Massage in Turks and Caicos
My husband and I just got back from Turks and Caicos. As normal, we did not want to leave. This trip was just as magical, wonderful, and all the great words you would use to describe something that you love. I would live there if I could move my family and friends with me. But, that is not happening, so, it looks like we will be staying in Mississippi.
Oh, and while I am on that topic, I know lots of people get a little confused from time to time about where I actually live. I do not live in Turks and Caicos. I just travel there as often as possible. Mississippi is my home. Turks and Caicos is my happy place, which is why I started a blog “Dream Turks and Caicos.” Why…because I am always dreaming of Turks and Caicos and because life is so simple while we are there. It is just so stress free and relaxing.
Anyway, this was our first time to get a massage in Turks and Caicos. Like I have said many times, we are budget vacationers. We do not stay at the ritziest of places and all that…we wouldn’t get to go as often if we did. But, this time, our entire trip was completely paid for through credit card points. So, we treated ourselves to massages at Spa Tropique.
We have looked at the booklet on Spa Tropique in Turks and Caicos in the past but never booked anything. So, we looked them up again before going and saw they had good reviews on TripAdvisor. From there, we went ahead and booked our massages.
We wanted to start our vacation off completely relaxed, so we got the massages our first morning on the island. Also, we were scared that if we waited until the end of the trip we might have been sunburned and didn’t want to not enjoy our massages.
Spa Tropique is located in the Grace Bay area near Salt Mills. It was only about a 5 minute drive from where we were staying – Royal West Indies. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were allowed to come right in. We filled out some paperwork and got started.
Let me go ahead and say that Spa Tropique is not some super fancy place. Instead, it is a nice, clean place that looks like you would expect a true Caribbean and tropical type spa to look. The walls are lime green and white striped and the doors are bright pink. Both ladies are very professional and nice. My husband and I had separate rooms for our massages. Once our massages were over, we had water and Hershey kisses waiting. My husband actually drank his water and mine and they kindly got me another glass.
Spa Tropique may not look like a spa at the Ritz Carlton, but Mrs. Vicky and Dee gave the best massages my husband and I had ever had. I did the 70 minute Swedish massage and he did the 50 minute Swedish massage. My husband and I both agree that those were the best massages we have ever had. I’m pretty sure I was almost drooling by the end of mine.
Oh, and if you want them to come to you they will (for a fee of course). I didn’t mind going to them.
While looking at different places to get massages on the island, it does seem that Spa Topique has some of the best prices. My 70 minute massage was $145 and my husband’s 50 minute massage was $120. This of course does not include taxes. Also, we left a tip and obviously that price does not include the tip.
If you are thinking about getting a massage while on the island – do it and give Spa Tropique in Turks and Caicos a try. As you can tell, I was completely pleased as is my husband. We spent $300 + on our massages and it was worth it. We will most likely not get a massage in Turks and Caicos every time we visit, but now we know where to go. Our goal of starting our trip off 100% relaxed worked. I actually had a pretty bad back ache prior to going and it didn’t bother me for the rest of the trip (after massage).
Anyway, I hope my review helps you make a decision on where to go get your massage on the island. I could use another massage right now. Perhaps we should have ended our trip with massages as well…ha..yeah right…certainly not in the budget but it is nice to dream.
I always like to say I need a vacation from my vacation. My husband and I were completely lazy on this trip but I am still exhausted from the traveling part I guess. Coming home to house work, yard work, and all that good stuff hasn’t helped my exhaustion either. I’m not a napper but since being back I have felt like I could take a nap daily.
