Why merely relax when you can transform? The Muluk Spa at Hotel Xcaret Mexico is your gateway to the ancient traditions and healing practices of the Mayan culture. As you enter the spa’s expansive, open-air lobby you immediately connect with the lush topography of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Excavated from a rocky hillside of this jungle region, the spa opens onto a private river that runs through the entirety of Hotel Xcaret.

October 11-17, 2010, is Spa Week throughout major North American Cities. Since its launch in 2004, Spa Week has sought to make the benefits of a spa lifestyle affordable. “Bringing the spa experience to the masses was my goal,” says founder Cheryl Reid. “The concept was simple; full service treatments, normally costing from $100 to $200 dollars, for just $50 dollars. No longer would spa be relegated to the wealthy.”
And the menu goes beyond typical treatments such as massages and body wraps. Elite spa services like Caviar Facials and medical treatments including Botox injections and Chemical Peels are available for just $50.00 in select cities.
Booking is simple:
1) Sign up here.
2) Click on the sate or province of your choice.
3) Browse spas and treatments.
4) Contact the spa directly to book your appointment.
Early booking is recommended as treatments sell out quickly. And remember tip is not included in the price.
So treat yourself… because aching muscles know no economic boundaries, and dirty pores do not discriminate.
