Wellness Wednesday: Spas & Wellness in Turks & Caicos


A little off the beaten path, this British colony is home to the third largest coral reef system in the world and offers more than 200 miles of beaches. The Turks & Caicos is made up of 40 islands and is part of the same archipelago as The Bahamas. Grand Turk is the capital, and Christopher Columbus is said to have first made landfall on one of its beaches. Whale watching is a popular attraction throughout the Turks & Caicos, as well as gazing at dolphins that are a familiar sight in the turquoise waters of the coastline.


One of Most Acclaimed Spas in the Caribbean. The spiritual heart of this resort is undoubtedly the The Spa at The Palms; an oasis of peace and tranquility in the lives of our busy guests. Offering a “Caribbean spa resort” experience, this is a standalone luxury destination for anyone looking to harmonize mind, body and spirit.

Thoughtfully designed to maximize the effects of a range of holistic therapies drawn from around the world, the fusion of ancient health remedies and contemporary wellness technology offers the ultimate rejuvenation experience. Select a therapy, lie back and allow yourself to be soothed and pampered by the attentive, professional staff.

Some of the spa treatments offered are Mother of Pearl Body Exfoliation and the Moonlight and Stars Massage.

Mother of Pearl Body Exfoliation – 30 minutes

A precious blend of hand-crushed, locally-sourced queen conch shells are combined with a range of individually-selected aromatherapy oils to smooth and polish the skin.

Enjoy a massage for two in the privacy of your patio as you relax under the tropical stars and listen to the soothing sounds of the Caribbean ocean.
