Food options are no different than what you’d find at any other upscale hotel open to the public, and the menu choices are intended to suit a wide range of tastes, not help people lose weight.
Âme Spa & Wellness Collective Pros
- Scenic Location Near the Atlantic Ocean – Âme Spa & Wellness Collective pairs campers with kids their own age, thus building a support system they can relate to. It teaches kids that they can still eat the things they like but in moderation and while staying active.
- Modern, Luxurious Features – According to online reviews, the spa does a good job of catering to its guests and offers cutting-edge amenities that include a pink Himalayan salt room.
- Plenty of Options to Choose From – The spa offers 65 different services.
Âme Spa & Wellness Collective Cons
- It Can Be Expensive – A la carte spa services can add up in price, especially considering neither they nor food is included in the room rate.
- It Takes a Bit of Research to Customize Your Stay – Choosing from 65 spa services can be overwhelming for people who don’t quite know what they want or need.
- Resident Resort is Under Construction – The spa operates at The Turnberry Isle Miami, which is being converted to a JW Marriott through fall of 2018. Much of the resort is inaccessible, and construction noise can affect the quality of a guest’s rest and relaxation.
