The Treatment: Nikki Spa Signature Drifter
The Downtime: 120 minutes
The Lowdown: It would be understandable, upon arriving at Nikki Beach Resort, that you instantly decide you’d like to move in. Cool, calm, contemporary, and perched upon a beautiful stretch of white sand, Nikki Beach creates the kind of vibe that makes you want to waft around in white linen listening to chill-out music forever. Add a magnificent spa to this blissful, boho deluxe bolthole, and suddenly, we have a problem. We’re actually not sure if we ever want to leave.
The Pampering: It starts the moment you walk in the door. After you’ve enjoyed a signature wellbeing mocktail (Cosmo recommends the green tea apple martini) we changed into a cosy grey robe before being lead into a stunning, minimalist treatment room, flooded with natural light. Choosing the signature drifter treatment, we were indulged with two hours of unadulterated bliss. Kicking off with a cleansing foot ritual, after our therapist thoroughly analysed our skin, a personalised facial addressing all of our skincare woes began. Using an array of luxurious, hand-selected Espa products combined to deep-cleanse, lift and revitalise, feeling fresher and younger looking, it was time for a stress-busting massage, again personalised to pinpoint every nagging knot. Concentrating our perennially problematic shoulders and sore lower back, after a combination of masterful Swedish and Thaistyle massage, as our two-hour journey came to a close, we felt literally lighter than air and glowing with health. Unmissable.
