The Spa at Samsara
We pamper you like we do everything else – simply and naturally. The way we see it, there's no room more beautiful than the sea, sun, and palm trees; no sound more soothing than waves breaking against our cliffs; and no scent more intoxicating than wild island flowers.
That's why we made our spa an open air, seafront cabana where Lesia works her magic on you with a collection of body, face, and nail treatments selected for their wellness and beauty enhancing virtues. Of course, if you prefer, you can have any treatment in your room. Just take your pick, close your eyes, and let go.
In-Room Option: Choose from any of our treatments and have the luxury of private in-room service for a small surcharge.
Full Body Swedish
Swedish Massage is the most common type of relaxation massage. This technique uses gentle strokes and varying pressures to release tension patterns in the muscle and tissues caused by stress. Depending upon individual preference, pressure can vary from light to strong. This is combined with passive and active movements of the joints. This form of soothing therapy promotes general relaxation, improves blood circulation, range of motion, and provides relief from muscle tension. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin begins a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body.
Full Body Deep Tissue
Deep Tissue Massage targets chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the surface of your body. Muscles that are stressed will block oxygen and nutrients, storing toxins in the muscle tissue. Deep Tissue Massage will get to the core of the problem by working intensely on the muscles and connective tissue to free toxins and restore circulation of blood and oxygen. The therapist will use slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. Remember, with the release of toxins it is important to properly hydrate the body to flush out and eliminate those toxins.
Japanese Hot Stones
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat from the stones relaxes muscles, increase the blood flow to the area being worked on which further accelerates the healing process. This increase in circulation and the relaxation of the muscles also aids in mental relaxation. The client can request light, medium or deep pressure, which is the beauty of the hot stone massage technique.
One of our most popular services, couples massage, is perfect for the couple or friends celebrating a special occasion, holiday, or "just because." Getting a massage with someone you know is a wonderful experience, and for first timers it usually removes any anxiety about massage because someone they trust is in the room with them. The couple will receive their massages simultaneously by two different therapists working at the same time. This is an excellent way for a couple or friends to enjoy some quality time together relaxing while getting totally pampered. Enhance with a bottle of champagne and/or make this a moonlight massage (additional cost).
A dreamy, pleasurably exotic and romantic massage on the Negril Cliffs enhanced by a fine bottle of champagne (optional). This is a one hour full body massage done after dark under the tropical starry skies, in Swedish technique for ultimate relaxation and pleasant dreams. May be done as a Couples Massage as well. Allow 24 hours notice for this treatment.
4 Hands Ultra Massage

Meaning you receive double the relaxation and tension relief in half the time...it's like getting a 2 hour massage in 1 hour!!! Four Hand Massage involves two massage therapists massaging you at the same time and can be performed in several different fashions:
- Mirroring - one therapist takes the lead and the other therapist does the same work on the opposite side of the body.
- Upper Body & Lower Body Work - one therapist will work on your upper body and the other therapist will work on your lower body.

Facelift Massage is a very specialized form of massage therapy which will improve the muscle tissue and promote conditioned facial muscles to reduce sagging skin and improve muscle tone. The process is a pampering, relaxing massage that will improve the appearance of the face by stimulating the underlying layers of skin and soft tissue. This will make surface wrinkles less visible, slow down the formation of new wrinkles, and will help keep facial muscles toned. Elasticity, firmness, and tone are greatly improved with this massage.
Reflexology / Therapeutic Foot Massage
Reflexology is much more than a deep, relaxing foot massage. It is an acupressure type technique applied to the hands and feet and is based on an ancient Oriental theory that meridian lines carry energy throughout the body. Each part of the body has a corresponding “reflex” point on the feet. By applying pressure to those reflex points, your therapist can cause stimulation in the natural energy of the related organ. This pressure will clear out congestion and restore normal functioning and health.
Back Relaxation Treatment
A 30 minute therapy designed to specifically target the back muscles to relieve tension in the neck, shoulder, spine and lumbar region. This is a wonderful treatment for those persons who require a short and pleasant relief from back muscle tension.
Hair, Skin and Nail Treatments
Aloe Vera After-Sun Treatment
Aloe Vera has been used since ancient times to promote skin healing and rejuvenation of skin cells. Its properties are famous for producing softer and healthier skin, particularly useful on sunburns and after tanning under the tropical sun. Freshly blended and locally produced Aloe Vera gel is gently rubbed on the skin over the whole body using soothing massage strokes. It is normal to feel a slight stinging sensation as the Aloe Vera goes to work on your skin. This will pass in a few moments leaving your skin feeling renewed and refreshed. It can also prolong sun tans and reduce redness from sun burns.
