Vonu is the Fijian name for turtle, and these majestic creatures infuse serenity and peace into the surroundings of both the island and the new spa. The spa itself is nestled along Turtle Island's famed Blue Lagoon, capturing the gentle breezes that blow from the South Pacific. The new spa features two treatment rooms, for couples or singles, and caters to guests wishing to enhance their already luxurious and pampering resort experience.
“The addition of a spa truly completes the romantic, relaxing experience that is Turtle Island,” said Richard Evanson, owner of Turtle Island. “A tremendous amount of thought went into creating the perfect Fijian spa, from its beautiful and serene location on the Blue Lagoon, to the products and treatments indigenous to the islands. We know our guests' expectations will be exceeded when they try the new Vonu Spa.”
Keeping true to the sustainable history of Turtle Island, the spa itself is constructed of hardwood grown mostly on the island, and crafted by local Fijian artisans and woodworkers to maintain an authentic Fijian look and feel. The spa features a meditative Zen water garden for peaceful relaxation, as well as a gorgeous veranda with loungers overlooking the Blue Lagoon where couples can bask in the glow of their spa treatment while sipping champagne or tea.
Another important feature of the spa, given the popularity of the resort as a wedding destination, is a dedicated bridal preparation room. Wedding day services for brides include romantic up-do's, manicure and pedicure, makeup for the glowing bride, and of course, indulgent spa treatments.
The Vonu Spa uses Pure Fiji products which highlight the wonderful healing powers of native plants, herbs and fruits such as coconut, orange blossom, passionflower, starfruit, white gingerlily and more. The signature treatment for Vonu Spa is a traditional Fijian Bobo massage, which is an indigenous technique passed down to generations of Fijian women to promote healing and rejuvenation. Other wonderful treatments include sports massage, four-handed lomi-lomi relaxation massage and reflexology treatments. All treatments are available to singles or couples.
