Pretty in the City - After the Gluttony
So this weekend is all about the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, and we’re sure most of the pretty people will be busy pigging out alongside the likes of Emeril, Rachael Ray, and – our fave – Giada De Laurentiis. If you’re visiting and you need a break from the chowing down, you should stop what you’re doing and book yourself a “Feed the Soul” package at Uhma Spa.
Uhma is all about natural and organic methods of pampering, and the décor reflects that perspective. Instead of the currently chic, super-neon-bright-white with green and/or orange accents look that so many salons are sporting, they’ve gone for a soothing effect with their interior design. Think wood grain, low key lighting, natural rock walls (complete with hints of moss), and walls left deliberately bare. The spa specializes in specific solutions for each client, but this special package for foodies includes a Mayan comforting cocoa polish (how apropos) followed by a primal relaxation massage. All this for $155, plus tax and gratuity.
The special spa package will be available from Wednesday 20 to Monday Feburary 25. Call 305-695-0996, or visit www.uhmaspa.com. -- Patrice Yursik
