Zemi was the name given to the spirits worshipped by the Igneri, an Arawak-speaking people who inhabited these islands long before Europeans arrived. Through the Zemi – often symbolised through conch shells or stone idols – they communed with nature and their spirit world. Today our waterfront Zemi spa provides a nurturing space to reconnect your soul and revitalise your spirits through a series of signature massages and treatments, combining ancient wisdom with the latest techniques from around the world.
