As you read on, you’ll experience snippets of what could be at some of the magnificent Caribbean retreats out there; guaranteed to spoil you with total relaxation, offering you the best of their tropical ambience and majestic views.
True relaxation awaits at Kamalame Cay, an isolated island paradise that features the only overwater spa in The Bahamas. Kamalame Cay is a family established and run resort that combines barefoot luxury and laid back charm with unspoiled tropical grandeur and ultimate privacy.
Not only does Kamalame Cay project wellness and relaxation, but the resort also makes a conscious effort to be sustainable too. The Overwater Spa in the Bahamas offers a unique wellness experience, combining island indulgence with organic luxury. ‘The island is utterly secluded and offers an unplugged experience that turns the focus to the beauty of the natural environment.’
The spa is centred on custom treatments paired with the finest marine-based ingredients. The certified organic OSEA products used are rich in bioavailable seaweed, infused with essential oils, and free of synthetic parabens and sulphates. Guests can enjoy an array of holistic beauty and body therapies including facials, massage, exfoliation, and wraps. The sound of the waves and sweeping ocean views the Overwater Spa boasts will connect you with the natural environment and harness an all-encompassing feeling of relaxation.
‘OSEA are passionate about using plant-based ingredients, thoughtfully sourced to ensure quality and ethical treatment of those involved in the harvesting process.’ Ensuring they support local economies and small business, OSEA work with community and family-operated collectives wherever possible. OSEA is also now officially Climate Neutral Certified, having measured, offset, and reduced 100% of their carbon footprint.
‘The Island House stands out among Bahamian resorts, having been designed with both visitors and the local community in mind, and as a symbiotic extension of the surrounding environment.’
The Bahamian boutique presents a tranquil, comforting wellness retreat that offers a wide variety of individually-crafted treatments, all based on Bamford’s trademark holistic approach to utilising and rejuvenating the power of nature. The Bamford Body Collection is an English brand renowned for its commitment to nature, purity, and authentic luxury. Used throughout The Island House, the products form the basis of the range of organic beauty, massage and therapeutic treatments offered at the spa.
Bamford’s philosophy rejects the throwaway culture of modern living; instead, they opt to respect nature’s resources and make certain that this attitude will live on for the generations to follow. They achieve this notion by tracing their footsteps from the environmental impact of the ingredients, fibres, dyes and the water they use, right through to their social responsibility.
