WRITTEN IN THE STARS

Hosted by The Standard South Beach

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach is less a “hotel” and more a spa with guest rooms set amidst peaceful tropical gardens with a hydrotherapy playground that focuses on health and wellness. Bottom line: if you have to go home, you’ll leave feeling better, calmer and more grounded…

 

Join The Good Witch and resident Astrologer of The Standard, Lori Bell, for a deep look into the cosmos and what the cosmic tide is bringing your way based on your astrological chart. Enjoy some cocktails and bites afterwards at Lido Bayside Grill, plus take home your very own set of Planet Standard astrology reading cards.

Coconut Grove for drinks on the stunning roof terrace.
