5 things resorts can do to enhance their guests’ sleep

There is no true wellness without great sleep. As a board-certified sleep specialist, I’ve worked for years with hospitality professionals to help them better meet their guests’ sleep needs. These are five of the most important steps I recommend:

A Wellness Experience: Careyes

Careyes, symbolized by the question mark that sits above the name, is an enigma to those who have yet to discover the 5000 acres of jungle, mangroves, beaches and cliffs spanning a 12 km stretch of Pacific coastline in the state of Jalisco. Alongside the question mark, an exclamation point symbolizes the wow factor guests and residents feel once they discover the essence of this eco-resort that pledges to limit development at 4% of the land, ensuring the preservation of this captivating environment and landscape.

Meditate with Essential Oils

Essential oils can be a powerful enhancement to the meditation experience due to their effect on neurotransmission. In meditation, we seek to quiet the mind and calm the nervous system, while awakening the consciousness.

Spa Experience: Away Spa at W Punta de Mita

Away Spa W Punta de Mita

Located between the jungle and the sea of the Riviera Nayarit, W Punta de Mita surprises you on arrival with a stunning mosaic pathway created using 751,184 tiles incorporating Huichol icons such as eagles, snakes and the eye of God. The mosaic begins at the lobby and continues through the resort to a viewpoint overlooking the sea. It represents the path of life, rising and falling, until the soul transcends to the next life in front of the Huichol goddess of the sea, Haramara.

Liferhythms: A guided meditation to create personalized affirmations with music

Liferhythms sound healing

As personalized sound healing and music compositions explode into the wellness space, I found the approach of LifeRythms uniquely interesting. Audio alchemist, Robert Alexander offers customized affirmation sessions, easily scheduled virtually. The session is akin to a guided meditation and the client is asked to prepare by ensuring they have a calm and quiet space to connect online and with the intention of getting in touch with their feelings to aid the flow of the session. Starting with the discovery phase, Robert will learn about your current life experience and intentions for the future before asking you to embark on an inward journey. Guided visualization helps uncover behavior patterns; potential blocks are identified before affirmations are finalized and recorded verbally.

Spa Experience: Sadahaka Healing Sounds Retreat at Holistika Tulum

Holistika Tulum: Sadahaka Healing Sounds Retreat

Situated on the outskirts of Tulum, a small beach town on the Riviera Maya, Holistika Tulum is tucked away next to the jungle. Host to healing retreats and a wide variety of wellness activities, Holistika has become a ‘mecca’ of sorts, for those looking for connection with mother earth and spirituality, and disconnection from daily life.
