Treatments feature organic ingredients like coconut oil, native to Puerto Rico.

Organic ingredients native to the island of Puerto Rico, like coconut oil and coffee, as well as rum, are used in signature treatments at the lush St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort’s Remède Spa. Guests follow a floating walkway to secluded villas, surrounded by tropical gardens, where they are treated to therapies like the Encanto Rum Massage and the Borinquen Coffee Polish. For the ultimate in pampering, try Queen Loiza’s Royal Treatment, which recreates the journey of a Taíno queen. It begins with a golden sugar scrub to help repair sun damage and improve skin elasticity, followed by a Vichy shower. A 24-karat gold shimmer oil massage completes the royal experience.
