Resort: Ti Kaye Resort & Spa
Location: Anse Cochon, Saint Lucia
Project Involvement: October 2015-July 2016


The resort is often described as inspired by nature; each cottage purposely built into the landscape, drawing from the beauty of its lush natural surroundings


This beautiful cliffside property nurtures a deep connection to its natural surroundings and a strong bond with the local community. Core Essence brought these relationships further to the forefront with our refresh of the resort’s Kai Koko Spa, an intimate retreat built with Saint Lucian coconut wood that overlooks the restorative waters of the Caribbean Sea. Here, we led the development of a new brand concept, the creation of all programming, services and products (including an exclusive skincare line crafted in partnership with a local naturopathic doctor), and the provision of operations and guest-experience training. The spa has since seen positive growth across key performance indicators.
