Indulge yourselves to a couples' spa experience on your next holiday in the Pacific Islands. Ever inducive to romance, you'll be pampered and rejuvinated at our favourite spas in the Pacific Islands. 

Sospa at Sofitel Moorea: Ia Ora Beach Resort

Set amongst the startling azure waters and green mountainous borders of French Polynesia’s Moorea Island, the SoSpa at the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort is a heavenly tropical escape and the perfect ending to days spent lounging in the sun.The spa menu, heavily influenced by Moorea’s Polynesian location and ancestry, is filled with natural goodies like coconut milk, white sand, tropical flowers, nourishing tamanu oil and papaya; you’ll leave smelling heavenly. In the months from April to October, SoSpa also offers night time outdoor massages on the edge of the nearby lagoon – utterly blissful and oh-so-romantic. 

Deep Ocean Spa, Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa Hotel

Situated within the post-card worthy Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort, (those holiday fantasies of turquoise waters, emerald mountains and luxurious overwater bungalows are definitely fulfilled here) the Deep Ocean Spa is a serene oasis reflecting the sheer, jaw-dropping beauty of its location. A selection of glass-floored overwater treatment bungalows allow guests to view the crystal clear waters and colourful marine life below, whilst outdoor jacuzzis and lounge areas take full advantage of the hypnotic ocean vistas.Treatments involve mineral-rich deep sea water drawn from the depths of the South Pacific, a range of marine lotions and potions by Algotherm and Polynesian massage techniques reminiscent of the natural flow of the tides. 

Four Seasons Bora Bora Spa

Nothing says Tahiti quite like an azure lagoon enclosed by lush greenery, and at Bora Bora’s Four Seasons Spa, this is just the setting for some indulgent relaxation. Incorporating French Polynesian ingredients such as Tahitian black pearl powder, vanilla and monoi, the wide range of treatments reference ancient Tahitian traditions which will put your mind, body and soul at ease. Each treatment is preceeded by a dreamy Maeva foot ritual, where a thorough exfoliation and detox oil massage rids the body of impurities and sets the tone for the relaxation to come. 

Rumours Waterfall Spa, Rarotonga Cook Islands

Set amongst the private thatched bungalows of Rumours Luxury Villas is the Waterfall Spa, a multi- award winning haven which combines the best of the Pacific Islands’ traditional beauty secrets with the warmth of the local people. Various kinds of massage are on offer, as well as a range of Polynesian masks and body scrubs expertly crafted from delicious local ingredients. Choose from heavenly concoctions like organic ginger and cinnamon; sea salt jasmine and vanilla; and honey and frangipani. The Hydra massage is also a staff favourite – imagine being massaged with warm oil under a waterfall! Simply divine!
