The Best Spa Aboard A Luxury Cruise Ship


The Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm, aboard the Paul Gauguin in the South Pacific, is a haven of relaxation and peace in what is already a haven of relaxation and peace. One might wonder how you can relax even more when you’re cruising the French Polynesian islands that offer unspoiled beaches, crystal clear waters and swaying palms with no one else for miles. Let me tell you, it’s possible.


Inside the spa, Paul Gauguin has designed a refuge for those looking to treat themselves to a little something extra on their holiday. After a long flight, there is nothing better than walking-in to this space for a 90-minute massage. Using traditional Polynesian techniques and ingredients like Manoi oil, vanilla and sea salt – the spa specializes in skin and body care that has the ability to help “reset” you.


The spa utilizes high-end skincare brands like Algotherm. Paying special attention to your needs, therapists customize treatments to suit you. After a massage here, I was rejuvenated and realigned after my 15-hour journey to Tahiti. It’s a must for anyone cruising with Paul Gauguin.
