Carnival, Caribe influence, wellness and renewal combine to create an extraordinary
spa experience -
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad
March 14, 2008 The first Hyatt Pure spa in the Caribbean, Spa
Esencia is open at the new Hyatt Regency Trinidad. The Caribbeans newest
business and leisure hotel offers a uniquely designed spa experience that maintains
the festive environment of Trinidad. Celebrations such as Carnival are such
a bold and important part of our cultural experience, explained Spa Director
Serena Rogers. Spa Esencia infuses the theme of celebration with pampering
treatments to prepare, indulge, detox and retreat the body, mind and spirit. There
is a Trinidad & Tobago influence in every aspect of the spa.
Inspired by the beauty of the dual island nations colorful
environment, Spa Esencia is a natural reflection of the diverse heritage and celebratory
culture that gives Trinidad & Tobago its unique character. Indigenous treatment
styles, materials and scents such as eucalyptus, jasmine, lemongrass and Neroli
create the ultimate immersion of Trinidads natural elements. Spa Esencias
unique approach focuses on a daily celebration of the self. Menu selections
are inspired by signature cultural events and rituals such as Carnival fetes,
Dimanche Gras and liming.
To ensure an
authentic approach to incorporating the lush environment of Trinidad, Rogers and
a team from the spa extensively toured the island with translators and local guides
to learn about indigenous tribes, extinct cultures, natural available materials
and medicinal influences from South American, Native Caribbean and African cultures
that are now a part of the Trinidad & Tobago population. When designing the
treatments, Spa Esencias creators also researched and considered different
skin tones and textures to effectively cater to the many races and cultures represented
in the local people on-island.
of Spa Esencia is as stunning and refreshing as the treatments. Each suite is
equipped with a private shower and vanity allowing guests to remain in one individual
space for multiple treatments, rather than sharing a locker room and changing
suites for each service. A Couples suite is also available where dual treatments
can be performed simultaneously; all suites have beautiful views of the Gulf of
Paria. A specialized Spa Concierge is on-site to assist with all consultations,
selections and reservations. For more information, please call 868-821-6500 to
