Almond Spa opens in Barbados

Almond Resorts are introducing a line of signature spas with nurturing, sense-enhancing, comforting treatments which go beyond the usual Caribbean spa services.The first Almond Spa will be at the Almond Beach Club in Barbados. Here, the Almond Spa, with its elegant, clubby feeling reflects the resort’s unique setting, exclusive yet relaxed.

The Island Waters area, with inviting Vichy showers and intoxicating hydrotherapy baths give guests choices beyond the expected spa services like massages, facials, body, hair and nail treatments.

Signature services special to the Almond Beach Club Spa include Thalasso therapy with sea stone massages and warm sea stone facials, and side-by-side massages for couples.

“While the Almond Spa is designed for our vacationing guests, we also extend the services to local clients,” says Ralph Taylor, Chairman and Managing Director of Almond Resorts.

“The Almond Spas are a unique brand which we have specially designed to fit the Caribbean vacation experience, and to complete the rest and relaxation cycle that people so crave during these stressful times. Our Almond line of in-room products is also created with that same goal in mind and will become an essential part of our resort amenities.”


A relaxation lounge within the Almond Spa offers elixir teas and tonics with mouth-watering spreads of tropical fruits and juices. Spa menus tempt guests with healthy options and include local “good for you” items with native fruits, flowers and plants.

Each of the four Almond Resorts properties will feature an Almond Spa, uniquely designed to suit the resort and its surroundings, offering a selection of Caribbean spa treatments and a full line of spa services. The spas will feature Almond Spas brand products, created with every need of the client in mind.

At the Almond Beach Village, Barbados, where the resort is located on a sugar plantation of a bygone era, the Spa decor will be reminiscent of the old wealthy sugar plantations, with custom-designed stone and iron work. Signature services, special to the Almond Spa here, will include vanilla rum sugar scrubs, and more.

Almond Casuarina Resort, Barbados, will feature a lush, tropical-looking Almond Spa with a coconuts and casuarinas motif. Signature services will be tailored to the spa’s unique setting.

Almond Morgan Bay Beach Resort, the resort chain’s newest property, the Almond Spa here is fully functional and ready to welcome its first clients when the resort opens on November 15, 2005.
