The stately Villa Nova, one of the Caribbean’s last remaining Great Plantation Houses reveals plans for a brand new luxury spa.  Opening on 7th June 2004, the TÉ Spa will refresh mind, body and soul.

He has devised TÉ Spa in partnership with Villa Nova which will see the beginning of a new era in health, fitness and wellbeing, as Cengiz brings his unique philosophy of physical and mental fitness to the Caribbean.

Elemis will be devising and introducing an exclusive signature treatment and details will be announced during 2004. The TÉ Spa will also offer Yoga, Pilates, Kickboxing, Weight Loss, Detox and Boot Camp retreats, for guests interested in specific results.


Lynne Pemberton, Proprietor of Villa Nova, comments: “The concept and design behind the TÉ Spa shows our serious, ongoing commitment to the wellbeing of our guests.  Villa Nova is a wonderful setting for total relaxation and reflection, and the TÉ Spa will enable our guests to enjoy a programme of life changing and luxurious treatments, alongside the best fitness equipment.”

Villa Nova has 27 sumptuous guest rooms and suites, all individually designed by internationally acclaimed designer Nina Campbell.  Set in 15 acres of landscaped gardens and tropical rainforest, this luxury boutique hotel is set high above the island’s East Coast and has panoramic views across the sugar cane fields.  Villa Nova, the former home of British Prime Minister, Sir Anthony Eden, is a walled estate and affords guests privacy and relaxation, the perfect complement to the new spa.
