A major perk of living in Central Florida is that the beach is only a short drive away. In an hour or less you can be sunning yourself on the east coast. Or you could be getting a massage or facial then lazing by an oceanfront pool (complete with an underwater sound system) thanks to the new monthly spa memberships at Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach.
The new program invites you to take your self-care practice to the luxurious, music-infused Rock Spa & Salon at the hotel’s dreamy oceanfront property. Besides getting a massage or facial each month, additional perks include a day pass for the hotel (including pool access), complimentary childcare and more.
I recently got the chance to experience the spa offerings during a hosted 2-night visit.
SPA MEMBERSHIP DETAILS
The $99/month Gold Record membership includes:
- One 50-minute massage or facial per month
- Resort day pass (including wrist band for accessing the pool and hot tub; hotel occupancy permitting)
- Complimentary childcare (up to 2 hours) at Roxity Youth Club (ages 5-15)
- Unlimited access to spa lounge and steam room
- 20% off all additional spa services
- 10% off spa retail items
- VIP backstage passes to Rock Sparties
- Exclusive offers for dining, events, and accommodations
- Complimentary valet parking the day of spa service (for spa guests not staying overnight)
Or, upgrade to the $149/month Platinum Record Membership. This option includes an 80-minute massage or facial instead plus unlimited monthly access to the Body Rock gym.
The monthly spa membership includes your choice of facial or massage from the spa menu, including the exclusive Rhythm & Motion offerings.
Music lovers will delight at the music memorabilia (there are even guided memorabilia tours of the hotel offered upon request), thoughtful playlists and various homages to music throughout the property. The spa is no exception – signature Rhythm & Motion offerings uniquely integrate music in a way that only the Hard Rock can deliver.
My curiosity led me to test out the signature Synchronicity massage combining a relaxing, rhythmic massage with a special soundtrack. Taking place in a special treatment room (decked out with a guitar of course), you start by picking one of three custom soundtrack options for your treatment. I chose “Train to the Sea” in which ocean sounds compliment tropical remixes of recognizable songs. Remixed versions of The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” and Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” were just a few of the tunes played during my treatment – way cooler than typical spa music. The room features a speaker positioned above the massage table to envelop you in sound while bass comes through the massage table itself. It’s just as interesting and wonderful as it sounds.
The signature Face the Music facial is also performed in this special treatment room. The 50 or 80-minute facial combines the benefits of sound vibration with organic products that will hydrate and restore skin.
Other massage offerings include the Classic Pop, Heavy Metal Deep Tissue, In Sync (customizable) and Rock On (hot stones). Facials include the Iron Man (for the guys) and Drenched (a classic facial customized to your skin). Fancy robes, slippers and access to the spa lounge are included.
Additional treatments like manicures, pedicures and more are also available.
CONTINUE THE DAY
Spa membership includes a day pass to the resort, including a wristband for accessing the hotel’s oceanfront pool (based on hotel occupancy). Naturally, the pool is decked out with an underwater sound system. Relax in a lounge chair while soaking up the ocean views and perhaps sipping on a cocktail – waiters regularly come by to take drink orders poolside.
The hotel also has an onsite restaurant, Sessions, serving breakfast (think hearty avocado toast and decadent Belgian waffles), lunch and dinner (the burger is delicious). Close the night out with live music or one of the regular concerts. The Rock the Beach tribute band concert series features a free outdoor performance every Friday in March and April beginning at 8pm on the Wave Terrace.
