We all deserve a little pampering – and where better to do it than at a divine hotel on a tropical private island? We have carefully selected for you our Top 3 Island Spa Hotels to inspire you to treat yourself to some quality rest and relaxation.
1. Nihi Oka Spa Safari at Nihiwatu, Sumba Island
Deep in the heart of Indonesia, some 400km east of Bali, lies the divine ecozone known as Sumba Island. Nihiwatu Hotel is the highlight of the island, with its non-traditional ‘Spa Safari’ experience situated in a secluded private area overlooking untouched coastline and blue seas. Nihi Oka Spa Safari is an exotic, non-traditional spa that promises excitement and adventure, encouraging guests to connect with nature and be spiritually free.
The journey begins with an open-air land safari vehicle or invigorating 90-minute trek journeying across Sumba’s dramatic west coast to nearby Nihi Oka valley through the rolling hills and cultural villages. Upon arrival, guests have the option to enjoy a bush-cooked meal that includes freshly pressed juices and healthy cuisines. After breakfast, couples can relax in their own private bale with dedicated spa therapists providing any number of spa treatments from full body massage, cooling and rejuvenating wraps, body scrubs to foot reflexology using natural and local ingredients. In between treatments, guests can unwind among the white sands, coconut trees and swim in the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean or infinity freshwater pool.
Naturally this hotel has other qualities on offer – such as luxury villas with private gardens, plunge pools and unobstructed ocean views. Activities on-site include surfing, deep-sea fishing, horse-riding
2. Six Senses Zil Pasyon, Félicité Island
On the private island of Félicité in the Seychelles, the incredible spa at the recently opened Six Senses Zil Pasyon definitely fits the criteria to be a RASK Travel favourite spa. The spa covers an area of 19,000 sqft (1,765 sqm) at the most dramatic part of the island’s rugged topography.
As you would expect from a Six Senses destination, this hotel has only the finest villas to choose from – all of which feature private pools and access to the three private beaches. And why not arrive to your private island paradise in style? RASK Travel can arrange a 30-minute scenic helicopter transfer from Seychelles International Airport to the hotel.
3. Niyama Spa by Per Aquum, Maldives
Winner of the World Luxury Spa Award and 24/7 access, the spa at Niyama by Per Aquum stands out in Maldives. The over-water treatment rooms offer tranquil views of the lagoon and are accompanied by two treatment sanctuaries and a relaxation area. We love how products by Anne Semonin, Gentlemen’s Tonic and Intraceuticals are used by this spa, and how they are even family and child spa treatments available.
