Hidden away in a corner of one of the most remote islands of St. Vincent, the Mandarin Hotel has opened yet another of its stunningly luxurious locations. Every inch of the quiet island exudes an air of exclusivity, from the quiet beaches to the intimate little villas available for rent.
But if you really want to take advantage of the location, it’s absolutely worth booking a treatment at the Mandarin’s spa. The spa is even more magical when you realize that the treatment rooms are set into the mountain tops and include a breathtaking view of the surrounding sea.
In order to reach the spa itself, you’ll have to walk along the tranquil beach until you find the trail leading to a hotel staff member. The staff will guide you partway up the mountain until you reach a funicular, which will bring you the rest of the way up the peak to the spa’s various suites.
With nine different rooms available, you can choose from a variety of different treatments, whether it be a massage designed specifically to alleviate the aches and pains suffered by golfers, or a more standard facial or massage. Each treatment will be punctuated by the soothing call of the waves down below.
The spa has a few other amenities available to those who are willing to scale the mountainside, including a well-maintained gym and a yoga studio. The St. Vincent and Grenadine’s outpost is called Pink Sands Resort, and it’s an excellent choice for anyone looking for an exclusive location to spend their days on the beach. In between soaking in the sun while you tune out the stressors of daily life, it’s worth hopping on the funicular and taking a ride to the spa for a one of a kind relaxing experience.
