diamond Super Cream, is seriously over the top, and yields seriously over the top lightening, brightening and firming results.

It’s available on its own or as part of the limited Diamond Package, in celebration of the St. Regis Bal Harbor’s 10th anniversary.

A follow-up at-home regimen of products is available to help keep up the results.

The Standard Spa

At the ever-buzzy waterfront

The Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation, developed by Bell, is the new cult favorite, and includes a five-element assessment to target underlying imbalances due to stress, insomnia and poor digestion with the use of fine needles, microcurrent and herbs—all resulting in a dramatic anti-aging “facelift.”

NuCalm is, essentially, a sophisticated power nap, promoting relaxation in 30 to 90 minutes with patented technology that interrupts stress at the midbrain.

The treatment uses neuropsychobiology to guide the brain and body into parasympathetic nervous system dominance, slowing the “flight-or-fight” response as cortisol levels start to decline and you begin to relax and deeply de-stress.

Acqualina Spa

The Targeted Recovery is designed to help aid muscle recovery for those who work out too hard.

It starts by warming up the body with the Hypervolt Bluetooth by Hyperice, followed by a deep-tissue massage with ESPA fitness oil to stimulate the circulation.

The coup de grace is a cryotherapy session to heal sore muscles, which focuses on specific muscle groups—upper and lower back, legs—to release muscle tension.

An exclusive, full-body experience, the indulgent Setai Signature Master of Time Treatment begins with a full-body exfoliation followed by an application of Valmont Body 24-hour cream, which repairs sun damage while providing intense hydration.

The therapist will next employ the exclusive Valmont Time Master Cure, which uses four choreographed facial massages, including a specialized lifting massage, to leave facial muscles both toned and relaxed.

A Valmont collagen mask is then applied to the face, eyes and décolleté.

Esencia Wellness Spa

Inspired by nature and the ocean views

Essence of Omakase features your choice of three “multi-course” spa treatments, inspired by the Japanese notion of “chef’s choice.”

The Ki, or “Energize”, treatment is a standout, and starts with dry sauna to relax the muscles, leading into a Japanese Silk full-body exfoliation that stimulates circulation and energy flow and leaves skin soft and silky.

A revitalizing scalp massage and hair mask follows before you’re sent off to relax with an herbal infusion tea or a glass of bubbly—your choice.
