Conrad Spa Tulum elegantly combines nature and luxury, incorporating open air spaces, jungle views and elements of the indigenous Maya culture of the region. This alfresco spa, stylishly designed with slate gray tile and natural wood, offers guests heat experiences of sauna and steam, a sensation shower with chromotherapy and hot and cold pools, all combined for males and females to enjoy together.
A beautiful lounge area surrounding a tranquil fountain boasts zero gravity lounge chairs and thermal loungers next to a small refreshment area. After enjoying these facilities follow the wood panelled pathway through the individual treatment suites to the dynamic pool, also an outdoor experience under a grand palapa. Jets for the legs and back, a water cascade and bubble beds create a variety of options to enjoy this hydrotherapy water ritual before proceeding to individual treatments.
Rituals at Conrad Spa Tulum are initiated with a copal cleansing of the energy and a short meditation to set the scene. The signature four handed Kinich Ahau Journey, begins with an energetic cleansing of the four points using a herb bundle. Choreographed to pre-Hispanic music, two therapists conduct the massage in synchronization, also incorporating hot poultices and medicinal herbs from the spa’s own garden, designed to help the guest regain inner strength.
The Quartz Sand Massage evokes the feeling of lying on a beach, the warm quartz crystals cradle the body helping the energy of the therapist’s movements flow while a cooling rose quartz crystal mask is gently laid over the face.
Open to guests at both Conrad Tulum and Hilton Tulum, in addition to other Hilton properties in the region, Conrad Spa Tulum creates an energetic sanctuary of calm to rest and recharge.
