Fashion magazine ELLE will open its first spa at Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach in Florida on June 9. The 22,000-square-foot space boasts design and décor inspired by the Mediterranean coastline, including floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the hotel's tropical gardens and ocean, high-coved ceilings and whitewashed walls. Natural stone, water and wooden elements create a calm and chic environment. ELLE Spa visitors can take advantage of four infinity pools, a boutique hair and nail salon, a 24-hour beachfront fitness center, a group exercise studio, a rooftop deck with VIP cabanas, light dining and beverage service, and a retail boutique offering luxury spa products, apparel and beach accessories.

"The Eden Roc is thrilled to partner with ELLE to present a unique spa experience," states Greg Cook, General Manager of the Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach. "In addition to traditional spa services, the ELLE Spa menu offers customized treatments that pamper guests and promote serenity and wellness." A variety of treatments and spa packages are available, from editorially-inspired treatments such as 'Doctors' Orders' and 'Forever 25' to bridal packages and all-day couples VIP suite retreats — replete with oceanfront views, rooftop dining, chocolates and Champagne, shared whirlpool tub, rain shower and cozy beds.

As part of the partnership between ELLE and Eden Roc, guests can book aesthetician and ELLE beauty expert Tammy Fender for facial and personalized skincare. Fender, whose celebrity clients include Julianne Moore, Jessica Alba, Alicia Silverstone and Melania Trump, is renowned for her "haute facials," which join specialized facial-care and reflexology with individually selected organic essential oils, oxygen therapy and refreshing organic juice. Guests can also enjoy the ELLE Spa's signature facial, which Fender developed especially for ELLE Spa.
