Take your vacation relaxation to the next level and spoil yourself with a day of pampering at Cayman’s luxury spas, salons and meditative activities.
9:00 am: Wake up!
First stop should be a light breakfast, so start your day bright and breezy with a juice or smoothie from the amazing Jessie’s Juice Bar in Camana Bay. A juice-based smoothie from there will make for the perfect health-filled start.
9:30 am: Morning Stretch
Bodyworks on West Bay Road is a tranquil haven that offers some fantastic yoga sessions — from beginners all the way to more advanced moves — for a relaxing and invigorating kick-start. Bliss Yoga offers private yoga sessions on the beach for lovely views as well as a great workout! Or, visit their studio and try out a variety of practices, including Baptiste-style, Vinyasa yoga, hot yoga and Kundalini.
11:00 pm: Botanic Therapy
The Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort’s lovely Botanika Union spa should be the next order of the day, where you can enjoy a wonderful collection of holistic treatments and therapies that centre on all-natural and botanical elements. Starting with a facial skin-conditioning treatment designed to correct inflammation, your therapist will exfoliate and boost your skin with serum and then recommend a particular facial, which might include their fantastic vitamin C15 and retinol age defence facial that literally lights up your face and will help you find your inner youth again. Visit their relaxation lounge and enjoy a holistic beverage at their Vitality Bar, chock full of all things good for you, such as natural elixirs, herbal tonics, locally made kombucha on tap, organic teas and tinctures.
2:00 pm: Detox Middle Eastern-style
The Kimpton Seafire’s spa is like entering into a whole new world of luxury, with seven treatment rooms and a grand soaking tub in which to while away the day. A stunning setting that entices you with promises of a unique experience. For your afternoon’s delight, take their purification Hammam journey, an incredible detoxification that includes immersing yourself in soft, creamy detox mud for a deeply cleansing experience, followed by a Turkish head massage and then a cleansing, before a full-body massage. It’s 120 minutes of pure heaven. All treatments come with full use of a steam room, relaxation lounge, co-ed Jacuzzi and access to their delightful garden patio.
4:00 pm: Polished to Perfection
The staff at Focus Hair and Beauty at the Marquee Plaza off West Bay Road do exactly what the name says: They focus on their clients. Enjoy an expert haircut or colour, waxing, pedicure, manicure and the best set of eyelash extensions money can buy. Beautician Bhing’s exceptional talents have people queuing up for those lashes.
7:00 pm: Heavenly Ending
Keep your mind and body in harmony and close out your pampering session with a free meditation session at Bodyworks, offered on Thursdays. Afterwards, treat yourself and a loved one to dinner at the divine Blue Cilantro. The expertly designed interior is clean, bright and modern; their glamorous turquoise bar a haven for a delicious cocktail; and the Indian spices in their lovely cuisine will perk up your senses as you reflect on this perfect day.
