Within one multifaceted facility, Tahiti Tans & Travel bathes clients in a suite of pampering and aesthetic services while acting as an oasis of relaxation. Spray-tan mists and UV beds grace skin with a sun-drenched glow as epidermises contrast with gleaming teeth fresh from a whitening treatment. Packed with nutrients from chocolate or sea clay?which dolphins also use in their beauty regimens?body wraps cloak guests snugly as they nourish the skin. Tahiti?s massage therapists also work kinks out of backs using traditional modalities, hot stones, and automated hydromassage beds as they knead away stress.
The sense of harmony that pervades the atmosphere of Statement Salon, Spa and Fitness extends to the spa’s lengthy menu of treatments, all of which work in unison to imbue the body with beauty and health. Whether cropping hair, polishing nails, or soaking skin in UV-free spray-tan solutions, the team works to accentuate clients' best physical features while complimentary fruit waters and herbal teas soothe frazzled nerves. Miriam Lopez is a multitalented aesthetician who came to Statement after studying at a professional Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, hoping to extend her expertise towards a variety of services, including hairstyling, facials, and waxing.
Though a visitor to the tranquil spa’s treatment rooms might not realize it, the sounds of pulsating music and stretch-induced groans echo throughout the studio just next door, where trainers lead personal workouts and fitness classes. Students of all ability levels can dance to the energetic beats of Zumba classes, stretch their limbs in yoga sessions, and haul bags filled with hot stones to the spa’s massage-therapy rooms during muscle-building boot camps.
The Sun Shack adds pizzazz to pallid dermises year-round with a combination of UV beds and custom airbrush-tanning services. Sundash, Genesis, SunStar, and Ultrabronz beds get skin glowing with wraparound lamps for even, all-over color. Those looking to tan without incurring the burns of sunbathing or noshing radioactive toast can opt for airbrush jobs. Spray technicians customize desired shades and apply micromists of organic DHA ingredients that develop in one hour and can last several days.
The cooks behind the restaurant, lounge, and café keep things focused, putting together a tight menu that draws from the best of American cuisine, including grilled burgers, Cajun rice sides, and chef-prepared fish fillets. In addition to a trio of salads, they prepare four pub-grub appetizers, including pork-chop bites, mozzarella sticks, and deep-fried chicken wings dunked in thai, bourbon, or spicy Cajun sauce. After digging into finger foods, diners can enjoy entrees of grilled chicken breast or grab hold of one of four classic, no-frills sandwiches—such as the BLT or turkey club—that come with housemade potato chips.
Thirteen signature mixed drinks—12 of which bartenders spike with Cîroc premium vodkas—act as the bedrock to a drink menu filled with fountain drinks and domestic and imported beers. A peach-flavored one, for instance, blends with orange and cranberry juices to create Peach on the Beach, a tastier treat than the short-lived Prune in the Fridge.
Like Prince Charming searching for the foot of his Cinderella, the staff members at Sunlimited Tanning look for just the right tanning technology to fit each customer. They take into account a number of factors, including clients’ complexions and natural skin tones, and they use this information to prescribe treatment with one of four different tanning beds or a UV-free airbrush-tanning booth.
The salon’s tanning beds come equipped with amenities such as ultra bronzing bulbs, high-pressure facials, and built-in air conditioning. Technicians also take pains to make sure the bulbs in all tanning beds are replaced every 500 hours, lest they break open and spill the sun’s tears that they contain. Sunlimited’s staff can help clients’ tanning results last with a selection of skincare products that oxygenate the skin, and the salon offers Fit infrared body wraps to fend off fat and cellulite.
Sculpted Tans' professional airbrush tanning provides a natural-looking golden glow without exposing skin to harmful UV rays, chemicals, or sharp beach glass. The pigmentally potent solution, which is odorless and made of natural ingredients such as sugar cane and red raspberries, uses three different bronzers that develop on skin in 6-8 hours and last 5-10 days. Because it's a fine mist applied by a steady-handed technician, Sculpted Tans' airbrush tan leaves no orange streaks or cheetah spots. Sculpted Tans recommends you shave or wax, exfoliate skin, and do not use any topicals before your airbrush tan, and afterward, moisturize with Vitamin E lotion or leftover BLT mayo.
