Taking the Bahamas by storm
There are two delicious spas we got our hands on this issue and you’ll want to get their hands on you this fall.
The Spa at One & Only has one and only one philosophy and that is to pamper you. That leaves very little to think about when contemplating spa day or no spa day. Let the guys go golf and putter around the bar. Grab your girl and get in here. As you select your treatments and slink out of your spa robe and onto one of the teak massage tables, surrounded by Balinese inspires furnishings. You’ll be infinitely separated from the usual tresses of your day.
Experience the ultimate indulgence in the following ceremonies. Now is your time to relax. Following the treatments, linger in the privacy of your tropical villa garden while enjoying the hydrotherapy bath and waterfall shower, including fresh fruit and a selection of teas.
Maybe, just maybe (not for selfish reasons at all) you can book a spa villa experience. Each villa conveniently features a luxurious hydrotherapy bath and cascading waterfall shower and massage tables can be brought in and out of the villa. See what you did there? You got yourself yet another hands-on experience and shared something wonderful with your guy. This is what we can claim as a win-win situation and therein lies the rub.
Massages are performed in a private villa starting with a Balinese inspired Foot Wash Ritual. Prepare to be pampered while you linger in your private villa garden for 20 minutes and relax in your private hydrotherapy tub and waterfall shower.
Highly recommended as a starter:
Relax, close your eyes and float away to a world of tranquility. Utilized for centuries to strengthen and heal the body, this traditional therapy combines stretching, long stroke, skin rolling and palm-and-thumb pressure techniques. Flowing and graceful, the Balinese Massage relieves tension, improves blood flow, eases stress and encourages harmony.
Recommended for two:
Love 110 minutes
An indulgence just for two, this ritual begins with side by side massages in your private Spa Villa. Embark on a private journey together while you both relax in our generous hydrotherapy bath together containing fresh rose petals. An additional 30 minutes of private time allows you to enjoy herbal tea and fruit in the garden. You may also cater champagne and strawberries or lunch if you desire.
If he insists on a little alone time, guide him towards this:

He will thank you later. At One&Only Spa, every moment of your spa visit has been
carefully choreographed to ensure that with each step, stress
and tension melts away. Enjoy the journey.
Since no one will ever experience Nassau and Paradise Island the way they used to, take the trip over to the new Baha Mar and indulge in the ESPA
ESPA Baha Mar is the first flagship ESPA spa in the Caribbean and the only ESPA in The
Bahamas. Drawing on ESPA’s philosophy of creating bespoke spa experiences that reflect
