Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa

11 Blue Hole Hill, Bermuda


 

Looking for one of the most luxurious and unique spa experiences in the world to ring in another year around the sun? Look no further than Bermuda for your next birthday bash, where you’ll have the chance to enjoy a massage inside a 500,000-year-old grotto courtesy of Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa’s Natura Spa. A little background, the property innovatively helped its guests tick off their wanderlust, wellness and mermaid goals when it created this subterranean spa, located inside a grotto filled with spectacular stalagmites and stalactites. Fun fact: It's named after the famed Shakespearean character from “The Tempest,” Prospero.

Inside Prospero’s Cave, you’ll find a clear blue lake, which is where the spa treatments take place. Sit inside a pagoda and choose from an extensive selection of facials, body wraps, and massages that use a slew of organic ingredients including dead sea salt and citrus. Think luxurious treatments such as the detox algae body wrap, which includes a combination of dry exfoliation and a warm cocoon compress wrap that can help increase circulation and remove toxins. While the french vanilla sugar body glow with organic french roast coffee and Ayurvedic oils gently exfoliates your body and removes dead skin cells to encourage new cell generation. Even the waxing treatments are organic, with ingredients such as honey and resin as well as azulane, rose, and camomile making them perfect for any skin type. For a romantic retreat, there’s even a couples massage with candles and soft music available.

This unforgettable birthday experience is accessible to all (not just hotel guests of Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa) however, booking one of the charming Bermuda-style cottages which you’ll find spread out amid 21 lush acres of manicured gardens beside three pink-sand beaches is one bucket list worthy way to celebrate another year. If you’re hoping to follow-up your relaxing spa day with some outdoor adventure, the property also has an on-site water sports facility that can arrange for kayaking, snorkeling and windsurfing expeditions for you. While for dinner, there are three restaurants that serve European and Bermudian fare. One of them being the recently renovated Hibiscus Dining Room, a particularly delightful choice thanks to dishes such as local black rockfish au saffron and Bermuda Fish Chowder.
