A trip to the spa in the Paradise Coast will have you immersed in culture as well as tranquility.

When bundled in collagen blankets, swathed in sea salts or speckled all over with hot therapy stones, even the most highly strung traveler dissolves into wordless bliss. In Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades, it's especially easy to give in to quiet serenity. From sprawling resort spas to intimate boutique experiences, the area offers countless routes to total relaxation.

Resort to Relaxation

The innovative new Spa by JW at JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort completely changes the way you think about a spa. Within the walls of the newly renovated 24,000-square-foot sanctuary, you’ll work with a spa curator to determine the best spa treatments for you, which are designed based upon four key outcomes: Calm, Renew, Invigorate, and Indulge. There's even an Express Spa space, providing quick yet relaxing treatments for those on the go.

For additional natural options, head to Marco Beach Ocean Resort for their Mudflat Wrap. It uses 100 percent natural marine-based ingredients for a cleansing experience.

Want to be a ministered-to goddess? At LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort's SpaTerre, you'll be revived by way of ritual. The Javanese Royal Treatment opens with a turmeric and jasmine spiked scrub, then segues to a float in a petal-strewn Japanese bath and a yogurt splash. Or opt for the Volcanic Earth Clay Ritual, an elemental detoxifying treatment. SpaTerre's Asiatic approach is detailed, methodic and luxe. Thai rituals are equally seductive, as are massage items like the Tropical Essence Massage and Foundation Rejuvenation.

At The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Spa, the treatment rooms are as gloriously appointed as the suites. Between the Restorative Therapy, using 15 aromatherapy essential oils, and the Time is the Essence customized multi-therapy treatment, you'll have just enough time for a soak in the mineral pool. Or wrap yourself in a robe and unwind on the sundeck. If it's a dose of world-class pampering you're after, an extensive before-treatment consultation with a therapist or the spa concierge bringing fluted champagne should satisfy. Facial treatments and a multitude of hair, nail and waxing services at The Salon also provide indulgent beauty experiences. For a more masculine spa experience, there is an entire menu of services including The Men’s Massage, and the Power Hour for a reawakening of the senses.

The Spa at Naples Bay Resort offers holistic therapies using natural mineral-based lotions and oils. This boutique-style resort spa offers an array of services from spot massages for post-workout relief to an energy massage incorporating Thai stretches. A nod to all things green, the spa also offers organic facials including the Organic Peptide Brightening Facial which uses cutting-edge, algae-based peptides and plant extracts to firm and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rich in amenities, The Spa at Naples Bay Resort grants access to steam rooms, a sauna, aqua lounges and an outdoor adults-only pool.

Decadent Day Spa

The Spa on Fifth saturates spa goers in organic lotions filled with the best homeopathic ingredients and therapies that are faithful to Zen and Feng Shui principles. The spa's aesthetic is a kind of customized harmony with private single or couples treatment rooms. Services, some exclusively for men, focus on relaxation, rejuvenation, revitalization and restoration. Never cut your spa day short, especially with The Spa on Fifth’s affordable add-on treatments.
