Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe
T’ai Spa, a charming oasis in Merida’s Colonia Monte Cristo, begins to work its magic upon first entering. Soft music and the scent of fresh flowers evoke an inviting, tranquil atmosphere while the friendly, professional staff immediately puts one at ease.
After check-in, I was lead up a candlelit staircase to the second floor changing room where I slipped into a robe before entering one of the private treatment rooms. Aglow with flickering candles, the modern yet warm ambience set the perfect tone for what was to be a blissful hour.
My Swedish massage began with a touch of aromatherapy. A few deep inhales of eucalyptus and I began to unwind. Throughout the process, compresses were used on key points of my body to warm the muscles and increase my sense of relaxation. The heated towels and mini-massage on my tired feet were especially welcome.
This was a relaxing treatment and not intensive muscle work. For a more profound or therapeutic approach, T’ai Spa offer a number of options including reflexology, lymphatic drainage and an overall wellness massage.
T’ai Spa also offers an array of other beauty and wellness services. A nail salon on the first floor is equipped with cozy chairs and features everything from a basic manicure or pedicure to more luxurious versions, which include massage, exfoliation and even a hot stone treatment. The spa is also well known for its facials including a skin corrective microdermabrasion treatment.
For those looking to celebrate a special event, a large treatment room on the second floor is dedicated to couples’ treatments and spa parties. In the reception area you will also find a small spa store featuring professional skin care lines, artisanal soaps, local beauty products and even organic nail polish.
Whatever the treatment, serenity and beauty reign at this chic and enchanting little spa.
