Day Dreamer

I’ve found myself talking about the leaves changing colors and the temperatures cooling all too frequently, glossing over the fact that many luxury spas are located in tropical areas with balmy weather year-round and no need to worry about autumn in the traditional sense. Spa-goers can keep summer alive at seaside spas such as The Hibiscus Spa at Westin Grand Cayman. Here they can indulge in the Hibiscus Night Spa Package ($1,000 per couple), which includes a 90-minute Lavender Dreams Massage, a glass of Taittinger Champagne with canapés, exclusive use of the whirlpool, steam room, and sauna, followed by specialty spa cocktails and petit fours served in the relaxation lounge. The 7,000-square-foot spa promotes a total lifestyle approach that encompasses the entire person—body, mind, and soul—in order to provide the most complete and beneficial services for guests.

While there is no denying that floral aromatherapy offers its own form of stress relief, many spas and brands are digging deeper to put these flowers’ less publicized attributes to work. For more, check out Flower Power.
