Because of this, on the first day of our week in paradise, we decided to indulge ourselves with the ultimate relaxation experience. We treated ourselves to a day at the spa.
From the moment we stepped through the threshold of the spa, we were treated with the best service imaginable. In addition to the service, it was the little touches that left a huge impression on me. The locker room was pristine and stocked with toiletries. Each locker was thoughtfully prepared for each spa patron with beautifully folded towels and washcloths, individually wrapped soap, a robe and sandals. There is an indoor lounging area with fresh water, juice, and fruit. However, Tom and I decided to relax at the outdoor coed area prior to our treatment.
We both had the lemongrass hot stone massage for our treatment. At our appointed time, we were both escorted to one of the property’s gingerbread cottages that served as individual treatment rooms. The inside of the treatment room has a plantation cottage feel with wooden shutters and beamed ceilings with a ceiling fan. My massage therapist, Beuvita, was incredible. I always love pressure to work out all of my muscle tension and Beuvita did not disappoint. The treatment was absolutely relaxing, but also very therapeutic (necessary in my daily work!). After I dressed, Beuvita greeted me with a cup of fresh lemongrass tea.
After our treatment, Tom and I met up and ordered lunch. We didn’t know this, but it takes about an hour to prepare the meal from the spa menu. We would recommend placing your order upon your arrival and let them know when you would like to dine. Another note Tom has especially for men: The meal is “light and healthy” but it is extremely fresh and flavorful. Do not be afraid to order it! Indeed, Tom and I both agree that our meal from the spa was our favorite during the entire week we spent at the Four Seasons Nevis. We chose to dine on loungers by the plunge pool with Mt. Nevis in the background. The meal arrived in a beautiful bento box with your choice of juice or smoothie. I selected the “Light and Easy” meal that consisted of a green veggie salad, an arugula salad with poached salmon, a mango and lobster summer roll, and tropical fruit with a light Nevisian honey dressing. Tom had the “Fragrance of the East” which featured ahi poke, steamed red snapper, shrimp and grapefruit salad, and mango with yogurt. As I write this, the memories of the tastes and textures of this meal are making me salivate!
If you have the time, please plan on spending several hours before and/or after your treatment at the spa. The spa at the Four Seasons Nevis has incredible treatments. Equally important is the tranquil environment of the spa complex. The changing rooms have steam rooms in which to relax. The grounds of the spa are extremely beautiful and waiting to be explored. In addition to the loungers overlooking Mt. Nevis, there is a separate relaxation area surrounding the Jacuzzi, complete with a lovely waterfall. While lounging, we were offered cool lavender scented washcloths to refresh ourselves. There are ice water and fruit infused ice water stands throughout the complex. Although there were several other people indulging in treatments, we never felt the space was crowded. In fact, the spa felt like our own personal sanctuary.
Tom and I were extremely impressed with the spa experience at the Four Seasons Nevis. The massage treatment, the relaxing lounge areas, the exquisite beauty of the grounds with Mt. Nevis in the background, and the delectable lunch all contributed to a most spectacular spa day.
