If you spend any time basking in the hydrotherapy circuit of the Village Spa during your vacation at Villa del Palmar Cancun or enjoy a heavenly massage or body treatment, you are sure to meet Francisco Lugo, the Manager at the Village Spa. After 3 years running the spa and organizing wellness events at the luxury resort, Francisco makes sure your experiences at Villa del Palmar Cancun are relaxing and inspiring. Here are his top tips for enjoying the Village Spa on your next visit.
Be sure to arrive to the spa at least 30 minutes before your treatment, preferably 1 hour so that you may enjoy the wet areas. Start with the steam room followed by the cold plunge pool to stimulate your circulation. Then alternate between the hot and temperate pools for relaxation.
Tzolkin Agave Ritual
The Tzolkin Agave Ritual is my personal favorite. It takes clients on a 120-minute journey which involves a number of soothing techniques including the placement of stones in specific locations on the body related to the position of the stars, one of our most complete anti-aging facials and a personalized massage which uses an aromatic agave butter. It is a treatment that is 100% Mexican using the most famous ingredient from our country: the blue agave, which is the plant used for making tequila. Agave has special properties such as anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits, and this treatment is great for the body as well as the face.
The rituals are a highlight of the Village Spa. Besides offering the best prices, you can try the very best treatments on the menu combining exfoliation to revive the skin and remove dead skin cells, moisturising treatments, detox techniques thermal masks, massages and facials. The rituals are a definite treat for hedonists and spa lovers.
The Village Spa gets involved in a number of the events at the resort. For example, on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day each year, it has become a tradition for us to set up an outdoor spa area to provide courtesy treatments for a couple of hours to moms and pops on their respective days. We arrange a similar treat on April 30 when Mexico celebrates El Día del Niño (Children’s Day). We will reserve the spa areas for children for 2 hours so they can enjoy the experiences that adults have throughout the year, preparing special services for children. October Wellness is another major event for us at the spa.
Future Plans for the Village Spa
The year ahead will be dedicated to renovations and improvements. It is likely that the Village Spa will not look the same in 2018. We are planning to improve the relaxation areas and refresh the look of our cabins. We also hope to redesign the beauty salon and work on changes to the spa menu to reflect the new products offered by the best cosmetic brands. We also have a new beach menu for those people who want to spend as much time as possible on the beach.
