Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe
The Carillon Miami Wellness resort sits on a 750 meter stretch of private beach overlooking the ocean and boasts a multitude of wellness facilities and offerings to suit all activity levels. On arrival at the resort, guests are provided with an activity schedule packed full of wellness-related endeavors such as yoga, Pilates, meditation, cycling, zumba, ballet, strength training, kettlebells, TRX, barre, aerobics, rock climbing and pool-based fitness classes. I chose to try a rock climbing class in the afternoon and sunrise meditation followed by yoga the next morning. With expert instructors always on hand to provide guidance and ensure safety, guests at the Carillon are always in good hands.
In addition to the impressive list of 40+ activities per day, the Carillon boasts an expansive fitness area with ocean view and state of the art equipment including Technogym ARTIS cardio machines and Technogym Kinesis functional training equipment. There are several pools to choose from at The Carillon. Family pools are at ground level while the adults-only Atlantic Rooftop Pool provides the perfect setting for a morning aqua fitness class or a relaxing quiet place to spend the day.
The beautifully appointed one and two bedroom suites at the Carillon range from 720 to 1200 square feet, with floor to ceiling windows providing spectacular views of the Miami Beach coastline and ocean – or the city’s impressive skyline across the water. The suites all include a kitchen area with appliances for those wishing to prepare food, high-speed Internet access, espresso maker, luxurious bath linens and sheets, and a spacious bathroom area with separate shower and deep soaking tub.
The 70,000 square foot spa and integrated medical wellness space is really the highlight of the Carillon Wellness Resort. The hydrotherapy experience includes private men’s and women’s hot and cold areas including a crystal steam room, a Finnish sauna, experiential rain showers, herbal laconium, thermal loungers, Jacuzzi, igloo and reflexology foot bath. A full treatment menu of spa experiences draws inspiration from the sea, while massage therapies harness the power of aromatherapy to encourage deep relaxation. The Carillon Miami promotes holistic wellness via an integrated approach including nutritional counseling, acupuncture, energy healing and health counseling. With a team of licensed healthcare providers, guests can discover the path to health and longevity.
Serving fresh locally sourced cuisine, the resort features four dining venues including Thyme, Carillon Lounge, The Cabana, and the Juice Bar. Their culinary team and nutritionists can even create a personalized diet plan for you during your stay.
Just a short drive away from the activities of South Beach, The Carillon is an ideal place to stay whether you’re looking to squeeze as much activity as possibly into each day or to relax and rejuvenate.
