Revitalising Vanuatu - Island Beauty
There’s nothing like relaxing on a tropical island to leave the stresses of work and modern living far behind. With its clear lagoon, fragrant tropical flowers and friendly people, Vanuatu is the ideal choice for a relaxing, revitalising holiday. As well as the stunning scenery, you’ll find a choice of spa, health and beauty services designed to refresh your mind, body and spirit – and that means you can glide into island-time the easy way!
Located on Efate Island the laidback capital of Port Vila is fringed by a magnificent deepwater harbour and sparkling lagoon that provide the perfect tropical setting for a luxurious spa or beauty treatment. Here, you’ll find Vanuatu’s newest and only independent day spa, Lotus Health & Beauty – a natural health centre and spa which follows a century’s old tradition of belief in the sacredness of the body as a temple of the soul. You can enjoy everything from relaxing massages, body scrubs and muds using natural local products to the famous hot stone massage – or try one of the traditional pampering treatments such as facials, pedicures and manicures.
Many local motels and hotels throughout Vanuatu offer traditional beachside island massage and several of Efate’s resorts have dedicated Day Spas offering the latest spa and beauty treatments. Options in and around Port Vila include the Namele Day Spa at Le Meridien, Chantilly’s Beauty Spa and Platinum Hair & Beauty.
Offshore, you can enjoy the peaceful seclusion of Frangipani Day Spa on Iririki Island. Just a three-minute ferry ride from downtown Port Vila, this beautiful private island is surrounded by palms, tropical orchids and hidden coves, creating a truly tranquil spa setting.
