Sámas, the Deluxe Destination Spa at Park Hotel Kenmare

County Kerry, Ireland

Overlooking the Kenmare Bay, this destination spa and hotel resides in a fairytale setting on the Ring of Kerry. Renowned for its hospitality, it features a unique range of facilities: a destination spa, 25-meter lap pool, 18-hole golf course, and lush gardens. S?mas, the spa, derives its name from a Gaelic word meaning ?indulgence of the senses? and aims to do just that. Treatments and ambience blend Eastern and Western modalities, which are combined in the S?mas Experience?a three-hour-long, three-part treatment protocol that includes time in the Thermal Suite, an individualized holistic treatment, and a relaxation ritual.
