A ( REALLY FANCY) WATER BABY WHO NEEDS PAMPERING.
CHECK IN To the Sense spa at the Rosewood Bermuda. This newly renovated ultra-luxe hotel is located on the largest private beach on the island and feels like a stately home complete with a croquet lawn and tennis courts. Spa treatments all integrate elements of the local environment and are designed to rejuvenate—consider it a sanctuary away from the stress of deciding which of the four hotel pools you should float in that day.
WE LOVED Match Me If You Can Botanical Therapy. This multitiered restorative and healing body treatment aims to leave you feeling invigorated. How so? By using a combination of hydrotherapy, massage, exfoliation and thalassotherapy, including a mineral-rich mud wrap containing the local match-me-if-you-can plant, known for its antioxidant properties. The highlight is the “tropical rain splash therapy”—or, as we like to call it, the “waterproof mascara is mandatory” treatment—which takes place in the spa’s opulent hydrotherapy shower. Eighteen jets are customized by the therapist to blast different zones of your body with varying pressure and temperature in order to stimulate circulation, which leaves you with a heightened sense of well-being. A gentle massage finishes the two-hour experience.
POST- TREATMENT Take a leisurely stroll over to the Beach Club, an alfresco seafood restaurant overlooking the pink-sand beach, or take up residence on a sun lounger and have the resto send over some Bermuda fritters and a glass of rosé. You’ve earned it.
