Palenque Spa Review
On a peninsula between the beach and marina, this modern Maya temple of glass and marble is a cool, sweet-smelling oasis with separate wings for men and women; each is equipped with private hydrotherapy tubs, whirlpools, saunas, and steam rooms. The coed gym has state-of-the-art equipment and views of the ocean, plus aerobics classes in a separate studio and an indoor lap pool. The reasonably priced therapy selections are extensive, from an anti-cellulite seaweed wrap to milk baths with honey, amaranth, and orange oil to the aromatherapy massage, employing clove, sage, bergamot, and other essential oils. There's even a kids' spa menu with 15 treatments. Body Treatments: aromatherapy; facials; exfoliation; hot-stone massage; hydrotherapy; wraps, scrubs, and body treatments (10 types); reflexology; shiatsu. Beauty Treatments: facials (8 types), manicure, pedicure. Prices: body treatments $75–$170; facials $46–$134; manicure/pedicure $46–$72; hair $39–$101; waxing $19–$69. Packages: a wide variety of packages that allow switching treatments in an equivalent price bracket. The basic plan combines three 50-minute treatments: marine body scrub, holistic massage, and hydrating facial.
