This incredible island may be the best-kept secret I have come across in my life. This island and more specifically, the resort, was the perfect balance of luxury, peacefulness, intrigue, and health. Our trip to Turks and Caicos was a real getaway….and I was even working!
As a member of the spa team at Exhale Spa, I was asked to teach a mid-summer retreat at the british owned island, Turks and Caicos.
The travel time to get to this paradise was by no means long, although with no direct flight from Houston, there were questions on how I would feel once I arrived. However, the length of time it took to get there was completely forgotten by the time I arrived at the Hotel: The Ganesvoort Hotel, Turks and Caicos. http://www.gansevoortturksandcaicos.com
I arrived a day early to prepare for the coming guests and familiarize myself with the setup of the studio where we worked out. If I have forgotten to mention that this was an exercise retreat, it’s because you can hardly call it exercise when you are looking at ocean water that is that beautiful (while exercising). But, we definitely exercised, and enjoyed jumping into the ocean post every class.
With all the working out, we were able to enjoy the delicious food that was included with our retreat. Fresh fish, scallops that melted in your mouth, a chilled asparagus soup that would make anyone enjoy asparagus, were just a few of the items on the menu that we enjoyed each and every meal.
The hotel was absolutely gorgeous. The hotel, paired with the staff, made the entire trip one of the best trips I have ever been on.
We plan to have more retreats like this in the very near future, so keep us in mind when you are making your next spring and summer trip!
