Islamorada’s Cheeca Lodge & Spa has gone green. Everywhere!

Not only have the owners reinterpreted the resort’s more than 60-year old traditions into a green resort, but has equipped the new 5,700-square-foot spa with organic sustainable luxury.

New treatments at the Spa at Cheeca use the purest and highest quality of sophisticated beauty products available from sustainable farms and fair trade sources, including the world’s first range of certified organic, hand-harvested seaweed based products, luxurious organic vegan products for body, feet, hands and nails; a holistic botanical skincare line, and the first mineral-based, allergen-free cosmetic collection originally designed for post-cosmetic surgery.

To promote healing of the mind, body and spirit guests can enjoy custom organic facials, revitalizing massage and body treatments and Calusa Healing, among other techniques that combine neuromuscular, myofacial, Thai and sports massage techniques. Prior to each treatment, guests are treated to footbaths in healing copper bowls in the spa’s Ritual Room.

Guests can also enjoy a variety of relaxing, detoxifying, mineralizing and skin-softening spa baths available in-suite in the terrace open-air bathtubs for two, a signature feature of the resort’s new Premier Spa Suites.

Poolside cabanas, a Tahitian-style Spa Lagoon, an adults-only lap pool and secluded oasis Jacuzzi, as well as an outdoor sundeck provide a perfect setting for post-treatment lounging. 

Private yoga and Pilates sessions, personal training, acupuncture, Naturopathic Physician and nutritional consultations and wellness coaching are also available at the Spa.

Relax, indulge and celebrate nature …
