Mexico’s AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya rings in the New Year with new Vitamin C showers, spa treatments and collection of spa paths. Vitamin C showers in the men and women’s showers lightly spritz guests on command with a warm bath of vitamin C essential oils, providing antioxidant and regenerative properties for the skin.
An authentic interpretation of luxury and wellbeing where water, lighting, aromas, flavors and textures converge, each spa path is enhanced by a specialty tea pairing, paying homage to the ancient curative traditions of Mexico that work to balance and harmonize the body, mind and soul.
Part of the Path to Renovation, the Artisan Stones Massage and Damask Rose Experience are new treatments that allow the skin to breathe and feel refreshed, complemented with organic Bombay Chai Black Tea Forté. The Artisan Stones Massage ($342/80 min) is inspired by ancestral knowledge of volcanic minerals and helps to shape, tighten tissue, firm and define one’s outline through a mixture of volcanic and active ingredients. A revitalizing experience that intensely nourishes skin, the Damask Rose Experience ($342/80 min) is a micro-exfoliating emulsion that remarkably soothes the skin’s texture, followed by a massage incorporating Damask rose oil, leaving the skin hydrated and soft.
Additional paths and tea pairings consist of the Path to Wisdom, served with Honey Yuzu Tea Forté; Path to Illumination, served with Citrus Mint Tea Forté; Path to Wellbeing, served with Orchid Vanilla Tea Forté; and the Path of Healing, served with Green Mango Peach Tea Forté.
