The Spa at Strawberry Hill

March 26, 2007 By: Debbie Strong Travel Agent

The resort's Aveda Concept Spa caters to wellness-minded clients

Nestled high atop Jamaica's Blue Mountains, Strawberry Hill is home to the Strawberry Hill Aveda Concept Spa, an ideal spot for clients looking to add health and fitness to a relaxing retreat. The resort sits at the top of Jamaica's Blue Mountains

The spa has four dry treatment rooms, one dry couple's room,
and a hydrotherapy room. Spa Director Dale Mitchell (876-944-8400) recommends
that agents make bookings in advance, especially for those who opt for the
spa's most popular Caribbean Body Treatment, a detoxifying hydrotherapy
treatment infused with Caribbean plant
extracts. The treatment menu, which includes a Body Elixir and the Himalayan
Rejuvenation treatment, all use natural local ingredients. Be sure to recommend
a personalized Elemental Nature massage with most requested masseuse Marva

Yoga at dawn is available at the yoga shala (school), and
guests can also unwind in the spa's expansive sauna and plunge pools.

For a light meal post treatment, there's a separate buffet
area for spa clients. Served here are healthy dishes and island-fresh juices
such pineapple ginger lime juice and apple juice with herbal tea infusion. No
reservations are needed.

Strawberry Hill is also home to Executive Chef Darren Lee's
take on "New Jamaican Cuisine," a revamping of traditional spicy
dishes. Recommend the popular jerk lamb rack.

Strawberry Hill has highly private accommodations and is
best for upscale clients. Contact the resort's guest relations manager, Maxene
Mcpherson, at [email protected], 876-944-8400).

Deluxe studios are the most requested premium accommodation;
each of the 12 cottages has a private 500-square-foot balcony overlooking the
city 3,100 feet below.

feet—perfect to host large families or groups. Also note that the Jade Vine
