As the newest member of the Capella Hotels family, there is so much of Saint Lucia and Capella that I am excited to share with you! I thought it would be fun to start with one of my favorite destinations, Auriga spa at Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina. It has become an immediate favorite spot for guests and it is easy to see why.
With a warm and friendly smile, the therapists at Auriga spa are knowledgeable and always ready to guide you in your spa experience. When I came in with sunburnt skin, they helped me choose the right treatment for me and tailored it to help heal my burn. They even sent me home with some cooling aloe and mint gel and invaluable advice on how to prevent future sunburns. I was so thankful to have their guidance and care!
In the lounge area, I had the opportunity to enjoy some Mint Chlorophyll Water which has a long list of impressive health benefits: it helps cleanse the liver, helps the body heal faster, has antiseptic benefits, removes toxins and heavy metals, helps build healthy blood cells and increases the disease resistance of cells. It also happens to be delicious and incredibly refreshing!
While enjoying some much needed waterfall hot tub time, Miss Lune (or Spa Mama as she is lovingly referred to by everyone at Auriga) brought us freshly picked St. Lucian almonds that taste better than any almond I’ve ever had. Such lovely little gestures bring the experience at Auriga to all new heights!
Once I’d experienced the hot tub, steam room and sauna, my therapist treated me to the perfect massage. Free of all the tension that had built up in my muscles, I felt better than I had in a long time. Mental, spiritual and physical wellness is a primary focus of the Auriga spa philosophy and I definitely felt that after my treatment.
I also went home with a great tip from the therapists that I want to share with you now, especially with summer coming up! We know Aloe Vera gel is an amazing after-sun treatment for your skin, but you can take it to the next level by keeping it in the refrigerator. The innate therapeutic and conditioning properties of the Aloe will get to work healing your skin while the cool temperature of the gel will draw heat out of your skin providing you with instant relief. Reapply as necessary.
Make sure to schedule a visit to Auriga spa at Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina during your visit to Saint Lucia. Your Personal Assistant can work out all the details, so that you too can discover the amazing and healing treatments!
