Mexico’s Velas Resorts this winter is opening Grand Velas Los Cabos and its Spa. The two-level, 35,000 square-foot spa will have 16 treatment rooms, some with a water view, and the latest treatment technology and products of the Earth, traditional in the Mexican culture. A guided water journey, kids’ and teens’ treatments, bridal suite, salon, and barber shop will also be available. http://loscabos.grandvelas.com/.
The spa menu will offer more than 20 treatments organized into Ceremonies. The Ceremony of Mexico features a fusion of flavors, aromas and refreshing touches from traditional healers with treatments such as:
- Blue Agave Candle Massage
- Blue Agave Exfoliation
- Tequila Cream Massage
- Ancient Stone Massage
- Chocolate Wrap
A guest’s true essence and light emits after facials in the Light Ceremony. Body treatments in the Sand Ceremony of Sun & Sea connect one with the Earth, sky and sea. The Ceremony of Well-Being offers restoring massages, including a K-AHA-L (water in the Cochimí natives’ language) Massage. The Ceremony of Grand Velas includes longer rituals, such as the pre-Hispanic rooted Organic Agave Ritual (120 min). For couples is the Ceremony of Yaakunah (love for two).
World renowned spa consultant Diana Mestre conceptualized the international spa menu with Spa Director Josselyn De la Mora Alvarado. The spa menu also will feature some of the most requested treatments from its sister properties in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit. Signature treatments center around the Blue Agave plant native to Mexico and its pre-Columbian ancestral healing benefits.
Included in any treatment of 50 minutes or more, a seven step water journey features a eucalyptus-scented steam room with chromotherapy, polar pool, aromatherapy sensory shower, sauna, Jacuzzi and multi-sensory pool. The central pool features several hydro elements such as powerful massaging faucets for neck and back and bubble beds, carved-stone chaises with jets set just underneath the surface of the water on which guests recline.
A spa valet will provide personalized direction, while a men’s barber shop will complement beauty salon services for women and haircuts for babies.
