Luxury Travel To Island Spas

May 31, 2008
The spa experience has continued to gain in popularity for upscale travelers seeking the ultimate in pampering and rejuvenation as an escape from the hectic pace and stresses of today's fast-paced lifestyle. Spas of all types and holistic philosophies abound as a means of countering the stress. Cruise travelers book luxury onboard spa treatments along with cruise tickets well in advance of departure. A vast assortment of mainland spa resorts located at the most scenic or serene spots on every continent offer the best in herbal and oriental treatments. But savvy travelers know that it's possible to combine the best perks of an ocean cruise spa and a spa resort by locating a five-star luxury spa located on one of the many fantastic warm islands scattered across the globe.

An island adventure can bring a visitor to the same ports of call as the cruise ship, with all the beauty and serenity of azure ocean water and waves lapping on the beach. The same classic and traditional treatments known to the ancient philosophers can be found by seeking out the right luxury island spa. Conversely, trendy spas located on an island will provide the latest in fashionable regimens. It's easy to find the ultimate spa experience and combine it with a trip to a romantic island locale.

Think of romantic islands and the islands in the warm waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans immediately come to mind, like Tahiti and Mauritius. In fact, Tahiti has the reputation of being one of the premier luxury spa destinations in the world, due in part to the marvelous selection of Polynesian oils, flowers, and plants that grow on the island. According to the Tahitian tourism bureau, Polynesian spas are "designed by Mother Nature." Anyone seeking the ultimate in natural treatments in a spa experience would be well served by a visit to a luxury spa resort in Tahiti.

On the opposite side of the globe, the Seychelles Islands have a reputation for luxury and romantic settings all their own. Inspired by traditional Eastern philosophies like Ayurveda from India, spas in the Seychelles provide the ultimate in opportunities to relax and renew in a lush tropical setting surrounded by clear azure waters. What more could a visitor ask for? If it's fine dining, luxury accommodations and impeccable service, those come in the package as well. For complete tranquility and seclusion, consider staying at a private island resort.

Not to be forgotten are the islands in the Caribbean Sea that are popular tourist destinations as well and have been for decades. Since a vacation trip to one of the famed Caribbean islands is always in style, five-star luxury resorts with the latest in complete spa facilities abound. Instead of searching for the ideal spa experience, upscale travelers to the Caribbean can select from a vast array of quality choices; the question becomes what island is preferred and then which of its many fine spa resorts.

It's possible to combine the best of everything into one travel package: the best in scenic beaches and oceanfront property, the best cuisine and service, plus the best in spa treatments and services all in one vacation - on a luxury island holiday.
