Fodor's Puerto Vallarta, 5th Edition
Ohtli Spa Review
The modern yet organic-looking Ohtli spa and its high-tech gym offer 22,000 square feet of elegant pampering. You can relax before or between treatments in the lounge with a glass of water infused with love in the form of pink quartz crystals and messages of love in 13 languages. Come early to load up on this liquid love and to enjoy the cold pool, steam, sauna, and other elements of the separate men's and women's spa facilities. Inspiration for this tasteful, soothing spa came from indigenous cultures. Treatment rooms are adorned with Huichol art and interior gardens to maintain a spiritual and nature-oriented mood. Many of the treatments—like the hydrating tequila-coconut body treatment—use local ingredients. The signature exfoliation treatment contains agave essence and sea salt. Body Treatments & Services: exfoliation (9 kinds); wraps (8 kinds); massage (10 kinds). Beauty Treatments: facials (6 kinds); manicure; pedicure; waxing; children's treatments. Prices: body treatments $75–$135; facials $105–$145; hair $25–$95; manicure or pedicure $30–$72; waxing $18–$60. Packages: vows-renewal ritual; other packages offered seasonally.
