In terms of relaxation, it doesn’t get much better than spending your vacation in the Caribbean, enjoying the luxuries of a top-notch spa resort. Warm ocean breezes, clear blue waves crashing against white sandy beaches, and soothing massages and spa treatments; could you ask for anything more? If you’re looking for a great destination for your next adventure, read on to check out these five top recommendations for a Caribbean spa vacation. (I have not included prices as they are, in many cases, subject to the season prices at the time of your visit.)
The Golden Door Spa, El Conquistador Resort – Puerto Rico
Enter this zen-like sanctuary and leave tension at the door. El Conquistador Resort in Puerto Rico, a Waldorf-Astoria hotel, offers an extensive spa package for their guests. The Golden Door Spa, a 26,000-square foot facility, hosts fitness classes, cardiovascular equipment, a juice bar, a Wellness Center, and a wide array of spa treatments. Guests are invited to enjoy a full day of treatments from massages to pedicures and manicures to facials and saunas while sipping fragrant herbal tea. The Fitness Center is open daily, at $25 per day, but the fee is waived with the purchase of any spa services. Special packages, like the Stay-Zen vacation package, include Nutritional Counseling and Body Composition Analysis from the Golden Door’s trained fitness counselors.

Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa – Bermuda
As their website says, “Poised between the indulgences of the body and the delights of the mind is a place where you can truly emerge – the Ocean Spa. Rejuvenate your body. Restore your soul. Revel in new sensations.” Find all of these benefits on the beautiful beaches of Bermuda with one of Cambridge’s many spa treatments in one of seven categories: Renew, Body & Mind, Face, Hands & Feet, Health, Couples, or Men. For an extra special tranquility, visit the Ocean Spa Pagoda, set in the resort’s Seaview Gardens and receive a couples massage.
The Palmyra: A Solis Resort & Spa – Jamaica
This beautiful Jamaican spa offers luxurious accommodations and six packages to enjoy. Choose the Mr. Golf Package, the Ultimate Spa Package, the Escape for Him & Her, the Girlfriend’s Getaway Package, the Solis Romance Package, or the Something for Everyone Family Package. My favorite, the Ultimate Spa Package offers the chance to rejuvenate, replenish and relax with an all-inclusive four-day spa vacation for two, including a one bedroom deluxe suite, resort fee, two 180-minute spa journeys, a welcome amenity, a facial treatment, and a manicure and pedicure. That about covers it all!
