Sense, A Rosewood Spa Backgrounder
Dramatically situated on a cliff's edge, Sense®, A Rosewood Spa overlooks the glistening Sir Francis Drake Channel and the resort below. The intoxicating beauty of the surroundings captures the essence of relaxation and renewal, heightened by Caribbean specialties that fuse indigenous botanical resources proliferating on the grounds of the resort with traditional, spiritual and physical healing arts.
The spa offers an array of relaxed and welcoming facilities for treatments and activities, including a hilltop yoga platform for group classes, outdoor relaxation spaces, treatment cottages with windows opening onto the rhythm of ocean waves, and pools – including a two-tier infinity pool – set among three lushly landscaped acres. The exclusive Cliff Spa Suite is particularly suited for couple’s treatments, featuring luxurious private facilities for both indoor and open-air treatments, a dining area, private patio, hot tub and outdoor shower. The spa also offers separate changing rooms for women and men.
Upon arrival, each client is supplied with a bathrobe and sandals as well as a locker for clothing and personal belongings. A local bush tea of lemon grass and chamomile is provided to sip while completing a lifestyle questionnaire to be used for customized treatment recommendations. There are ample soft cotton towels throughout the spa area, and amenities such as deodorants, hair-styling products, razors and personal hygiene products are also available. Disposable underwear is provided for all body treatments.
Following each treatment, guests are escorted to their cottage's private outdoor terrace for "terrace time" – a brief respite for relaxing, meditating and absorbing entrancing 25-mile water views.
Sense offers a well-curated collection of treatments, many of which fuse indigenous Caribbean botanicals with the traditional spiritual and physical healing arts of the world. Popular offerings include the Virgin Gorda Goat milk & Honey Wrap, the Coconut & Caribbean Spice Body Bliss, and the classic Seaside Sedation Massage.
Group Yoga classes are available daily, with most classes offered between 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m, Monday through Friday, with an additional "Rise & Shine" Hatha Yoga Session at 7:00 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. on Friday mornings. Hosted by our FranklyFitness® Pro, at uniquely tranquil locations around the resort, guests will find this activity to be a relaxing complement to their Caribbean vacation. Participation in Group Yoga classes costs USD20 per person.
Private, group and kids’ classes are available upon request.
The resort’s fitness center is handsomely outfitted with cardiovascular machines including treadmills, Stairmaster and Lifecycles with cardio-theatre personal viewing flat-screen TVs showing cable programming and movies. The fitness center also offers Precor and Cybex training equipment and a complete set of free weights and kettle bells. Chilled drinking water, towels and fresh fruit are provided to assure enjoyable workouts. The Fitness Center is open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Young adults over the age of 16 are welcome to visit the spa and fitness center. To help parents enjoy their spa time while giving the kids an experience of their own, Sense® can tailor a fitness activity ranging from beach play or beach olympics to a children’s meditation session or even a nature hike.
The spa offers in-suite massages. A surcharge of 20% will apply for any in-room treatment.
