Capella Ixtapa Unveils Spa

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

IXTAPA, MEXICO – Sculpted from a rocky cliffside just steps from the Pacific Ocean, Capella Ixtapa’s new seaside spa draws inspiration from ancient Aztec healing traditions as it pampers spa-goers with the latest wellness techniques. From the heady scents of verbena and toronjil that linger in the air, to the soft chimes that play on the ocean breeze, to the inspiring views of sand, sea and sky, the Spa at Capella Ixtapa is designed to awaken all the senses. Its debut follows Capella Ixtapa’s own December 2008 opening as the first of four Mexican resorts in the exclusive Capella Hotels and Resorts brand.

At 6,000 square feet, the Spa at Capella Ixtapa is as intimate as it is luxurious, limited to five private treatment rooms, with shutters that open to the breathtaking ocean views and fresh coastal air, and an open-air massage area that takes full advantage of the idyllic climate. In keeping with the hideaway nature of Capella Ixtapa, which gives the 59-room resort special appeal to couples, the spa also features a private room designed exclusively for treatments à deux. Each treatment room is named for a local flower – such as the Citlaxochitl (poinsettia) – in the nahuatl dialect. Local artwork adds to the authentic ambience.
