Lavender Fields

The lavender around the figure-eight pond at Rosario Resort & Spa is in full bloom! The lavender shrub is named from the Latin lavare, which means "to wash," because the ancient Romans and Carthaginians used lavender in their bath water as a perfume as well as for its therapeutic properties. It is certainly one our featured aromotherapy botanical oil blends created on the island to rebalance body & mind during a massage treatment in our Spa by the Bay!

A visitor...

... and a surprise color among the lavender!
