Wellness Xmas Destination – Aruba
Consistently ranked as one of the most scenic Caribbean islands, Aruba is just 40 kilometres from Venezuela’s northern shores. Aruba is characterised by crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, colourful coral reefs and pleasant climate all year round that has made the island a popular getaway for wellness, recreation, rest and relaxation.
Aruba has a long history as a top international tourist destination and this is evident by the number of world class spas on the island that guests have to choose from. While it is difficult to develop a unanimous list of the best spa and wellness resorts on the island, the following are often toward the top of any such list:
- Mandara Spa located at the Aruba Ocean Club and Marriot Resort: The Mandara Spa has its origins in the world-renowned spa paradise of Bali, Indonesia. As part of efforts to retain its roots while offering a world class service, spa treatments at the Aruba’s Mandara spa are divided into three parts – Balinese treatment, Euro-Asian treatment and Caribbean spa treatment. The setting is serene providing the perfect components for complete wholeness of mind, body and soul.
- Indulgence by the Sea – Whether the Swedish massage does it for you or the mind-soothing hot stone massage is your thing, the Indulgence by the Sea will do it for you. The half-day fill body refreshers, 1-2 hour facials and 1 hour exfoliation scrubs have made this one of the most popular spa chains on Aruba. Each treatment begins with a relaxing foot bath using essential oils.
- Olkeanos Spa – As part of the Renaissance Resort, Olkeanos provides the full range of spa services and facilities that you would expect in a world class spa. Body scrubs, soothing facials, refreshing foot baths and, of course, a great massage.
