The new spa brings the feel of Colony Club’s lush gardens inside, with foliage murals, tumbling vegetation and exposed stonework, harnessing the healing benefits of nature. The renovated spa features two expertly designed private treatment rooms, including a couples’ space, manicure and pedicure stations, and an outdoor patio and serene lounge for guests to relax in before and after their treatments.
Treatments at the Colony Club Spa start from £82. The spa is open every day except Monday, between 10am – 6pm. Guests can book treatments at the reception, call (+246) 432-2393 or email email@example.com
