Prince Siddhartha left his kingdom and material possessions to search for spiritual enlightenment. His love for humanity and desire to see a world where we are all spiritual equals, led him to the belief that enlightenment cannot exist without love, and Siddhartha realized that he must accept love in order to achieve Nirvana…
Now couples traveling to Hermitage Bay can find their own personal nirvana with the resort’s new Dorissima signature SIDDHARTHA rituals. Perfect for honeymooners celebrating their new love or for couples looking to keep the spark alive, these rituals use aphrodisiacs such Vanilla, Tonka and Grapefruit and are specially designed to stimulate the senses and relax the body.
The Art of Love Treatment
The “Art of Love” treatment ritual is performed in the guest’s suite and uses the Dorissima Siddhartha line of aphrodisiac spa products. Begin the 2½ hour treatment with a decadent foot cleansing ritual with warm aromatic waters to cleanse and Himalayan salts to smooth and purify. In preparation of the romantic spa journey, divine Siddhartha tea is served before the ritual. Upon completion, couples can enjoy a glass of champagne together on the verandah overlooking the gardens while warm tropical breezes and breathtaking views of the azure Caribbean waters soothe couples into a further sense of bliss. Prices for this treatment begin at $650 USD.
