BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (Feb. xx, 2014) – Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, the first luxury resort development in the British Virgin Islands in more than 15 years and first member of the Autograph Collection® in the Caribbean, has transitioned its award-winning, on-property Ixora Spa to the newest L’OCCITANE-branded spa in the Caribbean.
“Scrub Island Resort continues to elevate the on-island guest experience by partnering with only the most luxurious brands,” said Anura Dewapura, Scrub Island Resort managing director. “L’OCCITANE’s goal is to keep their state-of-the-art services very exclusive, but by offering their products and services to a limited number of select five-star resorts, they are able to extend this offering to guests who truly appreciate the French art-de-vivre.”
L’OCCITANE uses eco-friendly packaging and embraces the use of natural plants to enhance the allure and effectiveness of their products, which is important for all residents of the Caribbean because of their close personal connection to the natural elements.
“L’OCCITANE’s sustainable philosophies prove to be a great match for Scrub Island, with the team at Ixora Spa also aiming to embrace high quality, natural ingredients, some of which can be found in the Caribbean,” says Emily Lancaster, Ixora Spa by L’OCCITANE director.
“We have responsibilities as citizens of this world to take care of it,” added Dewapura. “The closer we are able to harmonize with nature, the better off our clients will be because natural elements provide the key to beauty and wellness, as well as a sense of wholeness and connectedness.“
Named for the native tropical shrub, the Ixora Spa by L’OCCITANE is perched on a hillside overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea offering a haven to relax, refresh and re-energize. The facility offers three treatment rooms, a manicure and pedicure area, an exclusive infinity pool only available to spa guests, and a L’OCCITANE boutique featuring an array of products for guests to take home with them. As a testament to the island’s namesake, signature scrubs are a requisite for spa goers seeking a true experience that embraces its cliff-side sense of place.
Other services offered at Ixora Spa by L’OCCITANE now include anti-aging facials, scrub and wrap combinations, massages, and two-, three- and four-day spa packages.
