Ja’Vonne and I decided to take one of our spa treatments outdoors on the beach. At first I didn’t think I would be able to relax with all the activity around me. The minute I got on the table and Christina began working on my neck, shoulders and back, I felt the stress leave and relaxation take it’s place. The sound of the waves, the music in the distance, the gentle breeze off of the ocean and the skillful hands working their magic, I was off in a different world. 50 minutes went by quickly but I felt like a different person when I got off the table.
My body was on point, now it was time to take care of the spirit. SPAzul incorporates the Maya-inspired Saas Spa total health and well-being concept to their menu. The “whole” being is treated not just the individual parts. The body, mind and spirit are reached in equal measure. It was time for me to experience Temazcal: An Ancient Mayan Ritual of Purification, Detoxification and Rebirth. You may know this as a sweat lodge or steam house. A Shaman guides you through your journey through conversation, listening, and revealing from your inner most self. I won’t go into my experience with you because it is my experience. I will say I left the hut with a new understanding of me.
After any treatment that you have at SPAzul you must take time to relax in the sauna, hot tub or steam room. Lie on one of the relaxing chairs and enjoy the full experience your spa experience.
SPAzul is one of my favorite spas. When you visit The ROYAL in Playa Del Carmen or Cancun you owe it to yourself to set aside time to “”indulge your senses, engage your spirit, and savor the surprises.”
Until next time, keep your EYE to the sky!
