Overview

What is a Spa of the World™ massage?

Based on a traditional Swedish massage, this is an ideal first time treatment with a truly indulgent twist. The tiare flowers used within the Spa Of The World™ Polynesian Monoï Radiance Oil are grown on the islands Tahiti and Moorea French Polynesia are and are hand-picked by local women at 5am, just before the petals open. The oil is then produced by soaking the petals of the tiare flowers in coconut oil. French Polynesians have used Monoï oil as a natural skin and hair softener for thousands of years. Designed in collaboration with The Body Shop®, this deeply relaxing experience will whisk you to an island paradise and leave your skin glowing.
