Under the supervision of the spa’s newly appointed Spa Director, Stephanie Rest, the 26,000 square-foot spa at the Regent Palms Turks and Caicos has has been revamped with a new treatment menu, newly-introduced product lines and a soft renovation of the treatment rooms. It incorpoates elements both Asian and Caribbean themes.
In addition, the boutique resort’s Executive Chef, Eric Vernice, has also exclusively crafted a healthy lifestyle lunch menu to encompass the spa’s refreshed new image.
“We are taking our current spa product, which is continually referred to as one of the top in the region, and making it even better,” said Karen Whitt, general manager, in a written release.
Products from organically formulated lines, Sothys and Zents, are implemented within the spa’s world-renowned experiences including signature Caribbean-inspired treatments such as the "Mother of Pearl Conch Polish," which uses a precious blend of hand crushed local queen conch shells to gently revitalize and soften, and the indigenous island "Zareeba" treatment during which guests inhale an aromatic steam from a blend of freshly brewed therapeutic herbs followed by a toxin-releasing massage.
Signature Asian-inspired treatments include the "Oriental Essence Ceremony," a ginger infused salt scrub preceding a massage inspired by ancient Asian and Indian techniques using an aromatic spice sachet filled with smooth pebbles and soaked in warmed exotic oils. The "Bamboo Massage," practiced throughout Asia as an ancient form of body work, combines elements of techniques where therapists use varying lengths of bamboo to provide maximum muscle tension release in key areas of the body.
“Expectations have increased when it comes to a destination spa experience,” said Rest. “We have upheld the original, superb foundation of the spa, embellishing what has made it a leading spa for years, while introducing a new visage, adding fresh elements that will delight guests, and encourage an extended stay.”
Guests will enjoy treatments in one of the spa’s updated treatment rooms, each featuring a water feature by day and fire by night. The newly refreshed Zareeba Rooms, found in the spa’s garden, provide an alternative setting for island-inspired treatments.
Guests can also savor light, flavorful fare with a new lunch offering ingredients derived from the chef’s own organic garden. Yoga and pilates classes are also offered in the expansive studio overlooking the inspiring waterscapes in the spa courtyard.
