Hot List 2009

Boutique Spa by Carita

Tel: 866-297-2153

A bastion of French style on St. Barts, Carita is no mega-spa; the 2,000-square-foot ville d'eau is diminutively chic, from muted gray private dressing rooms to a theatrically lit double hammam. Plan an hour to cruise the maze of showers, steam rooms, and Jacuzzis before being collected by your masseuse cum model, who will douse you in orange-scented oils during the hour-long signature Carl Gustaf Relaxing Massage, a deep, tension-eliminating rubdown. The two treatment rooms are cozy compared with the spa's spare communal area, and heated beds are maneuvered electronically, so you won't be disturbed during a session's deep kneads. Stretch the limits of your high school French with the English-averse staff, who are refreshingly slow to push pricey Carita products onto even the most susceptible guests.
