Tucked away in the corner of the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa, SiSpa is a cozy little escape from your hectic everyday activities. It houses several treatments suites, a locker room and a relaxation room that overlooks the beach.

It’s not a grandiose, extravagant spa, but that’s exactly what gives it its charm. Hidden down a hallway on the fourth floor, the spa gives off a type of magical, mystical feeling – like you’ve suddenly stumbled into an unknown world in the back of your closet.

As the full-time web editor of bocamag.com, a freelance journalist and social media manager, volunteer, girlfriend, aunt, sister and daughter with the (as my boyfriend put it) desire to do absolutely everything, my mind is constantly moving past its speed limit.

The moment I was greeted by the warm, friendly face at the reception desk, I felt an immediate sense of relief, like she had given me permission to tuck those duties away for a couple of hours and disconnect from the constant emails, calls, text messages, tweets, comments, likes, follows – you catch my drift.

The spa offers everything from traditional services like waxing and manicures, to signature therapies like the Si Hydrafacial, which cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, hydrates, resurfaces and protects your skin (yep, a facial can do all that in as little as 20 minutes).

To learn more about their services and prices, visit marriot.com/fllpm or call 954/944-9528. SiSpa is located at 1200 N. Ocean Blvd., Pompano Beach.
