Starting the year and returning to work after a great holiday doesn’t have to be stressful, here we recommend the best spa to help you begin the year relaxed, balanced and ready to face 2019.
In times of spas and hydromassages, the Temazcal ritual – a kind of millennial spa – continues to attract a multitude of followers in Mexico, although more and more tourists from all over the world are being drawn to this unique experience to restore the body and soul.
This Mexican tradition symbolises gestation in the womb and remains very popular to this today with a huge fan base.
Become part of this experience which is intimately linked to nature stimulates circulation, accelerates your heart rate and awakens the lymphatic system. Once the temperature rises to about 40ºC, your skin acts as a “third kidney” and releases large amounts of toxins. Apparently, every litre of sweat lost in a temazcal equals a full day’s work by the kidneys.
Experiencing this journey to reconnect takes on a special significance at Blue Diamond Luxury Boutique Hotel*****GL, which has its own Temazcal, built according to tradition, and is available as an included service for all guests staying at the hotel. The Temazcal is located in the vicinity of a mystical Mayan Cenote and can accommodate up to 12 people at a time.
The ritual takes place in igloo-shaped rooms called “toritos,” representing the womb of Mother Earth. It is her and her four elements: earth, water, air and fire, whom the Aztecs gave thanks in the first Temazcal ritual.
In the past, the temazcal was primarily based on religious and spiritual beliefs. Today, it’s available to anyone who is interested, and experiencing it, symbolises a before and after in the person, whether it’s physical, mental or spiritual. Although the ritual always follows the same steps, each time is a new experience.
The Temazcal is one of the services offered within the hotel’s SPA which features a wide range of wellness treatments including special rituals, body and facial treatments and wraps.
All of them perfectly fulfil one of the hotel’s objectives which is to provide its guests with relaxing and rejuvenating experiences during their stay.
An accommodation option where rejuvenation is guaranteed, thanks to its construction along peaceful river waterways that are fed by a mystical Mayan Cenote in front of the Caribbean Sea.
If you go into the fully equipped SPA and wellness centre, you can enjoy different experiences based on ancient traditions such as the Egyptian Skin ritual that mixes massages with hydration to free yourself from stress or the Oriental Holistic treatment that transports you to the far east with exotic aromas.
