Top 5 R&R Retreats in Mexico
Spa retreats have become a must-have experience for almost everybody, and resort spas across Mexico are leading the way. Just where should you schedule your next retreat to absolute bliss? We have a few suggestions.
Le Blanc Spa Resort
It's all in the name at this sophisticated adults-only luxury hideaway – hailed by Condé Nast Traveler as "a slice of heaven" – on a tranquil beach in Cancun's famous Hotel Zone. The resort's BlancSpa is an intimate, indulgent world where soothing treatment suites set the scene for a robust menu of rejuvenating massages, aromatherapy, reflexology, and hydrotherapy, backdropped by breathtaking views of the Nichupté Lagoon. But the indulgence is everywhere at this haven – yes, it's all-inclusive – and extends to the services of your own personal butler as well as a seven-course tasting menu at Lumiere, specializing in French-fusion cuisine.
Nizuc Resort & Spa
Travel+Leisure named this jewel one of its "Top 10 Resort Hotels in Mexico," and some time spent at the spa will show you exactly why: The palatial ESPA-managed enclave honors Cancun's Mayan past in its design and treatments, led by the Nizuc Thermal Experience, encompassing an aromatic steam room, sauna, ice fountain, plunge pool, solarium, heated lounge chairs, outdoor spa pool, and vitality pool with hydromassage nozzles. It all adds up to ultimate rejuvenation. Retreat to your soundproof suite with exquisite modern décor, plush bedding, and panoramic ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive private terraces.
An all-inclusive adults-only boutique property, this über-posh designer hotel on Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta invites you to dive into a wide range of water sports, plus tennis, squash, and beach volleyball. Take one of the resort's Zen walks, which will guide you through the jungle and onto the warm sands. Either way, the perfect follow-up is found at Spa Imagine, where a moisturizing body scrub and wrap detoxifies and replenishes your skin. This warm cocoon enhances the therapeutic properties of the elements and is prelude to a luxurious full-body massage – complemented by 360° views of unspoiled ocean and lush rainforest.
A legend in Los Cabos, this exclusive hideaway is a favorite of movie stars, celebrities, and global jet setters, thanks to its refined tranquility. Why? Maybe it's the sensuously elegant guest rooms. Or Jack Nicklaus' awesome golf course. Or unrivaled cuisine by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. More likely, it's the spa's carefully crafted rituals that virtually guarantee personal rejuvenation and renewal, thanks to highly trained therapists, the purest extracts of natural ingredients, and a setting of exceptional serenity and comfort that highlights exquisite spa villas, hot and cold rock pools, steam rooms, saunas, and outdoor relaxation areas.
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit
Run away to a sun-drenched refuge where relaxation, indulgence, and meditation are the norm. Overlooking Banderas Bay in Riviera Nayarit, this all-inclusive resort is all about utter luxury, sheer romance, understated beauty, and an unmatched spa experience. The power and healing of water is the enterpiece of the spa's Grand Velas Water Ceremony. This rejuvenating circuit will led you to the muscle-relaxing Jacuzzi, the sauna's dry heat, natural Eucalyptus Inhalation, steam with chromotherapy, the invigorating hot and cold lagoon, and sensation shower. Finish your calming journey with hydro-reflexology.
