The Spa
The state-of-the-art 12,400 square foot spa designed by Sarah Garcia, a renowned Dominican architect, features 10 tranquil therapy room and three outdoor oceanfront treatment gazebos set over a tropical pond with soothing waterfalls. The indoor treatment rooms include two private couples therapy rooms with couple Jacuzzis and terraces facing the ocean.

When designing the spa, Garcia studied the ancient practice of Feng Shui. The name "Bagua" comes from a concept of Feng Shui. The Bagua is traditionally represented in the shape of an octagon. Each facet of the octagon is called a "gua" and is assigned at least one of life's aspects, such as Prosperity, Family, Career Path and Life Path, etc.

The Bagua Spa at Casa Colonial was designed according to the guidelines of the Bagua to create a serene sanctuary where guests can find harmony and clarity.

Indigenous Therapies
The Bagua Spa, which is set amidst the golden beaches and lush mountain ranges of the Dominican republic 's glittering Amber Coast , features unique therapies that incorporate minerals and tropical plant extracts indigenous to the area. The Dominican Republic 's natural and healing elements including gemstone Amber, Royal Bee Jelly, Honey and Ocean Water characterize the Bagua Spa experience.

The Amber Coast is home to the richest deposits of amber in the world. Amber, which is a stone comprised of petrified pine tree sap that is millions of years old, has been known to have strong healing powers and is able to absorb negative energy to help the body heal itself. A virtual youth elixir, an ingredient in Amber's resin is found to slow down the aging process. It is a powerful anti oxidant and anti bacterial agent, augmenting mental clarity and alleviating depression. For centuries it has been used in amulets and jewelry for protection. Amber carries a negative ion charge improving resistance to stress and neutralizes harmful radioactive waves.

The island's Honey Bees contribute to our Healing and Beauty rituals. Royal Jelly, rich in amino acids, and minerals has been hailed for its rejuvenating effects. Propolis boosts the immune system and honey softens and beautifies the skin. Significantly, 'The Bee' is 'Honey Meade', the Nectar of the gods. For centuries newly wed couples union would sip on Honey Meade to ensure the promise fertility.

The ocean is the source of life, and the source of spa. The ocean's chemical composition mirrors our own fluid body and we harness its nutrients to replenish ourselves.

It is the combination of natural agents of amber, royal jelly, honey and ocean water that the alchemy of spa is realized.
