The Southern Orchards spa-only package starts with a soak in a tub on a private veranda. Your tub overlooks a bird rookery on conservation land in a freshwater estuary and the sounds of the birds surround you as you soak. ' Nectar Milk' is poured into your tub and when they hand you a special concoction to drink, the Blood Orange Breeze, you are alone, out in the altogether, just you and nature. Following the soak, you'll be exfoliated with a Citrus Grass salt scrub and cocooned in Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard. Yes, it is custard!
The 30-minute Custard Massage is last Southern touch in your orchard experience. It's $300 for 120-minutes for one person. Wanna stay overnight? Rates for a Forest View or Lagoon View Cottage begin at $425 for two; upgrade to a River View Cottage and rates are $510 for a weekday stay right now. No minimum stay required.
