One&Only Spa, The Bahamas

A Balinese-inspired retreat in the Caribbean
With world-class cuisine, spotless accommodations and azure waters, One&Only Ocean Club, Bahamas is a source for sensory overload. But of all the things that have a hand in causing a tropical trance, One&Only Spa, The Bahamas might be the biggest culprit. 

If you could imagine a space of utter tranquility that’s Indonesian in its look and feel but Bahamian in just about everything else, you’re almost halfway to realizing what a visit here is like. In truth, the spa’s eight private treatment villas and 50-plus services are wholly therapeutic, taking you to a place of restoration that you won’t find on any map.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Even though you’re surrounded by swaying tropical plants and a stunning coastline, there are moments at the Caribbean spa when you’ll wonder where in the world you are.
  • One of those occasions comes when a hotel attendant escorts you toward the spa. As you approach each villa, you’ll walk down a gravel pathway into a garden with a day bed and hydrotherapy tub.
  • Bali actually serves as the inspiration for outdoor spaces and interiors.
  • Teak massage tables, floating sinks that sit atop wood cabinetry and natural tones set a relaxing tone reminiscent of a secluded village on the coast of the Indian Ocean.
  • Before even stepping into your treatment room, you get your first taste of the facility with the foot wash ritual, a symbolic gesture that takes place in the garden.
The Treatments
  • While the Dream spa treatment (a blissful mix of a detox, scalp and body massage and restoring wrap) comes highly recommended, the trained staff promises satisfaction through any massage, facial or salon service on the menu.
  • Should you need more relaxation after that, linger a bit longer with a bathing ritual (milk and honey, detox or floral) or on the day bed with a cup of herbal tea.
  • The Elemis Aroma Stone Therapy is a popular tension-melting massage that can last 50 or 75 minutes, depending on your preference.
  • Another signature at this tropical resort spa is the Balinese Body Polish, which is an exfoliating ritual using orange, lime and other flavored scrubs.
The Facilities
  • After a detoxing massage or smoothie facial, the exhalation doesn’t have to stop. Soak in the tub or rinse off in the waterfall shower connected to the room.
  • Though lounging at the beach and snoozing on hammocks are two of the most popular activities, that’s not to say guests in need of a bit more movement are without options.
  • For starters, there’s also a sparkling fitness center, which sits just a few hundred feet from the spa, that’s decked out in the latest Kinesis gym equipment.
  • Yoga enthusiasts will be happy to know that the property offers one-hour beachfront classes as well as sessions on a deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
