Treat Yourself to Some Spa Luxury at Morritt’s

The La Mer Spa at Morritt’s is a haven of peace, calm and relaxation where you can luxuriate as your body is pampered and beautified. Our professional therapists are available daily to recommend the perfect treatment according to your needs or mood.

With so many treatments to choose from – aromatherapy, phytotherapy, fruit therapy, marine therapy, Yon-Ka – we thought it might be useful to outline some of what’s on offer. Follow the links for more information or call us on +1 345 947 8802.

 

For Your Face

Purify and cleanse with a range of treatments for all complexions. You can rehydrate and rebalance your skin if you’ve suffered sun damage or focus on brightening your appearance with light exfoliation and antioxidant nutrients. Our purifying treatments, meanwhile, use essential oils and plant extracts to balance the skin.

Need a little uplift and anti-aging effect? We can help with a combination of botanical steam compresses, active brushing hydro-peel, essential oil stimulation, micro-peel exfoliation, tonifying massage and firming eye, lip, face and neck masks. You’ll look and feel renewed!

Men are welcome, too. Even the most rugged guy can suffer from razor burn or excess sun. Once you’ve experienced a citrus hydro-peel and essential oil spritzing, there’s really no going back!

 

For Your Body

Slimming, smoothing, exfoliating, nourishing and contouring – we have a range of treatments to take your body to another level. Try the algae and seaweed or marine mud body wrap to relax, tone, slim and even reduce swelling or pain. The organic sea salt body scrub combines energizing citrus aromatherapy oils with organic sea salt and coconut oil to uncover the true silkiness of your skin.

Need something deeper? Check out our range of massage options, such as the classic Swedish massage that increases circulation, reduces muscle tension and aids detoxification while relaxing you totally. A luxurious aromatherapy massage is customisable according to your needs and mood – talk to your therapist about the best essential oils for your body.

If you’re a sportsperson, you might need something more therapeutic, such as the deep tissue massage that addresses your acute or chronic pain by focusing on pressure points and circulation.

Also ask your therapist about hot stone massage, private couples massage, pre-natal massage or the combined neck-face-scalp massage that’s perfect for relieving sinus pressure, headaches, jet lag, tired eyes, sleeplessness and fatigue.

 

Your Hands and Feet

Don’t forget the extremities! A reflexology session will not only help reduce stress, increase circulation and relieve tension, but will also leave you utterly relaxed and rejuvenated. You can also enjoy an aromatherapy foot soak to soften calluses and aid dead skin removal. Then have your nails cleaned and shaped, a mini foot massage with oils and lotions, and choose the perfect polish.

For your hands, the classic spa manicure involves an aromatherapy hand soak, nail cleaning, cuticle trimming, nail shaping, a mini hand massage, essential oils and lotion, followed by a polish of your choice. Men are welcome, too (nail polish optional!). Or try the 3-in-1 revitalizing treatment, which includes an aromatherapy soak, gentle exfoliation, thorough botanical massage, restorative mud hand mask and nail clean-up (also available for feet).

 

Mix and Match

Feel free to combine different treatments to make a day of it. You might combine a hand or foot treatment with a whole body treatment or even some waxing – whatever you like. Speak to a therapist to discuss the options.

The La Mer Spa is open daily from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
