Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe
Five impressive pyramid structures make up the Paradisus Cancun resort, overlooking the captivating white sand beach and bright turquoise ocean this destination is famous for. Abounding with greenery, trailing plants spill over each ledge inside the pyramids, creating a jungle illusion perfect for those who appreciate biophilic design.
Yhi Spa, created in the name of the goddess of light who dispelled darkness on earth, combines Mexican-inspired spa journeys with oriental influences. Bamboo and bonsai trees decorate the space creating a tranquil and zen atmosphere around the individual treatment cabañas of the spa garden area, set under the natural light filtering in from the glass apex of the pyramid. The open-air spa hydrotherapy facilities include a sauna, steam room, experience showers, and a hydrotherapy pool featuring a variety of jets to treat different levels of the back and legs in addition to the neck and shoulders. A cold plunge pool instantly revitalizes the body with a refreshing temperature of 7-9 degrees Celsius.
The Balinese Aromatic Massage is the highlight of their massage menu and provides the perfect balance of rhythm, flow and pressure, incorporating stretching techniques and aromatherapy to relieve tight muscles and leave the guests relaxed and energetically balanced. Therapists from both Mexico and Asia make up the team at Yhi Spa ensuring guests benefit from a multitude of massage skills from across the globe. A rejuvenating Age-Defying Facial at Yhi Spa increases skin oxygenation levels leaving the face feeling radiant after an ice cold mask is applied to firm and invigorate the skin.
Although the resort offers all-inclusive stays with a variety of restaurant options, guests also have the opportunity to visit Sal Steak Cave, an on-site restaurant exclusively for adults. Often host to visiting chefs and pop-up events, Sal offers guests an exceptionally high-quality dining experience and with a variety of culinary delights suitable also for pescatarians and vegetarians.
At every turn the staff at Paradisus are happy to help and guide guests with anything they need, ensuring all guests feel safe with measures taken to maintain sanitation and ‘social distancing’. A novel aspect was the all-inclusive bracelet design that functions as the room key also!
