Wellness Xmas destination – Turks and Caicos
What does Turks and Caicos (T&C) have in common with the Bahamas? Well, other than both being in the Caribbean and T&C at one time in its history being part of the Bahamas, both are tax havens. But travelling to T&C need not only be a means of easing your financial obligations to the taxman – the islands are a premier tourist destination with impressive wellness and spa resorts that can stand toe to toe with any in the world.
- Parrot Cay and Como Shambhala Retreat – Sitting on the 1000-acre Parrot Cay Island, the Como Shambhala resort gives guests access to a 1.5 kilometre long beach to complement the facilities at its holistic spa and health-conscious cuisine. Como Shambhala continuously affirms its belief in ensuring the rejuvenation of their guests mind, spirit and body. There is a 1300 sq. foot Yoga pavillion, an outside Jacuzzi garden, a Pilates exercise studio and a number of Japanese-themed baths.
- The Regent Palms Spa – The Regent Palms is a dominant 72-suite luxury hotel in the T&C sitting on Grace Bay Beach. The rooms are just a few paces away from the fine, white beach sands and the sky blue ocean waters. But despite these irresistible attractions, many guests troop to the Regent Palms for completely different reason – the 25,000 sq. foot spa. Individual treatment rooms have been deliberately kept standalone to ensure guests enjoy a scenic view of the water by day and the spectacular fire displays at night. The Regent Palms Spa has over time developed a number of signature treatments including exfoliation using hand ground queen conch shells, essential oil drops massage and inhalation of herbal steam.
