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.
