Last week me and my husband traveled to Riviera Maya, Mexico to enjoy a few days of relaxation at the beautiful El Dorado Seaside Suites. It was a trip full of many firsts for my husband. His first trip out of the country besides being on a cruise, his first trip to Mexico, and his first day at the spa. I would be lying if I told you I was not surprised my husband agreed to spend the day at the spa, but I was happy nonetheless.
We decided on hydrotherapy, followed by a fifty minute deep tissue massage finished off with a fifteen minute facial. After checking in at the spa, we were lead to the mens/womens changing room area where we were both given a key to our own lockers that held our robe, flip flops, towel and shower cap. We were instructed to start with the sauna for five minutes followed by a shower and then five minutes in the eucalyptus steam room. We did not get to enjoy these activities together since the men and women's changing areas are separated, however after finishing our time in the steam room we were reunited and ready to start the hydrotherapy.
The Hydrotherapy consisted of many different quick activities to rejuvenate your body. During the therapy your spa guide takes you on a water journey from additional time in a sauna and steam room together to a simmering whirlpool and a bracing soak in a very cold polar pool, culminating in the sensations pool, where powerful hydro jets, bubble beds and waterfalls soothe and relax your back, legs and spine. The Water Journey lasts approximately 45 minutes, and it’s a great way to prepare for additional body treatments. We enjoyed all of these activities together which was really nice. This was personally my favorite part of our time spent at the spa.
After completing our hydrotherapy we were directed to an area upstairs to relax in what is called the 'Quiet Area' where we sat on a leather lounger and awaited our masseuses to come and get us. They brought us to our private room where we enjoyed both our massage followed by our facials. From start to finish I would say we spent close to three hours during our time at the spa. Our time started at 9:30 am and I felt it was a great way to start the day and get us in the right mind set to truly enjoy relaxing for the rest of the day. Now that my husband has experienced how amazing a day at the spa is I am sure we will be able to enjoy it even more here at home.
