5 ELEMIS Spa Island Retreats

24th April 2017

We’ve rounded up a wishlist of five of the most fabulous hotels around the world that offer your favourite ELEMIS treatments in their spas. They also all just happen to be found on beautiful islands too for the ultimate feeling of being far, far away from the madding crowd (and of course, they are all 100% Instagrammable). Whether it’s for your honeymoon or a once in a lifetime trip just for you, add these locations to your bucket list.

 

JA Manafaru, Maldives

Voted one of the top 10 hotels in the world 2017 by TripAdvisor, JA Manafaru is a stunning island beach resort. Situated on a 35-acre private island with a soft, white sandy beach on the northern-most Haa Alif atoll, this hidden tropical paradise houses a total of 84 welcoming villas and suites all with private pools. Among these, the lavish Royal Island Suite is the most sought after and was recently awarded, the Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel Suite at The World Travel Awards.

 

Le Toiny, St Barth’s

Hidden away on the opposite side of the island from the capital, Gustavia, Le Toiny can be found in splendid isolation on La Côte Sauvage. And with a restaurant serving Mediterranean-inspired dishes (many of which contain local seafood), a four-metre bar rustling up rum punch, a cute beach boutique, and of course, that all-important spa – why would you want to go anywhere else? Everything you could want is right here in this beautifully designed resort where each of the 15 villas comes with a private pool.

 

One&Only, Hayman Island

Sadly this gorgeous resort was hit by Cyclone Debbie so cannot accept new reservations until mid-2018 but don’t let that stop you dreaming about and planning a future visit. This private island is the jewel of Australia’s Whitsunday archipelago in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Arrive in style via seaplane, helicopter or yacht and get ready to feel like a glamorous castaway surrounded by azure seas. The ELEMIS face and body treatments on offer will help you drift further away and settle into the slower pace of island life.

 

 

Round Hill, Jamaica

This iconic resort in Montego Bay has always been a firm favourite with honeymooners (including JFK and Jackie O) and it never loses its shine. Enjoy your stay in one of the Ralph Lauren-designed rooms in Pineapple House or splash out on a villa with your own pool and “open” living room. Named as one of the best resort spas in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveller UK, The Spa at Round Hill is located in a beautifully restored 18th century plantation house on 10 lush acres of beachfront lawn. This is old school luxury at its best.

 

Domes Noruz, Crete

On the north coast of Crete, the Mediterranean island where summer comes early, this adults-only resort gets the thumbs up from couples. Right on a private stretch of Agioi Apostoloi beach, the staff make sure that all your needs are catered for. If you’re feeling adventurous after you’ve had your ELEMIS facial and massage at the Soma Spa, head into Chania, Crete’s second city. Stroll around the Old Town and take in the architecture (which has been influenced by Venetian and Ottoman rule) as well as ancient Minoan ruins.
