On the cliff’s edge the massage table is overlooking the glistening waves. There is a breeze blowing this early morning and the air is just the right temp. Zen is beckoning my name. Everything is just perfect…. then I wake up! This is a reoccurring bucket list dream of mine that always come to a halt. The location was always a little hazy until now!
The intoxicating vision of Little Dix Bay and quiet beach coves has been added as the location of my dream spa treatment! So completely, that there are even Exclusive Resorts luxury villas and a spa nearby including a Cliff Spa Suite. Sense, A Rosewood Spa is perched perfectly and dramatically on a cliff’s edge. Sound familiar? A beachside massage while perched up on a cliff with a spectacular ocean view has always been on my bucket list and should be on yours too! Sense overlooks the glistening Sir Francis Drake Channel is part of the Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort. This luxury resort was founded in 1964 by Laurance S. Rockefeller.
The British Virgin Island temperatures here hover around 80-degrees with constant breezes that beckon outdoor spa treatments. Meandering stone paths lead one through Zen gardens toward one of the nine treatment cottages overlooking those gorgeous waves of the channel. No reason this spa has been on many top lists including Conde Nast Traveleris Hot Spas and Spa Finder’s Top Beach Spas.
Spa treatments all include the essence of the culture of the area along with indigenous ingredients. One signature luxury treatment is a Virgin Gorda Goat Milk and Honey Wrap. Pair this with the Sea Salt Island Scrub and you will be bathing suit, beach or pool ready. Need more Zen? They also offer yoga, Pilates and meditation classes.
So when you arrive at the spa and are greeted with a local bush tea of lemon grass and chamomile you will know that the dream has now become a reality. You can then add the Sense Spa at The Little Dix Bay Resort from Rosewood to your Goblet List, which is a list of experiences that enhance your life and can recur over and over again!
