Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe

Royalton Antigua, located on the outskirts of the quiet village of Five Islands, Antigua is home to The Royal Spa. The spa journey begins the moment guests arrive at the spa, with staff offering a warm welcome, ensuring guests feel like royalty.

The spa’s hydrotherapy circuit features an extensive array of facilities including sauna, steam room, warm pool with jets and chromotherapy, jacuzzi, cold plunge pool, rain shower with three different temperatures, cold shower and a bucket shower. While waiting in the relaxation room for the treatment, guests might feel like they are listening to waterfalls, with the sound of the water plunging into the hydrotherapy pool, reminiscent of a tropical waterfall.

With a diverse spa menu including facials, body treatments, massages, mani-pedi and salon services, one of the highlights at Royal Spa is its signature Royal Samunprai Massage. This ritual is inspired by a centuries-old technique that brings deep medicinal heat to the muscles, utilizing herbs of lemongrass and Thai ginger, wrapped in a heated poultice for muscle rejuvenation, bergamot essential oil further enhances the experience.

The Royal Spa’s atmosphere is a true reflection of its name, each staff member pays special attention to the guest’s comfort and satisfaction with their services.
