British Virgin Islands

What could be more sensuous than a palapa-roofed spa cabana at the edge of a hilltop overlooking the sea? Peter Island Resort is a private island retreat in the British Virgin Islands comprised of 52 rooms, plus a marina and three villas. From a hibiscus-bordered road that passes one of the resort's five palm-shaded beaches, you'll reach the 10,000-foot open-air spa, featuring tropical gardens, palm groves and a glamorous spa pool and whirlpool. A narrow path leads to one of two bohios decked with wood beams and slatted shutters, with chaise lounges, treatment tables and ceramic steps that lead to the raised whirlpool tub. Outside, one path leads to an idyllic open-air shower, and another to a sunning terrace-for-two and an outdoor soaking tub perched above the secluded sandy beach and overlooking Big Reef Bay. The three-hour Seaside Escape treatment includes 75- or 90-minute massages, a tropical hand and foot facial, plus time for sunning, soaking and savoring a gourmet picnic. Couples looking to try something new should opt for an Ayurvedic treatment in one of the resort's special spa suites, which promotes detoxification, rejuvenation and longevity. Hey, the longer you live, the more love you'll receive.
