A holistic health retreat in Turks and Caicos
9 Treatment Rooms
COMO Shambhala Retreat at COMO Parrot Cay is more than just a spa in the ordinary sense of the word. Sure, you can get a massage or a facial and relax in a sauna, but that’s just a small part of what it offers.
The spa is more of a wellness center, an intimate retreat tucked away in a thicket of tropical trees, a place that awakens the senses with its holistic approach to wellness in both mind and body. When you leave the tranquil facility — and you may never want to — there’s no doubt you’ll come away feeling rejuvenated.
With its signature Balinese-inspired architecture, COMO Shambhala Retreat has nine treatments rooms, two pavilions for Ayurvedic therapies and hot river stone massages, and a spa cottage with a screened, open-air area for private dinners. Daily complimentary yoga classes are held at the spa’s yoga pavilion with vast views of the tropical environment.
The Turks and Caicos spa also features its own private yoga studio, a Pilates studio, a Pilates hut for Ayurvedic consultations, and a gym with cardio machines and weights. After you work up a sweat, enjoy the facility’s outdoor shower on the sun deck and relax in the infinity-edge pool.
Or, if you’re looking for another sort of sweat therapy, try the spa’s steam rooms and sauna (there are separate facilities for men and women). The women’s locker room has its own private Jacuzzi, and there’s another outdoor Jacuzzi surrounded by ferns and bougainvillea with unobstructed views of unspoiled wetlands that is open to everyone.
Simply walking between each of the spa’s buildings is like wandering through a peaceful botanical garden, a sanctuary all your own.
COMO Shambhala Retreat’s holistic and Asian-influenced treatments make the spa the ultimate soothing place.
Each treatment is designed to rebalance and restore using natural techniques and ingredients. The hot river stone massage, for example, uses hot oiled stones to glide over your muscles, addressing your deepest, hardest-to-reach tensions. But they’re not just any stones — each is handpicked from the Ayung River in Bali. The massage therapist are extensively trained to perform the intricate treatment.
The Parrot Cay spa is also known for its Ayurvedic therapies — an ancient Indian system of healthcare with an all-natural approach to achieving wellness of mind, body and soul. Herbal oils, designed to induce calmness and clarity, play a significant role in each treatment.
The COMO Shambhala Retreat experience is tailored to your needs. The luxury spa offers consultations to help determine the best treatment for you. And because of the holistic approach to wellness, nutrition is a priority. Indeed, COMO Shambhala Retreat works hand in hand with the resort’s health-conscious restaurants.
As part of your consultation, a spa consultant can recommend which kind of fresh juice will best complement your particular treatment. But you can’t leave without trying the housemade ginger tea.
The integrated approach to wellness, along with an idyllic location, makes the COMO Shambala Retreat so much more than a spa. By combining treatments with nutrition, yoga, meditation and more, this space has established itself as an exceptional holistic health center.
