The Caribbean has the best choices of luxury hotels with amazing spas that can offer their rivals more than a run for their cash – in terms of setting, facilities and the standard of treatments.
1 Four Seasons Resort Nevis
With an immaculate golf course, 3 pools, ten tennis courts and the long white sands of Penney’s Beach, the 196-room Four Seasons Resort Nevis attracts a sporty crowd adding lots of families. Its big spa complex is both palatial and private with spacious open-air relaxation places and a herb garden. The big choice of treatment contains a Caribbean Fusion massage with coconut milk and lemongrass, along with rituals developed with the Themae Spa in Paris.
2 Carlisle Bay
Carlisle Bay, tucked away on its own south-coast beach, sets a quality for Caribbean hotels with its relaxed, stylish interiors and a wonderfully restrained spa. Many Caribbean spas tend to be pretty gaudy or dated, but the Blue spa, like the rest of this hotel, is fabulously restrained and oozes a steely choice. It may be little, but it delivers. There are facials using NaturaBisse super brand and you can also dabble with scrubs, wraps and massages.
3 The BodyHoliday
BodyHoliday close to St Lucia northern tip, the all-inclusive rates contain a fifty minute treatment each day in the big Moorish spa complex, Pilates, plus Yoga, and tai chi sessions, and a host of sports activities. For an all-inclusive, the food is best, and with attractive single rooms and the choice of communal dining, the hotel is famous with solo visitors.
4 Curtain Bluff
Curtain Bluff, set on not one but 2 beaches to the Antigua south, is an all-inclusive luxury hotel with a big range of sporting activities on offer. Rooms are luxurious and contemporary, with plush fabrics and marble bathrooms. They all have a remarkable view of the sea.
