It is no secret that whenever we think about Negril, we think of miles of sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Whilst Negril is known for its quick beach getaway, a perfect location for snorkeling and scuba-diving — just over a week ago during my last visit I took a different spin on it.
Shortly before making my way to Germany, I had a quick 2-day stopover in Negril, Jamaica in which I checked my way into Skylark Negril. It was a short but sweet stay… and one that turned out to be possibly one for the most relaxing 2-day weekends I’ve had in the longest while.
I daddled in and took advantage of a Full-Spa weekend in Negril with Rockhouse Hotel and Skylark Negril. Here are the details…
Spa Weekend Negril
Just before jet-setting off to Germany with Condor Airlines, I stopover in Negril in which I checked my way into Skylark Negril. It was 2 days filled with ocean views and a whole other level of self-pampering. It first began with a Deep Coconut Bath Treatment at the Rockhouse Hotel, (just 5-miles away on west-end-side of Negril). But, not only was I in for a fancy coconut-bath-filled treatment but the views. I simply cannot get over the deep-ocean-cliff-views on the West-End… and Rockhouse has the perfect seating for that too.
I kicked out my Spa Weekend with a deep-bath treatment, then a completely Bali-inspired afternoon tea ceremony. Day 2- I sealed the deal with a Full-Body Swedish Massage at Skylark Negril. I wasn’t here for a long time, but I was here for a good time… and a relaxed time.
Coconut Milk Deep Bath Treatment
Have you ever walked into a room and the moment you enter you feel like you’ve been transported to somewhere you’ve always wanted to be? A place that seems to calm, so refreshing? Like, any feeling besides a state of happiness and contentment was just left on the outside? A feeling, that once you enter you know it’s going to be good? All of those thoughts rushed through my mind the moment I walked into the Bathhouse, and I knew I was in for a deep ride. *Pinche Me*
The Bathhouse treatment here is Rockhouse’s signature way of taking you on a holistic journey. From the feel, the aesthetics, the atmosphere—it is one of the most peaceful and rejuvenating processes. For 50 -minutes, I sat and soaked in a therapeutic(Coconut Milk) bath ritual accompanied by my selection of aromatherapy blend. Each blend is meant to: Release, Rapture or Restore.
I went with a Rapture blend, which happens to be a warm, aromatic synergy bathing experience. Filled with Coconut milk, coconut flakes, hibiscus and bougainvillea; my mind and body was at ease and it was during this moment I prayed for this experience to be twice as long. 🙂 I didn’t want it to end!
If you’re looking to go on a journey; one with sweet tropical aromas, one that will lift your mood and puts your mind and body at ease— I am personally recommending this bath treatment.
Bathhouse Treatment prices start at: $75 pp
A Bali Inspired Tea Ceremony
I hope I am not the only tea fan here. After the 50-minute deep bath treatment, a Bali Inspired Ceremony was next on the line-up. I kept asking myself if this day HAD to come to an end. I was in total relax mode; as it should be.
A Swedish Full Body Massage
Day 2 has arrived and I was still in awe from my spa treatment the day before. Feeling totally relaxed at ease. However, a full body massage at Skylark Negril was on the line-up and I was extremely excited about this.
I kicked-started off the day with breakfast and ocean views at Skylark before making my way up for a 1-hour massage session.
My massage spa session started out with a quick 5-minute foot ritual to release, rapture or restore and to sort of get you in the grove.
For 60-minutes, I laid still and basked in the moment of a full body stress-reducing process. Once again, another day I did not want to be over.
Though, feeling completely revitalized, relaxed and restored I was ready to take on my next trip. If you have never thought about making Negril your next spa destination, I highly recommend it. From the beach views, to the deep ocean cliffs, good energy, deep bathhouse treatment, spa sessions; it’s a complete package.
