Superstars (such as Kate Upton et al), models, trendies and the usual cast of incrowd snowbirds heading to Cancun this winter for some sexy fun in the sun can supplement beach time with some prime pampering at Gem Spa at the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach hotel. Named one of the Best 25 Spas of Mexico 2014 by Spa Professional Mexico, the 40,000 square-foot, two-story, gem-inspired facility offers awesome spa treatments utilizing chakra-balancing gems, a unique ten-step hydrotherapy ritual, sophisticated design elements and luxurious spa amenities.
The spa houses 26 treatment rooms including ten multi-functional rooms, six massage and facial rooms and five couples’ treatment rooms plus a pair of spa master suites with hydro massage tubs and color therapy, one VIP spa couples suite with a double Jacuzzi tub and steam room and two shiatsu and Thai massage rooms.
After a night of making the rounds at Cancun’s cool bars and lounges you might want to hit the spa for a steam or sauna (to sweat all the booze out) and book one of these to revive yourself:
The 10-step hydrotherapy ritual offers a body and soul revival, a journey through the healing qualities of water in all its forms that includes a guided “circuit” with aromatherapy steam room, multi-jet shower, clay steam room, ice room, sauna, rain shower, whirlpool, lagoon pool, a “pool of sensation” filled with bubble and floor geysers, water cascades and neck jets. Through contrasts of warm and cool temperatures combined with high and low water pressures, skin is soothed, cleansed, invigorated and refreshed by the experience which ends in the relaxation lounge where fresh juices, water and fruits await. The ritual is complimentary with any spa booking and is recommended prior to treatments.
Gem Therapy Treatments
Inspired by the natural healing elements of gems from three distinct regions of the world – the Mayan Riviera, the South Pacific and Asia, and the Baltic. Various gem stones indigenous to these regions such as tiger’s eye, amber, amethyst, jade, and obsidian are utilized to balance the seven chakras located throughout the body. Amber, which is known in the Baltic region for its restorative and negative energy-fighting properties, works to boost the appearance of skin in the Amber Amulet Ritual. Jade, considered the “sovereign of harmony” in Mayan culture, is utilized as a relaxation stone in the Mayan Jade Four Hands Massage. A selection of signature treatments integrates the use of diamond dust including the Diamond Dust Body Exfoliation and Massage.
Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort and Spa is designed to pamper with 602 all-suite ocean front accommodations, each with a private terrace facing the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and lagoon-like pool. The top two floors are dedicated to the Grand Club, which provides lavish services and above-and-beyond amenities both pool and beachside as well as a dedicated lounge and concierge service.For more information click on www.coralbeachcancunhotel.com or call 1-888-830-9008.
