ROSEWOOD TUCKER’S POINT UNVEILS NEW SENSE SPA

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Local News & Alerts | 0 comments

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® today unveils the newly branded Sense® spa at Rosewood Tucker’s Point with a vast new line of products and treatments. Inspired by Bermuda’s rich culture, tropical environment and island spirit, the
spa offers a signature array of massage, body treatments, skin care services, aqua therapy, manicures and pedicures.

“We are so excited to introduce Sense spa at Rosewood Tucker’s Point in Bermuda for both locals and visitors,” said
Jennifer Haack, Corporate Director of Spa Development for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “Rosewood has been rejuvenating guests at its award-winning spa destinations for over two decades and we’re thrilled to bring Sense spa to Bermuda. Spa travel has become an important part of the tourism industry and we recognise that people have more destination choices than ever before so it’s vital that we remain competitive and incorporating this Sense spa is one way to do it.”

Based on Rosewood’s motto of Sense of Place®, each Sense spa is unique to its location and honours local traditions  in healing, as well as incorporates indigenous natural elements into the treatments and décor. For instance, Bermuda honey harvested on property as well as aloe and Match Me If You Can plants from the gardens are used in various treatments. In addition, locker key chains, table displays and presentation trays are made out of Bermuda Cedar and treatment bowls are created with Bermuda blown glass.

“We want our guests to feel a true sense of Bermuda as part of their relaxation and rejuvenation,” said Ms. Haack.

“It is wonderful to see Rosewood Tucker’s Point investing in our overall tourism product with the Sense spa,” said the Hon. Wayne Furbert, JP, MP, Minister of Business Development & Tourism. “Bermuda is such a special place and has so much to offer. I’m thrilled that the elements and culture of the island have been incorporated into the philosophy of the spa so that tourists and locals alike truly feel the essence of Bermuda during their visits to the resort.”

The new line of products at Sense spa focuses on organic ingredients and the latest technologies in skincare,
anti-aging and rejuvenation. Brands include organic facial and body care by Tata Harper, advanced skin care from Priori Skincare, paraben-free hair care by Oribe and a vegan line of salon care by SpaRitual, while still incorporating some of the spa’s existing brands such as Germaine de Capuccini and vegan polish by Butter of London.

Treatments available include Bermuda Pawpaw Massage, Beekeeper Honey & Cane Sugar Therapy and Organic Care Facial. The spa also has introduced a Bermuda Lillies menu for teens and RoseBuds™ menu for children under 13. In addition, for the serious spa lover, Sense is offering various Spa Journeys lasting from two to five hours. One exciting addition is the Explore Bermuda four-hour Spa Journey in which the guest experiences the relaxing and rejuvenating effects of Bermuda’s botanicals along with locally inspired spa cuisine. The journey begins with a scenic walk through the spa’s garden to the newly revitalized sunken grotto, known as the Coffee Chine where the guest will hand-select the plants to be used in their Match Me If You Can body wrap.

“The Coffee Chine is such a special place on this property that has been around since the 1920s but hasn’t been used in many years,” said Ms. Haack. “We often have former guests who stayed at Castle Harbour ask about the Coffee Chine, so we took this opportunity to revive this unique grotto and incorporate it into the new Sense spa.”

Despite the new brand and product offerings, many of the treatments have decreased in price.

“We want to offer our guests a longer, more relaxing spa experience, so we’ve adopted more attractive pricing for many of our 80-minute treatments,” said Ms. Haack. “Also, there still is a perception that Rosewood Tucker’s Point is members only; however, the hotel and Sense spa are very much open to locals so we will be promoting special pricing throughout the year to attract Bermuda residents.”

To give locals a taste of the new Sense spa, there will be an event open to the public on Saturday, April 14 from 6pm to 8pm. Experts will be on hand to provide product and treatment demonstrations while guests enjoy the Sense spa signature beverage, spatinis and tapas as well as a variety of giveaways.
In addition, Ajne Organic Perfumes and Scent Systems will be creating personalised scents for guests while models will be showcasing the new line of lifestyle wear sold in the Spa by ea apparel.

Locals are welcome to visit at any time from April 13 to 15 for a tour of the spa. A 20 per cent discount will be offered on all bookings this weekend and then a 15 per cent
discount through the end of April. For information, please call 298-4030 or e-mail tuckerspoint.spa@rosewoodhotels.com.
