One Ocean Resort & Spa
Beginning in July, One Ocean Resort & Spa guests can enjoy the “Vanda Orchid Body Bliss.” While the sensuous aroma of vibrant Vanda orchids envelops the senses, a gentle orchid polish of white, red and green tea extracts along with goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts sweep away impurities, allowing powerful antioxidants to penetrate the skin. The fruit components alone improve circulation and boost energy levels. The package also features an oil scalp massage followed by a Vanda orchid cream kneaded over the body, hydrating and leaving skin soft and revitalized. Offered through Sept. 30, the experience is a 75-minute treatment that costs $215, including gratuity. For more information, visit or call (904) 249-7402
