Se­abourn Encore Spa

Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested - By Sue Wal­lace

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. se­
