Viceroy Miami Spa: Beyond Your Dreams

Luxury Spas: The Spa at the Viceroy Hotel on Miami's Brickell Avenue is a relaxation haven and a visual feast. Situated at Icon Brickell, in a property that bears the creative mark of Kelly Wearstler, not only does the spa boast a 5,000-square-foot water lounge with five temperature levels and ceiling-to-wall windows, which is open to all guests, but a movie theatre room with oversized furniture evocative of "Alice In Wonderland." This place puts the "dream" in dream vacation.

Designed by Phillippe Starck, the Viceroy's 28,000-square-foot spa is fashioned to bring guests together, whether around an interest in movies, reading books in a floating library space, or in a grooming area featuring circular Mexican tile tables. The hotel's gym, with studios and a cardio theater, is part of the spa. The facility's walls are graced with giant black-and-white photography of 1940s and '50s Americans performing odd or fad exercises (think quirky newsreel footage, frozen). This is where "Mad Men's" Don Draper would have gone in Jackie Gleason's Miami — only it's here in 2K10.

Whether you're a guest, or a sightseeing tourist, it's well worth the trip to Icon Brickell to savor these stylistic treats. See all Luxury Hotels in North America
