You’ll be thanking Sirenian Bay’s wizard massage therapists for the rest of your stay after indulging in their skilled massages.

Their signature treatments are such a hit they even made it onto Access Hollywood! One of them is the cacao wrap treatment where you get the cacao swathed all over your body before being wrapped in banana leaves, plastic, and a blanket. Warning: you may smell like delicious chocolate for a little while after. For something more traditional, get your kinks ironed out with a massage, or opt for a waxing session to look and feel your best.
