The Spa at Bernardus Lodge shares the same warm, opulent and vaguely Mexican interior design found in the upscale Lodge at Bernardus. The exterior walls are a golden terra cotta with curving archways topped by Palladian windows. Inside, you’ll find a spa boutique with Saltillo tile floors and golden walls. A warm color scheme of gold, saffron and brick red is mixed with natural woods. Walk down a hallway illuminated with candles set on wrought iron stands and you’ll find yourself in the expansive warming room. A large square fireplace with a gleaming copper hood is the focal point of the room filled with velvety couches draped with throws. Oil paintings by Patricia Qualls in shades of peach, copper, brown and hints of blue evoke the seashore. The massage rooms have a more understated décor, but are illuminated by sconces and feature botanical prints.
