It may be called Miami Spa Month, but it’s actually Miami Spa Month(s).  The discount spa program starts on July 1st and ends August 31st. The idea is simple. Spa prices at Miami’s finest spas are fixed for a set menu of facials, massages and other services. Up from $99 in past years, this year the 50-minute services mostly go for $109, and 80-minute services will run $139. While it may not sound like a deep discount, considering the usual prices at Miami’s fancier spas…it is.
