Many prefer experiences to physical gifts, and what better experience than a wellness vacation? Even more under the sun of Mexico, which offers some of the most interesting wellness programs in the world, linked to the ancient rituals of the country and incorporating its abundant nature. Here are nine resorts in Mexico with restorative wellness programs to offer this Valentine’s Day. We even chose the special treatment you should receive during your stay.
1. Chablé Maroma – Romantic Ritual
If you’re going to take someone to Mexico as a Valentine’s Day gift, signing up for a romantic ritual should be a no-brainer. In Chablé Maroma, on the magnificent Riviera Maya, their romantic ritual begins with a footbath to symbolize getting back on the road as a couple. Afterwards, you will enjoy a 90-minute bespoke relaxing massage. Finally, you will feel a temperate oil poured over your third eye for optimal relaxation, followed by a soothing scalp massage. If you really want to up the ante, you can also add a sound ritual to this spa day, during which you will enjoy the powerful vibrations and tones of singing bowls, chimes and crystals, an immersive and invigorating experience.
2. Palmaia – Cocoa ceremony
Also located on the beautiful Riviera Maya, Palmaïa is a progressive wellness property with many thoughtful ceremonies, rituals, and treatments. The Cocoa Ceremony is particularly impressive in a green outdoor space and involves learning the history of cocoa, listening to a variety of instruments during the Cocoa Ceremony, and of course drinking cocoa.
