We pride ourselves in using Voya products which are the world’s first certified organic seaweed based products.

Not only do the ingredients restore and rejuvenate the mind, the careful blend of essential oils in each product balances the body and soul.

Why not delight in our Ocean Fresh Deluxe Facial or experience one of our Signature Seaweed Leaf Wraps. Even better, treat yourself to a soak in our Cleopatra Milk and Honey Bath which will leave your skin remarkably illuminated and hydrated. Afterwards slip in to the Sauna or Steam Room and then dip into our wonderful outdoor hot tub.
