Sol’s The Palmyra Resort & Spa is set to unveil the launch of its one-of-a-kind ESPA Spa in June 2009. The stand-alone 30,000 square-foot indoor and outdoor two-story spa, a destination unto itself, is the first ESPA in the area and promises to be the Caribbean’s best, setting a new standard for the region. Founded by luxury spa authority Susan Harmsworth, ESPA is lauded throughout the world for its holistic, therapeutic approach to achieving long-lasting health benefits that go beyond mere pampering. At Sol’s The Palmyra Resort & Spa, ESPA features luxurious heat experiences, the Hibiscus Tea Lounge, relaxation rooms, 14 treatment rooms, three private suites, a fitness center, finishing studio, hair salon and two outdoor pools with relaxation areas.
Inspired by aromatherapy, phytotherapy and the thalassotherapy traditions of European, Asian and Ayurvedic philosophies and native Jamaican ingredients, ESPA has created signature journeys that authentically resonate with the Caribbean Island. The spa also provides an array of women’s and men’s body and facial treatments and massages. Additional indigenous touches are felt and seen throughout, including the welcome refreshment, the locally-crafted beaded wristbands provided to guests upon check-in, as well as the staff uniforms that reveal African symbols that represent the spa’s different states of being.
