More a spa with guest rooms than a traditional hotel, The Standard Spa in Miami Beach is an excellent location for out-of-towners — but it also makes for a perfect staycation or “day away” for locals, currently boasting Daniel Herget as Executive Chef at its Lido Bayside Grill. Herget’s signature style favors the bold dimensions of flavor found in Caribbean and Latin American cuisines. His light, vibrant approach often plays with refreshing citrus, pickling and fermentation. The chef’s inventive dishes are made with local, seasonal produce and designed with the restaurant’s stunning waterside views in mind. On the spa side, The Standard is rolling out CBD Spa Services highlighted by the Royal Chill to help take the edge off. It starts with a refreshing foot bath and cooling scrub, followed by a grounding foot massage using Lord Jones High CBD Pain & Wellness Formula. Using a variety of techniques, including balancing reflexology points, the therapist takes away pesky aches so clients leave ready for their next adventure;
