Feeling Blue

Antigua Spa Resort

Few properties truly live up to their name the way Blue Waters Resort & Spa does. Surrounded by sparkling cerulean waters on the northwestern corner of Antigua, the Caribbean seems to follow you everywhere, and that includes the striking spa.

The main area is light and airy, overlooking the spa’s pristine pool with the ocean serving as the backdrop. Fresh breezes flow through the open main room as you sink into cozy chairs and fall into an instant peaceful state. You will feel blissed-out long before you even start your treatment.

The Spa at Blue Waters offers both salon and spa treatments, which feature ila products, a line whose philosophy is all about beauty from the inside out. They are infused with healing herbs grown in Britain, medicinal flowers and even gemstones, and the treatments reflect the same mind and body balance to restore peace and good energy.

The 90-minute Manipura full-body massage erases anxiety by releasing a positive flow of energy to revive you physically and men- tally, tapping into the power of carefully chosen essential oils, such as juniper berry to boost the lymphatic system and push out negative energy from the aura. As if that isn’t healing enough, you can lounge post-treatment and admire the gorgeous surroundings. You’ll be sure to fall into a state of meditation without even trying. What’s more relaxing than that?
