Spa Showcase: Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, Cayman Islands
The spa’s quartz sand table is the only one of its kind in the Cayman Islands. “Quartz has become a popular healer,” points out spa director Javana PhillipsBroad. Guests who dream of a restorative rest can book a Beach Break “Caymanian nap” (30 min./$95) on the heated table. Another hit in this series of firsts: a domed Turkish hammam that dazzles with 93,528 mosaic tiles.
Signature Service: Both signature spa treatments happen in the hammam. During the Purification Hammam Journey (120 min./$350), therapists use a traditional Kese mitt to cleanse the body, volcanic ash soap to exfoliate and marine-silt mud to mineralize the skin, then perform a scalp and full body massage. The Beauty Hammam (120 min./$350) doubles down on exfoliation, buffing the body with a Kese mitt and a tea-infused apricot oil bamboo scrub, followed by the application of a rhassoul clay masque, then a ylang ylang and jasmine scented balm massage.
