ME Time! My Spa Vacation at Finest Playa Mujeres

ME Time! My Spa Vacation at Finest Playa Mujeres

A spa vacation at Finest Playa Mujeres? Why YES, I would love to, GRACIAS! My treat from me to me for surviving the madness of 2019 and to start the new decade off refreshed, rejuvenated and exfoliated. As a single mom running her own business, I rarely take time for myself but dang it, I earned this trip and I’ve returned home reinvigorated, motivated and ready to rock!

Spa Vacation at Finest Playa Mujeres

Walking in to the lobby of Finest Playa Mujeres I took a deep breath of the lovely scented air (aromatherapy right from the get-go!), took a sip of my welcome drink and after a quick message to my mother that I had arrived, I shut off my phone. I SHUT OFF MY PHONE. I’d love to tell you that I kept it off all week but we all know that didn’t happen, but I did manage to go full days without incessantly checking my email or answering my daughter’s “Please tell grandma I can have cookies” messages. While it wasn’t a “complete” digital detox, I did enjoy disconnecting and being in the moment is this beautiful place.

Finest Playa Mujeres Hydrotherapy Circuit

The spa at Finest Playa Mujeres is a calming oasis and it all begins with the hydrotherapy circuit. I’m a true Pisces woman and like a good fish, I feel at home and at peace in the water. The One Aqua Hydrotherapy circuit was pure bliss, I could sit in the pool under the waterfall massage all day! From the heat of the steam bath to a cold water plunge, I reconnected with my body and mind. I talked to some folks who had never had a spa experience before and convinced them to give it a try, they told me after that the One Aqua was a highlight of their trip!

I split my vacation between the beach and the spa and one day for an Isla Mujeres excursion. My first treatment at the spa was the Natura-peutic Ritual. The black mud, essential oils and healing hands left me relaxed and practically in a state of euphoria! My skin felt AMAZING. The pressure of the massage was perfect, getting at those stress knots I carry that never seem to disappear.

I also greatly enjoyed the Des Fleurs Ritual, celebrating the woman in me! Herbal scrubs, rose-scented massage and a DELICIOUS facial with lots florals, the feminine energy was flowing and I drifted on a flowery cloud for hours after the treatment. Soothing and pampering to my body and soul, the Des Fleurs treatment was a fabulous girly treat.

I have to confess, my one day on Isla Mujeres led to a bit of a crispy sunburn so I changed my last spa experience from the hot stone massage to the Aloe Metxiotl Healing treatment. This body wrap and facial was EXQUISITE, I have never had such a quick recovery from a sunburn! With aloe and seaweed and soothing hands, my irritation was alleviated and I felt fresh and ready for another outing (with extra sunblock).

This was ME time and I am so grateful for it! It’s vital that we take time for ourselves to relax and recharge our energies. My time at Finest Playa Mujeres Spa was magic and I feel like I am ready to face all the challenges of the new year and the new decade. Big thanks to my mom for taking care of Lizzy and the furbabies! I’llbringyouwith me next time!
