Simple white walls decorated with eastern motifs and candles enclose Skin Face Body Esthetics, where bodies are indulged with a variety of skin-nourishing treatments and massage services. Customers plunge into their pampering with a silky body-polish scrub, which gently scours the skin to rid it of dead cells, barcodes, and other aesthetic offenders. A shower flushes away subsequent dermal debris, leaving the epidermal blanket with a soft luminous sheen. After faces are freshened up, back muscles yield themselves to either a Swedish massage or a deep-tissue massage to complete the one-hour pampering. Under the expert hands of a Skin Face Body massage therapist, stress melts away, muscle-bound toxins eddy out of sighing sinews, and rubik’s cubes finally reach completion.
My Body TLC’s licensed massage therapists deftly harness and apply the power of human touch to improve and maintain whole-body health. Each Happy Feet reflexology treatment targets distal appendages with fingerwork designed to reduce stress, energize sluggish blood and lymph flow, and melt the icy hearts of callous nervous systems. Feet surrender sensitive spots to focused pressure during 30 minutes of relaxing manipulation, as therapists follow foot-bound maps of bodily systems to activate all-over relief and see whether patients have treasure buried in their gall bladders. Preface and append massages in My Body TLC’s serene waiting area, bathed in the gentle glow of colored light-therapy panels.
Between the mint walls of Sandals Salon, a slate of experienced stylists freshen patrons’ appearances with hair and skin services, including trend-sensitive cuts, perms, and body waxing, with the help of Goldwell and AG products. The staff settles clients in by offering hot coffee or purified water during a quick consultation. Then, the multitasking team gets to work, coloring or styling hair while simultaneously beautifying nails. A kaleidoscope of OPI polishes keeps digits shining, and gel nails enhance fingertips with a thin, clear overlay that resists chipping, yellowing, and running away as the nail grows out.
Aboard the 105-foot Naples Princess yacht, passengers live like royalty. They can tan on the upper sun deck, relax in the air-conditioned cabins below, or feast on lunch buffets and gourmet dinners. Passengers can explore local waterways during tours, which often catch glimpses of marine animals like dolphins, seabirds, and other wildlife, along with views of Port Royal's luxury homes and the Gulf of Mexico's majestic sunsets.
The skilled staff at Torys Total Hair Care, a Rusk-source salon, has lent its coiffed creations to fashioneers such as Ed Hardy, True Religion, and Perry Ellis. Owners Paul Franklin and Rusk International Design Team member Erick Carter, helm a staff that hand-fashions heads with an extensive list of services.
At Cypress Beauty & Co., trained technicians wield files, clippers, and brushes in the pursuit of polished nails and peace of mind. During the 60- to 90-minute experience, a nail guru takes guardianship of hands and feet at a super-sanitized station, clipping and filing nails into perfect crescents and curtailing cuticles to expand keratin canvases. A coat of OPI polish in the desired color leaves nails as strong and sparkling as 10 diamond-encrusted box turtles. Both locations usher prettifiers in with sunny hues and glitzy displays of the 50 brands of beauty products they stock. Patrons can upgrade to french polish ($5 for mani; $10 for pedi) and add a sea extract marine-cooling mask ($10) or a complimentary round of applause.
