A wonderful, heavenly place to discover the romance of the rain-forest is Spa Botánico from Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve from Puerto Rico.
Set amid five lush acres, this verdant jungle retreat offers a treasure of romantic relaxation options in a sanctuary set within a fragrant pineapple garden. Among the possible places to unplug are the private pavilions that include outdoor rain showers, stone tubs and marble treatment tables, along with a luxe massage room, a bathroom and a cozy seating area for two. A standout service is the Rain-forest Re connection, which includes a sensual coconut, salt and cinnamon body cleanse in the garden steam room, followed by a body painting experience with Amazonian clay mud and a back massage.
Inspired by nature to impart a holistic sense of well-being, this Puerto Rico Spa resort pairs local ingredients with indigenous soothing traditions performed in the most unique of Spa settings for a total sensory experience.
Integration with the natural world is an essential component of Spa Botánico. The journey begins the moment entering the Dorado Spa’s Apothecary Portal, filled with local botanicals and the scent of lavender to set a tranquil mood. A truly unique experience unfolds in two tree-house treatment “rooms” as expert therapists work their magic in the shade of leafy branches. Outdoor showers and plunge pools allow you to remain immersed in the natural moment. Spa Botánico is a place to be savored step by step and discover its enchantment as well as an inner sanctuary.
