How to achieve the ultimate spa day in Vanuatu

Vacations are all about getting away from the stresses of everyday life and partaking in a little R and R. But adventurous spirits know that holidays can turn into a bit of a run around when you're trying to fit in all the exploring that comes with visiting a new city. So sometimes, even those with the best intentions of taking it easy end up feeling just as tired at the end of their trip as they did when they started.

With this in mind, we think that it's time to be a little more proactive about your much-needed respite on your next trip to Vanuatu. Do all the exploring you want and then on the last day be sure to book yourself a day to sit back and relax. You're on a tropical island, so we probably don't have to twist your arm too much to get you to take a day to yourself.

Don't stress about finding all the spa details - we've already done all the hard work for you. Just read up on how to achieve the ultimate spa day in Vanuatu!

Spa packages galore

Vanuatu has everything from professional spas to natural hot springs, so it's perfect for all budgets. Unwind and re-energise yourself with one of the island's relaxing, earthy massages. There's no stress that professional masseuses can't get out of your tight muscles! Some of these spa packages even use the elements of the volcanoes. Experience everything from volcanic ash body scrubs to volcanic hot stone massages.

Of course, if you want a cheaper option, you could head to one of the island's natural hot springs like the Nasinu Hot Springs. Take in the last bit of freedom and soak the day away in a silky mud bath. You can make your own scrub with the mud at the bottom of the spring, and you'll leave with your skin feel ultra soft.

Pick up some sandalwood 

There are two things that should be synonymous with the soothing scent of sandalwood: Vanuatu and relaxation. Sandalwood essential oils have a variety of soothing properties that can help the whole body relax. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, diuretic, sedative and emollient. Once inhaled, it has the power to dilute feelings of stress, and create a feeling of calmness. Just what you need on your last day in paradise!

There you have it! We bet you're feeling just a little bit more relaxed already, aren't you?
