Spas We Love
Tigerlilys love to travel and we also love to zen out and relax from time to time... Inspired by the Atzaro Spa on the Bikini Trail in Ibiza we have put together a list of our favourite health & spa retreats discovered on our travels...

La Mamounia, Marrakech
Unleash your Moroccan goddess at La Mamounia, known as one of the best spas in Marrakech. We are completely mesmerized by the hotel’s ornate marble and mosaic ceilings and arched columns. All treatments incorporate the use of natural ointments like black soap, Ghassoul clay, Argan oil, rose water and orange blossom water.
Como Shambhala Estate, Bali
Located near beautiful Ubud is Como Shambhala - a Tigerlily favourite. This wellness retreat offers an array of spa treatments including a Javanese Royal Lulur Bath that refreshes and revitalizes tired skin. After a Balinese massage, you will be pampered with an aromatic body scrub of mixed spices, followed by a hydrating fresh yoghurt body wrap to cool the body and a flower filled bath to instill calmness.

Kamalaya, Koh Samui
Beautiful Kamalaya is centred around a monk’s cave that once served Buddhist monks as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat. Kamalaya literally means ‘lotus realm’ – the flower is an ancient symbol for the growth and unfolding of the human spirit. We strongly recommend you try one of their Personal Yoga Synergy packages. Yoga is such an important physical, mental and spiritual practice to transform the body and mind.

The Jiva Spa at Taj Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
You will feel like an Indian princess when you visit Jiva Spa at Taj Rambagh. The spa suite tents have a fairytale ambiance - being decorated with traditional rugs, glowing chandeliers, royal pennants and regal Indian love swings. Why not try Gemology? Legend has it that Lord Shiva created ratna (gems) as a cure for various illnesses. Gem therapy helps to restore your balance, bringing peace, prosperity, happiness and health to the body.
Monastero Santa Rosa Spa, Amalfi Coast
The secluded Spa at Montastero Santa Rosa is located within the enchanting walls of a 17 th Century monastery near the quaint fishing village of Conca dei Marini. The Thermal Bathing suite features historic monastic spaces with traditional arched openings. We love the ‘Emotion Showers’ – a treatment that allows you to choose from three water experiences with differing temperatures, aromas and water sensations. Feel the warm Mediterranean rain, cooling mist or powerful gush showers - all designed to revitalize and refresh the mind and body.

Gwinganna, Gold Coast
Not too far away from home is Gwinganna, a place to relax and nourish your body and spirit in the beautiful Hinterland of Queensland’s Gold Coast. On the Gwinganna Dreamtime menu you can pick from a number of specialized treatments. We loved the Miryani Ritual, named after Miryani - goddess of the spa. The ceremony begins with a circling of sage and meditation to honour the elements of nature. You will be then treated to a billabong footbath, body treatment using indigenous native herbs and local macadamia oil and a light massage before you are awakened to new beginnings with notes from the sound bowl.
Atzaro Spa, Ibiza
Located in the heart of Ibiza and built on an orange farm is Atzaro – a tranquil oasis that smells deeply of the Mediterranean Sea. Surrounded by ibithencan-whitewashed walls, the Spa of Atzaro offers a range of treatments nurturing health and wellbeing. The Elemis exotic lime and ginger body peel is a must – especially for those who have been frolicking in the Ibizan sun. The body peel is designed to revitalize the skin and stimulate healthy blood circulation using exotic salves made from lime and ginger.
