In need of some unwinding? These five resorts incorporate cultural traditions, local ingredients and some of the most innovative treatments being used today, all in an effort to relax guests.

Barceló Gran Faro Los Cabos

Forgiveness Meditation Sessions: The spa has recently incorporated bilingual (English and Spanish) guided forgiveness meditation sessions into its program. Participants are required to remain silent for the entire duration of the session and some are even in tears by the end of it and feel like they’ve reached a place of peace and serenity following the culmination of the session. All spa therapists are required to do yoga first thing in the morning prior to their shifts to ensure they all achieve the mind-body balance they need to transfer positive energy to every guest throughout the day.

Barceló Maya Grand Resort

Flotation Experience: Achieve total relaxation while solo or as a couple with this unconventional spa experience. Guests are led into a dark dome-shaped room where the ceiling embodies the vast Milky Way with sultry shining stars. In the room two tubs are filled with water infused with Epsom salts that allow the human body to naturally float. All notion of time and space disappear when laying in this flotation booth. This treatment will restore vitality through the special salts and it’s followed by an intensive body moisturizing treatment, which leaves the skin smooth, soft and revitalized. (pictured)
