Discerning guests travel from around the world to experience much more than traditional pampering services. The spa, utilizing a combination of therapies with ancient origins, incorporates innovative technology that focuses on the body's natural energy centers, the chakras. Spa Chakra is designed to serve as a wellness-oriented retreat, a full-course health and spa experience where guests can consult with the spa's wellness experts and have an extensive holistic analysis performed. There is an extensive menu of treatments that range from Yoga classes to 90-minute specialty facials, stress-relieving Hayman Hot Rock body treatment to a Jet Lag Travel Perscription. Therapies incorporate the exclusive Guerlain Method - a patented facial and body massage technique developed at the Guerlain Institute in Paris.
Five- star accommodations, world-class dining, and a slew of land and water adventures are available at the Hayman Island Resort. International awards listings include the Conde Nast Traveler US Gold List. For more detailed information, visit the resort website.
