The Spa at Grand Velas Los Cabos Opens Late 2016 With Authentic Treatments & Guided Water Journey

Barber Shop for Men, Options for Kids and Teens & Two-Level Wellness Suites With Personal Juice Bars Up the Ante

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (August 24, 2016) - Mexico's Velas Resorts entices wellness travelers this winter with the opening of Grand Velas Los Cabos and its Spa in late 2016. Wellness offerings abound at the resort from the spa's innovative and authentic treatments to personal juice bars in over-the-top Wellness Suites. The two-level, 35,000 sq. ft. spa will have 16 treatment rooms, some with a water view, to enjoy treatments using the latest technology and products of the Earth, traditional in the Mexican culture. A guided water journey, kids' and teens' treatments, bridal suite, salon, and barber shop will also be available.

An authentic re-interpretation of luxury and well-being based on age-old rituals and treatments, the spa menu offers over twenty different treatments organized into Ceremonies. The Ceremony of Mexico features a fusion of flavors, aromas and refreshing touches from traditional healers with treatments such as:

- Blue Agave Candle Massage

- Blue Agave Exfoliation

- Tequila Cream Massage

- Ancient Stone Massage

- Chocolate Wrap

A guest's true essence and light emits after facials in the Light Ceremony. Body treatments in the Sand Ceremony of Sun & Sea connect one with the Earth, sky and sea. The Ceremony of Well-Being offers restoring massages, including a K-AHA-L (water in the Cochimí natives' language) Massage. The Ceremony of Grand Velas includes longer rituals, such as the pre-Hispanic rooted Organic Agave Ritual (120 min). For couples is the Ceremony of Yaakunah (love for two).

 World renowned spa consultant Diana Mestre conceptualized the international spa menu with  Josselyn De la Mora Alvarado, Spa Director. The spa menu features some of the most  requested treatments from its sister properties in Riviera Maya -voted "Best Spa in the World"  by Virtuoso - and Riviera Nayarit - multi-time recipient of  Condé Nast Johansens' Most  Excellent Spa Hotel - while signature treatments center around the Blue Agave plant native to  Mexico and its pre-Columbian ancestral healing benefits. 

 Included in any treatment of 50 minutes or more, a seven step water journey features a  eucalyptus-scented steam room with chromotherapy, polar pool, aromatherapy sensory shower, sauna, Jacuzzi and multi-sensory pool. The central pool features several hydro elements such as powerful massaging faucets for neck and back and bubble beds, carved-stone chaises with jets set just underneath the surface of the water on which guests recline. A spa valet provides personalized direction to make sure guests get the most out of the truly relaxing hydrotherapy experience — such as how to alternate the various hot and cold rooms and pools, and how long to linger in them. Upon completion of the journey, guests recline on heated loungers with warm neck pillows, cool scented towels and cucumbers on the eyes to ensure the body is fully relaxed for a treatment.

A men's barber shop complements beauty salon services for women and haircuts for babies. Massages, body treatments and facials for kids and teens are offered insuite. Pre-wedding services and treatments are available for brides, grooms and their wedding parties.

Six two-level Wellness Suites are also on tap for the resort. The suites are double height with lofted ceilings and feature a plethora of fitness and wellness amenities, such as Life Fitness recline bike, spa concierge, Vitamin C sprinkler, crudité minibar, aromatherapy kit, in-suite massage and more. All Wellness Suites face the spa with the second level being exclusive for the fitness amenities, inclusive of a juice bar with a wide selection of juices and healthy beverages.

A spa boutique, Life Fitness center, Spa Moments poolside and on arrival, and rooftop garden for meditation are also available for guests to embody the wellness experience.
