THE ultimate holistic wellness experience is coming to The Bahamas.
Bamford, a UK-based brand of natural body, bath, baby and home products, will be a part of the Island House (TIH), a boutique hotel soon to open in western Nassau.
The spa at TIH, which will offer individual crafted treatments and botanical products made from organic ingredients, will be the first Bamford Spa to be located outside of Europe.
“We could not be more excited to announce this partnership with Bamford, a brand that is synonymous with holistic wellness,” said TIH project director Lauren Holowesko.
“The spa will be a calming, invigorating retreat unlike anything offered in the Bahamas. We see it as a centrepiece of the property, the embodiment of our commitment to nature, simplicity and quality.”
Founded by Carole Lady Bamford in 2006, the award-winning Bamford brand is a reflection of her passion for holistic natural living, traditional skills and craftsmanship. The clothing and beauty company offers seasonal collections in natural fabrics and pure, artisan made bath, body, baby and home products.
The Bamford Body Collection will be the product line used throughout the hotel and will form the basis of a range of beauty, massage and therapeutic treatments offered at the spa.
“Bamford is delighted to be partnering with The Island House, whose belief in holistic well-being is so closely aligned with our own,” a spokesperson said. “The Island House has created a beautiful environment where guests can experience Bamford treatments that balance mind, body and spirit. This sense of wellbeing continues through Bamford’s natural and organic offering within The Island House bedroom suites. A truly wonderful addition to the Bamford partnerships.”
The spa at TIH will be the main feature of a comprehensive wellness space at the heart of the property.
The focus on wellness is just part of what will make TIH will stand out among Nassau resorts, Mrs Holowesko said.
“We want to offer our guests an inmate and authentic experience they can’t find in the bigger, more mainstream resorts; one that merges the height of contemporary luxury with the unaffected elegance of authentic island life,” she said.
“At the same time, we want TIH to become a cultural gathering space. Our 48-seat cinema will be open to the community and will feature mainstream but also art house films and independent Caribbean productions. The space is versatile and can also play host to art exhibitions, seminars, and speaking events.
“Our ongoing call for artwork submissions aims to highlight young and emerging Bahamian talent as well as established local masters, the aim being to feature original work throughout the property, including the guest rooms.”
The property will feature six rental apartments, two restaurants, a cafe, spa, gym, squash and paddle courts, and movement studio for fitness classes.
