Six Senses Spa opens in Dominican

Five miles of turquoise water and white sand beach highlight the extraordinary natural beauty of PuntaCana Resort & Club. Conceived, constructed and operated with a strong ecological awareness, the facilities provide guests with privacy, security and warm Dominican hospitality in a simple, yet elegant ambience.

Central to the PuntaCana experience is the Six Senses Spa. Occupying 1,800 square metres in the newly developed club house area and close to the beach, the spa offers ten treatment areas and is surrounded with reflecting ponds. The eight indoor rooms comprise Thai massage for individuals or couples, a beauty room, a single treatment room and five treatment rooms ideal for couples. Most of the indoor rooms provide spectacular views of the ocean. Each treatments room has its own changing section, relaxation area and steam room.

Two outdoor treatment suites are set right on the beach, surrounded by tropical plantings, a private Yin-Yang bath and a herb garden which provides fresh herbs used in the Juice Bar.

The interior of the spa is decorated with an Asian touch, with large metal gongs incorporated into the local architectural style, sea grape leaves in the indoor relaxation area, and comfortable cushioned day beds.

The Six Senses Spa at PuntaCana presents a range of innovative and comprehensive couples and golfing packages, as well as Six Senses Signature treatments and Asian therapies which include Thai, Vietnamese and Shiatsu - all administered under the expert care of trained therapists. As part of the spa’s holistic focus, beauty and pampering treatments, yoga, pilates, reiki and meditation are also offered. There are indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, plus hydrotherapy.

“We have assembled a truly international spa team for PuntaCana”, said Spa Manager - Chunxia Gao, “they include skilled therapists from Thailand, Vietnam, Sweden and England, who are also on hand to advise on use of the exclusive products available from the Spa Shop”. The Spa Shop also offers items such as organic loofah soap sets, essential oils, candles and spa music. Gift certificates are also available.

The 400-room PuntaCana Resort & Club is located on a three-mile stretch of palm-shaded beaches with accommodations that include superior rooms, junior suites, suites and Beach and Nature Casitas. Tortuga Bay, an exclusive private villa community which opened in December 2005, is also on the property. The 15 villas, with a total of 50 rooms, offer uncompromised privacy, 400 meters of private white sandy beach and personal Villa Managers to provide five-star relaxing environment.

The first of three golf courses - La Cana, designed by PB Dye - features breathtaking views of the Caribbean. Resort guests and members can enjoy championship golf on this course, with a second by Tom Fazio scheduled to open in 2008. Offshore reefs are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving, while a full-service marina, a tennis complex with clay-caliche courts, a children’s petting zoo, and a nature preserve with tropical foliage and crystal clear springs offer a host of leisure activities.
