The Pool at the W South Beach

South Beachers have been holding back some pretty guilty smiles on FaceBook and Twitter pages recently as tales of shoveling out from Snowmageddon and Snowpocalypse overwhelm their friend’s updates. We know it’s hard to handle grey days of frost and slush but it’s also hard not to reply, “Hey! I’m tanning right now and your snowbound stories are messing with my Bliss!”

If you have had enough of the wicked winter weather, here are a few easy steps to realigning your chi (or just defrosting your toes) on South Beach.

Blissful Stays – The brand new W South Beach has it’s own Bliss Spa on site and for the month of March, guests can beat the chill when they reserve the WBCOLD special which includes a $50 daily resort credit, 2 cool cocktails and 1 in-room movie. Revitalize yourself at the pool and beach, enjoy a variety of relaxing body treatments and remember how it feels to wear flip flops again. The Standard Spa also offers a March GETWARM promo to give guests a 3rd night free, a complimentary yoga class and a sunset therapeutic mineral mud soak. And speaking of warm…

Free Yoga – Let’s face it, we all warm to free stuff. Free cookies or free drinks are my true weakness but free yoga on South Beach can have a similar defrosting effect when the practice takes place on a warm sandy beach in the company of like-minded calm seekers. The Synergy Center dispatches their best teachers to the sands of 3rd Street off Ocean Drive every day of the week at 7am and again at 5pm to lead 75 minutes of mixed level yoga for anyone who cares to attend. Bring a mat or towel, listen to the seagulls and enjoy the breeze. Bliss! 300 Ocean Drive, South Beach Suggested donation is $5.

Stay near Third Street Beach at the Marriott South Beach, Century and Browns Hotel.

RockStar Tans – Symptoms of Winter Blues often include dry, pasty skin and a general sense of lethargy. If you’ve been spending your days in overheated spaces and your nights in flannel and socks, chances are you need to tan FAST. That’s where RockStar Tans comes to the rescue. Pop in on your first South Beach day and let the friendly technicians spritz you into a golden god or goddess in seconds flat. And speaking of flat, they can relax your hair, buff up your nails and even give you a RockStar makeup application so you’re as cute as a Kardashian in no time. 1247 Washington Avenue, South Beach

RockStar Tans are right near the Penguin Hotel, Haddon Hall Hotel, and Betsy Hotel.
