Pampering Jamaica holidays as island is declared leading spa destination

Home to some of the world's most famous and luxurious spas, Jamaica lures visitors with its wealth of deluxe spa experiences and facilities. With a range of world class resorts boasting a range of exclusive spas, it’s no surprise to see visitors return time and time again and again to pampering Jamaica holidays . As published by the Breaking Travel News website, they take a look at some of Jamaica's latest and most impressive spa developments.

First up we have the Goldeneye resort, which after its latest refurbishment, has introduced a new spa offering enabling guests to enjoy invigorating spa treatments in the open air. The newly refurbished FieldSpa, beautifully hidden away in a cottage-like location right by Goldeneye’s lagoon edge, is unique in the sense that it has no borders. Here guests can indulge in therapeutic massages, skin brightening facials, salt scrubs and herbal wraps, all performed in breezy and light open air tents. The spa also offers some other outstanding services including Moon Yoga, Coral Restoration, Jamaican Dance, Stargazing and the Jamaican Olympic Triathlete Iona Wynter, an activity designed for fitness fanatics offering amazing experiences such as Bay Rafting, Stretch & Snorkel classes and Jet Ski Leg & Ab workouts.

Next up, we have the second runner up of our list of spa-licious Jamaica hotels, the luxury Half Moon a resort, currently nominated for the title of Jamaica’s Leading Spa Resort by the World Travel Awards. Offering truly indulgent Jamaica holidays with superb spa facilities, the Half Moon has converted its signature villa, Fern Tree House, into the brand new, completely re-designed Fern Tree, A RockResorts Spa®; a magnificent 68,000-square-foot sanctuary for the mind and body with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms. Drawing from the local landscape and centuries-old healing traditions as inspiration, the spa melds modern-day techniques with Jamaica’s ancient healing remedies of native herbs, fruits and botanicals. Fern Tree also houses a relaxation lounge, yoga pavilion, hydrotherapy swimming pool, sculpture garden and several water features.

Part of the Fern Tree complex, Half Moon also offers six signature beachfront spa suites, each featuring added amenities that provide for in-room treatments, such as yoga, thus further incorporating Fern Tree’s wellness experience into guests’ rooms. The Half Moon resort also has an on-site Spa Elder, a veteran expert on holistic treatments to guide and advise clients on a path to wellness during their holidays to Jamaica, offering them personalised programmes and regimes fully customised to tend to each individual's specific needs.

And last but certainly not least, we have the internationally acclaimed Rockhouse Hotel Spa, now in its fifth year running. The luxury beach hotel and resort has recently rolled out its Caribbean Essentials products. In addition to its relaxing, organic ambience, the Spa Pavilion – which is an organic, temple-like structure - has been praised for its unique and holistic treatment menu, which was developed exclusively for the hotel with Jamaican products by spa guru Linda Hall.

In the same way the Rockhouse restaurant fuses the spices and foods that reflect the diverse history and people of Jamaica, the Spa fuses all the natural goodness and beauty of Jamaica, restoring peace and harmony to our guests”. - Linda herself explains.

Every product used at this resort's spa facilities are made locally using only natural ingredients indigenous to the Caribbean, remaining true to the region's authenticity by creating genuine experiences for truly original Caribbean holidays. Using Caribbean Essentials is in keeping with the Rockhouse philosophy of fusing all the natural goodness and beauty of the Caribbean to restore peace and harmony to our guests.

Other amazing Jamaica hotels with equally amazing spa facilities for truly unforgettable experiences during holidays in Jamaica include the Sandals Grande Riviera Red Lane Spa, which just received an upgrade, the Bamboo Eco Resort, due to open in 3 years' time by 2015, and the Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall with its signature treatments including the famous Shell Massage (in which the body is completely covered by 100% natural Tiger Clam sea shels filled with algae and dry kelp) and the exfoliating Sugar Cane Body Scrub.
