Inspired by The Bahamas’ natural resources, vibrant culture and wellness traditions, Sense Spa at Rosewood Baha Mar offers interesting, invigorating and unique spa experiences for guests.
Many of the spa’s treatments are derived from The Bahamas’ centuries-old healing remedies, which stem from the belief that native plants, roots and leaves have health benefits. For hundreds of years, Bahamians have been making tea from the plants in their own backyards and drinking it for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. The tradition, referred to as ‘bush medicine’, is still revered today. Sense Spa’s Lost Remedies treatments combine this traditional practice with modern products
Among the treatments is Arawak Body-Balance, which draws from the ancient healing practices of the Arawak, who were some of the first inhabitants of the islands. It utilises hot and cold compresses to help strengthen the immune system. Beginning with a natural exfoliation using a sea sponge to help increase blood flow, the treatment continues with a moringa leaf body wrap before ending with a full-body massage using rosemary and sage ointment.
Another popular choice in the Sense Spa is Lucayan Relief. This signature Lost Remedy introduces guests to the ancient practice of Bahamian herbal healing. Guests soak their feet in the ancient lignum vitae, or ‘tree of life’, which is the Bahamas’ national tree and is revered for its medicinal properties. This treatment, derived from an ancient Bahamian healing remedy, helps improve lower-body circulation, and relieves swelling and joint pain.
Then there’s the Gullah Geechee Tea Tox, which begins by sipping a local Bahamian tea made from the neem tree. This warms and detoxifies the body. The remedy continues with a hot massage using neem oil, which contains powerful detoxifying properties, and a full-body envelopment to warm the body from the outside in.
Additionally, Sense Spa offers salon treatments for guests to freshen up before a night out. These include unique manicure and pedicure treatments, waxing and hair services.
