Spas: Escape to a Sanctuary
A sanctuary is a sacred place, a safe haven; a place to rest and find solitude, to escape from the cares of the world. Simply being in the embrace of the intoxicating British Virgin Islands is enough to soothe the mind, calm the spirit and relax the body.
Here, the rhythmic flows of the ocean waves caressing the islands’ charming shores take you to a blissful place. Seek and you’ll find luxurious first-rate spas snuggled in secluded hideaways or unexpectedly tucked amidst town shops. These spas combine ancient traditions of natural healing with local herbs and fruits to refresh, rejuvenate and holistically bring you into total wellness.
Whether you just want a little pampering or a complete overhaul, there’s a spa service suited to your needs. BVI spas specialise in providing the best in personalised service. Select from a wide assortment of therapeutic treatments that are tailored to stimulate each of your senses. Choose an open-air massage right on the beach at Myett’s Sea Spa or Surfsong Villa Resort, where you’ll fall asleep with the gentle sea breeze as your knots are kneaded away.
If you prefer to retreat to the privacy of your hotel room, you can request a personal masseuse from Solé Day Spa. Treatments utilise home-grown aloe vera plant, neem leaf and sea salt, known worldwide for having special antioxidants and enzymes that renew and soften the skin.
You’ll find absolute bliss at Sense in Virgin Gorda. In addition to the standard spa services, Sense offers a unique British Virgin Islands’ blend of indulgent treatments like the Virgin Gorda Goat Milk & Honey Wrap, the Salt Island Scrub and the Sugar Mill Pineapple Glow. Opened 10 years ago as part of the first-rate Rosewood Little Dix Bay, Sense sits fortress-like on top of the dramatic cliff overlooking the resort offering breathtaking ocean views. The splendour of the surrounding environment captures the essence of relaxation and renewal at this deluxe spa getaway.
Also found in Virgin Gorda, The Spa at the picturesque Leverick Bay Resort & Marina has some of the world’s most skilled professionals in massage, yoga and aesthetics.
For complete exclusivity, The Peter Island Resort & Spa on its own private island is the ultimate sanctuary specialising in Ayurveda-inspired techniques, including de-stressing treatments that can put you in a state of deep relaxation.
During your vacation, make time to nurture your body, mind and spirit through a healing ritual at one of the BVI’s delightful spas. These sanctuaries are guaranteed to leave you refreshed.
