Ocean Club, Paradise Island Rated a Best Spa on Earth by Elle Magazine, UK

The Ocean Club Spa by MANDARA located on Paradise Island, Bahamas was rated as one of “The Best Spas on Earth” by ELLE Magazine in the May 2002 United Kingdom issue. The serene setting, lush flora and Bahamian hospitality are ingredients to satisfy one`s craving for the ultimate luxurious and relaxing spa experience. The writers of ELLE spent the day delighting in the ultimate spa experience.

“Cross a Balinese temple with Bahamian colonial elegance and you have the deluxe Ocean Club Spa in the Bahamas,” (ELLE, 220). The Ocean Club Spa features eight villa suites, each with its own private lush garden. Ocean Club`s spa suites are the largest and most beautifully appointed in the Caribbean, each with its own open-air garden whirlpool bath, and a private garden-view air-conditioned pavilion designed so guests may enjoy all of their facial, body and beauty treatments in the same suite.

Signature treatments include the Ocean Club Caribbean Scrub, applied to the body with volcanic pumice and ground Caribbean coffee, and the Ocean Club Massage, performed by two professional therapists in harmonious rhythm. The writers of ELLE comments after experiencing the invigorating treatments and relaxing in the “perfectly manicured gardens, water fountain and a super-sized Oriental day bed with a huge fan to cool you down, Cleopatra-style,” that “if our beach loungers hadn`t been calling, we might never have moved,” (ELLE, 220).

The Ocean Club Spa by MANDARA offers a variety of health promoting treatments. The spa is pleased to present Elemis lifestyle products and treatments. Environmentally and culturally aware, Elemis use organically grown petals and plants in their products. Originally, Elemis harvested plants from European farms and still today our Lavender is picked from the mountainous regions in France. However, Elemis have diversified and created a cultural range. Indian Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Vanilla are sourced from the exotic Indonesian Spice Islands. In these areas, Elemis honor and respect the traditions and rituals that are at the forefront of the culture. Elemis` extensive line of products is available for purchase and used exquisitely in Ocean Club`s face and body treatments.

The Ocean Club Spa by MANDARA is open exclusively to guests of the Ocean Club, residents of the Ocean Club Estates, members of the Ocean Club Golf Course and guests of the Atlantis Resort. Ocean Club welcomes visitors from around the world, with the United Kingdom as the number one international market for the Bahamas.
