The New Spa at Amanpulo, Amanresorts’ Private Island Retreat in the Philippines
February 2, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Amanpulo, The PhilippinesDreaming of a deserted tropical island? Powdery sand, turquoise water, a colorful coral reef, not a soul in sight? Those idylls do exist... Take, for example, Amanpulo, the private island retreat in the Philippines' Sulu Sea, accessible only by private charter flight. Amanresorts, the collection of dreamy hotels started by hotelier extraordinaire Adrian Zecha, does it right with ultra-luxe amenities and stellar hospitality. And it keeps getting better. Amanpulo has just debuted a brand spanking new spa, designed in native wood with ceilings layered in capiz (shell)..

Located on a slope above the treetops with views of the sea, the Aman Spa features six spa treatment rooms in three pavilions, each equipped with a deep soaking tub, dressing room and steam shower. There's also a Yoga and Meditation Pavilion, a Pilates Studio, a gymnasium with top-notch equipment, and a Finishing Salon for hair, hand and foot treatments. All with views of the sea, of course. In March, the spa will open two steam rooms with cold plunge pools. A spa valet will pick you up at your guest room and usher you to spa reception, or you can motor over to the spa yourself, as each casita comes with a private buggy for getting around the island. So spaaaah.
