Surrounded by heavenly smells, exotic island textures, and natural sounds I could spend my whole vacation soaking up the carefully curated details in Spa Botanico's luxurious spa escape.
After waltzing through a delicate curtain of lavender and dried flower bouquets of the Apothecary Room—an entrance I adored by biking past several times to catch a whiff of the calming scents (aka "ride-by smelling")—Spa Botanico at the Dorado Beach Ritz-Carlton is a little like stepping into a grotto.
The Apothecary Room opens up to a terrace of green ivy and flowers separated by a reflection pool. The Shade Room is where you're greeted and escorted to begin your unique spa experience on 5 acres of beautiful tropical land. Why yes, I would love to sip on the house specialty pomegranate tea, freshly brewed this morning and awaiting my hands and lips. And yes, thank you I will slip into this soft cotton sarong and gaze at the sculpted, manicured herb garden before my therapist arrives.
Come for a treatment, stay all day. Trust me, you'll want the entire day to yourself. Right. Here.
