A Luxury Spa Experience at PURE Spa in Fort Lauderdale

A Luxury Spa Experience at PURE Spa in Fort Lauderdale

Lucky for me in Fort Lauderdale, almost every day feels like summer! I am all about having a healthy, summer glow but constant sun can really take a toll on your skin. No matter where you live, I think it’s important to take a proactive approach in caring for your skin to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, sun spots, dry skin, and so much more. That is why I decided to indulge in a luxury spa treatment at the gorgeous PURE Spa. 

This Scandinavian-inspired spa is located inside the Pelican Grand Beach Resort on their 11th floor rooftop. This five-star resort is one of the only true beachfront boutique resorts on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

The intimate and luxurious PURE Spa sits high above the beach with overwhelmingly beautiful views of the water. PURE Spa is unique and fully embraces their location by taking in the sun’s light, energy, and Vitamin D with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. 

From the relaxation lounge, to the treatment rooms and even the locker room, I was treated to these stunning views. PURE Spa’s mantra, “You Are Beautiful”, is just as welcoming as these light and airy rooms. I had an assortment of signature treatments to choose from, and I was happy to learn that no two treatments are alike as the therapists and guests work together to personalize your service, whether it be a massage, body scrub, or facial. I was most drawn to their Summer Skin Survival Treatments which include a Vitamin C Boosting Facial, PURE You Facial, and a Hydra Facial. 

Before my facial, I was treated in the relaxation lounge to a nice glass of champagne, a glass of fruit water and a fresh cup of berries.

I went with the Hydra Facial because it has an incredible 4 in 1 technology that includes Vortex-Cleansing, HydroPeel Exfoliation, Vortex Extraction and Vortex Fusion. In other words, this rejuvenates your skin and immediately reduces the look of lines, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation and more.

My facial was an hour long. After 60 minutes of pure bliss, my skin felt incredible. Almost right after the treatment, I was already telling myself that I must to do this more often in order to help my skin and feel amazing inside and out.

After my facial, I wasn’t ready to leave quite yet. I knew I had more to see in this nearly 3,000 sq. ft. environmentally friendly spa. I was immediately drawn to the relaxation room with it’s Instagrammable hanging chairs. Sitting here, I had the absolute best view of the water and was able to look out and truly appreciate my beautiful city. I also wandered outside to enjoy PURE Spa’s cozy rooftop where guests can also indulge in two outdoor spa cabanas. 

Not only did I leave with my skin feeling happy and healthy, but I now have a deep appreciation for skincare and overall wellness. Thanks to the natural light, expert treatments, and stunning surroundings, I was able to truly relax at PURE Spa and cannot wait to visit again.

  1. I love the looks of the Pelican Grand Hotel. It seems like a beautiful property. The Pure Spa seems so high tech. They do a lot more than body work there. Having a clean and relaxing environment is essential for a quality spa day. It looks like they do so much more at PURE Spa. They did a fabulous job on your intake and planning a treatment that was specially crafted for your needs. That is truly a mark of a five-star establishment. The views are five-star as well.
