Upon entering emOcean, guests trade in their possessions for organic cotton robes. Freed from their day-to-day duties, patrons recline and drift away atop bamboo sheets and pillows. Clients have a choice from the following three one-hour treatments: a relaxation massage, a soy body wrap and scrub, or a facial. Prior to receiving the signature treatment of their choice, bodies submerge for a 30-minute swim in the soothing saltwater pool, which is relatively free of tiger sharks. A far-infrared-sauna treatment cleanses bodies of toxins via sweat, and the pampering includes an aromatherapy steam shower.
The treatment takes about 2.5 hours, and gluten-free granola or organic fruit smoothies sustain visitors throughout their relaxation sessions. These nutrient-rich snacks are complemented by a liquid boost via a cup of organic herbal tea or Laughing Whale Coffee.
When Rosanne Balsom started emOcean, it was little more than a murky saltwater pool. Today, that crystal-clear swimming hole is the focal point among myriad spa and health services, ranging from massage and cosmetics to physiotherapy and podiatry. Adjacent to glass-fronted infrared saunas, aromatherapy steam showers reinvigorate the senses with warm mist, revitalizing scents, and the lilting giggles of complimentary fairies. Whether feeding guests or powdering recently exfoliated cheeks, the spa’s team keeps an eye on sustainability, using organic cotton robes, locally sourced Laughing Whale Coffee, and soy-based body scrubs.
