SpaPolynesia LUXE @ Lime Blossom Villa

The Legend of How the Moon Regains Her Brightness 

It is said that somewhere in a serene and secret corner of Polynesia lie Te-Vai-ora-a-Tane, the Living Waters of Tane. This is the sacred spring of one of the chief gods of ancient Polynesia, Tane, the God of Light and of Fertility. In these divine waters the weary find renewed strength, the sick are healed. Even Marama herself, the Moon, when wasted in waning, bathed and gained new brightness, entering the Living Waters as Ina-uri (Dark Moon) yet emerging as Ina-ka (Moon Glow). Here at SpaPolynesia LUXE @ Lime Blossom Villa we embrace this inspiring ancient legend and its message of renewal and rejuvenation as we work with your own inner wellspring to revive and refresh. 

SpaPolynesia LUXE @ Lime Blossom Villa is the Cook Islands' only destination spa. Located in a stunning, completely transformed historic villa, it oozes luxury and true South Pacific pampering. Indulge in a beautiful range of tropical-themed spa therapies from the healing touch of massage to relaxing spa hydrotherapy, deeply-moisturing spa facials, body scrubs, body wraps, spa manicures, spa pedicures and more.

As you enter SpaPolynesia LUXE you will see images of  the original limestone and coral homestead, once the home of renowned seafarer Captain Andy Thomson, skipper of the Tiare Taporo (the Tahitian words for Lime Blossom), a famous trading schooner which ploughed the waters between the islands and New Zealand in the 40s and 50s. You will also see an image of Captain Andy at the helm, as well as a wideshot of the Tiare Taporo herself. SpaPolynesia LUXE @ Lime Blossom Villa is of course named in honour of Captain Andy and his vessel, the Tiare Taporo.
