From a menu of signature gemstone rituals inspired by the Sierra Range to a healing herbal bath in a tub carved from a black Zapote tree in the Riviera Maya to a chromotherapy treatment in Scottsdale, which combines dry heat and the power of color, wellness spa experiences are more creative than ever. Below are five transformational spa experiences on our 2020 wish list.
Wayak, the Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya | Riviera Maya, MX
Located at the center of the property, the spa’s circular configuration echoes the holistic philosophy that guides WAYAK, the Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya’s experience and inspires its marine and herbal treatments. The healing powers of the jungle come full-circle with Mayan-inspired treatment rooms overlooking waterfalls and providing the natural healing sound of water immersed in lush greenery and the bright, soothing shore. Soak in the natural elements of the Riviera Maya with the 80-minute Xaman-Ek (Love Ritual) which follows the Mayan belief that the southern star guided the footsteps of those on to the path to love, understanding, harmony and abundance. The experience begins with a foot ritual, followed by a relaxing massage with unique essences of love to balance the chakras and ends with a healing herbal bath in a tub carved from a black Zapote tree while meditating the Mayan words that will be written in couples hearts forever. For solo travelers, the Sac Ha’ (Harvest) ceremony is a healing ritual complete with a coffee scrub to cleanse and detoxify the body, followed by a relaxing massage under warm rain. It all leaves guests with a sense of peace and tranquility, while the skin regains energy and retains its natural beauty.
Experience revitalizing benefits for body and soul with VH Spa’s saunas featuring chromotherapy. Dry heat detoxifies while raising core body temperature less than steam. Choose your own color of chromotherapy light, with benefits ranging from improved circulation to emotional balance and calm. The Power of Color: Light is made up of seven fundamental colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each color awakens different stimuli, positively affecting both body and soul.
Spa at Marquis Los Cabos All-Inclusive Resort & Spa| San Jose del Cabo, Baja California, Mexico
Regenerate skin with Marquis Los Cabos’ signature O2 Bamboo, a unique full-body experience at Spa Marquis that stimulates circulation, muscle tone, revitalizes, firms and reduces stress. Regarded as a token of longevity and strength, bamboo continues to be used as a key resource in beauty and wellness regime. The deeply hydrating body treatment fortifies and smoothes skin while aiding skin cell regeneration. Rich in minerals and amino acids, the bamboo sap act as a humectant to draw moisture in to deeper layers of skin to help maintain hydration where it’s need most.
Rancho La Puerta | Tecate, MX
Located on 4,000 acres of sacred land below Mt. Kuchumaa in Tecate, Mexico, Rancho La Puerta provides guests with a unique spiritual and mental wellness escape. At the spa, guests can connect spiritually to rebalance themselves with one of the Ranch’s 5 Element energy treatments based on the earth’s five elements — earth, fire, metal, water and wood. Treatments are based on ancient healing practices, balancing the five elements to restore the Qi (pronounced “chi”), the vital energy of body and mind in areas that have become unbalanced by mental, emotional and physical disturbances. Each one of the five elements has a specific purpose, protocol and massage oil blend. All treatments start with a dry brushing to prepare skin for the aromatherapy blends that help connect and balance the body and mind.
The Spa Edgewood experience is inspired by the distinctive natural elements that surround the luxe resort from South Lake Tahoe to the Sierra Ranges. In keeping with this aesthetic, Edgewood Tahoe has debuted a menu of signature gemstone rituals incorporating native Smoky Quartz and other gems found throughout the Alpine Mountains. Expert therapists combine healing techniques with gems, crystals, and stones with age-old traditions that leave guests feeling refreshed, recharged and enlightened. The Earth Connection Ritual treatment starts with an invigorating dry brush exfoliation paired with the fresh aromas of the “Meditate” essential oil blend of sandalwood, frankincense, ginger root, clove, cardamom, and sweet orange. Followed by a detoxifying foot scrub and hydrating foot treatment and a full-body basalt stone massage the ritual culminates with a stimulating peppermint and wild lime scalp treatment leaving guests feeling grounded from head to toe.
