Scattered over more than 100 acres of rainforest sloping down to a secluded white-sand beach (imported to replace the volcanic black sand), the Sugar Beach Viceroy Resort has a perfect bay for an afternoon anchorage. Known as the Anse des Pitons, the span of water between the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Piton is one of the most picturesque anchorages in the world.

From here, guests can take the tender to the jetty and step ashore to the Rainforest Spa. Nestled deep in the rainforest, the spa is a maze of traditionally built tree houses.

Seven treatment rooms are connected via wooden bridges, featuring wetrooms, beauty salons, an earthen Amerindian steam dome (Arawak huts of the ancient Carib Indians), and a relaxation pavilion suspended over running water.

Try the Caribbean Glow body scrub followed by a heated lava shell massage where the shells are used on pressure points to relax the body. Follow with a Natura Bisse Facial, which consists of an enzyme detox deeply cleansing the skin. Following your treatment(s), retire to the relaxation room, where the sounds of the native birds and running water will leave you in a tranquil state.

The Hillside Spa, Petit St Vincent

Nestled in the trees on Marni Hill, the Hillside Spa has been designed to blend into the island's surroundings, using local wood and materials.

Cotton House Spa, Mustique

Stepping into the Cotton House Spa is like stepping back in time. Indeed, the facility was originally the old cotton warehouse itself and was totally redesigned by the flamboyant British theatre designer Oliver Messel in 1968. Since then, the spa has enjoyed an exacting refurbishment to maintain the opulence of its early days.

The name conjures up images of fresh white fabric billowing in the breeze, and the spa's décor certainly reflects this. A bespoke range of treatments, many of which take inspiration from Mustique’s natural wonders, are available to guests on board visiting yachts.
