Top 5 Superyachts with Dedicated Spas: Bahamas Luxury Yacht Charters

🕦 Jun 28, 2024

Superyachts with dedicated spas redefine luxury on the water by transforming these vessels into floating wellness centers. In this article, I want to show you 5 of the most impressive superyacht spa centers out there, and they can all be chartered!

When we discuss spa facilities on superyachts, we’re talking about more than just a massage room. These are comprehensive wellness complexes that include multiple treatment areas such as saunas, steam rooms, hammams, plunge pools, and beauty salons.

They are meticulously designed to provide an immersive relaxation experience that by far beats top spa resorts on land, with the number one advantage: they are ON the water!

SHERAKHAN is a 229-foot luxury motor yacht built by the Dutch Vuyk Shipyard in 2005. She underwent a major refit in 2022. She accommodates a whole 26 guests across 13 cabins and has a crew of 19. Note that this is an unusually large guest capacity for a charter yacht, even in The Bahamas.

I am very fond of the interior design of the spa facilities onboard SHERAKHAN (It was designed by Claudia Rijntjes). It has a very unique style that is bold, sensual, calm, and healing all at once.

The main spa room has a—I want to be daring and call it a “tropical-spiritual-boho theme”, highlighted by two large Buddhas and a central hot tub under a striking illuminated turtle mural and surrounded by white pebbles on the floor. Unique nature-themed artwork on both walls and ceiling further enhances the space. This is a floating tropical island!

The massage room is done in a Sangria red with a bold cherry art piece of a very contrasting style on one wall and a huge mermaid mosaic on the other. It is honestly very eccentric, but I really like it!

The spacious sauna is in a more traditional style. It is all wood, with a hot coal centerpiece, and softened by cozy, dim lighting to ensure a deeply relaxing experience.

SHERAKHAN also features a fully equipped gym, an open-air swimming pool, and a library.

Before wrapping up, I must highlight SHERAKHAN’s main saloon—a remarkable space truly worthy of a standing applause.

It features a large, oval dining table with seating for 26 charter guests, perfect for grand dinner parties or a very extravagant meal for 2. Above, a striking light fixture spans the entire length of the table. You will see it in the picture above.

On either side of the dining area, spiral twin glass staircases ascend to spacious balconies that overlook the saloon, in case you want to add a bit of extra grandeur to your speech or take a photo that captures all the plates.

This palace-like design offers sweeping views of the dining area below and contributes to an overall sense of openness and grandeur.

4. Lady Britt | 207 ft
Spa Room, Beauty Salon, Fold-down Balcony, Gym, Open-Air Jacuzzi 

LADY BRITT is a 207-foot Luxury Motor Yacht built by the renowned Royal Dutch shipyard Feadship in 2011. She accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins and has a crew of 17.

LADY BRITT’s wellness center, located on the bridge deck, is full of luxurious amenities designed for guests focused on health and relaxation during their luxury yacht charter. This is an ideal yacht for rejuvenation, stress relief, and prioritizing personal well-being.

The upper deck is entirely devoted to spa facilities, complete with heated floors, a fully equipped gym, a sauna, and a fold-down balcony for yoga, workouts, or meditation with views over the water. For outdoor relaxation, there’s an open-air jacuzzi on the foredeck.

Additionally, upon request, the spa center can be converted into a hair or beauty salon, complete with professional hairdressing services.

LADY BRITT also features a beach club on the aft deck and an outdoor cinema on the sundeck, where you can watch movies under the stars! Plus, she has an elevator.

She’s got all the extravagant features needed for an absolutely wonderfully over-the-top, luxurious charter experience! Should I add more adjectives? I think you get my point.

Types of Charter Yachts in the Bahamas

We recommend either chartering a motor yacht or catamaran for your crewed yacht charter vacation in the Bahamas. Why? The water in the Bahamas is very shallow, which greatly limits accessibility for deep-drafted yachts.

“We have seen a growing demand for luxury motor yacht charters among high-end charter guests.”

3. Coral Ocean | 239 ft
Spa Room, Sauna, Steam Room, Massage Room, Gym, Beauty + Hair Salon, Jacuzzi

CORAL OCEAN is a 239-foot Luxury Motor Yacht built by the renowned German Shipbuilder Lürssen Yachts in 1994.

She underwent a $37,000,000 refit in 2022, during which the owner businessman, Ian Malouf, made radical changes to the layout. His changes have placed CORAL OCEAN among the most impressive yachts out there!

She accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins and has a crew of 22.

Luxury Motor Yacht Coral Ocean Spa

Where do I begin? CORAL OCEAN isn’t just a yacht; it’s a floating wellness paradise that redefines the meaning of wellness at sea.

Where else can you sweat it out in an infrared sauna, then stroll a few steps to chill in high-end luxury, surrounded by products from Ikou, Dior, and Chanel?

Ian Malouf’s CORAL OCEAN takes self-care from whispered luxury to a loud, resplendent reality.

And what about the beauty therapy sessions aboard? More like a spa buffet with massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures delivered by an expert therapist whose sole mission is to rejuvenate your body and spirit. Is it too much? Definitely!

For those who need to maintain their muscle tone or perhaps gain some, CORAL OCEAN offers a fully equipped gym that’s more boutique hotel than a boat.

