On the Menu: Island-inspired Treatments

Island-inspired treatments from a selection of spas on Turks and Caicos Islands capitalize on the Caribbean beauty that encompasses the area.

ZAREEBA

Location: The Spa at The Palms

Time & Cost: 90 minutes, $215

Specially created by a Caribbean herbalist, this signature treatment is available after 6 pm. Zareeba, which translates into “protected enclosure,” is a unique island herbal steam cleansing and detoxification ritual. In a tentlike enclosure, guests inhale aromatic steam blended with freshly brewed therapeutic herbs. After the steam session, a cooling wrap and a lymphatic drainage massage complete the purification ritual. This service is ideal for guests with jet lag or sinus problems.

SUNRISE SEA & SCRUB

Location: Red Lane Spa at Beaches Resort & Spa

Time & Cost: 50 minutes, $130

A custom blend of island honey, sea salt, citrus and sand is combined in this scrub that is performed seaside. After exfoliation, guests take a dip in the warm Caribbean Sea, followed by an optional body application of suntan lotion, administered with Swedish massage strokes.
