These all-inclusive resorts in Mexico cater to VIP clients who can’t tear themselves away from their wellness-focused lifestyle.
Though Palladium Hotel Group offers Wellness Suites at several of its properties, we’ve put the spotlight on the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa in Riviera Nayarit, which features Deluxe Wellness Suites. This is the ideal accommodation option for clients who take their healthy lifestyle with them while vacationing. It includes an anti-stress relaxation kit and personalized fitness programs, as well as jacuzzi and spa access, and a couple’s massage. The accommodation comes with a memory foam mattress and there’s also an in-room hydromassage bath, as well as access to the saltwater pool. Healthy bites are also part of the mix, with menus designed exclusively for guests. Recommend clients get the 80-minute Exclusive Zentropia Therapy at the resort’s Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness center as it features six techniques including a relaxing massage, shiatsu, stretching, aromatherapy and reflexology.
A Trio of Spa Escapes
One of the most important facets of a truly healthy lifestyle is being well-rested, and at the adults-only Royal Hideaway Playacar in Riviera Maya, part of the Barcelo Hotel Group, there’s a signature Under the Stars massage right before bedtime that is just what the doctor ordered. The treatment begins outside (only after 6 p.m.) on a sleep-approved massage table next to the spa pool lit up only by candlelight and complemented with relaxing music. The treatment starts off with a foot ritual, followed by an 80-minute massage that features a special blend of essential oils
to help induce sleep. It all ends with the perfect nightcap—a special curated tea. Our favorite room category at this resort? The 1,270-sq.-ft. Ocean View Suite with king
bed and butler service.
Outdoor enthusiasts, meanwhile, are catered to at Barcelo Huatulco, located on the shores of Tangolunda Bay. The resort, which is home to the U-Spa, offers a sports massage that is ideal for those who need to decompress after an adventure-filled day. The massage targets areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Here, recommend the 1,173-sq.-ft. Premium Level Deluxe Oceanfront Suite with views of the Pacific.
Culinary-inspired spa treats, meanwhile, are waiting for clients who head off to Occidental Cozumel, located at the south end of the island and surrounded by tropical mangrove and manicured gardens. There, the Chocolate Body Wrap and Tequila Citrus Body Wrap use a combination of ingredients, such as tequila, chocolate and agave extracts, as well as vitamins, to act as antioxidants and as a source of anti-stress. Room choice? The 839.58-sq.-ft. Royal Level Junior Suites located on the third floor, which feature a fully equipped living room and a master bedroom with a king-size bed.
Healthy Lifestyle on the Road
The Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya features the Fresh Fix F&B concept, featuring a healthier culinary experience by highlighting unique flavors and natural ingredients—there are even not-so-sinful desserts. While keeping their diet in check, guests can also take part in exercise-to-music group fitness classes. Through a weekly visiting instructor program, LES MILLS offers guests three daily classes from a collection of 14 training programs, and classes are customized to fit the fitness level of each guest. And, of course, the recent opening of the Camp Woodward Riviera Maya facility is ideal for adrenaline junkies who love to participate in action sports, including indoor snowboarding and snow skiing. When they are done for the day, recommend clients retire to the luxuries of the resort’s allergy-friendly rooms, with an air purification system, hypoallergenic mattress and pillow encasement, and a Pure tea tree oil cartridge.
