The Spa at ICON Brickell offers a tranquil escape for those looking for a fully-immersive day in the good life. The Spa at Icon Brickell shares the rich history of The Icon Brickell complex, which is a three-part skyscraper sized complex, as well as the iconic Icon Brickell Plaza. Located just south of the Miami River in the northern part of the Brickell Financial District, Icon Brickell had its construction started in as far back as 2006 and was completed a short two years later in 2008. It has since been a headquarters for a number of businesses, such as The Spa at Icon, a hotel, and residential purposes. The architecture of the complex was completed by the firm Arquitectonica, which specializes in modern architecture builds. Apart from the spa, it includes a pool Olympic in size that overlooks the beautiful Biscayne Bay. The 28,000-square-foot oasis offers a truly unparalleled spa experience. Guests can enjoy the facilities and services, including exotic treatments, a state of the art fitness center, juice bar, sauna/steam room, and even a movie theatre.

There has been a rare sighting…….a South Florida Native…..and his name is Andy! Born and raised in Miami, Andy has been giving visitors recommendations on the best places to see in the Greater Miami area since he sold mangoes and avocados to tourists from his street-side fruit stand as a child. He lives and breaths Miami and the Florida Keys and knows all the hidden gems…….places to sight see that only a native can recommend. If Andy says “check it out” you won’t be disappointed!!
