We use ingredients from our garden—think coffee, coconut, mango, seaweed and aloe—to make our own Driftwood Spa products. No surprise that, like Jakes, the locally-grown ethos informs everything we do.
mbracing Jamaica’s long tradition of nurturing and healing, Driftwood Spa draws fresh ingredients from Jakes gardens. Located at the corner of the Jakes property, the Driftwood Spa bumps right up against the sea, with open-air treatment rooms that let in the ocean breeze. All our spa services begin with a cool refreshing towel infused with Driftwood Spa’s own signature scent, signaling that you’ve entered a special place.
We offer daily yoga sessions as well as customizable yoga retreats.
When I first started working on the spa, I did some informal research—and some of the best places I went to had their treatments in these dark, cramped rooms. I felt like, why would you do that? We’re in the Caribbean; we’re right on the water, with gorgeous weather. So we set out to create an area where you could relax and enjoy exactly where you are, with the sea breeze washing over you, the sounds of the ocean, the sounds of the birds. You could have a seaside massage or scrub or wrap, and then get cheeky (no pun intended) in the outdoor shower afterwards.
Laura Henzell’s ideal day at the Driftwood Spa: “I’d start the morning with a yoga class with Empress overlooking the sea, with pelicans going by, waves lapping at the shore. I’d then get a coffee-brown sugar scrub—very invigorating—followed by an aromatherapy massage with rejuvenating oil. And in between, I’d have a very freeing shower in the outdoor shower downstairs.”

SHIRLEY’S MASSAGE AND HERBAL STEAM BATH AT ZAREEBA
Shirley was born and raised in Great Bay—she has been a practicing herbalist with an excellent reputation for many years. Part of her massage therapy is to begin with an herbal steam bath—what is essentially a real old-fashioned Jamaican bush bath. She has built a steam closet and perfected a method of steaming herbs in deep clay pot that allows the heat to stay constant and intense. It is an amazing cleansing experience that receives rave reviews from Jakes most sophisticated guests, and can be blissfully followed by Shirley’s therapeutic massage.
