The lowdown: If you haven’t scoped out the crystal steam room at ESPA at Acqualina, then you’re missing out on some good vibrations. Touted for their healing powers, a colossal crystal slab centers the spa’s steam room allowing guests to get their aura aligned — and break a laborious sweat. The awaiting ice fountain (think Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine on steroids) is just the thing to cool down and tighten those open pores.

The 'hood: Nuzzled inside the chichi Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, the spa is smack-dab on the ocean with eye-popping views to boot.

The vibe: Shimmery mosaics, twinkle light ceilings and subtle Asian accents ooze a come-take-me-away ambience. The sunny relaxation room, Finnish sauna, experience shower, pool, Jacuzzi, Roman waterfall and sun deck will have you opening up and saying, “ESPA-aaaaaah” in no time.

The highlights: Indulge in the newest addition to menu: the ESPA Active Peel Facial ($150 for 50 minutes). The treatment smoothes, softens and evens skin tone. You glow, girls.

The sweet deal: Mention this article and receive a complimentary Bento Box meal ($35 value) served on the ESPA spa terrace overlooking the piercing blue Atlantic Ocean when you book an 80-minute treatment of your choice. Additionally guests will receive complimentary valet parking, full use of spa facility and pool and a refreshing smoothie upon check-in. This offer is good Monday through Thursday, subject to availability and cannot be combined with other offers and expires February 28, 2011.
