Carnival Revelers Ready And Recover At Spa Esencia

Hyatt Regency Trinidad Spa Welcomes Guests With Carnival Inspired Treatments

Whether preparing for the hotel’s annual LIME fete or recovering from the whirlwind that is Carnival, guests at Hyatt Regency Trinidad can flock to Spa Esencia for both relaxation and rejuvenation. With Carnival-specific treatments, Spa Esencia is the perfect place to rev up or wind down from the island’s most festive celebration of the year.

Inspired by the colorful dual-island nation of Trinidad & Tobago, Spa Esencia offers a range of pre- and post-Carnival treatments such as the Warm Spice Body Wrap, combining a blend of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg along with a massage to restore the body’s natural energy needed for a week of Carnival fetes, and the Mineral Mud Mas Body Wrap, which is inspired by Mud Mas, the traditional Carnival masquerade where revelers cover themselves in mud and dance in the streets until dawn. When the fun is done, guests can get some much needed rest and relaxation with the spa’s Signature Dimanche Gras Massage, combining aromatherapy, warm stone, Swedish and deep tissue massage, and the Golden Coconut Body Scrub, an organic treatment that uses roasted coconut and coconut oil to stimulate metabolism and restore the body’s natural glow.

“We know that Carnival-goers want the full island experience when visiting Trinidad and that begins and ends at Spa Esencia,” says Spa Director Zahra Duncombe. “Using local ingredients, our customized wraps, massages and scrubs will have guests looking and feeling their best before and after the most anticipated event of the year.”

Visitors interested in taking the Carnival experience to the next level can look and feel the part by booking a Carnival inspired manicure, pedicure or professional make up application at Spa Esencia. With top of the line Jane Iredale Mineral Make Up loaded with UVA and UVB protection, Carnival-goers can embrace a full day of Carnival activities without worrying about make up and with perfect nails. Guests are encouraged to book the Festive Carnival make up application package as early as possible to ensure availability during the busy festival season.

Guests can book the Hyatt Spa Package at Hyatt Regency Trinidad to take full advantage of the spa with a $100 relaxation credit, full breakfast buffet for two and late checkout at 2 p.m. Room rates start at $289 per night, not including taxes.
