Review: The Fontainebleau Miami Beach Gym and Spa

The Fontainebleau Hotel and Resort in Miami Beach features a 5-star gym and spa that makes the trip to South Beach worth your while.

Two years ago the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel re-emerged as the place to be in South Beach after an extensive renovation updated, and upgraded, the property. In addition to giving a facelift to the accommodations and adding a wide variety of restaurant and lounges, a 5-star gym and spa was created.

The Fontainebleau Gym and the Lapis Spa are housed in a beautiful sea-blue glass building that stands separate from the main hotel and overlooks the hotel property and beach. The gym features a full complement of state-of-the-art cardiovascular and weight-training equipment and is staffed with attentive personal trainers.


All of the cardiovascular equipment features video screens and allows you to attach your iPod, as well. The gym is clean and well laid-out and is a great place to workout. The cardio equipment is situated to give you an awesome view of the pool and the beach, which adds to the pleasurable atmosphere of the Fontainebleau gym.

The gym also features the Trazer 2 system, which is billed as, “A 3-D interactive fitness experience.” Think of a beefed-up version of the Wii. The Trazer system is not for the faint of heart; it’s agility and plyometrics programs will provide a challenge for the fittest of fitness buffs.

The Lapis Spa is a big slice of heaven on South Beach. Pleasing to the senses, as well as to the body, the Lapis Spa offers men and women an unparalleled experience in relaxation. There are men and women’s sides to the spa and a great unisex area that features a huge hot tub and a phenomenal Rain Shower shower room that has to be experienced to believe.

When you take into consideration the fantastic accommodations, fine restaurants, and exciting night-life it’s hard to think of a better South Beach destination than the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.
