There's no question a stay at Cheeca Lodge & Spa is relaxing enough as it is, with soothing pink sunsets and sultry balcony bathtubs and cocktails by the sea. For a little extra comfort though, you have to check out The Spa at Cheeca Lodge.
The Hot Lava Shell Massage on the menu was the most intriguing to me. They use smooth, polished tiger clam shells that are hollow inside, then fill with a mix of minerals, algae and salt water. When combined, there's a chemical reaction that creates heat... and the heat makes the treatment amazing. Relaxing, soothing and downright worth it.
If you're heading to Islamorada, a post-fishing visit to the Cheeca spa is a must!
