Renew, Heal and Escape in Jamaica

2015-12-09T13:47:31-05:00 en-US Dec 09, 2015

Don't let the stress of the holidays ruin your Caribbean vacation. Treat yourself or a loved one to a well-deserved sumptuous spa treatment at any one of these luxurious Jamaican spas. You'll feel like a new you as you ring in the New Year.

At the Driftwood Spa at Jakes Hotel Villas & Spa, your treatment begins as you step onto the property. With packages for kids, weddings and honeymoons, a rooftop yoga deck and an extensive list of treatments including a coco-mango scrub and an Irish moss wrap, you’re bound to find the catalyst for renewal at this oasis.

One of Kingston’s newest treasures is the Serendipity Holistic Resort & Spa hidden in the Blue Mountains. This is one of those “see to believe” spots, with natural pools, a waterfall and river flowing through its grounds. Transform as the serenity of this space washes over you, and fall deeper into bliss as you get a massage, take a yoga class or just sit and meditate surrounded by nature. If you’re thinking about planning a retreat or taking a few days to yourself, this is where you need to be. And if you can’t make it up the hill, you can still find your escape in the heart of New Kingston at The Spa in the Spanish Court Hotel.

Along with its reputation of exclusivity and understated luxury, Round Hill Hotel is known for its healing sanctuary. Diverse treatments take place in an 18th-century plantation house whose private outdoor treatment areas offer seaside views. To symbolise the release of your stress and acceptance of the flow of positive energy, you can make a wish whilst casting a gemstone into the Caribbean. The Fern Tree Spa at Half Moon, a RockResort, features seductive suites, bungalows and treatment rooms where you can enjoy your customised services.

The Samsara Cliff Resort & Spa features cliff-side views in Negril. The resort harnesses island’s natural healing energy, particularly with treatments like the couple’s moonlight massage or the sea salt and apricot body scrub. You’ll fall for the vibe and return for the feeling you leave with after releasing toxins and connecting your mind and body.
