Nature Spa

There isn’t much to do on Little Cayman apart from relax or dive, so it’s a thrill to find there’s a spa. In perfect proportion to the size of the island, which is just 10 miles long and a mile wide, the spa is tiny too.

Aptly named Nature Spa, it is part of Little Cayman Beach Resort but located across the road on the edge of a bird reserve that has the largest breeding colony of red-footed boobies in the Caribbean. You can sit outside on the deck before or after a treatment and soak up the tranquility, or watch the boobies fish in the pond opposite the spa’s big picture windows.

The spa is housed in a cottage built in the traditional Caymanian style but the treatments are far from old-fashioned. The sole therapist Lara Pullan is, in fact, an Aveda practitioner, and has all sorts of delightful massage and beauty treatments to soothe the soul. She qualified at the Aveda Institute, Florida, and says her treatments are not ‘cookie cut,’ but integrated techniques to suit the client.

Laura is also a diver so has found herself popular with the scuba crowd as she knows exactly where to find their aches and pains. She can combine deep tissue and Swedish massage as well as working on the pressure and trigger points, or practise relaxation tricks such as a scalp massage which will have you melting in a moment.

Then there is the choice of hot stones, reflexology, facials, waxing and nail treatments to indulge in. Best of all, you are likely to be the only client at the spa during your treatment, so you will have complete privacy.

  • Telephone in advance or pop into the Little Cayman Beach Resort to make an appointment.
  • After undergoing a full renovation, Nature Spa has re-opened, more gorgeous than before.
