CAVIAR SUBLIME FACIAL
at Atarmia Spa
This treatment uses high quality products that have caviar in them, along with other ingredients from the sea such as seaweed and Spirulina, for the ultimate anti-aging treatment to hydrate, lift, firm and smooth the skin. The facial starts with a caviar cleansing cream before the skin is toned with caviar rose mist. An enzyme peel is applied to remove dead skin and while it’s working its magic, a nail oil and satin lotion is applied to your hands. The facial also features the AcuLift massage technique used to ‘lift’ the skin and a firming extract helps this process along. Two masks are then applied – the rejuvenating Spirulina masque and a marine bio matrix masque. While the mask is on your face, two cold beauty globes are massaged into your features. These look like light bulbs with dark blue water in them. Results are immediate, creating a healthy luminescent complexion.

at Banyan Tree Spa
Begin your hydrothermal therapy with a walk through the cascading shower of the Rain Walk. Stroll along the Sole Therapy featuring a pebbled pond with alternating hot and cold water pockets and step into the high-temperature Aroma Steam chambers with unique scents to induce heavy perspiration which in turn promotes body detoxification. Next, surrender your senses to the pitter patter of the Bucket Drench Shower before unwinding in the gently warmed Sauna. Awaken your senses with a cold rub-down at the Ice Igloo to enhance blood circulation and tone the skin. Finally, complete this indulgent experience with a series of rejuvenating Asian-inspired body treats and massage followed by relaxation in the Vitality Pool designed with six therapeutic acupressure body jets.

TURMERIC RESTORATIVE TREATMENT
at Rayana Spa
This treatment begins with a thorough scrubbing, front and back, using a Dijon mustard-coloured gentle turmeric scrub. After a quick rinse off of any remaining product in the shower, it’s back on the table for the turmeric mask. This is the colour of English mustard and much fun can be had when you sit up and see your terrible fake tan for the first time. When you are thoroughly covered you will be wrapped in plastic and then an electric blanket and left to cook for 20 minutes while receiving an astounding head massage. Then it’s back in the shower to get all the mask off (and rejoice that you are still your normal colour) followed by a last spin on the treatment table for a soothing and moisturising massage. This treatment leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth and it smells wonderful – as long as you like the smell of turmeric.
