I live in Florida but my girlfriend and I needed an "escape from life" but only had 2 days to enjoy it. I had heard of this hotel prior to my arrival but unfamiliar with it. Like many travellers to Florida, my choices of a getaway would have been South Beach or Ft. Lauderdale Beach. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience in North Miami Beach, just 10 minutes drive from South Beach. Canyon Ranch does not have a rustic feel as its name might suggest. On the contrary, it exudes a feeling of a luxury all-spa resort. From the moment we drove up to the valet we felt like we had left the city and entered a spa resort in the desert. The contemporary open feel made it very welcoming. We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite with city/bay view. The room was very spacious with its long hallway, and open kitchenette and living room area. The bedroom was big enough for 2 queen size beds, large flat screen tv, night table, and sitting chair. The marble bathroom with its sunken tub, vanity area, glass door shower stall with various shower heads and separate water closet just added to the luxury expected of a 5-star hotel. After a thorough walk through of the property and beach area I truely felt like I was on an island miles away from home.
From the moment we entered the lobby all employees made you feel special and were very professional and accommodating. The relaxed desk check-in service was very welcoming. The concierge staff was very knoweledgeable of the area. The food and beverage staff made some very good suggestions. All the food at this hotel is very healthy, which only added to the "getaway" experience as I am not the typical health food junkie. From breakfast to appetizers, healthy mediterranean/european is the theme. A must for all to try is the "Ginger Ale", a specialty of the Lounge, not your typical ginger ale soda.
Now for the amazing spa....Aquavana is an experience that everyone must undergo at least once during their stay. My favorites were the HydroSpa, Crystal Steam Room, and Herbal Laconium. After a 50-minute massage, 2 hours in the Spa, and all the health food I could eat, this was truely a well-deserved getaway. Thank you Canyon Hotel & Spa for making this a most memorable vacation.
