NEWPORT, RI, September 2006 – It may be time to coin a new phrase called "villspa," an opportunity to remain luxuriously sequestered in a private villa while enjoying the most soul rejuvenating spa experiences.
Wimco, the Newport, RI, villa rental and hotel reservations company, offers five villas in its portfolio of 200+ villas in St Barts that have specially designated and equipped on-premise facilities for the ultimate in spa and massage services provided by St Barth Spa, the treatment division of Le Ligne St Barth. Treatment menus can be viewed on line at www.lignestbarth.com. Le Ligne St Barth is an island-based company whose creams and lotions can be purchased locally as well as at London's Fortnum & Mason.
In most other St. Barts villas represented by Wimco, a St Barth Spa specialist will bring a massage table that can be set up for a poolside treatment or inside the villa.
The premiere example of the 'villspa' spa style is the opulent Palladian-style six-bedroom villa Bon Temps (villa code SIB BTR). This stunning villa sits on a hillside on the west side of Pointe Milou with broad sunset views of Chevreaux, Fourchue, Toc Vers, St Martin and Anguilla. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the house is decorated in white, soft greens and blues with hand-painted tile lounge banquettes on the terrace, custom mosaic floors in the living area and limestone floors throughout the bedrooms and terraces. All six bedrooms have equal amenities including high ceilings, stone-tiled bathrooms and ocean views. Two have private terraces and outdoor showers. The in-villa spa is on the lower level within an air-conditioned fitness area.
The four other villas in St Barts that have a dedicated on-site spa area with spa equipment are SIB THI, SIB TAL, SIB MAC and SIB FGO.
In addition to booking villas, spa treatments and air tickets, Wimco's reservations staff are happy to book rental cars, boat charters, provision the villa, arrange for babysitters and make dinner reservations. To book a villa with a spa on St. Barts, please call 1-800-932-3222.
