The name of this serene spa tells no tall tales: it's actually a cabana. Cast in sea-blues and greens, the nature-mimicking color motif runs from the bustling outside in, and with it brings visions of relaxing on a quiet beach. That feeling goes for the treatment rooms too, where blue walls give way to flowing white drapes and wicker furniture, plush massage beds, and live plants. Whether you prefer a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, therapists apply their healing kneads to help destress the day. An anti-aging facial can also help reduce the signs of aging, and a full-body salt exfoliation helps slough away rough skin and any stubborn barnacles.

While The Cock & Bull Pub and Restaurant's actual bricks and mortar reside in Seabrook, its interior might as well be 5,000 miles away in a cozy corner of Manchester. The eatery's UK vibe emanates from a menu of British specialties, with chefs preparing classics including bangers and mash, fish and chips, and shepherds pie. Guests wash down these creation with pints from the generous taps, which house 55 beers suitable for any taste or occasion.
In addition to the authentic food and drinks, the pub also maintains the same communal conviviality of its cross-Atlantic cousins. Throughout the week, musicians fill the space with largely acoustic live music, with styles ranging from Scottish folk to Texas country. The proprietors also maintain an in-pub library, a cozy corner with couches where guests may retire for a light repast and a bit of scandalous rumor-mongering about the poor state of the neighbors' lands.
