Eden Roc Cap Cana, a luxury resort in the Dominican Republic, has announced the opening of its new 30,000sq ft spa, following a US$2m (£1.5m, €1.7m) renovation.
The spa, called the Solaya Spa & Wellness Centre, is the world's first Natura Bissé branded spa, and offers 12 treatment rooms with indoor and outdoor cabins, a 1200 sq ft anti-gravity yoga space with 12 individual aerial yoga structures and an indoor and outdoor Aqua Garden with
Other facilities include a Swedish sauna, hammam, rainfall showers and jacuzzi, as well as a state-of-the-art gym offering in-house personal training and a wellness bar with its own range of juices and smoothies.
Signature treatments, inspired by the techniques and traditions of the region, will include the Natura Bissé Quirogolf massage, an exclusive body massage performed with golf balls and using movements based on four pillars - relaxing, warming the muscles, therapeutic massage and improving flexibility - that work together synergistically.
Other treatments such as the Islands Scents Massage, the Mango Pineapple Delight Full Body Wrap and the Samunprai Massage will also be on offer, alongside an array of facial treatments including the O2 Relax, which releases pure oxygen molecules into the epidermal layer to re-energise the skin and eliminate toxins, and the Gentleman's Facial which combines steam and a stimulating face massage to combat the signs of ageing.
The spa, which will be headed up by industry veteran Pedro Castillo, has been designed to create a sense of calm for guests and has been built using natural materials, as part of the resort's commitment to the environment, and is flooded with natural light. Lush wall gardens, local fauna and greenery serve as focal points and connect guests to nature during their stay.
