The full-service Chill Wellness Institute & Spa offers tropically-inspired treatment rooms complete with lifelike jungle murals and names like Island Paradise and Bamboo Forest. The Tikki Hut manicure area is decked with a red and gold banquette, chocolate brown walls, and bamboo accents, while pedicure stations are outfitted with red velvet chairs, privacy curtains, and chandeliers. The spa's signature treatments incorporate some welcome twists: The Lava Shell Massage, a spinoff of the typical hot stone method, incorporates hand-picked tiger clam shells from the South Pacific; gentle hair removal is performed with no-strip organic hard wax, which "shrink wraps" hair rather than sticking to the skin like traditional wax; and the golden sheen achieved from the Australian SunFX organic tanning spray is safe even for pregnant women. If you tire of the tropical theme, the 90-minute 24 Karat Gold Facial is a standout for its antioxidant-rich, gold-infused products from French skincare line Fleur's, used to exfoliate and rehydrate the face, neck hands, and arms.
