The Fern Tree Spa® is one of the more unique spas in the Caribbean, incorporating hardwood floors, grand entryways and opulent furnishings set in lush gardens. Couples may reserve the over water spa bungalows which open on three sides. Relax your mind, body and spirit with the hypnotic sounds of soothing waves below on the rocks and the soft sea breeze wafting through.

When you book one of the Fern Tree Spa® Signature Treatments, you will be welcomed with a ceremonial foot bath. You are escorted to a reception area to sit and relax, enjoy traditional Jamaican Bush tea and receive a foot bath infused with calming lavender water or rejuvenating nutmeg oil. What a way to start the relaxation process.
