Charlie's Spa is Couples Sans Souci's complete tropical-style facility, and has earned praise as one of the
best spas in all the Caribbean by numerous publications, critics, travel guides and of course, by their guests.
The spa got its name from "Charlie," a friendly resident sea turtle. More than 100 years old, Charlie lives
in the mineral spring grotto that bubbles up from beneath the resort with rejuvenating waters that rival
the great natural mineral springs of Europe.|
The mineral waters are the source from which the location's original popularity first sprang forth. As far
back as the 1700s, the mineral springs on the Couples Sans Souci property have been mentioned in Jamaican
history books as being excellent for health purposes and renewing romantic energy. For generations, people
from nearby villages would congregate on Sundays, lining up for the whole day to take their turn in the
mineral spring for its curative powers.
Today Charlie's Spa offers a complete array of revitalizing and pampering treatments to relax and tone the
body, mind and soul.
The 24-hour fitness center is complete with an indoor gym boasting the latest in aerobics equipment,
exercise machines and free weights. They also offer classes in aerobics, yoga, aquacize, Pilates and
meditation. The mineral pool is right by the gym if you want to go for an energizing dip and, if you can't
decide, personal trainers are available for every sport to assist you in developing a fitness schedule.
The most popular optional spa treatments are:
Swedish Massage:Taken indoors or in one of the three cliffside gazebos overlooking
the sea, it relaxes the muscles through major pressure points and the applications of aromatic oils.
Exfoliating Body Scrub:This helps renew the body from neck to toe, cleansing deep
impurities and polishing the skin. (Please note that Body Scrubs are a nude treatment)
Refreshing Facial: Facials release toxins through massage, steaming and an
exfoliating mask and leave the skin supple and renewed.
Reflexology: This treatment cleanses the internal organs of accumulated gases,
toxins and wastes by working pressure points on the feet.
