Opposite: The spa product line Tata Harper used at The Shore Club’s Dune Spa and at The Palms Spa. ed, the spa’s owner lives here on island and champions a lighthearted approach towards the industry. Operating across three channels, you can find Spa Tropique either at their resident four spas (one of which is con-veniently located in Grace Bay’s Ports of Call), Drift Spa at the Windsong Resort, or through their gloriously unique mobile service. This service takes the logistics out of R&R by capturing the entire spa experience and bringing it to you, whether on the beach, in a villa, yacht or resort. Spa Tropique’s unique services don’t stop at their mobile capabilities either, signature treatments include ‘Wrapture’, a water lily wrap using actual crushed water lilies to cool the skin, ‘The Royal Treatment’, a facial using collagen and caviar, and ‘Wild’, a wild berry body pol-ish offered at the Drift Spa in the Windsong Resort. A treatment worth noting is the ‘Sea & C Oxygen Factory Facial’ as it left my complexion restored and glowing for days. Vitamin C and seaweed is used with a peel to balance pores and rejuve-nate the skin, it’s like a steam room, scrub and sauna for your face (and a cold gin and tonic afterwards)... rolled into one. Spa Tropique’s skincare line features botanical and fruit-based prod-ucts that champion local fruits of the Caribbean, from papaya, pineapple, to coconut, and mango. Walk down a web of small pathways under a canopy of lush local flora, and you reach three stand-alone elevated cottages, a.k.a… Dune Spa . Located in a secluded area of The Shore Club on Long Bay Beach, each cottage is an indi-vidual treatment room, decked out with a private balcony should you want to enjoy a glass of champagne and a breathtaking view before or after your treatment. The private outdoor shower overlooks the ocean and inside, you have the option to swap air conditioning for a calming ocean breeze, with the doors left open during treatment. Dune Spa represents the ever-chang-ing dunes on Long Bay Beach, and their constant evolving form caused by the natural environment. Emphasis on local ingredients here are paramount, such as sand from Long Bay Beach, coconut oil from the island, sugar cane from Middle Caicos, and Frangipani flowers from the local island trees. The menu also draws on a multitude of wellbeing techniques from Jamaican bush medicine to ancient Chinese medicine and holistic therapy. Signature treatments include the ‘Sea Salt Caramel Body Glow’ that uses ingre-dients such as raw honey, vanilla and local coconut, along with customised massages, which adjust variables like fre-quency of brush strokes, pressure and time spent on each stage in response to the client’s needs. 58 • • • • • MAY/JUNE 2017 “Where When How -Turks & Caicos Islands”
