The following morning, a little fatigued and with the joys of last night’s celebrations still clearly imprinted within our minds, His Highness took breakfast on the restaurant terrace.  Knowing how delicate The Prince might be feeling, I chose a selection of items from the buffet that might tempt him, and tempt him they did.  Before long we were chatting away and His Highness was more than ready for the spa recovery package which I had organised. 

Although modest in size this hotel has intelligently teamed up with ibizabalance.com to offer a selection of spa treatments which can be ‘hired in’ and carried out within one’s bedroom or if one prefers, on the stunning roof terrace. This service is definitely worth planning ahead for and His Highness was eager to begin a ST. BARTH HARMONY pampering full body massage as soon as possible. 

Combined with Thai stretches to improve ones flexibility The Prince was offered a choice of oils and considering we were in a particularly hot climate His Highness opted for the slightly warmed coconut oil.  It wasn’t long before His Highness drifted away, perhaps dreaming of the Caribbean’s Necker Island, certainly whilst lounging on the Ocean Drive’s roof terrace, one could be anywhere.

I was suddenly brought back to reality as the masseur came towards the end of the massage and offered His Highness a choice of body lotions; cold-pressed avocado oil and the fragrance of pure bourbon vanilla, the Caribbean tiaré flower or the especially feminine scent of the lily. This was exactly what The Prince needed and whilst His Highness was left to snooze, I decided that perhaps the ST. BARTH FRESHNESS Facial and Décolleté Treatment with Hand Massage would be worth experiencing too. Savouring the gentle fresh fragrances I looked across at His Highness who was no doubt dreaming of his next adventure, allowing me to sit back and enjoy a glass of chilled Cava.

Later that day and all too soon we were heading for the airport.  His Highness has stayed at many of the world’s finest hotels across the planet and he has often expressed an opinion “it’s never the size of the hotel welcome pack which gives one reason to return but rather the way in which one is welcomed throughout ones stay”. Having stayed for one night at The Ocean Drive Hotel, I can safely say this particular hotel has got it right.
