Renovations & Closures
At night tiny dock lights illuminate the ocean, while other lights shine on some of the 250 Jamaican Tall coconut palms gracing the shoreline, and tiki torches flare by beachside dining tables--the island sparkles like a floating emerald. Before that, the falling sun bathes the island's west side, attracting guests to cushioned seating on Sunset Dock.
The full-service SpaTerre occupies five spaces: the second floor of a thatched-roof building; an open-air, tiled-floor palapa with private outdoor shower for couples massage and yoga classes; a bamboo-lined hut for wet treatments and Vichy showers that includes a private outdoor shower and an outdoor wood-tub spa; an air-conditioned fitness center with exercise equipment, free weights, and a porch furnished with an Indonesian lounging bed and a stationary bicycle; and a hair-and-nail salon.
SpaTerre's massage and treatment rooms feature vaulted thatched ceilings, crystal chandeliers, slate floors, sisal area rugs, wainscoting, bamboo sconces, and soothing Indonesian music. Two rooms include open-air porches with Japanese soaking tubs, showers, and wrought-iron candleholders. In addition to massages, spa services include body wraps and scrubs, facial treatments, and manicures and pedicures.
Free WiFi is provided throughout the resort.
