Mélange World Spa

Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe

Mélange World Spa is part of Armony Luxury Resort & Spa, an adults-only property in Punta de Mita, Mexico. The resort is located steps from Destiladeras Beach and looks out on Banderas Bay, which is known for whale watching during the winter months.

Mélange, meaning ‘mixture of components’, is the concept that embraces and defines the philosophy of the Mélange World Spa. Located near the resort’s open-air reception area and one of the restaurants, the spa covers three floors. The first floor is spacious with high ceilings, large windows, plants, and couches, with the nail area located just off the welcome area. Guests take an elevator to the ground and upper floors. On the ground floor, the expansive changing and locker areas include a steam room. An outdoor hydrotherapy area surrounded by a natural garden includes a jacuzzi, cold plunge, and several lounge chairs. Guests can also enjoy the gym facilities on this level. The treatment rooms are located on the floor above the reception area/top floor. Relaxation areas include a space with loungers and plants, enclosed by sheer curtains. While most of the treatment rooms are on this floor, there are a few nestled among guest rooms which are just a short walk from the spa.

The Mélange World Spa menu focuses on signature experiences centered on cultures and rituals from nine countries – Bali (Indonesia), India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States. The Russia Banya Experience takes place in a room that includes an art display of matryoshka nesting dolls. The experience starts with a foot bath, and a presentation of Russian-themed food and drinks including salmon on toast, a chocolate truffle, vodka, and orange juice. Alternate between an in-room sauna and shower, followed by the Russian massage, a combination of therapeutic and sports massage developed in the former Soviet Union.

The Bali Aromatherapy Experience begins with a foot bath, followed by a mud massage that includes seven essential oils of cedar, sandalwood, lemon, peppermint, jasmine, spearmint, and a house blend. The Bali experience included watermelon juice, a curry sandwich, and a chocolate truffle. In addition to the world experiences, massage therapy; facials, and body treatments are offered at Mélange World Spa.
