These days, the word “awesome” is used for many things to which it should generally not apply. For example, lip gloss. “Awesome” is a word that is generally meant to inspire “awe” or “wonder,” leaving one speechless. Like the Grand Canyon. That’s why we can safely and proudly use it to describe our 2016 Noble Beach Prize Winner for Most SPAwesome Experience, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya’s Signature Spa.

In fact, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya’s Signature Spa is the very definition of “awesome.” (If you look up the word in the dictionary, you’ll see their picture.) They employ “body artisans” who derive their treatments from the ancient curative traditions of Mexico and who are, of course, at your beck and call. They live to serve up an authentic, very personal interpretation of luxury and well-being that will rock your world. They use a constellation of water, lighting, aromas, flavors and textures, which create a sensorial experience where unforgettable memories are born.

The delicious journey begins with hydrotherapy, which helps activate the metabolism – you enjoy water at a variety of temperatures. If you like, you can hoist yourself into hot and cold plunge pools. Even have a mud bath. You can dive into their rich menu that includes everything from the flavors and traditions of Mexico, to Face & Body Experiences, to Romantic Rituals. There are oceans more from which to choose. There’s a salon for your locks and mani/pedis. They even offer the exotic (and for the daring) Velas Fish foot therapy using Garra Rufa toothless fish.

If you’re not convinced by now that our 2016 Noble Beach Prize Winner is decidedly all that, here’s a bit more info: The Grand Velas Riviera Maya Signature Spa has been recognized as “Best Luxury Resort Spa-The Americas” in the World Luxury Spa Awards in 2014. It was also named one of the Best Spas in Mexico in 2015 by the Spa Professional Mexico magazine.
