The 10 Best Tanning Salons in Michigan!

Getting ready for a vacation and want to look good in a swimsuit? Maybe you’ve got a big event coming up like prom or a wedding? If you haven’t had the chance to get some sun, and you need to add a little color to your complexion, Michigan’s great tanning salons provide top-quality services. Here are the 10 best in the state.

1. Chili Peppers Tanning, Multiple locations

With several locations throughout Michigan, Chili Peppers Tanning ranks among Michigan's best as measured by the Detroit A-List voting and several other venues. Home to not only the Versa Spa Pro system—which offers prepping, tanning, moisturizing and drying all in one—but also a slate of coupons and its own app, Chili Peppers Tanning is going all out to deliver value to its sun-hungry customer base.

2. Island Heat Tanning, Kalamazoo, MI

Island Heat Tanning in Kalamazoo is all about the options. Not only does it offer the Versa Spa system, but it also offers Auto Revolution spray tans. At last report, Island Heat was the first to bring such technology to Southwest Michigan, which is something of an achievement in the field. Island Heat goes on from there, however, to offer a slate of spa services like hydrotherapy, teeth whitening and even red-light therapy.

3. Midnite Sun, Multiple locations

With 12 different locations in Michigan since its start in 1993, Midnite Sun goes for the variety above all else. Featuring four separate levels of ultraviolet tanning, spray tanning, and red light therapy options, Midnite Sun will deliver a full string of options as well as plenty of side products to help keep users satisfied. Throw in a clear commitment to the best in customer service, and it's easy to see why Midnite Sun is popular enough to require multiple locations.

4. Sun Tan City, Ann Arbor, MI

Not surprisingly, there are plenty of tanning choices in Ann Arbor, but one that stands out is Sun Tan City. Featuring membership discounts for frequent tanners, Sun Tan City offers plenty of options in both sun and sunless tanning services. It's the pricing that's particularly noteworthy, offering monthly access, yearly access, single visit and even a flat-rate package that expires every two years for the extremely limited tanner, Sun Tan City seeks to cover just about as much waterfront as it can.

5. VIP Tanning, East Lansing, MI

One of East Lansing's biggest names in tanning, VIP Tanning has easily one of the most impressive arrays of tanning technology under one roof. With standard and sunless tanning options available along with teeth whitening, VIP Tanning will help you on your way to looking great!

6. The Sun Shack, Jackson, MI

Considered one of the better options in tanning in Jackson, The Sun Shack is commonly recognized for excellent service and reasonable pricing. Throw in the range of options from sun to sunless tanning and the end result is a complete package that delivers high-end value for its users, no matter what kind of service they're looking into.

7. Tropi Tan, Flint, MI

Tropi Tan might well qualify among the best, not so much for what it offers but for what it refuses to. It points out, with an unexpected clarity, that it closely adheres to schedules for users to avoid excessive UV exposure. That's a great start, but it goes on from there to boast an array of sun and sunless tanning tools covering several levels of intensity to provide users with the best experience in the end.

8. Go Totally Tan, Midland, MI

One of Midland's best tanning salons, options are the focus of the day at Go Totally Tan. Featuring over 200 different varieties of lotion available for ordering, as well as monthly specials, there will be plenty of value on hand here. In perhaps the most unusual twist, Go Totally Tan also boasts a discounted travel vacation club, which means if you want your tanning done under the sun or not at all, you'll be able to get access to that kind of sun, albeit at a much greater cost.

9. Verano Tan, Traverse City, MI

It's not surprising that Traverse City has access to great tanning services, but Verano Tan ranks among the best in the field. Featuring several different types of tanning systems from high pressure to mystic spray, Verano Tan makes it clear that it's not just out to build tans, but relationships with its customer base. It accomplishes this quite well with its array of options as well as its lineup of special prices, offering deals to encourage return business and keep the current customer in the fold.

10. Sunny Daze Tanning, Marquette, MI

Sunny Daze is recently renovated, reports note (it was formerly known as Sunchasers), and features not only spray tanning, but also standard and upgraded beds for users. Throw in massage services, hot stone therapy and essential oils and the end result is a powerful experience from start to finish.
