If you've ever wondered what to do with your time at Miami International Airport while you wait through a layover or for your delayed flight, we have your answer. Exhale Spa has opened up an outpost at the airport inside The Centurion Lounge, a brand new retreat brought to you by American Express, where you can get manis and massages at the north terminal in Concourse D.
The lounge and Exhale's treatments are complimentary for American Express Platinum Card and Centurion members and up to two guests or immediate family. Other American Express cardholders will have to pay $50 per one-day pass, but when you consider that Exhale's massage treatments start at $95 and don't include complimentary bites from Michelle Bernstein and cocktails from revered mixologist Jim Meehan, then the price of this little airport pastime lounge for a day doesn't seem so bad.
This is Exhale's second airport outpost in the country (the other is in Dallas). Besides spa treatments, food, and cocktails, the 8,000 square foot Centurion Lounge has meeting rooms, cozy nooks where you can settle into a nice read while you wait, high-speed wifi, and a sound-proof kid's area. The only caveat? You might get so cozy you'll be tempted to miss your flight, in which case another massage is always an option.
