Nicaragua's first five-star boutique resort takes holistic
healing to a new level.
For the spa, picture six domed, palapa-type buildings on the
hillside of the Emerald Coast, each a treatment pavilion with its
own theme, from the Rain Forest to the Secret Garden, to help you
on the path to enlightenment.
Design details include palm leaves tickling the floor-to-ceiling
windows, while the products (turmeric and rice powder scrubs,
yoghurt face masks) use organic herbs and plants.
