Our alternative title for this? Pilates of the Caribbean. Apologies. You'll need some relaxation after that one, and the Caribbean is synonymous with winding down.
Together with our friends at Caribtours – specialists who have been shaping great holidays since 1979 - we have compiled a list of hotels and resorts with relaxation and rejuvenation at their core.
They're dotted throughout the Caribbean region in a variety of settings, from secluded rainforest retreats to stunning beachfront pavilions.
You'll be able to choose from a wide range of beauty therapies, restorative massages and holistic health and wellbeing programmes, with exotic products and reinvigorating treatments from leading spa brands including Givenchy, Six Senses, Aveda, Elemis, Natura Bissé, Pevonia, Africology, Shiseido, Carita and Anantara.
Each resort or hotel will have different types of therapies.
We also have a range of fantastic offers, exclusive to Abbotts Travel, for each of the properties featured. Please contact us for further details.
Petit St Vincent, The Grenadines
At the southern tip of the Grenadines lies a tiny private island. Bursting with character and charm, it dares you to disconnect from the world.
The luxurious cottages are scattered around the island for maximum privacy. Spend a little time here and you’ll soon discover that Petit St Vincent is small, but perfectly formed.
Whether you crave a complete overhaul or a simple treatment, Balinese therapists provide a wide range of options designed to help you unwind. The hillside spa consists of four open-air treatment rooms, nestled into the natural surroundings.
Exclusive Offer: 2 nights free plus complimentary All-Inclusive (for travel between 01 June – 31 August 2016)
Coral Reef Club, Barbados
A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Coral Reef Club is one of the most treasured luxury resorts in the Caribbean. Your hosts, the O’Hara family, have owned the hotel for over 50 years, and guarantee a warm welcome and exceptional service.
A team of skilled therapists perform massage, facials, wraps and scrubs, with unrivalled expertise. Indulge in the aroma and sensation of the signature Lemongrass and Ginger Rub, or invigorate your body with the Caribbean Calm Massage.
Exclusive Offer: 7 nights for the price of 5 (for travel between 16 July – 27 August 2016)
Eden Rock, St Barths
A member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux, Eden Rock was once the hideaway of Greta Garbo, and is set dramatically on its own rocky outcrop overlooking a beautiful coral reef and two white sand beaches. Each of the rooms and suites is individually designed with many delightfully stylish touches introduced by the English owners, David and Jane Matthews.
The result is a very private, romantic resort and a top pick for honeymooners. Eden Rock Spa invites pure relaxation and wellbeing. Enjoy treatments and magical massages using artisanal products, manufactured exclusively on the island; in the privacy of your room or on the sandy beach at Eden Rock, lulled by the sound of lapping waves whilst overlooking the turquoise blue sea.
