The strains and stresses of this modern world can wear down even the strongest person. And our culture promotes working too much as some kind of shiny ideal, leaving many people unable to balance all that hard work with enough rest, relaxation, and self-care. One of the best ways to reward yourself for all your effort is to enjoy a lovely spa vacation at the Black Orchid Resort.
The restorative process begins the moment you arrive at the resort, a lush oasis of tranquility and beauty on the bank of the Old Belize River. Although Black Orchid is just a 15-minute drive from the international airport in Belize City, the resort is located in the idyllic villages of Burrell Boom where the sounds of birds and the scents of pure rainforest air create a peaceful environment.
Your spa vacation begins at heart-shaped rooftop jacuzzi that enjoys a wonderful view of the surrounding nature. The warmth of the Belizean sun and the gentle breeze through the tree tops expertly pair with a tropical cocktail made to order by the resort staff. Shuck off your constricting clothes, drink in the atmosphere, and let the bubbles, nature, and delicious beverages begin to melt away your stress.
From there, you simply choose which items you want from the spa menu and one of the resort’s professional spa professionals will begin your treatment. Enjoy your pick of massages, wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures, or aromatherapy treatments as the gentle sounds of nature gently help relax your mind, body, and spirit.
Black Orchid Resort employs experienced and highly trained professionals to provide a soothing and relaxing treatment perfect for your needs. Choose from a variety of massage styles, including a full body Swedish massage (60 or 90 minutes), hot stone massage (60 minutes), deep tissue massage (60 or 90 minutes), or a refreshing head and neck massage (30 minutes). Whether you’re looking to melt away your stress and strain or simply want to feel energized and relaxed, these massages will rejuvenate you, including for people who find it difficult to power down and surrender to a professional’s healing touch.
Other popular spa options include a variety of wraps and facials, including body polishing (your choice of aromatherapy salt or sugar scrub), full body seaweed wraps, full body herbal wraps, full body paraffin wraps, hydrating facials, herbal facials, and anti-aging facials. And, of course, you can choose from a variety of mani/pedi options, all of which include an exfoliating scrub, moisturizing massage, and (optional) nail polish.
Belize is a country of wondrous beauty and exotic nature. It’s also the perfect country to reward yourself for all your hard work by relaxing and indulging in a full spa treatment at the Black Orchid Resort.
