The Spa at The Palms Resort (Caribbean) debuted January 2005.

Almost a destination in itself, the 25,000+ square foot spa is a highlight of The Palms, a new five star, $85 million resort.

Each treatment and service offers its own unique personal benefit for women, men and children as young as three years old. The “Top Ten” picks from Karen Shawn, Spa Director include:

For Women: Conch-ology – Mother of Pearl Scrub — a signature treatment of The Spa at The Palms. The scrub is made up of hand crushed queen conch shells mixed with pure natural moisturizing aloe gel (picked from the property gardens), and antioxidant lemongrass oil. The result is silky smooth, radiant and younger looking skin. A 25 minute session costs $65.

For Men: Stress Relief & Rejuvenation — Guests see immediate results from this anti-aging facial treatment offering intense skin stimulation for a firmer, de-stressed and younger looking appearance. The 80 minute session also includes a delightful herb infused oil scalp treatment and massage along with herbal foot reflexology. The treatment costs $150.

For Children: Little Yogis — Designed for children ages 3 to 8, the class is fun, safe, easy and everything a “Little Yogi” needs to get started on the path to a long, healthy life. A parent or guardian must be present during class. Minimum of six children - $10.00 per child.

The Palms, a 72-suite resort situated on 12 acres of landscaped grounds, offers two and three bedroom suites on celebrated Grace Bay Beach.

"Taking a week at a spa, even though you may go with friends, is very much a solitary experience. But though I know it's absolutely different than a solo dining restaurant experience, there's a connection," said Ruth M. Owades, President of Calyx & Corolla, The Flower Lover's Flower Company.
