Facials and body treatments at The Sanctuary Spa

The Sanctuary offers a mix of all-natural facials and body treatments using local natural indigenous ingredients. Facials, Body wraps and body scrubs are an excellent way of obtaining that smooth skin after a day spent in the water or in the sun.

Choose between our all natural revitalizing Plant Extract facial or the rejuvenating Fruit Extract facial to cleanse, tone and moisturize.

All wraps use the traditional approach where you will be wrapped in banana leaves with your choice of body mask to lock in the moisture and minerals of the treatment. Our body treatments range from natural body scrubs using coffee, carrot, coconut, ginger, oat and mint, to body wraps using papaya, pineapple and coconut. we even have a natural aloe vera and cucumber wrap for sun kissed skin that needs some additional cooling down. All treatments can be combined with healing baths, face masks and foot masks.

Additional treatments at The Sanctuary Spa

Other than our massages, wraps, scrubs, facials and other body treatments, a spa would not be complete without some of the additional treatments that you can choose to have done on their own, but also in conjunction with other spa treatments.

We offer a range of wellness services such as after sun care, foot spa and pedicures, manicures (regular and gel), waxing, threading, ear candling and hair masks. We also have several different healing baths, and an in-house Vichy shower.

Watsu treatments at The Sanctuary Spa

An essential part of Atmosphere’s approach to well being centers around water. Present in the Sanctuary Spa grounds is a heated pool for Watsu treatments (water shiatsu). Surrender to the water as this unique treatment combines elements of massage, yoga, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance. A deeply relaxing experience where our Watsu provider will support and float you over the water’s surface, gliding through rhythmical flowing movements and freeing the body and mind of stress and tension. This is truly an unforgettable experience.

Wellness for children at The Sanctuary Spa

The Sanctuary Spa is child and adolescent friendly. We think it is a great idea for children and young adults to look after themselves and working on the art of therapeutic relaxation. Due to popular demand, we have a Spa menu specifically designed for children aged 8-12. From Funky Fingers and Twinkle Toes (manicures and pedicures) to mini massages and fruity facials, there is a shorter, softer version of most of the popular spa treatments on offer. (please note children have to be accompanied by an adult at all times).
