50 metres off the northern tip of the main island lies the Spa Retreat. Created to be a destination spa complete with accommodation and restaurant, the spa is a small ‘resort-within-a-resort’ although it’s open to all guests.
A spa aficionado’s paradise, the spa has won numerous awards and comprises nine couple’s treatment rooms. All have private changing rooms and five have private steam, sauna and jet bath. There is also a hair salon, mani-pedi stations, a retail boutique, aromatherapy courtyard, sun deck, spa restaurant and 21 Retreat Water villas.
For children aged from 3 to 16, a separate ice-cream inspired treatment menu is available at the Spa Retreat. Please note: children must be accompanied by a legal guardian and must wear bathing suits during treatments.
The philosophy at the Spa Retreat is holistic wellbeing based on the five elements of earth, air, fire, and water and plant life. By holistic we mean that every aspect of health is addressed, from diet and exercise to body treatments and exercise advice. While there is a fabulous line up of spa treatments, you can also seek nutritional advice, try acupuncture, create a workout regime with a personal trainer, learn yoga and meditation and boost the effectiveness of your efforts by dining on cuisine that’s been created to complement the spa therapies.
All treatments are based on five elements; these elements have been linked with health and healing in traditions from all over the world from prehistoric China to the ancient Greeks, each element being associated with its own characteristic benefits for wellbeing. These ancient theories were the inspiration for the healing philosophy at the Spa Retreat. Air is for people who want to energize; earth is for grounding and rebalancing; fire is detoxifying; water is for relaxation and plant life is for people seeking to boost health and vitality. You’ll find more information about the five elements in the downloadable brochure on this page.
You can choose to follow an element for your entire stay, or mix and match as the mood takes you.
In keeping with the holistic approach, the elements philosophy guides our spa treatments, the menu at the Mandhoo restaurant and also our exercise programmes. Sign up for one, three and seven day health and wellness programmes or simply enjoy a one-off massage or body treatment.

All new formulas are free of parabens, mineral oil, propylene glycol, GMO’s, and ingredients of animal origin. The Terrake range is an original concept, drawn from the forces of the earth: earth, water, plant life and air.
A gorgeous organic range from Hungary, the Éminence tradition began more than 50 years ago in a small village where family knowledge of using herbs, fruits and plants in natural remedies dated back generations. This unique awareness of medicinal plants was enhanced with skin care innovation to produce natural products that are true to both organic enthusiasts and results-oriented clients. Today the ingredients are still hand-picked and hand-mixed in small batches.
