Seabourn Encore Spa
Visions of coconut palms swaying in the breeze fill my head as I nod off for just a minute while lounging on a very comfortable massage table in a chic treatment room at Seabourn Encore’s stylish spa. As I am softly pummelled with a steaming coconut-scented muslin poultice, I feel totally relaxed while bobbing around on the new super luxury ship on seas between Cairns and Bali. The skilled therapist presses and pushes the poultice relieving a few tired muscles while rich coconut milk is drizzled over my body, softening and moisturising dry skin with vitamins and minerals, followed by a traditional hands-on massage.
It’s the type of indulgence that you hope never ends and leaves you feeling a million dollars. Seabourn Encore, considered the jewel in the crown of the Seabourn stable with 300 luxe verandah suites, has its own spa and wellness program developed by US celebrity doctor and holistic health guru, Andrew Weil. Seminars, classes and daily yoga sessions are available while the program integrates physical, environmental and spiritual wellbeing. Next time it’s a toss-up between the Thousand Flower detox wrap and the amethyst crystal sound bath healing treatment, designed to leave you with a renewed sense of well-being and mindfulness. seabourn.com
