The Beauty of Travel

From ancient rituals to therapies based on native plants, our spas offer authentic local experiences. Spoil yourself, or give the gift of wellbeing to someone special.

In ancient Mayan culture the temazcal centered around a ritual to purify body mind and spirit. Savour the experience at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa in a tropical, beachside setting. Guests of the hotel's Kinan Spa relax among hot volcanic rocks, before applying aromatic mud. To finish, a cooling dip in the sea beneath the stars. Mineral-rich, earthy muds also feature in our signature massages and sensual treatments.

Librisa Spa at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town holds back the years with the heavenly Fundamental Facial. Harnessing the anti-ageing properties of rooibos extract, marula oil and rose otto, you’re left with a youthful, luminous glow. The spa champions leading South African skincare brand Africology, whose products are based on regenerative indigenous plants such as African potato and aloe ferox.

At Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, treatments are based on local, organic ingredients, often plucked from the hotel's own garden. The Belmond El Encanto Signature Scrub, for example, elevates your senses with our own blend of citrus, basil and mint essential oils, infused with Himalayan salt. Meanwhile, male guests warm to the Gentlemen's Hot Towel treatment, designed to deep-cleanse the complexion and rejuvenate the skin.

At Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado's Spa Mayu Wilka, soothing treatments echo the spirit of the Urubamba River. The tumbling waters can be glimpsed through the large windows of the beautiful wood and stone complex in Peru's Sacred Valley. In a range of invigorating body scrub treatments, salt from the nearby Maras pans is infused with other Andean and Amazonian ingredients including sacha inchi, while coca leaves are used in fabulous wraps.

Sample the bounties of the Balearics at Belmond La Residencia, where signature treatments such as Olive Activator and Citrus Siesta give this Mallorcan retreat an authentic local twist. Similarly, at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, Sicilian Sensations instils a you with a sense of place, combining an exfoliating volcanic lava treatment (from nearby Mount Etna) and a full-body massage using local fragrances such as orange flower.

In Myanmar, guests can indulge in a treatment while drifting dreamily along the river aboard Belmond Road to Mandalay. The Vital Energy Massage, designed to ignite health and restore vitality, uses poultices of Himalayan herbs, recalling our cruise to the foothills of the Himalayas along the Chindwin River.
