Many Miami vacations revolve around indulgent dining and nightlife, but Carillon Miami Wellness Resort is a far cry from that. Located in north Miami Beach, this hotel wants guests to enjoy new physical and mental health highs rather than hangovers. The property is home to a sprawling spa, fitness center, wellness area and even thoughtful health touches in-room. Here’s what a healthy vacation at Carillon Miami looks like.
Fitness and Wellness Come First
The property motto is “come as you are, leave as you’ve never been” and guests are encouraged to book customized fitness and wellness programs to make that happen. Whether you like group fitness or solo workouts, you have a huge number of activities to choose from. There are 65+ weekly fitness classes to choose from including boxing, reformer pilates, rock climbing and boot camps. For those looking to work out on their own time, the massive gym decked out in Technogym cardio and weight equipment beckons with stunning views of the ocean while you exercise.
After a workout, guests can cool off and regenerate in the hotel’s hydrotherapy circuit which features both hot and cold therapy suites which help stimulate circulation and can prevent muscle aches. Get transported to the tropics with one of their warm rain showers or feel the arctic chill in one of their igloo rooms.
If you want to up the ante wellness-wise, book one of their touchless wellness treatments which features an array of next-level offerings. Sure, you’ve heard of cryotherapy but do V.E.M.I., Somadome or halotherapy ring a bell?
V.E.M.I. stands for VibroAcoustic, ElectroMagnetic and Infrared technology during which sound resonance is used to heal the body and mind. During your session you will lay on a full-body mat wearing headphones listening to harmonics that promise to remove electro-smog radiation, detoxify your body and help you reach a meditative state. During Somadome, you’ll be seated in the world’s first technology enabled meditation pod soaking up bineural beats, and colors to help you achieve your intentions. This machine is particularly good for people who have trouble focusing during meditation as sitting in the pod completely immerses you in the meditative state. Lastly halotherapy (which comes in tandem with an infrared sauna at Carillon), helps detox your airways and skin through the use of salt.
The Carillon also has an expansive spa where you can enjoy massages, effective facials and other beauty treatments. The spa program blends eastern, western, alternative and aesthetic medicine for best results.
Accommodations Built for Recovery
The apartment-style rooms at Carillon Miami are large and offer great sea views with balcony access to relax after a day of workouts and wellness. If you want to take your sleep to the next level, request to stay in one of their rooms with Bryte mattresses. Bryte uses AI and smart technology to help improve your sleep through temperature, mattress adjustments and more. At the end of the night you’ll get a review of how you slept, which parts of your body needed readjusting for maximum comfort and the exact number of deep sleep minutes you got. If you’d like to become a better sleeper — and as we all know, sleep is essential for our overall wellbeing — the Bryte mattress is a great place to get a better understanding of how you spend your nights.
Dining and Drinks
Of course, being a wellness property, Carillon Miami has many nutritious offerings including salads, juice-based mocktails and more. However, there are also just plain delicious options, such as their spaghetti bolognese which is rich and filling. After a day of sports and wellness treatments, you deserve it. The property is not a hotel which encourages restrictions but rather wants you to build healthy habits.
A Miami vacation doesn’t always need to be late nights and excess, in fact, when you stay at Carillon Miami you’ll reach new heights when it comes to health, fitness and wellness.
