NEW DELHI, 02 APRIL 2020: Today travellers are moving towards trips that allow them to start a healthy lifestyle. As the shift to holistic development and taking care of oneself continues to grow, people have increasingly sought to fulfil these needs while travelling.

With palm ferns rustling in the wind and balmy ocean breezes to chase away the hot air, Jamaica is an idyllic wellness destination, abundant in options for rejuvenation, revitalizing treatments, rest and healing. Here are few of the many invigorating, health-enhancing offerings you should check out whilst on the island:

Milk River Bath
The South Cost of Jamaica has one of the best mineral baths in the world. Milk River Bath contains some of the most radioactive waters in the world. On average, the waters here are a consistent 90 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, and contain high levels of magnesium, calcium, sulphate and natural chloride. The mineral waters flow directly from a source in a rock and are especially recommended for use by those suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, sciatica and nerve complaints. The waters, however, are so hot and radioactive that patrons are warned to stay in for no more than ten to twenty minutes at a time, and then for no more than three baths per day.

The Trident Spa
The Trident Spa merges holistic techniques and philosophies from around the globe into a potent blend of Caribbean treatments. The spa is operated by a staff of experienced therapists, and is highlighted by elegant outdoor massage areas that directly face the sea. The journey begins at their spa reception where you may change into a comfortable sarong or robe before being led to your treatment of choice. Unwind to the lull of the waves as you fully relax, renew and equilibrate mind, body and spirit. There is also an adjoining yoga deck for private or group enjoyment.

Bush Bath
This one-of-a-kind wellness practice is often recommended when one is undergoing undue stress, misfortune, skin problems and other ailments. Often prepared outdoors, a bush bath utilizes a variety of fresh herbs, local leaves and fruits which is steeped in a running bath. Some hotels offer visitors this therapeutic experience in their spas, including the Fern Tree Spa at Half Moon and the FieldSpa at Golden, with a menu of four different Healing Waters Bush Baths.

The Spa at Round Hill
Noted as one of the best spas in the Caribbean, The Spa at Round Hill promotes wellness, relaxation, and wholeness. A beachfront paradise of sublime relaxation with sweeping views of the sea, the Spa in Montego Bay features an extensive treatment menu focusing on natural and indigenous influences, a full-service, fully-renovated salon, a brand new, state-of-the-art fitness centre and open-air yoga pavilion and a relaxing pool to prolong your treatment bliss. Centre yourself with a transformative yoga class in the open- air pavilion or indulge in a seaside massage as you listen to the Caribbean waters lapping the shore.

Ocean Spa
Experience the healing touch of nature and the vibrancy of the Caribbean culture at the ocean spa. Nestled within the cliffs of Cutlass Bay, the Ocean Spa offers a tranquil outdoor setting. Their full treatment menu of spa services features treatments drawn from the plants of the island, sourced from local organic farmers and wild-gathered by environmentally sustainable methods.

Find your balance and lasting beauty with a treatment in one of their open-air spa rooms or upon request, in the privacy of your accommodation. After your treatment, sip iced Lemongrass tea on the deck while listening to the sound of waves against the cliff below, nap in the shade or take a dip in the sea.
