Yarari Spa, Agua Resort and Spa, Uvero Alto

Tel: 809-468-0000

Taking its name from the Taíno word for beautiful, the Yarari Spa at the Agua Resort and Spa in Uvero Alto proves that small is beautiful. The thatched-roof main spa building, smelling of cinnamon and orange oil, houses a hydrotherapy tub, pulsating water chaises, a sauna, and an ice fountain. Five treatment rooms include one for couples and one with a Vichy shower. The Caribbean Cooler regimen ($135) is a scrub of aloe, shredded cucumber, and yogurt, after which you're wrapped in towels and a plastic sheet to intensify the cooling properties. Meanwhile, the therapist rubs eucalyptus oil on her hands and cups them over your nose as you breathe deeply (massages, $85–$115).
