Exhale’s inclusion in the space ​elevates the experience as guests are treated t​o ​complementary manicures​, 15-minute massages, acupuncture​, ​hand massages​, ​head rubs and more.​ For a girl on the go, this is the perfect place to grab a quick mani, mini-massage and a cocktail before flights.

Food the Foodies out there, you’ll be happy to know that Miami​’s​ ​own ​Chef Michelle Bernstein ​is also in as the head curator of the lounges restaurant. Bernstein said that food served will be inspired by​ dishes at her own Miami restaurants, so you can expect a heavy infusion of her signature Miami flavor.
