Holistic experiences harnessed by Jamaican ingredients are the focus at the new Irie Baths & Spa at S Hotel Jamaica in Montego Bay which opened earlier this year, embracing local heritage and featuring therapeutic subterranean plunge pools, unique to the area.
The Irie Baths & Spa promotes an authentic approach to wellness through treatments, natural products, and practice. Unique to S Hotel are the gorgeous Irie Baths, three subterranean marble plunge pools, reminiscent of ancient baths, consisting of varying temperatures (warm, hot, and cold) offering kinetic energy therapy while aiding circulation.

Products used in the therapies feature locally made 100% pure cold-pressed Jamaican coconut oil from Sharon Feanny and essential and massage oils from Starfish, a local Jamaican brand. Four treatment rooms including two double rooms (one with dual baths for couples) and two singles offer an array of services from facials, massages, body treatments and scrubs, while a spacious salon ensures your beauty regimen is in check offering hair styling services, manicures, pedicures, and waxing services.
Two signature Irie Baths & Spa treatments featuring local Jamaican products include:
Blue Mountain Body ‘Brasian’ Scrub This buzzy body scrub is made with freshly ground Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, brown sugar, and lavender oil from Starfish, blended together for an aromatic exfoliation invigorating the senses. The treatment is followed by Sothy’s shea butter or pure cold pressed Jamaican coconut oil, for intense hydration.
Beach, Lime & Coconut Body Cocktail This full body scrub, inspired by the quintessential beach side cocktail, combines brown sugar, fresh lime juice, and 100% cold pressed Jamaican coconut oil, which is applied to the skin to gently exfoliate and increases circulation. This invigorating treatment is followed by Sothy’s shea butter or Jamaican coconut oil, soothing skin leaving a healthy glow.
Additional benefit to these treatments includes removal of dead skin cells, helps minimize the appearance of cellulite, detoxes the body of lactic acid, and can promote weight loss.
