We were thinking….what could give you even more a holiday feeling besides white beaches, sunshine and beautiful nature?
Well, for many of us the answer might be to treat yourself to a massage. Or any other pampering: get your nails done, a fresh haircut, some new make up.
Maybe even better, a whole day, just for yourself, at a beautiful spa.
Curacao offers quite a few spa’s. But we certainly love ‘8 the experience’, which is close to the Lodges, just appox. 10 minutes drive.
And, as the spa is located near the sea, 8 gives you, and we do not exaggerate, the best view you ever had while getting your hair done.
When arriving at 8, you first enter the shop. Here, the product line of Aveda is being sold (the brand which is also being used for all treatments in the spa and the studio).
Aveda is fully organic and made of natural flower and plant ingredients and needless to say, smells lovely too.
8 offers body-, hair-, massage- and facial treatments. Prior to your visit to 8, it is best to check the website first and based on your wishes, make a reservation.
If you walk a little further, passing the lounge (where coffee, tea and fresh juices are being served) and turn right, you enter the spa area. Here are the open-air treatment rooms, all with a stunning view overlooking the sea.
After or in between treatments you can relax outdoors by the meditation pool or in one of the jacuzzis. There is also a sauna, a steam room, and a ‘one of a kind’ igloo room kept at 5 degrees Celsius. Everything just looks as amazing as it sounds. The place is decorated with an eye for detail and gives a relaxing and comfortable feeling.
On certain days, also yoga classes are being given. Make sure, if you have the availability, to sign up for one of these, we can definitely recommend.
On the other side of the building, you will find the studio. There is a special treatment area for hand and feet – and it’s a fact that, being in the tropics, walking bare feet all day, screams for well taken care nails and feet 😊. Here, you can also have your hair done. Just a cut or blow-dry, but we recommend to chose for a so-called Botanical Therapy treatment, which will make your hair look healthier, shinier and feel luxuriously soft and silky.
Oh, oh, leaving 8, you will look and feel stunning!!
