Nizuc Spa recently introduced an array of advanced technology, med-spa services offering guests a multitude of options such as lifting and firming facials, in addition to slimming, toning and body sculpting treatments. The TempSure facial utilizes radio frequency to firm the skin and treat wrinkles and fine lines, far from feeling like med-spa treatment, this luxury, collagen boosting facial is extremely enjoyable as the warm, smooth device slides over the skin almost like a mini hot-stone treatment for the face. Set in the stunning Nizuc Spa treatment rooms, these services offer a lever of comfort rarely found in a traditional med-spa, creating a relaxing and serene experience.

Nizuc Spa also offers a variety of traditional, holistic treatments; one excellent option is the Sarani Luna Shakti, starting with a foot bath and an oracle card selection, an intention for the treatment is set. The massage incorporates warm green jade rollers and rhythmic, energy balancing strokes invoking a feeling of revitalization.

The hydrotherapy circuit at Nizuc is not to be missed, included with spa treatments guests are invited to enjoy the glass front sauna, experience showers, a steam room where face and body exfoliation products are provided and the sensorial pool with a variety of jets and bubble beds. Contrast heat treatments with the refreshing cold plunge pool and the ice room with a cold mist shower and ice application. There is also an outdoor hydrotherapy pool with jets and sun loungers where couples can relax and enjoy the space together. The highlight of this hydrotherapy journey is the final stop at the heated thermal loungers where an attendant performs a face cleanse and hair treatment with scalp massage, the perfect prelude to a Nizuc Spa treatment experience.

With a unique vantage point at the southern tip of Cancun’s hotel zone peninsula, Nizuc’s luxuriously furnished suites offer guests stunning views and incredible sunsets. Select the Master Suite to enjoy an infinity pool stretching the length of the expansive room. Savor a variety of exquisite food around the resort; choose from fresh Peruvian cuisine at Ni such as ceviches, seafood and typical Peruvian snacks of corn and plantain or enjoy traditional pan asian delicacies at Indochine such as Peking duck and mango sticky rice. Wellness activities around the resort include yoga, stand up paddle boarding, fitness classes and fully equipped gymnasium.

The exclusive NIZUC Resort is located on the southern tip of Cancun’s hotel zone, Punta Nizuc. Nizuc Resort is the inaugural property of a new elite luxury brand from Las Brisas Hotel Collection. Aptly named (NIZUC, a Mayan word for a ridge of land or rock jutting out into water) as the resort enjoys tranquil lagoon waters and expansive sea views. With just 274 suites over 29 acres, this spacious resort boasts ‘exquisitely refined’ service with Mexican Sprit and a Mayan soul.

NIZUC SPA, the first ESPA branded spa in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, covers 30’000 sq. ft. offering 12 spa suites including 2 for couples, a beauty salon, nail bar, fitness center, movement studio and spa café with a whole foods dining approach. The comprehensive thermal experience area includes an aromatic steam room, experience showers, sauna, ice fountain and cool mist shower, vitality pool with hydrotherapy elements and jets, solarium, thermic loungers and relaxation lounge.

The experience is not to be rushed, with a well-trained spa attendant guiding your journey through the hydrotherapy experiences culminating in a relaxing hair treatment with scalp massage on the warm thermic loungers. All of this before the actual spa treatment even begins.

The spacious outdoor spa area includes a co-ed hydrotherapy pool and sun lounge area, great for couples. A walk
through the tranquil Zen Garden-like outdoor area will take you to the treatment rooms, tastefully designed
with natural materials in cool, neutral tones.

‘Feel Perfect’ Back, Face and Scalp Treatment is renowned as ESPA’s ‘Hero’ treatment and commences
with a back massage followed by a customized facial then a hair mask and scalp massage, leaving you relaxed
and rejuvenated. All of the therapists at NIZUC SPA BY ESPA are specially trained to uphold ESPA’s exceptional
standards. Offering a fusion of advanced European therapies layered with ancient Mayan healing rituals, the NIZUC treatments allow guests the opportunity to indulge in a unique and unforgettable spa experience.

“We are delighted to be opening our first ESPA branded spa in the Mexican Caribbean region,” says Susan Harmsworth, MBE, CEO and Founder of ESPA. “The magnificent 30,000 sq. ft. wellness facility features breathtaking ocean views, unparalleled treatments, and a sense of secluded serenity creating the ultimate sanctuary.
Designed for discerning guests, NIZUC SPA BY ESPA offers the ultimate spa journey with the exemplary standards
and luxurious features that ESPA is known for.”
