Couples Sans Souci Resort and Spa in Ocho Rios, Jamaica offers Charlie's Spa, San Souci's complete Tropical-style facility, and has earned praise as one of the best spas in all the Caribbean by numerous publications, critics, travel guides and of course, by the guests. The spa got its name from 'Charlie' a friendly resident sea turtle. Almost 100 years old, Charlie lives in the mineral spring grotto that bubbles up from beneath the resort with rejuvenating waters that rival the great natural mineral springs of Europe.
The mineral waters are the source from which the locations popularity first sprang forth. As far back as the 1700s, the mineral springs on the Sans Souci property have been mentioned in Jamaican history books as being excellent for health purposes and renewing romantic energy. For generations, people from nearby villages would congregate on Sundays lining up for the whole day to take their turn in the mineral spring for its curative powers.
