Largest Resort Spa on Ambergris Caye Set to Open

Known for its stunning beachfront location, personal service and luxurious accommodations, award winning Victoria House on the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize, plans to open the doors to its full service spa and fitness facility in May, 2016.

“We’re delighted with the result – everything has come together better than we could have hoped for, and we can’t wait to share the new spa with our guests,” says Brent Kirkman, General Manager of Victoria House. “This is something our guests have been looking for, waiting for, and anticipating and we’re so proud that it’s finally here.”

The spa, fitness and wellness facility, at 3,500 sq. ft., will be the largest of its kind on Ambergris Caye. Styled in a Caribbean plantation/colonial theme, the new building of white stucco and chocolate brown shutters, is set in a tropical garden with coconut palms, Flamboyants and Bougainvilleas creating a serene and therapeutic atmosphere.

“Part of Victoria House’s appeal is our magnificent beachfront location on Ambergris Caye, and our grounds are truly a work of art,” says Janet Woollam, Managing Director of Victoria House. “We want to bring that beauty, sense of space, peace and serenity to the new spa and we were able to do that.”

The new spa and wellness facility will feature a 26 ft. high central Cupola, with 11 ft. high ceilings, hardwood floors and ample windows for natural light throughout. There will be four treatment salons, including a VIP couple’s salon, and three with French doors which open to private, enclosed courtyards allowing for outdoor massages along with outdoor showers and hammocks. Pedicures, manicures, body treatments, facials, Swedish, sport, and rehabilitative massages and special Maya-inspired herbal therapies will be offered in the treatment rooms.

“These rooms are very special, and they have come together beautifully,” says Woollam. “We’ll be able to offer our guests a level of service never before found in this part of Belize.”

A 500 sq. ft. fully equipped fitness centre with flat screen televisions will also be part of the new facility, along with separate locker and shower rooms for men and women, a reception and spa area with a full range of spa products, a relaxation room with recliner seating, and a large enclosed courtyard that can facilitate small Yoga group classes.

While the spa will be open to receive guests in late May of this year, a grand opening is anticipated later in the year.

Wellness and pampering at the new Victoria House Spa

How do you improve on perfection? For over 30 years, the award-winning Victoria House Resort on Ambergris Caye has set the standard for intimate, luxurious accommodations. Nestled on a gorgeous beachfront, with white Caribbean colonial buildings and lush landscapes, this island escape also features an elegant restaurant and cozy beachside bar. It’s the ideal romantic getaway, and the ultimate relaxation destination. With every attention to detail met, there was only one thing a miss…a splendid spa.

The stunning new spa is the largest of its kind on the island, and perfectly complements the colonial architecture of the resort. With impressive high ceilings, hardwood floors and abundant windows, the area is awash in warm sunlight. The soft sound of meditative music permeates the air and the serene setting quickly lulls you into the relaxation mode. Spanning an impressive 3,500 square feet, the new facility features four treatment salons, including a couple’s salon. Three of the rooms open to a private, natural courtyard complete with outside showers.

Wellness specialist and manager of Victoria House Spa, Jennifer Ingvoldstad, greeted us during our visit, and told us that they are proud to use locally sourced ingredients such as coconut oil, sugar, honey, hibiscus flowers and essential oils in their treatments. These wonderful remedies will also be a line of products that will soon be available for purchase at the spa.

From massages to manicures, polishes to pedicures, their team of ten massage therapists and estheticians offer more than 36 body and beauty treatments, including rejuvenating spa services such as body wraps and scrubs, facials, tinting, waxing, wellness rituals, masques and more. They even offer treatments specifically for brides, bridal parties, couples and expectant mothers. For those who don’t want to miss their workout while on vacation (which means guilt-free indulging at their Palmilla Restaurant), the spa includes a spacious, fully equipped fitness center with separate shower rooms for men and women, and a large enclosed courtyard where yoga classes are held.
