‘A rocky rub down… that promotes health and wellbeing!’
Tucked away down on the west coast of Barbados is The Colony Club, one of the island’s most luxurious resorts! I’ve always known that ‘The Colony’ manages to embody the Bajan spirit of laid back luxury so it seemed the perfect spot for a Winter escape (think tropical gardens, crystal blue water and white beaches) What I didn’t realise was that it’s also the ideal setting for a spot of relaxation and healing, and that was obvious from the friendly and nurturing atmosphere that met me on arrival.
It soon becomes obvious that this hotel (part of The Elegant Hotel Group) goes much further than most in its promotion of personal health and wellbeing. I embraced the opportunity to snack on vegetables and herbs from the lush gardens even if I did skip on feeding the Koi fish, practising yoga or having a massage on the beach.
The hotel spa however was too temptingly indulgent to ignore ( it has an array of relaxing spa treatments) so I opted for Hot Stone Therapy and it was the most stress busting rocky rub down I have ever had! My therapist expertly managed to located any areas of stress and tension in the key chakras of my body. What’s more with her healing hands and the strategic placement of volcanic stones, they simply melted away. This is a balancing treatment that is relaxing and invigorating in equal parts and it brought huge benefits to my wellbeing. I left feeling more productive, creative and better equipped to tackle the excitements of my holiday ahead. Thanks Colony Club for two nights of blissful relaxation and a treatment to match!
