In keeping with its emphasis on the individual, our clients will be treated, trained and pampered in the privacy of their own discreet and secluded villa, set beneath the lush Barbadian rainforest canopy within the 15 acre walled hotel estate.

Spa treatments and programmes have been designed specifically to harmonise the physical and the spiritual. Programmes will focus the mind and body to re-energise and de-stress. Teaching fitness, exercise, relaxation, motivation and concentration techniques in tandem with a unique range of rejuvinating treatments, the Spa is already eagerly anticipated by devotees of this internationally acclaimed luxury hotel.