This must be the gym with the best view in the world! Imagine lifting weights or running a treadmill with the vast ocean stretching out around you—the open sides let the sea breeze boost your burn.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the pull-up bars that hang on a hydraulic roof that can be lifted to hang over the open water. When you’re done, just let go and drop directly into the ocean. That’s the Gym.

Below deck, the calm continues with a steam room in beautiful blue mosaic tiles and gorgeous walls decorated with illuminated jellyfish; I have never seen anything like it!

Luxury Motor Yacht Coral Ocean Jacuzzi

And just when you think you’ve seen all, there’s the pièce de résistance: a spa pool on the sun deck with a glass bottom crafted by Seable&Co. Nearby, the sun lounge with Dedar fabric mattresses and strategic umbrella placement ensures that even sunbathing turns into a sybaritic escape.

Are we done? Well, we have barely started, but the rest is for another time. I will just mention jet skis so you know they are there… and a whole lot of other water sports.

2. Amaryllis | 257 ft
Spa, Sauna, Steam Room, Swimming Pool, Massage Suite, Gym

AMARYLLIS is a 257-foot luxury motor yacht built by the acclaimed German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2011. She accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins and has a crew of 23.

Her incredible interior, designed by Raymond Langton, draws inspiration from the Belle Époque and Art Deco periods. This yacht is a floating tribute to the golden age of art and luxury! I love it!

The wellness facilities on board AMARYLLIS promise more than relaxation; they offer a transformative experience. Let’s begin at the sauna and steam room. Which way do you prefer to be heated?

Then, step from the heat to the coolness of the 5-meter plunge pool located on the top sun deck under the open sky. This is a great place to relax with a cocktail either under the sun or under the stars at night when the light in the pool can be set to change colors. I don’t want to come across as easily impressed, but it is seriously quite cool.

Now, you can also indulge in a massage in the dedicated massage suite, where expert therapists deploy their skills to rejuvenate and revitalize, leaving you floating on air.

Not to be overlooked, the yacht’s gym features state-of-the-art equipment. Whether it’s strength training or a cardio session, the panoramic views across the ocean add an exhilarating edge to your fitness routine. There is no excuse for not stepping off this yacht more toned than before.

Okay, I think I have said what I wanted to say… Except, AMARYLLIS also has a Beach Club on the aft deck with a fold-down swimming platform for easy access to the water. Plus, she’s got an elevator and jet skis and a garage full of water sports, and I seriously urge you to have a look at her avant-garde piano; it looks fast!

1. Apho | 378 ft
Spa, Hammam, Gym, Plunge Pool, Massage Room, Himalayan Salt Sauna

And now to number 1 on this list: my absolute favorite superyacht spa center; hold on tight!

APHO is a 378-foot luxury motor yacht built by the renowned German Shipyard Lürssen Yachts, just like CORAL OCEAN, which is number 3 on this list. APHO is one of Lürssen’s newer yachts, built as recently as 2021; she is literally brand new!

It is honestly going to be hard not to get sidetracked and try to capture all of APHO’s grandeur, but we would need a whole, solely dedicated article to do it justice. So, I will try to just focus on the wellness facilities of this floating wellness heaven.

Here we go: Its serene, nature-inspired spa merges into an oversized beach club on the aft deck, providing a great transition from deep relaxation to recreation.- You can literally step right into the sea.

The spa area is designed to pamper guests with a variety of luxury treatments in an environment decorated with beautiful mosaics and ivory onyx, which is mind-blowingly beautifully executed. Yes, that is the best sentence I could find to describe how much its decorations blow my mind. There, I said it again.

Key features of the spa include a Himalayan salt sauna, which offers a unique twist on traditional spa treatments. Just read up on the health benefits associated with salt therapy; this is a step up!

There is also a Hamman, for those who don’t know, you should know, but it’s essentially a Turkish steam bath.

It is what you see in the top picture, which looks like a church room with the most intricate mosaic walls, dark marble seating, and a striking centerpiece basin, which looks almost sacred. I don’t even think this is close to being an exaggeration.

Then, there is a dedicated massage room, ensuring that guests can receive a range of therapies for relaxation and rejuvenation or perhaps preparing the muscles for the next workout, which could be had in the fully equipped gym located on the sky deck, with full ocean views!

Or, you could skip the gym and just jump into the plunge pool, which is located right next to the spa. OR… you can push a button and see the fold-down balcony open, and if you are feeling brave, cause the drop is pretty far, you can jump right into the ocean! I have included a picture demonstrating this super cool action.

This was a trip of a lifetime

This was a trip of a lifetime! We booked with Nadja at DMA yachting and she made sure the entire process was easy and no problems. Our charter was with Zuri3 and our Captain Andre and First Mate Jana made our trip amazing! They made sure everything was taken care and treated us like royalty. This is not just a vacation this is an experience of a lifetime.

Louis was great from beginning to end and walked me through the whole process. He helped me find a great boat that fit within our time and cost preferences. He explained the differences between the different builds and the pros and cons. Once we selected the boat, he explained and walked me through the whole booking process and answered all my questions. Finally, he checked in with me before, during, and after the charter to make sure everything met our expectations. I can’t recommend Louis enough if you are planning a charter, and I will definitely be in touch for our next trip!
