Experience Polynesia. This luxurious treatment begins with the Exotic Island Body Scrub, a gentle vanilla-scented scrub blended with pure Bora Bora white sand, sea salt and crushed coconut shells for a thorough exfoliation. Next is a bath inspired by the crystal blue waters of the Manihi Lagoon to hydrate the skin. The Mahana Massage incorporates a rhythmic Lomi-Lomi massage using warm sand pouches to loosen muscles and nourish the skin. Finally, Polynesian Sacred Oil is applied to the skin.
The idea, is that you cover your face in this silica ooze, not formed here, but then leave it to dry, wash it off and feel all cleansed and lovely afterwards. You can have other treatments here if you want, there is a bar that serves up microbial facemasks and volcanic scrubs, but it is not cheap.
