The Crocodile Bay Resort Spa is Relaxing & Rejuvenating!

When my family visits Crocodile Bay, we all enjoy the Spa. My wife and daughter enjoy the Spa Packages, which are longer combinations of treatments, but I really look forward to a great massage. I have tried nearly all we offer during my yearly visits. I have had the Swedish Massage, which is a thorough working over if you haven’t had a massage in a long time, and the Bamboo Massage, with different thicknesses of bamboo applied which feels somewhat like a baking roller on a pie dough, with somewhat of the same goal, to flatten you out! I have had the Sports Massage which pays special attention to those muscles you’ve just used most in your most recent athletic endeavor and the Therapeutic Massage, a gentle, relaxing massage paying equal attention to nourishing and hydrating your skin.

This year, Justa Solano, Crocodile Bay Resort’s Spa Director has fine tuned our Spa Menu and added eight new Special Treatmens for 32 Spa Treatments total. I am just going to tell you the new ones and let you read about them in the online Spa Menu – http://www.crocodilebay.com/spa.htm#menu

Tired Legs Massage
Cleopatra’s Massage
Pearl – a Luxury Body and Facial Treatment
Gold – A Luxury Body Treatment
Special Facial for Men
Back & Shoulders Stones Massage
Reflexology with Stones Massage
Awaken your Senses – Head, Neck, Shoulders, and Face Massage

Ms. Solano tells me that each year she freshens the d├ęcor with new and different natural flowers, candles, rocks and linens for each massage room subtlely to create a natural and exotic environment, transporting you to tranquility. As you enter the Spa on the path from your room, past the beautiful flowering plants outside the spa, you will be greeted by one of our professional masseuses who will show you to your locker room for showering and will be given a robe to wear in the spa. I recommend you come early to shower and relax in the main room with your choice of a glass of red or white wine, or natural drinks like ice tea, fruit juice or other beverage. The spa is relaxing and it is quite nice to enjoy the quiet after a busy day of having fun.

The Crocodile Bay Spa uses organic and premium products native to Costa Rica.
You can see the Bio Bella brand here http://www.biobellaorganics.com/ . We sell what we use, so if you enjoy a treatment it is possible to take it home with you. Another major brand Ms. Solano uses and recommends is the world renown Germaine de Capuccini. It is available at the Resort, and you can avail yourself of a consultation with Ms. Solano to choose the best product for you before your treatment.

There are also a number of other original and different scrubs available –
The Sea Salt Polish, using not only mineral rich sea salt, but also essential oils, seaweed and green tea for an invigorating cleanse. The Coffee Polish, using fine coffee, oils and herbs to exfoliate and refesh you. The Chocolate Body Scrub, with honey, which while cocoa is also a bean like coffee, offers a finer exfoliation for those with more sensitive skin, the Coconut Body Exfoliation, somewhere in-between the Chocolate and Coffee experiences. Also in this category, we offer a Volcanic Clay Body Wrap with Banana Leaves. Costa Rica is renowned for its volcanoes, and the organic clay offers minerals from deep inside the earth. An Aloe Vera mini-facial is applied while you rest wrapped in a banana leaves cocoon.

Visit the Spa and have a tour, if you would like. We keep a guestbook at the entrance to the Spa, so if you have any doubts, you can look through it at any time during your stay at the resort. The most common comment is that our guests loved the Spa, and I am sure you will, too.
