Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe
Surrounded by the historical sights and sounds of colonial Mexico, Sense Spa in the Rosewood San Miguel is a sophisticated sanctuary for all of your senses. The spa’s philosophy “blends a combination of luxury, simplicity and choice, providing each guest with a sense of balance, individuality, and place”. Balance is provided with a full selection of services planned specifically to feed your soul, nourish your body, and calm your mind. Individuality comes in the unique service menu that can be custom tailored to one’s own personal needs. The sense of place is fused with the character of the city of San Miguel de Allende. After a full day of walking through the quaint colonial streets of this creative town (and receiving a natural reflexology treatment), the Cobblestone Pedicure is especially designed to take care of your tired feet.
Sense Spa caters to each and every one of your five senses – sight, sound, taste, smell and of course, touch. Your first sensation is one of smell – the soft and delicate blend of grapefruit, lime, lavender and citrus soothe you immediately as you pass through the doors. The lavender that you smell, and that is infused into many of the treatments, expands the sense of place, as lavender blossoms carpet the surrounding countryside. Sense Spa, like most of the extraordinarily giving community of San Miguel, prides itself on its contribution to the local villagers by buying lavender oil, soaps, sachets and neck cushions from the Lavender Project, a local women’s commune that grows the lavender and produces the products, providing the women and their families with much-needed income. Treatments like the Lavender de Allende Scrub, a luxurious service consisting of exfoliation and massage with local hot quartz stones, are based on the smell and relaxing health benefits of local lavender flowers.
The sense of place continues as you walk through the calming architectural environment of Sense Spa, where the sounds of serenity serenade you. Views of the fabled gothic pink Parroquia church, the crown jewel of San Miguel, are visible through the spa windows. Local customs and traditions, such as bathing in the nearby thermal water pools are combined with a signature spa treatment made from local Mole and cocoa sauce, soothing your senses and stimulating your appetite for the taste of Mexican spa cuisine made from the organic produce that abounds in San Miguel.
