You don’t have to be under a rock in some gloomy place to get away from it all. Setting the standard for luxury spa holiday, Laluna is up and away on a private hillside on the beautiful, tropical island of Grenada. Breathe in the fresh Caribbean Sea air while walking barefooted along one of Grenada’s most secluded beaches.

This genuine privacy and seclusion all adds to the rejuvenation and relaxation you experience from the pleasure-loving Asian Spa. Immerse yourself with treatments, massages and rituals from head to toe, literally and enjoy the luxury spa holiday! Start the day with a Balinese Head Massage and finish with a Lushly Feet Ritual.

Impress your friends back home with a new, diverse knowledge of yoga, learn varied practices; Kundalini, Vinyasa and Yin. Take advantage of the pure, natural beauty of the island from The Laluna’s very own yoga pavilion. Practise your new techniques while basking in the sun and looking out upon the organic tropical landscape of the stunning Grenada Island.

You just can’t get enough of the dazzling views of the Island, which is why Laluna has created each deluxe cottage with its own unique open air bathroom where you can look out upon the sensational resort of Laluna.

Get involved with the local landscape and hike or bike up its forested mountains, swim next to thundering waterfalls, kayak along the sea, dive into the Caribbean’s largest shipwreck ‘The Bianca C’, drift alongside beautiful marine life, charter your own boat or head out to catch your own dinner with Laluna’s ‘Fun at Sea’ package.

Prefer the comforts of your own usual activities? Laluna offers guests to enjoy the golf course and the tennis courts which are nearby.

Take yourself away from the noise, hustle and bustle, your phone and even your own home. Like Bernardo Bertucci, the owner, says “The absence of luxury is a luxury in itself”.

Benefits of a Spa Holiday

What’s not a benefit of a spa holiday?


Learn how to relax your muscles and your mind. Allow your tension to be worked out of you by reflexology or Abhayanga, a relaxing massage performed by two therapists.


Say goodbye to bloating and water retention and detox on a luxury spa break. Eat exquisite cuisine, exercise and bask in the natural beauty and calmness of the place your in.


Impress your friends with your new body and moves in yoga and Pilates and rid yourself of those daily aches and pains. Detox your mind daily at home with your new meditation skills, learn how to control your breathing which will strengthen your respiratory system as well as keeping you calm and distressed in any situation.

Healthy Ageing

Say no to the needle and retain your beauty with soothing facials and keep yourself looking ravishing for years to come.


Just one of the many benefits that you will bring home from your luxury spa break, start a good cycle; relaxation from spa break = good sleep = relaxation = good sleep = relaxation….

Be pampered

Now that your rejuvenated inside, it’s time to get you looking your best outside to fully complete your whole transformation. Manicures, pedicures…it all happens in the salons. After your hard day of being pampered, how about a nice relax in one of the hot tubs, saunas or steam showers?

By being detoxed, losing weight, learning to eat right, finding out about new, easy exercises will all add to your confidence in yourself; physically and mentally. Watch your self-esteem and confidence grow along with your knowledge of holistic therapies and how to treat yourself right.

When you leave a spa holiday, you don’t just take back the glowing tan and wonderful memories, you take back new inspiration on how to live your life for you.

Not bad for a holiday break…
