The Sulphur Seduction Experience, Dhs730


If you’re seeking some sun, then a must-visit is the Caribbean, particularly the island of St. Lucia. At the Sugar Beach resort you wonʼt just find yourself having one of the most opulent beauty treatments of all-time, itʼs a full-blown experience and itʼs recommended to be done in pairs. The treatment involves guests touring the sulphur springs on the island, and they then go on to enjoy an exhilarating mud bath using mineral-rich sulphur directly from the island. After tightening, naturally exfoliating and detoxifying the skin, the treatment is washed off in Mother Nature under the Toraille Waterfalls in the local area. To top it all off, enjoy a full body massage when returning to the resortʼs spa.
