The Prize – It’s a Really, Really Good One!

Amatista Spa is home to relaxing massages, brightening facials, and wonderful mani-pedis but also features some incredible technology and unique treatments not found elsewhere on the Island. While one lucky winner will win these treatments, our ‘also lucky’ locals can book either treatment whenever the mood strikes!

The Euphoric Indulgence Hydrotherapy body treatment is all about the Vichy shower. Inspired by, and named for, the French city’s five natural mineral springs, the Vichy shower features multiple shower heads of various pulses and temperatures. The treatment soothes muscles and deeply relaxes guests thanks to the sensation of floating on water. The shower is followed by a delicious massage done with body softening oil from Lola’s Apothecary. We’ve heard that the feeling is so unique and wonderful that it’s almost addictive…

Reflexology on Amatista’s Luxurious Spa Wave Bed is positively transformative. It’s hard to explain just how stress-reducing and life-affirming this treatment is – so trust us. It’s incredible. The signature spa wave bed offers a multi-sensorial experience focused on well-being, featuring music with binaural sounds, paired with gentle acoustic waves on a water wave bed. Combined with a reflexology treatment that applies a range of carefully mapped pressure to the feet and hands with Lola’s Apothecary massage oil – this is peak relaxation.

Wait. There’s More.

Enjoy two of Spa Director, Irina’s, favourite Lola’s Apothecary products – a full-sized massage oil and body soufflè cream in Delicate Romance. Falling in love is guaranteed.

The prize pack is valued at $600 and could be yours when you become an Amatista Spa insider and newsletter subscriber. Double your chances by following @westinbearmountain and @amatistavictoria on Instagram by February 28th.
