Detoxify the Body at the Dominican Republic’s Top Organic Spa
Barahona, DR - Nestled in the Dominican Republic’s pristine southwestern Bahoruco Forest, Casa Bonita Tropical Lodge’s Tanama Eco Spa is offering brand new Temazcal Taino Steam Baths to detoxify the body and clear the mind. Designed to awaken the senses in accordance with nature, the mystical treatments are ideal for spa enthusiasts seeking a relaxing escape into ancient prehispanic cultural tradition.
Made of rustic natural materials and situated in a serene jungle oasis, the spa’s new Temazcal igloo shaped structure represents the womb of mother earth. Within the structure, the cleansing ceremony incorporates the four elements - earth, air, water and fire - to purify and harmonize the mind, body and spirit in line with ancient techniques.
During the ceremony copal incense and herbs are placed on vibrant red volcanic rock. Participants in the ceremony sit in a circle within the Temazcal, where the herbal steam from the hot rock begins a process of purification through perspiration. At the completion of each treatment, guests emerge renewed with the Temazcal eliminating uric, lactic and alkaline acid from the blood stream and balancing the body’s PH levels.
The romantic Tanama Eco Spa treats guests to an all-encompassing jungle experience unrivaled in the Dominican Republic. With its new Temazcal structure seamlessly nestled on the unspoiled riverfront, Casa Bonita is offering spa enthusiasts two new Taino Steam Bath treatments meant to transport the guest into the heart of mother earth.
This soothing treatment begins with an aroma therapy session inside the steaming Temazcal. Seasonal local herbs such as Rosemary, lemon, noni leaves, orange leaves, basil and guayuyo leaves are placed on the volcanic stones, infusing the air as you enjoy a relaxing massage and scalp treatment.
Duration: 60 minutes / Cost: $75
Organic ingredients such as coffee and cacao enrich the Temazcal steam with rich antioxidants and nutritional benefits during this cleansing therapy. The treatment culminates with a clay massage, which hydrates the skin as the sound of the river lulls the guest to a state of pure relaxation.
Duration: 90 minutes / Price: $110
