Carlisle Bay Antigua Introduces New ISLAND BATHING Wellness Experience


Island Bathing is the latest wellness experience designed to help restore inner peace while travelling.


Move over Forest Bathing – Island Bathing is the latest wellness experience designed to help restore inner peace while travelling. Luxury Antigua resort Carlisle Bay is pioneering this breakthrough new offering, which harnesses the power of the ocean, negative ions and the beauty of the Caribbean to help guests reset, recharge and uplift.

Available exclusively at Carlisle Bay, “Island Bathing” is a new meditative wellness experience that connects guests with nature and improves mood. Guests are transported via private boat to a secluded and deserted island, where a wellness master will lead them through guided meditation and breath work surrounded by the calming sound of gently breaking waves, rustling palms and fragrant Caribbean breezes.

The service is available at sunrise or sunset, allowing guests to welcome the day on a peaceful note, or reflect as the day ends.  An alternative to traditional shinrin-yoku, or Forest Bathing, Island Bathing can be a powerful mood booster. Research from Columbia University in New York has shown the pounding surf creates negative ions in the air, which can help enhance mood, stimulate senses, increase oxygen absorption and even boost resistance to disease.
