Beaches Turks and Caicos is one of the best family-friendly resorts in the world, offering all-inclusive service, an included water park, numerous pools, wonderful kids’ clubs, Sesame Street characters, a Sesame Street kids camp, entertainment, a gorgeous Grace Bay beach, multiple restaurants, water sports, and more. But if you are looking for a little break, consider booking a treatment at the Beaches Turks and Caicos Spa. It’s a great way to enjoy some quiet, relaxing time while you are on your vacation.
Disclosure: While I have received one complimentary stay and one upgrade, I’ve paid for three Beaches Turks and Caicos resort trips on my own. I also paid for my own spa treatment.

The Turks & Caicos islands really are a fantastic location for a vacation. The Beaches Resort is in a beautiful location for the whole family, and the resort is a great place to spend your time off together.

Booking Your Spa Treatment
Guests visiting the Beaches Turks and Caicos resort can look online in advance to see the various spa treatment options. I have been having some back and neck issues, so I decided to get a massage. I was traveling during one of the busiest weeks (President’s Day Week in February) and there was still some availability when I arrived at the resort. But if you have a busy schedule with limited time, you may want to reserve your treatment before you travel to the resort, especially if your travel dates line up with school vacation and/or a holiday.
If you choose to book your spa treatment once you arrive, you’ll have a few options. I’ve seen some of the spa staff walking around the pool areas offering sign-ups. If you don’t want to wait, you can either contact the Red Lane spa directly or work with your concierge (if you have a concierge service room).
Note that while there are two Red Lane spas at Beaches Turks and Caicos, most of the treatments seem to happen at the French Village location. There’s also a Red Lane Spa in the Key West area of the resort. When you book, make sure you know which location you’ll need to check in at because they are at opposite ends of the resort.
The French Village location is located across from Kimonos and Soy Sushi Bar. It’s a nice quiet location, perfect for a spa.
When choosing a date and time, think a little bit about how you plan to spend your vacation. In general, I would try to avoid getting treatments at any point when you may be sunburned. I also prefer to wait a bit after eating.
I decided to book mine for about half-way through our trip. I didn’t want to interrupt my beach and pool time on our last days.
Most of the massages run for either an hour or an hour and a half. Some of these treatments have the option of choosing which duration you prefer. I chose a one-hour Himalayan Salt Stone Massage.
There are also couples massages as well as mom/daughter, or dad/son massages. Tween and teen treatments are also available.
Arrival at the Beaches Turks and Caicos Spa
I booked a massage for 2:00 pm, but was asked to arrive at 1:30 pm. While that did seem like an early arrival, it ended up being the right time. Be sure to arrive on time.
After checking in at the small reception area to the left of the entrance, I was provided with a tablet with a release form that I needed to sign. Then I was directed across the small courtyard to the main treatment area along with the other 2:00 pm treatment guests. You’ll be guided toward the male and female locker facilities.
I was provided with a locker (which locks with a key card) along with a robe and sandals. The locker room is relatively small with one bathroom and a few changing rooms, so it took a few minutes to get ready. Then, I was directed toward a small, peaceful waiting room until I was called for my treatment.
Treatment at the Beaches Turks and Caicos Spa
At a resort with beautiful views and amazing amenities, a spa treatment really has to stand out to make it worth leaving the beach and pools. This Himalayan salt stone massage was absolutely worth it. It was probably the best massage I ever had, and was incredibly relaxing.
While I opted for the shorter massage (one hour), it went by so quickly. For future visits, I’ll probably try to book a longer massage.
Leaving After My Treatment
When my spa treatment was complete, I was directed back to the locker room to change out of my robe and into my regular clothes. While the changing rooms do have showers, they are fairly limited. I found that it was just easier to change back into my clothes and then shower at home.
When you check out, you’ll be given your invoice to pay. I found it easiest to just add the charge to my room. Be sure to let them know if you are eligible for any discounts through your Sandals Select Rewards level. As an emerald member, I received a 10% discount.
You’ll also be able to add any gratuities to your bill. While most of the tips for your Beaches trip are included in the price, the spa is an exception. Check to see if there is an automatic gratuity added – for me there was, but I did want to add to it.
Facilities at the Spa
In addition to the treatment rooms, there are some other facilities at the spa. A fitness center, with both indoor and outdoor rooms, is available at the French Village spa, and there’s also another fitness center in the Key West spa. There was also a sauna in the locker room, although I didn’t use it.
The spa reception area does have a small retail area with some premium products for purchase. All of the guest rooms also have Red Lane toiletry items for a little treat for guests.
