Paying attention to the details, their spa rituals use the all natural and award-winning Welsh brand, Tribe517.Each treatment room has an open fire and there’s a ‘tribal rite’ sequence for each therapy. In this you have powder dusted to your toes, a chime concludes your treatment and at the very end, a love link ribbon bestowed upon each guest. A love link is where they wrap a ribbon around your ring finger that is dipped in mandarin oil. You take a deep breath in from ribbon and then put your hand on your heart and think of things that are dear to you.
