Spa of the Week: Sense Spa at Rosewood Baha Mar

By Emma Reynolds

Rosewood Baha Mar is the crown jewel hotel of the Bahamas’ Baha Mar area. The new build was completed last summer and is extremely popular for those seeking a quick getaway (after all, it’s a three-hour flight from New York City).

Now is the perfect time to plan a relaxing getaway right before summer to enjoy a quiet and rejuvenating weekend away surrounded by the aqua Bahamian waters.

Sense, A Rosewood Spa is not to be missed. Situated in the heart of the hotel, the spa boasts a neutral color palette, natural furniture and gorgeous natural light that evoke a sense of calm from the moment you step foot. Each treatment uses sustainable local ingredients and techniques are unique to this location so you can ensure you won’t get the same treatment at any other Rosewood resort.

For a truly unique experience, book the Arawak Body Balance inspired by the first inhabitants of the island, the Arawak Indians who migrated from South America. The treatment uses ancient healing practices by the Indians via hot-and-cold compresses that help strengthen the immune system.

First your therapist will use natural exfoliation with a sea sponge to increase blood flow, then a body wrap using Moringa Leaf, found on the island and known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Your masseuse will then use the spa’s own Bahamian Ointment made of rosemary and sage to cleanse and purify the body during the last phase of your treatment, a full-body massage.

Relaxation Room

We also love the Signature Journey, part of the Sense Journeys, which includes a series of treatments. First you’ll experience a 90-minute Sense Signature Massage followed by the 360-degree facial, combining Japanese and French techniques and ingredients. Then you’ll have a hand-and-foot treatment.

Your therapist will use luxury Maison Caulieres and Evidens de Beaute for a resplendent morning or afternoon of relaxation. Other treatments include massages inspired by the ocean, body treatments, luxury facials, add-ons like hand and foot treatments, manicure and pedicures, hair services, waxing, designated kid’s and men’s treatments and couples massages.

If you’re traveling with a large group or seeking the ultimate private experience, the Ocean Front Six-bedroom Villa is exceptional. Located right on the white-sanded Cable Beach, the villa has two separate houses and a modern design with splashes of blue that captures the color of the ocean seen from your windows. The open-air plan encourages the ocean breeze to flow seamlessly through the entire space.

The villa has its own infinity plunge pool, pool deck and outdoor grill with a dining area. The master bedroom comes with its own terrace and lounge areas for utter privacy. Don’t forget to try one of the resort’s delicious cocktails for further relaxation.
